to win Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series shootouts at Atomic

on Saturday, Dennis Erb, Jr. only competed on Friday evening
in the annual 'Buckeye Spring 50' at the former K-C Raceway.

to pull off the track early in his heat race. After unloading
a back-up car for the consolation race, Dennis rallied from
the tail to grab the sixth and final transfer spot. The Carpentersville,
Illinois ace, who now sits fourteenth in the ultra-tight LOLMDS
