With the 124-car field split into two groups for a pair of $12,000-to-win preliminary features, Tyler secured his spot into the prelim with a seventh-to-fourth run in his heat race. Clawing forward one spot in the 25-lap affair, Erb recorded a 12th-place outing.
Earning the sixth-starting position for his heat race later Thursday evening, Erb was involved in a tangle that cut down a tire, relegating him into the B-Main. Needing to place second or better to make the $1,002,022-to-win Eldora Million, Tyler charged from the 10th row to finish eighth, missing a transfer position by six cars.
On Friday afternoon as the 28th annual Dirt Late Model Dream got underway with a pair of prelims, Tyler timed in 15th-fastest in his group before capturing a heat race win. Losing one spot in the 25-lap preliminary feature, Erb notched a third-place finish, which came behind Chris Madden and Brian Shirley.
Starting in second in his heat race on Saturday evening, Erb locked his spot into the $128,000-to-win Dirt Late Model Dream with a second-place finish behind Chris Ferguson. He was running in 16th when continuous rain postponed the remainder of the 100-lapper to September 7th.
