DENNIS ERB, JR. BUSY THIS WEEK WITH SUMMER NATIONALS
(June 16, 2019)
Wet weather continues to plague the 2019 version of the DIRTcar Summer Nationals, as today's event at Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown, Illinois was rained out. No makeup date for the $5,000 to win show was immediately announced by track or series officials.

(June 15, 2019) With showers and thunderstorms arriving early in the afternoon and with more storms on the way, tonight's DIRTcar Summer Nationals showdown at the Dirt Oval at Route 66 in Joliet, Illinois has been rained out. Officials announced that the $10,000 to win program has been rescheduled for Monday, July 1 at the pristine speedplant.

(June 14, 2019) The first $10,000 top prize of the DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour was up for grabs tonight in a visit to Sycamore Speedway in Maple Park, Illinois. Dennis Erb, Jr. stopped the clock second fastest in his group during time trials and later scored a convincing heat race triumph. By virtue of drawing the one pill following preliminary action, Dennis was slated to start the main event from the pole position. However, intensifying rain shortly before the start of the A-Main caused series officials to postpone the headliner to Monday, July 8.

(June 13, 2019) The first race of the 2019 DIRTcar Summer Nationals took place earlier tonight at Kankakee County Speedway in Kankakee, Illinois. Dennis Erb, Jr. knocked down the fourth quickest lap in his group during qualifying prior to grabbing the second transfer spot through his heat race. After starting the $5,000 to win main event from the outside of the third row, Dennis was battling hard for a top five finish when motor problems caused him to retire late in the 40-lap distance and relegated him to a disappointing seventeenth place showing.

(June 12, 2019) Due to rain, tonight's DIRTcar Summer Nationals lid lifter at Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Illinois has been postponed. The $5,000 to win program for the Super Late Models has been rescheduled for June 26. The month-long tour will now kick off its 2019 season on Thursday, June 13 at Kankakee County Speedway in Kankakee, Illinois with a similar $5,000 to win show.

ERB, JR. STEADY THROUGHOUT DLM DREAM WEEKEND
(June 9, 2019)
The Dennis Erb Racing team made their way to the 1/2-mile, high-banked Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio from June 6-8 for the 25th Annual 'Dirt Late Model Dream,' which got underway with a pair of $10,000 to win Twin 25 preliminary programs. On Thursday night at the "Big E," Dennis Erb, Jr. grabbed the fifth and final transfer spot through his heat race prior to picking off five competitors during the 25-lap main event to wind up fifteenth in the final rundown. At Eldora on Friday evening in a similar $10,000 to win showdown, Dennis finished sixth in his stacked heat race, second in his B-Main, and seventeenth in the 25-lap sprint.

When Saturday rolled around at the hallowed speedplant, a huge crowd filed in to Eldora Speedway to witness one lucky driver walk away with a $125,000 payday. Dennis was involved in one of the craziest heat races in recent memory - a 15-lap prelim that was halted on lap ten when a sudden downpour caused the lead cars to pile up in turns one and two. After repairs were made to those running in heat five, Dennis returned to the racetrack and appeared to finish second until Scott Bloomquist was disqualified for weighing in light at the scales, which gave the heat race triumph to Erb. The Carpentersville, Illinois ace then started the 100-lap crown jewel extravaganza from the outside of the front row, but battled a tight racecar throughout the 'Dirt Late Model Dream' and eventually pulled into the pit area to settle for a twenty-sixth place effort.
