1"I am super-excited to get this opportunity to work with Randall Edwards, Eric, and Kelly," Erb said. "This is a dream come true for me. 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. He wouldn't get the best of starts in the feature, and as a result he initially slipped back to the fifth position. Over the course of the ensuing laps he began clawing his way forward, and on lap 13 he took control of the lead from Brandon Sheppard. Once out front he never looked back on his way to his second LOLMDS win of the season and his fourth victory overall. Josh Richards, Sheppard, Austin Hubbard and Don O'Neal rounded out the Top-5 finishers.

1Returning on Tuesday night for the $5,000 top prize, Tyler registered the fastest time overall in a field of 56 cars before capturing a 10-lap heat race win. Rolling off on the front row, Erb jumped into the lead on the drop of the green flag and led wire-to-wire en route to his fifth win of the season over Earl Pearson Jr., Dennis Erb Jr., Brandon Sheppard, and Jimmy Owens.

On Wednesday night, Erb followed up the fourth fastest time in his qualifying group with a runner-up finish in his heat behind Brian Shirley. Earning the 8th-starting position for the $7,000-to-win A-Main, Tyler improved six spots reeling in a 2nd place finish behind Jonathan Davenport with Josh Richards, Brandon Overton, and Brando Sheppard completing the Top-5 finishers.

The following night for the fourth round of the Wrisco Winternationals, Tyler secured his spot into the main event with a 10-lap heat race victory. Starting in 3rd, Erb overtook Kyle Bronson for the top spot on lap 8 but a handful of cautions prevented him from building an early lead. Following late-race contract after trying to defend the top spot, Erb came up short in the final laps to place 3rd behind Hudson O’Neal and Earl Pearson Jr. with Devin Moran and Kyle Bronson rounding out the Top-5.

On Friday night, Tyler Erb entered the fifth round of the 43rd annual Wrisco Winternationals at East Bay Raceway Park (Gibsonton, Florida). He qualified second-fastest in his group in time trials, and then won his heat race to lock into the third-starting spot for the $12,000-to-win feature event. Tyler jumped to the second position early in the feature as he set his sights on race leader, Jonathan Davenport. Erb powered into the top spot on lap 15 and paced the field for the next 22 circuits. Following a late-race restart Davenport slipped past for the lead. Erb continued to apply pressure to Daveport, but on a rubbered-up track he was forced to settle into a runner-up finish. Earl Pearson Jr., Scott Bloomquist and Devin Moran completed the Top-3 finishers.

On Saturday evening 41 cars returned for the final night at East Bay Raceway Park. Tyler won his heat race to lock into the fourth-starting spot for the 50-lap feature. He ran in the Top-5 throughout the main event before surging late to finish second behind race winner, Jonathan Davenport. Devin Moran, Tanner English and Justin Williams.

Sunday night's LOLMDS Speedweeks finale at Bubba Raceway Park (Ocala, Florida) fell victim to Mother Nature.

Tyler currently sits in second in the LOLMDS point standings. For full results these events, please visit please visit www.LucasDirt.com.

I want to thank Wayne Childress of New Point Lighting and Design, and Billy Franklin for helping us out this year."
