Tyler Erb Wires Northern Allstars Late Model Series Stop At Lawrenceburg Speedway

Story By: BEN SHELTON / BEST PERFORMANCE MOTORSPORTS – ST. MARYS, OH – Tyler Erb cruised to his third win of the season on Saturday night in the Northern Allstars Late Model Series weekend finale at Lawrenceburg Speedway aboard his Bulk Material Lift / Anthony’s Pizza No. 1 Best Performance Motorsports / First Class Septic / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.

The New Waverly, Texas, driver pocketed a $5,000 payday for his first-career triumph with the newly-revived series.

“The B-mains were really good and, you know, I’ve heard ‘It’s rough, it’s rough,’ and that’s about as good a racetrack you can get,” Erb said. “Like I told them, there’s only a select few people that can run that cushion because you can blow through it really easily. And, yeah, (racing was done on) the top, bottom. I guess they were sliding, it looks like from all the carnage. Yeah, it was a great racetrack.”

Tyler Erb kicked off a pair of Northern Allstars Late Model Series (NALMS) events over the weekend with a visit to Circle City Raceway (Indianapolis, Ind.) on Friday for the C.J. Rayburn Tribute.

Joining a field of 25 Super Late Models, Erb raced into Friday’s $10,000-to-win opener with a runner-up heat showing. Climbing three positions in the 40-lap affair, Tyler steered to a runner-up finish, chasing Ricky Thornton Jr. to the checkers.

On Saturday at Lawrenceburg (Ind.) Speedway, Tyler followed up the second-fastest qualifying effort overall with a heat race victory.

Leading flag-to-flag in the main event, Erb set sail on the drop of the green flag and controlled the 35-lapper to record his first NALMS victory and third win of the year.

He earned a $5,000 payday ahead of Devin Gilpin, Kody Evans, David Webb, and Seth Daniels.

Erb and the Best Performance Motorsports team will next return to action on Tuesday, May 28 with a trip to Macon (Ill.) Speedway for a $20,000-to-win Castrol FloRacing Night in America presented by Kubota event.
