Amid the Lucas Oil Late Model Series (LOLMDS) invasion of Magnolia Motor Speedway (Columbus, Miss.) for the General Tire Clash at the Mag – Presented by Big River Steel, Erb recorded two fifth-place finishes and one podium performance.

“On one hand I’m bummed because I feel like we let some wins get away from us this weekend, but on the other hand, we were really consistent and that’s a definite plus,” Erb said. “This Series is tough; consistency is key with this competition; the wins will come.”

1Kicking off the three-day event on Thursday night, Erb was one of 55 entrants for the $5,000-to-win preliminary program. Following the fifth fastest lap in his time trial group, Erb streaked to a 10-lap heat race victory, which positioned him third on the starting grid for the feature. Slipping two spots in the 25-lap affair, Tyler notched a fifth-place finish behind Bobby Pierce, Jimmy Owens, Ross Bailes, and Shane Clanton.

Unable to close the distance on red-hot Jimmy Owens in the 25-lap feature, Erb posted a third-place finish behind Owens and Josh Richards. Frank Heckenast Jr. and Michael Page rounded out the Top-5.

For the final round of the Clash at the Mag on Saturday evening, Erb’s preliminary performances locked him into the second-starting position for the $15,000-to-win finale alongside Jimmy Owens. After sliding ahead of Owens on lap 16 to assume command of the top spot for two circuits, Tyler faded late in the 100-lapper to place fifth behind Owens, Shane Clanton, Josh Richards, and Bobby Pierce.
