Erb, Jr. Claims Pair of Top
Fives in Home State; Thunder Mountain Double-Dip Next
(September 25, 2020)
Dennis Erb Racing was busy in their home state of Illinois from
September 15-19 in a trio of high-profile races at three different
Land of Lincoln venues. Things kicked off last Tuesday night
at Fairbury Speedway in downtown Fairbury, Illinois with a 'One
for the Road' show that boasted a hefty $15,000 top prize. Dennis
Erb, Jr. timed in seventh quickest in Group A during the qualifying
session before finishing third in his stacked heat race. After
starting the 50-lap main event from the inside of the fifth
row, Dennis immediately pulled into the infield at the drop
of the green flag with mechanical issues and unfortunately retired
from the DIRTcar Racing headliner in the twenty-second position.
At Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Illinois on Friday evening, a
$5,000 winner's check was on the line in a rain-postponed DIRTcar
Summer Nationals program. Dennis stopped the clock second fastest
in his group during time trials, won his heat race, and later
drove up to the second spot in the caution-free feature to land
a strong runner-up performance behind only victor Jeremiah Hurst.
In the final event of the week on Saturday at Sycamore Speedway
in Maple Park, Illinois, Dennis placed third in his heat race
prior to advancing past four competitors during the $10,000
to win 'Harvest 50' to finish fourth behind only race winner
Garrett Alberson, Ryan Unzicker, and Jason Feger. Full results
from each of these races can be accessed online at www.fairburyspeedway.com,
The #28 team will be back in action with the World of Outlaws
Morton Buildings Late Model Series this weekend (September 25-26)
in a doubleheader in the Keystone State. The national touring
series will make their debut at Thunder Mountain Speedway in
Knox Dale, Pennsylvania, as a $10,000 paycheck will be up for
grabs later tonight and on Saturday, September 26. Dennis comes
into the double-dip at Thunder Mountain Speedway sixth in the
latest version of the WOOLMS point standings. More information
