Tyler Erb Wins Gumbo Nationals Opener at Greenville

Tyler Erb


Set to Return to Eldora Speedway this Weekend for the World 100

New Waverly, Texas (10/09/18) – Tyler Erb picked up his third-straight win of the season on Friday night at Greenville Speedway. The $4,000 triumph came behind the wheel of his New Point Lighting and Design Inc. #91 Roberts Bee Company/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model in the opening round of the 12th annual Gumbo Nationals.

“We started deep in the feature on Friday night, but we were able to get to the lead late and get the win,” Erb said. “On Saturday night I felt like we had a good chance at the win again, but electrical issues parked us early. I know I had a few drivers upset with me on Friday night because they thought I ran them dirty. I raced them as clean as I could. I hate they feel that way, but it is what it is. We’ll head up the road to Eldora this weekend and look to grab the big win.”

Friday night brought Tyler Erb to Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi) for the opening night of the 12th annual Gumbo Nationals. With 36 Super Late Models on hand, Tyler locked his spot into the opening night feature with a fourth-place finish in his heat race.

Rolling off 14th on the grid, Erb wheeled his way to the front in the 30-lapper to pick up his third-straight win and ninth overall on the season. Topping Brian Rickman, B.J. Robinson, Dane Dacus, and Eric Cooley at the line, Tyler was awarded a $4,000 payday for his efforts.

Retuning on Saturday night for the $8,000 top prize, Erb edged his way into the finale with a fourth-place finish in his heat. Starting in 15th, Tyler suffered electrical issues on lap-9 that prevented him from finishing the 70-lapper.
