Dennis Erb Jr. Embarks On WoO Late Model Tripleheader After Seventh Place Florence Effort

Story By: RYAN DELPH / DENNIS ERB RACING – CARPENTERSVILLE, IL – The Dennis Erb Racing team made a rare trip to Florence Speedway on Wednesday night, May 31, as the Castrol FloRacing Night in America Series rolled into the 1/2-mile Union, Kentucky speedplant to preside over a $23,023 to win shootout.

Dennis Erb, Jr. went out late in qualifying and still knocked down the second quickest time in Group B prior to running a strong second in his heat race behind only Ricky Thornton, Jr.

After starting the 50-lap headliner from the outside of the fourth row, Dennis vaulted forward early in the distance and ran amongst the top five through much of the first half of the contest. As the race progressed, the Carpentersville, Illinois native slipped back a few spots and ultimately wound up seventh in the final finishing order. Dennis now also sits seventh in the latest version of the Castrol FloRacing Night in America Series point standings exiting the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
