Dennis Erb, Jr. Readies for
First Four Summer Nationals Races Following DLM Dream
(June 13, 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. You can view full results from

Dennis and his #28 team will take advantage of the opportunity
to race closer to home this upcoming weekend, as they have plans
to enter the first four DIRTcar Summer Nationals battles from
June 13-16. Things will kick off later tonight with a $5,000
to win throwdown at Kankakee County Speedway in Kankakee, Illinois,
while the action will quickly shift to Sycamore Speedway in
Maple Park, Illinois on Friday and the Dirt Oval at Route 66
in Joliet, Illinois on Saturday for a pair of $10,000 to win
contests. The weekend finale, which boasts a $5,000 top prize,
will take place on Sunday at Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown,
Illinois. While he will not follow the entire "Hell Tour"
in 2019, Dennis, who is a three-time Summer Nationals Champion,
does have over ten series races on his tentative upcoming schedule.
