Dennis Erb Racing Starts 2020
Season on WOOLMS Trail with Pair of Top Ten Runs
(January 8, 2020)
Shortly after the start of the New Year, Dennis Erb, Jr. and
41 other competitors made the long trek to Vado Speedway Park
in Vado, New Mexico to lift the lid on the 2020 World of Outlaws
Morton Buildings Late Model Series campaign. The inaugural running
of the 'Battle at the Border' featured a trio of national series
battles from January 3-5, which kicked off with a pair of $5,000
to win contests. On Friday night in "The Land of Enchantment,"
Dennis started off the weekend by finishing sixth in his loaded
heat race and second in his B-Main prior to passing nine competitors
during the 30-lap main event en route to a solid tenth place
showing. In a similar show on Saturday evening, Dennis placed
fifth in his heat race and scored a triumph in his B-Main before
advancing up to twelfth in the 30-lapper.
The Carpentersville, Illinois standout then found some additional
speed in the 'Battle at the Border' grand finale on Sunday at
Vado. After stopping the clock second fastest in Group B during
qualifying and running third in his stacked heat race, Dennis
rolled off from the outside of the sixth row in the 75-lap headliner.
He then turned up the wick on the stout competition and climbed
up inside of the top five late in the feature distance, as he
gunned for the $15,000 top prize. At the completion of the race,
Dennis found himself sixth in the final rundown behind only
victor Cade Dillard, Brandon Sheppard, Darrell Lanigan, Scott
Bloomquist, and Ricky Weiss.
Following the conclusion of the three-day 'Battle at the Border,'
Dennis currently sits eighth in the World of Outlaws Morton
Buildings Late Model Series point standings - 44 markers behind
leader and defending Champion Brandon Sheppard. You can view

from February 3-8, and at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville,
Florida from February 10-15. In all and weather pending, Dennis
will enter fourteen Super Late Model specials in a matter of
