Tyler Erb breaks out the broom in Aussie Finales
By Ben Shelton (New Waverly, TX) -- Tyler Erb ended his Australian invasion with a bang. The driver of the Case Construction #10 HDD Racing/ XR1 Rocket Chassis Super Late Model swept the final two events and along the way also claimed the Di Candilo Steel City USA Invasion Tour Championship.
“Heading to Australia to race, I honestly didn’t know what to expect,” Erb commented. “So to be able to win three out of the four races I entered was just awesome. I really want to thank Justin Pearson, Cameron Pearson, Kellee Pearson, Phil Pottage and HDD Racing for giving me the incredible opportunity to race in Australia. Everyone treated me like family, and I met so many new friends while I was there.”
Tyler Erb made the third stop of the Di Candilo Steel City USA Invasion Tour on Friday night by traveling to Collie Speedway (Collie, Western Australia). In a field of 27 Super Late Models, Erb qualified fastest before capturing a heat race win.
