With 35 Late Models entered for the eighth round of the Castrol FloRacing Night in America mini-series, Erb was forced to take a provisional into the feature after missing a transfer spot in his heat race and B-Main. With $22,022 on the line, Tyler advanced through the field 10 positions in the 53-lapper to finish 12th.
For the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) debut on Saturday at Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Ala.), Tyler’s third-place finish in his heat race placed him on the fifth row for the $15,000-to-win A-Main. Inching forward three spots in the 50-lap affair, Erb crossed the line in seventh.
Tyler remains in sixth in the latest LOLMDS point standings.
