(CARPENTERSVILLE, ILLINOIS) The #28 team had a pair of $12,000 to win Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series shootouts at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio and Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana circled on their racing calendar for April 13-14. With early rain showers wiping out the ‘Indiana Icebreaker’ at Brownstown on Saturday, Dennis Erb, Jr. only competed on Friday evening in the annual ‘Buckeye Spring 50’ at the former K-C Raceway.
Dennis laid down the tenth fastest lap in Group A during qualifying, but a serious vibration on his Black Diamond mount caused him to pull off the track early in his heat race. After unloading a back-up car for the consolation race, Dennis rallied from the tail to grab the sixth and final transfer spot. The Carpentersville, Illinois ace, who now sits fourteenth in the ultra-tight LOLMDS point standings, then worked his way past six competitors during the course of the 50-lap headliner to leave the Buckeye State with a sixteenth place showing.

With the weather forecast looking dry this upcoming weekend (April 20-22) in the Mid-Atlantic, the Dennis Erb Racing team will look to finally get back into the groove of consistent racing in a huge Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series tripleheader with over $130,000 worth of prize money on the line. Up first will be a visit to Sharon Speedway in Hartford, Ohio on Friday for the $12,000 to win ‘Steel Valley 50,’ while Saturday’s stop at the legendary Hagerstown Speedway in Hagerstown, Maryland will also pay a $12,000 top prize in the 37th edition of the ‘Stanley Schetrompf Classic.’ The triple shot of racing action will then wrap up for the national touring stars on Sunday with the $10,000 to win ‘Rumble by the River’ at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania.
