Dennis Erb, Jr. Ready for Ambitious
Week of Racing After Magnolia Podium Effort!
(May 19, 2020)
The Dennis Erb Racing team was in the pit area at Magnolia Motor
Speedway in Columbus, Mississippi on Friday night, May 15 for
the 'Magnolia Mayhem 40.' The unsanctioned contest, which was
scheduled to run on Thursday and pushed back a day due to rain
showers, drew 41 entrants to the Magnolia State oval to vie
for the $5,000 winner's check. Dennis Erb, Jr. timed in tenth
quickest in Group B during the qualifying session before blasting
up to second in his heat race.
Dennis then started the 40-lap main event from the outside
of the fourth row and vaulted to as high as second in the running
order. The Carpentersville, Illinois ace appeared headed towards
a runner-up performance until the waning laps when he slowed
for what he thought would be a caution flag. Dennis eventually
slipped to third before throttling back up and finishing on
the podium behind only victor Jimmy Owens and runner-up Timothy
Culp. Complete results from "The Mag" can be located
online at www.magnoliadirt.com.
With a hectic racing week planned, the #28 team has made the
trip to Golden Isles Speedway, as the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt
Series schedule fires back up at the Brunswick, Georgia speedplant.
Dennis is slated to enter the $7,000 to win event held later
tonight, May 19 and a similar $7,000 to win show at GIS on Wednesday,
May 20. Both of these "Lucas Oil Reopening Tour" races
can be watched LIVE with a subscription to LucasOilRacing.tv
or on the series Facebook page at www.facebook.com/lucasdirt.
Thursday will be a scheduled travel day, as the Dennis Erb
Racing team embarks on the long voyage to Jackson, Minnesota
for this weekend's lucrative 'Drydene Double Down Invitational.'
The World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series tour
will make it's first-ever visit to the state-of-the-art Jackson
Motorplex on May 22-23. Friday's weekend opener at Jackson will
boast a $6,000 payday while the 60-lap grand finale on Saturday
will feature a whopping $20,000 top prize. Dennis currently
sits tied for fifth in the latest WOOLMS point standings heading
into the 'Drydene Double Down Invitational.' More information
