Lanigan Gets No. 15 At Selinsgrove

Eckert again fell just short of ending his season-long winless streak in WoO LMS action, but continued his streak of solid performances at Selinsgrove. In finishing runner-up to Lanigan for the second straight year, Eckert scored his fourth top-five finish in the four WoO LMS races held over the last two years at the track where he began his Late Model career in the mid-1980s.

“It’s always great to come back and race near home,” said Eckert, who finished third in Saturday’s Showdown on Sand Hill behind Tim McCreadie and Clanton. “Our car was really good. We probably missed a little bit on tire choice, but still we got a second. That’s pretty good.”

Clanton’s third-place effort came in a backup car after his primary mount suffered mechanical issues during hot laps. His backup machine proved up to the challenge, however, as he bagged his second top-three finish in as many nights.

“We had to get Old Faithful here out,” said Clanton, who has improved his performance since debuting a new Capital car in a near victory Aug. 22 at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Mich. “It’s amazing what all we’ve went through during the year. To struggle as bad as we have and change some stuff on this car like the other car, this one’s as good as the other one. At least we got two good pieces now.”
