Denny Eckrich led the last seven laps to score the win during the IMCA Deery Brothers Summer Series event at the West Liberty Raceway. It was an emotional night for Eckrich, and several others, after hearing the news of Mike Humphrey untimely passing. Humphrey was killed in a car accident earlier this week in Louisiana.

“He helped me get into a Black Diamond (Chassis),” Eckrich said. “He helped a lot of racers. Mike was a good guy, and he died too soon. There are a lot of heavy hearts tonight.”

Scott Hogan raced in the top five all night and finished third. Adam Johnson moved from a fourteenth starting spot to finish fourth, and Jason Morehouse finished a great night by rounding out the top five.
