(CARPENTERSVILLE, ILLINOIS) For the first time since the completion of the ‘DIRTcar Nationals’ back in February, the World of Outlaws Case Construction Late Model Series returned to competition on March 25-26 at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina. A pair of special events at the “Place Your Momma Warned You About” made up the annual ‘Rock Gault Memorial.’ On Friday night in the $10,000 to win weekend opener, Dennis Erb, Jr. stopped the clock fifth quickest in Group A during qualifying before running second in his heat race. After drawing the outside of the third row for the start of the 40-lap feature, Dennis moved up two spots during the contest to land in the fourth finishing position behind only victor Michael Brown, Ryan Gustin, and Max Blair!
At Cherokee Speedway on Saturday evening, a $20,000 top prize was up for grabs in the ‘Rock Gault Memorial’ grand finale. Dennis knocked down the fourth fastest lap in Group B during time trials and later placed second once again in his loaded heat race. The Carpentersville, Illinois native then drew the outside of the third row for the 60-lap headliner and ultimately wound up finishing right where he started… in the sixth position. With his strong runs over the weekend in the Palmetto State, Dennis now finds himself atop the WOOLMS point standings by thirty markers over reigning champion Brandon Sheppard! Complete results from both weekend races can be found online at www.woolms.com.
Dennis Erb Racing was scheduled to bring the coveted World of Outlaws Late Model Series point lead into Farmer City Raceway in Farmer City, Illinois on April 1-2, but the two-day ‘Illini 100’ weekend was nixed today by inclement weather. Instead, Dennis and his #28 team will enjoy the upcoming weekend off from any racing action. The next scheduled WOOLMS events will take place at Atomic Speedway in Alma, Ohio on April 22-23.
