ERB, JR. CLIMBS TO FOURTH IN
TOYOTA KNOXVILLE 50 AT TAZ!
6, 2018) Dennis Erb Racing ventured south to
the bad-fast Tazewell Speedway in Tazewell, Tennessee on Friday
night, May 4 for the annual running of the 'Toyota Knoxville
50.' The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series presided over the
one-day throwdown in the Volunteer State and a $12,000 top prize
was on the line. Dennis Erb, Jr. timed in thirteenth quickest
overall during the qualifying session prior to placing fourth
in his loaded heat race. Dennis then drove his #28 Black Diamond
racecar past six competitors during the 50-lap affair to leave

After Saturday's annual 'Ralph Latham Memorial' was washed
out at Florence Speedway in Union, Kentucky, the #28 team quickly
headed back north to LaSalle Speedway in LaSalle, Illinois and
barely made it in time to compete in the $3,000 to win 'Land
of Lincoln 40,' which was sanctioned by the Lucas Oil MLRA Series.
Dennis ran second in heat race action and had vaulted up to
third in the running order in the 40-lapper when he unfortunately
slowed to draw a lap 22 caution flag. The culprit was a dirt
clod or a rock that hit the fuel pump, which cut off the supply
of fuel to the motor and relegated Dennis to a disappointing
eighteenth place performance. Complete results from both weekend
races can be accessed online at www.lucasdirt.com
