July 14, 2019 - Tyler Erb Grabs Lucas Oil Opener at Tri-City

Kicking off a four-race weekend, Erb hit the ground running in Miller Welders qualifying at Tri City Speedway (Pontoon Beach, Illinois) by registering the fastest lap over the 31-car field at the 3/8-mile oval. He then backed up his qualifying performance with a heat race win to lock into the pole position for the Hoker Trucking 50.

1For the first 22 laps of the finale, Erb chased Jimmy Owens for the top spot. On lap 23 Tyler edged ahead for the first time to take the lead, and led the next four circuits before losing the lead on lap 27. Not to be denied though, the Texas native blasted back to the lead on lap 30 and went on to pace the final 20 circuits for his fifth series win of 2019.

Mike Marlar, Tim McCreadie, Jimmy Owens and Earl Pearson Jr. completed the Top-5 finishers.

"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.”

On Friday night the team again competed at Tri City Speedway in another $12,000-to-win event. Unfortunately, luck would not be on Erb's side throughout the night, and he was only able to manage a 15th-place finish in the Napa Know How 50.

Saturday found LOLMDS action shifting west to Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, Missouri) for the first night of a doubleheader at the CMH Diamond Nationals. Thirty-nine competitors entered the $15,000-to-win event, and Tyler earned the 22nd-starting spot for the feature via B-Main action. In the finale, he advanced to a 16th-place finish.

On Sunday night the final night of the Diamond Nationals was held. Unfortunately, Tyler's luck wouldn't improve. After starting 11th in the feature, he spun late in the going and was able to only rebound to a 21st-place finish.

Tyler is currently second in the latest LOLMDS standings, and he continues to lead the Rookie of the Year battle.
