They had it rolled in really nice when we started. I almost took the lead when that caution came out. I knew when I was in second to just keep following Billy, he was a hand full tonight until an opportunity presented itself. He had a good car tonight and was going to be tough to beat.

“I think he just had his momentum built up so much there he couldn’t do it, and I just kept working him and working him. I didn’t see him (exiting turn) two, I believe, and I got pretty clear and I sailed her pretty hard into (turns) three and four and never saw him.”

“I just hated all the cautions. I wasn’t very good on restarts,” Erb said after making his second-career National 100 start. “It would take me about four or five laps to get a good rhythm. Even when I was behind Madden and we were lapping cars, like I had a pretty good rhythm and he got about a straightaway or three quarters of a straightaway [ahead] and then it’s like we went the same speed for 10 laps and then we’d have a caution.

“I think the guy out front was definitely at an advantage, but I just didn’t restart very well when I was out front. I needed to try to change it up or do something, but you just really don’t know. You can only picture what’s behind you so much. But it’s part of it, it’s experience here.”
