Dennis Erb, Jr. Leads Laps at
Duck River and Lands on Podium; Tied for Fifth in Points!
(March 12, 2020)
The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series season
heated back up for the #28 team on March 6-7 in the Volunteer
State of Tennessee. On Friday night at Duck River Raceway Park
in Wheel, Tennessee, Dennis Erb, Jr. laid down the third quickest
lap in Group A during the qualifying session prior to securing
a heat race triumph. After drawing the pole position for the
$10,000 to win main event, Dennis led laps 3-15 and fought hard
for the win up until the very last circuit in the 50-lapper.
At the checkered flag, the Carpentersville, Illinois standout
was a close third behind only victor Josh Richards and runner-up
At Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee on Saturday
evening, a $12,000 top prize was up for grabs in the annual
running of the 'Tennessee Tipoff.' Dennis timed in fifteenth
fastest in Group B during qualifying before running sixth in
his stacked heat race and fourth in his B-Main. After utilizing
a series provisional to gain access into the 60-lap headliner,
Dennis was able to improve eleven spots during the course of
the contest to land in the twelfth finishing position. He now
finds himself tied for fifth in the latest version of the heated
WOOLMS point standings following the Tennessee two-step. Complete
results from both weekend duels can be accessed online at www.woolms.com.
"We had a good points weekend in Tennessee, but it would
have been great to have gotten a win at Duck River last Friday,"
quoted Erb, Jr. recently. "The car was fast all night long
and we led some laps there early in the race. Looking back,
I should have just settled for second place, but I was going
for the win and wound up third. Then at Smoky Mountain on Saturday,
we didn't draw a good number for qualifying and our lap there
put us behind for the rest of the night."
Dennis Erb Racing will take the upcoming March 13-14 weekend
off from racing competition, but they plan to jump right back
into action on March 20-21 in the states of Ohio and Indiana.
The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series - weather and coronavirus
pandemic pending - will preside over a pair of $12,000 to win
specials at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio next Friday and at
Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana next Saturday. You
