“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.”

1Tyler started his National 100 weekend by registering the fastest lap in qualifications on Saturday evening, and then backed up his qualifying performance with a heat race win to lock into the pole position for Sunday's 100-lap finale.

He paced the first 52 laps of the caution-plagued event at the 4/10-mile oval before Chris Madden ultimately overtook him for the lead in the 100 lapper. Tyler ran second for the remainder of the $15,000-to-win event to record a runner-up finish.

"That was a pretty exciting race. I really didn't want to see that last caution because I had gotten into a rhythm," Erb noted. "I was kind of kicking myself when Jimmy [Owens] got back by me for the lead. I knew when Mikey [Marlar] was behind me that things were going to be tough. I could hear Jimmy under me and then the same thing with Mikey. I just kind of let it go for broke in the last four laps. About a month ago I was in the same position [at Tri City Speedway] and I wasn't going to let what happened last time, happen again.

“Unfortunately, as good as Thursday night went for us was about how bad the rest of the weekend went. We just couldn’t catch a break, but sometimes it goes that way. We’re focused now on banking some wins and big paydays this week.”

The weekend ended with Erb piloting the Best Performance Motorsports No. 1 New Point Lighting and Design/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model to a Top-5 finish in the finale for the crown jewel.

"The first 40-50 laps [of Saturday night’s finale] I was trying to kind of save my stuff, but I was slipping backwards so I knew it was time to go by the time we got to the midway point," Erb said. "I'm happy with our performance, but it's kind of disappointing too. It's so hard to get to the front of these big races, so when you get this close you really want to win. When I got to second, I made some mistakes that cost us some position on the track. With what we've learned here, hopefully we can come back and win the World 100 in September. We just have to keep digging."

Located just down the road from their St. Mary's Ohio shop, the team invaded Eldora Speedway on Thursday night as the first crown jewel event of the 2019 campaign came to life. With 92 competitors on hand for the opener, Tyler streaked to a heat-race win, which locked him into the fifth-starting spot for the 25-lap, $10,000-to-win, preliminary feature. He would go on to fight a tight race car home to an eighth-place finish.

On Friday evening, the field was again split into a pair of $10,000-to-win programs. Tyler qualified ninth fastest in his group, which positioned him in the second starting spot for his heat race.

He again found himself chasing the handle on his No. 1 entry. He crossed the finish line in 11th.

“I was riding back in eighth or so for the first 40 or so laps, and just kept telling myself to be patient until we caught lapped traffic,” Erb said. “You had to go with your gut and run the top, even though it wasn’t really the desired line. I knew I had to hit it just right.

I have been dreaming of this chance for a long time and to finally get to this point is very satisfying, but you have to stay hungry. We still have a lot of racing left this year, but we couldn't ask for a better start to the season.

"It feels really great to win here at East Bay! This is such an historic track. I led two or three races here last year but let them slip away. I could feel Josh underneath me in three and four and I knew that if I lost the race, it wasn't going to be because of a lack of effort."

After winning his heat race, Tyler started on the pole for the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win feature.
