Dennis Erb, Jr. Nabs Podium
Finish at Rugged EAMS; Gateway Dirt Nationals Next!
(November 15, 2017)
Dennis Erb, Jr. concluded his recent southern swing on November
10-12 with a visit to East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix
City, Alabama for the 43rd edition of the 'National 100.' In
Friday's $5,000 to win weekend opener, which spilled over to
Saturday afternoon due to unsafe track conditions, Dennis qualified
second fastest in Group A during time trials to earn the third
starting spot for the 43-lap feature, but a hole in the radiator
during Saturday's race dropped him to fourteenth in the final
finishing order. At EAMS in Saturday night's $5,000 to win program,
Dennis laid down the fifth quickest lap in Group A during qualifying
and later wound up ninth in the final rundown of the rough and
By virtue of racking up the seventh most points during preliminary
action, Dennis was in line to start seventh on the grid in Sunday
evening's 'National 100,' which once again boasted a $20,000
paycheck and was delayed for hours due to rain. Dennis, who
was the defending race winner and looking to repeat in the 100-lap
affair, ran as high as second in the attrition-filled special
and was the only driver not to pit for tires or any kind of
repairs. The Carpentersville, Illinois native eventually placed
third and on the podium alongside victor Dale McDowell and runner-up
Scott Bloomquist. Complete results from the long, extended weekend
at EAMS can be viewed by clicking on www.eamsdirt.com.
Dennis Erb Racing has no more events on their 2017 calendar
until the 2nd edition of the 'Gateway Dirt Nationals' takes
place on December 14-16 at The Dome at America's Center in St.
Louis, Missouri. Things will kick off on the indoor dirt racing
surface on that Thursday with a special "Race of Champions,"
which pays $5,000 to the winner. Another $5,000 top prize will
be on the line during the preliminary night on Friday before
Saturday's Championship race, which features a hefty $30,000
payday. More information on Dirt in December can be viewed by
