And I ran eighth at Knoxville and run third here,” Erb said. “I’m just maturing a little bit behind the wheel and trying to take care of my equipment … I don’t know, it just takes time. I’m only 21, so we’ll just have to see what happens next year.

“It was awesome in the feature. I really honestly didn’t get to race with Jimmy (Owens) there. We got to (a lapped car) and I just made a mistake and drove it into the fence off of (turn) two. And I was like, ‘Man, I just need to slow down and maintain and run third and get out of this place.’ It was an awesome, awesome run, and I’m super proud of my team."
