Set and Ready, Christian Eckes is returning with Venturini Motorsports to Salem Speedway for the ARCA Racing Series, Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA 200 this weekend. Eckes is now in his third season with Venturini.
Just 17-years-old, Eckes is driving the No. 15 for his third start at Salem Speedway. His best finish was in last season’s spring race after leading 91-laps and finishing eighth.
Looking for more this season, Eckes was not happy with his Nashville showing two weeks ago when he finished eighth and he’s anxious to show better results at Salem.
“After a really unsatisfying showing in Nashville, I’m ready to get back on track and deliver the results I’m capable of achieving behind the wheel.” says Eckes.
“Our JBL Toyota showed a lot of speed during last week’s test. This is one of my favorite places on tour – expecting solid results this weekend. (Kevin Reed) and the guys on this fifteen-team have put together a great car for this week.”
The 2016 Snowball Derby winner has a focus on advancing to the top levels of NASCAR and Eckes fifteen ARCA starts are steering him in the right direction. With his first victory yet to come, Eckes has two second-place finishes along with four top-five and 11 top-ten finishes. He leads Venturini drivers with 275-laps led in 2017.
The Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA 200 is broadcast on MAVTV this Sunday, April 22nd at 2 pm with live timing and scoring also available at arcaracing.com
