September 24, 2021
Eckes won the Victoria's Voice Foundation 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Friday night.
ANALYSIS
Eckes was a Top 10 driver all night, but his star would really rise late in this one. The driver of the No. 98 Toyota would pass Todd Gilliland for the lead with just 4 laps to go. Eckes would then hold off Ben Rhodes and Matt Crafton over the closing laps before the race would end under yellow due to a crash involving Tyler Hill. It was Eckes' first-career win in his 44th truck series start.

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.
