Update: Eckert will drop off the tour in 2019. It will be the first time that he’s missed an Outlaw race since the series was re-born in 2004. He’s going back to owning his own car and racing closer to home due to a lack of funding for the racing program.
Bradon Overton: Overton recently signed with Rum Runner Racing. Joey Coulter has stepped out of a full-time driving role and dropped on the car owner hat. The team ventured to Arizona a few weeks ago. The remaining plans for the team remain unclear for 2019.
