Christian Eckes
Kyle Busch Motorsports
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The 19-year-old Eckes will be taking on his first full season of truck series competition this year, and he will be one of the top contenders to win Rookie of the Year honors. After two seasons of part-time racing for Kyle Busch Motorsports, Eckes will get his first full season ride in the No. 18 KBM Toyota Tundra. The youngster grabbed three poles, three Top-5 and four Top-10 finishes in limited action last season (eight starts), and he's poised to do much more in 2020. Veteran crew chief Rudy Fugle will lead the way and Eckes will be expected to do some big things. The 2019 ARCA Series champion has loads of talent, and this spot in the rankings is really the floor as far as potential to perform this season. Read Past Outlooks
Runner-up Finish at Kansas Speedway
Gander Outdoors Truck
July 25, 2020
Eckes finished second in the E.P.T. 200 Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway Saturday afternoon.
ANALYSIS
The KBM youngster would take the lead from the drop of the green flag and Eckes would lead the first 6 laps of the race. His No. 18 Toyota was strong, but he'd eventually give way to Zane Smith. Eckes would be a Top 10 drier the rest of the way before he would mount a late charge. The final 22 laps would see him pick off several positions and race into second-place. Eckes would fall .32-seconds short of Matt Crafton and the checkered flag, but would pick up his third Top-5 finish of the season.
