Opening the 2021 campaign with the 15th Annual Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout, Erb has already had his share of success in only six starts thus far. Invading FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway for the six-night miniseries Erb never finished outside the Top-10, which included two victories and two runner-up performances.

"Man, it’s awesome," said the driver of the Industrial Resourcing Group No. 1 Best Performance Motorsports/ Rocket Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.

Rolling off 17th, Tyler navigated through the field early and was up to second by lap 20 to challenge race-long pacesetter Jonathan Davenport.

Jason Papich, Mike Marlar, and Bobby Pierce rounded out the Top-5.

In a field of 62 Late Models on Friday, Tyler laid down the third fastest lap in his time trial group before picking up an eight-lap heat race victory.

Tyler continued to work his way forward but was unable to close the distance on himself and race-long pacesetter Jonathan Davenport, marking him second on the rundown behind Davenport at the checkers. Ricky Thornton Jr., Brian Shirley, and Bobby Pierce rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

“I got to follow Jason for 100 laps this weekend. That made it a little bit easier,” Erb said. “I kind of saw what he was doing and tried to figure out where I could pass him. I knew it was probably gonna rubber. I could feel it. I didn’t want to show him my nose so when I got around the outside, so I just kept ducking down low and made it work. Congrats to him and Spencer. We all ran top three two nights in a row, so that’s pretty cool.”
