Dennis Erb, Jr. Finishes Off
Lucas Oil Season this Weekend in Rhino Ag DTWC
(October 18, 2018)
The Dennis Erb Racing team returned to the hallowed high-banks
of Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio on October 12-13 for the
rain-postponed 'World 100.' Following yet another rain-out on
Friday night, the day/night doubleheader at the "Big E"
on Saturday kicked off with $10,000 to win Twin 25s during the
afternoon. Dennis Erb, Jr. knocked down the fiftieth fastest
lap overall during the qualifying session prior to placing sixth
in his stacked heat race. After grabbing the fourth and final
transfer spot through his B-Main, Dennis moved up three positions
during the 25-lap daytime sprint to garner a twentieth place
During the nighttime portion of the double-dip at the 1/2-mile
Buckeye State facility, all eyes were fixated on the $51,000
top prize and the famed globe trophies in the 48th Annual 'World
100.' Dennis finished fifth in his loaded heat race and ninth
in his B-Main in part due to being underpowered from a minor
engine issue. Unfortunately, the Carpentersville, Illinois ace
was unable to transfer into the 100-lap crown jewel extravaganza
that was won by Tim McCreadie. Full results from Eldora Speedway
can be obtained by clicking on www.eldoraspeedway.com.
Dennis and his #28 team will now close out the 2018 Lucas Oil
Late Model Dirt Series season on October 19-20 in the 38th edition
of the 'Rhino Ag Dirt Track World Championship' at Portsmouth
Raceway Park in Portsmouth, Ohio. Hot laps and two rounds of
qualifying heat races are scheduled to take place at PRP on
Friday night, while consolation races, the $3,000 to win 'Jim
Dunn Memorial' for non-qualifiers, and the 100-lap 'Dirt Track
World Championship' are all slated for Saturday evening at the
track located on the banks of the Ohio River. As has been the
case in recent years, the winner of the DTWC will receive a
whopping $100,000 payday. Dennis comes into the crown jewel
spectacular tied for eleventh in the current LOLMDS point standings.
