Eckrich Puts Stamp On Dominant Season
HAMPTON – The finale race of AdvoCare We Build Champions took place at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the AdvoCare We Build Champions 300. Scott Eckrich came into the race with a 19 point lead over James Krahula, 24 over Ricky Hardin, and 27 over Tommy Rhyne. Eckrich would lead the most laps of the event, but would fall back to 10th after having to make a extra pit stop towards the end of the race.
