(CARPENTERSVILLE, ILLINOIS) The World of Outlaws Case Construction Late Model Series took the #28 team north to Mississippi Thunder Speedway in Fountain City, Wisconsin from May 5-7 for the lucrative ‘Dairyland Showdown.’ The tripleheader weekend kicked off with a pair of $10,000 to win preliminary programs. On Thursday night in the opener, Dennis Erb, Jr. earned Fast Time honors overall during the qualifying session before finishing second in his stacked heat race and seventh in the 40-lap feature event. At MTS on Friday evening, Dennis ran seventh in his heat race and fifth in his B-Main before utilizing a series provisional and advancing to fourteenth in the final rundown of the 40-lapper.
In Saturday’s grand finale in the Badger State, a whopping $50,000 payday was up for grabs to wrap up the ‘Dairyland Showdown.’ Dennis stopped the clock sixth fastest in Group B during time trials prior to placing fifth in his loaded heat race. Following a triumph in his B-Main, the Carpentersville, Illinois was able to steer past thirteen competitors during the 75-lap headliner. At the checkers, the current WOOLMS point leader found himself in the fifth spot behind only victor Mike Marlar, Tyler Erb, Josh Richards, and James Giossi!
