March 31, 2019 - Erb Continues Red-Hot Season; Wins Thaw Brawl Thriller at LaSalle

“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 want to thank Eric Brock and Jeff Babcock and all my sponsors for giving me this opportunity. I couldn’t be more excited about how this year has started. We’ve got a long year still, but everything’s going real well right now.”

1After seeing Saturday’s program washed away by rain, thirty-one Super Late Models took to Tony Izzo Jr.’s La Salle Speedway on a very cool Sunday afternoon. Via preliminary action, Tyler earned the 11th-starting spot for the 75-lap, $15,000-to-win finale.

For the first half of the race Erb bided his time as he ran just inside the Top 10. However, as the race entered its latter stages he began to pick up the pace as the front runners negotiated lapped traffic. Erb used the high side to go to the lead on lap 64 but surrendered the top spot two circuits later.

Despite losing the lead, Tyler would not be denied. On lap 72 he shot to the cushion in turns one and two and propelled himself to the lead. Erb went on to leading the closing laps to claim the $15,000 prize, which marked the richest of his career. Pierce, Chris Simpson, Dennis Erb Jr. and Ricky Weiss completed the Top-5 finishers.

The victory was the sixth overall on the year for Tyler Erb.
