Image(Attica, OH) The fans of Attica Raceway Park have spoken and voted Rick Eckert's World of Outlaws Late Model Series feature win on July 30th as their favorite DIRTcar Late Model moment of the 2010 race season. Eckert's victory won the poll, voted on by the fans on atticaracewaypark.com, by collecting nearly 50% of the total votes.

Rick Eckert displayed his cool even when nothing was going right for the York, Pennsylvania driver during the World of Outlaws visit to "Ohio's Finest Racing" speed plant. After turning fourth quick time, his car blew up, forcing him to the tail of his heat in a back-up car. He then had to race through the B-main to gain an 18th starting spot in the feature. Then, a hole in his radiator caused his crew to quickly change the water cooling device during a red flag, sending him to the tail. He then steadily worked his way to the front using the extreme bottom groove, passing Josh Richards with just three laps remaining to earn his second World of Outlaws Late Model victory of the season.

Over the off-season atticaracewaypark.com will be conducting several polls to help determine what was the greatest moment of the 2010 season at Attica Raceway Park.

Each poll will feature five events that stuck out in the minds of the Attica Raceway Park staff from the past season for one particular division. The fine fans of "Ohio's Finest Racing" speed plant will then have a month to vote (you can only vote once per day) and help determine what was the most exciting event for that division. Once each division has a winner we will post them all together and let the fans ultimately decide what was the greatest moment of 2010 at Attica Raceway Park.
