Drawing a stout field of 70 Late Models for the three-day event, Erb followed up a fourth-place showing in his heat with a consolation victory. With $15,000 on the line in the feature, Tyler pulled off early in the 40-lapper after getting spun around on lap 36.
For another $15,000-to-win program on Thursday, Tyler laid down the ninth-fastest lap in his time trial group before placing second in his heat. Starting in 12th, Erb ran as high as seventh but faded late in the 40-lap prelim to finish 11th.
With preliminary points placing Erb on the second row of his heat race on Saturday, Tyler edged his way into the $25,000-to-win World Finals finale with the third-and-final transfer spot in his heat. Earning the 14th-starting position, Erb gained four positions in the 50-lap affair to cross the line in 10th.
