(CARPENTERSVILLE, ILLINOIS) Dennis Erb, Jr. and his #28 team ventured to the Southeast over the October 2-3 weekend for a pair of $10,000 to win World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series tilts in the states of South Carolina and Tennessee. On Friday night, the renowned Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina played host to the ‘Mike Duvall Memorial.’ Dennis stopped the clock seventh fastest in Group A during the qualifying session before running fourth in his stacked heat race. After starting the 50-lap contest from the inside of the seventh row, Dennis eventually crossed underneath the checkers in the fourteenth finishing position.
Another $10,000 top prize was up for grabs on Saturday evening at 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, Tennessee. Dennis clicked off the tenth fastest lap in Group A during time trials and later ran third in heat race action. The Carpentersville, Illinois ace then rolled off from the inside of the sixth row in the 50-lapper and was able to pick off four competitors en route to a solid seventh place showing. Dennis still finds himself sixth in the latest version of the WOOLMS point standings exiting the Volunteer State. Full results from both venues can be accessed by clicking on www.woolms.com.
With the WOOLMS tour sitting idle this upcoming weekend, Dennis Erb Racing will take the opportunity to race closer to home in a trio of MARS Racing Series battles in the Land of Lincoln from October 9-11. A trip to Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Illinois will kick things off later tonight with a $5,000 to win program, while Saturday will take the #28 team to Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois for the $15,000 to win ‘FALS Frenzy.’ The tripleheader weekend will then wrap up with the MARS Racing Series finale on Sunday at LaSalle Speedway in LaSalle, Illinois, as a $10,000 top prize will be up for grabs.
