Dennis Erb Racing Back On Outlaws Tour Following Pair Of Summer Nationals Top 5’s

Story By: RYAN DELPH / DENNIS ERB RACING – CARPENTERSVILLE, IL – The Dennis Erb Racing team was busy on the DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour with five scheduled events in the Land of Lincoln from June 12-16.

With shows at Kankakee County Speedway and Sycamore Speedway succumbing to inclement weather, the team officially got three races in the books last week. Dennis Erb, Jr. enjoyed his best run in the “Hell Tour” lid lifter on Wednesday night at Peoria Speedway in Peoria, Illinois. He earned Fast Time honors during the qualifying session, won his heat race, and later finished an impressive runner-up behind only $5,000 feature victor Tyler Erb!

In a pair of $10,000 to win tilts over the weekend, Dennis was in action at both Tri-City Speedway in Granite City, Illinois and Fairbury Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois. On Friday evening at Granite City, Dennis placed third in his heat race prior to moving up three spots during the 40-lap feature en route to a solid sixth place performance. At FALS on Saturday, Dennis clicked off the quickest lap overall during time trials, won his heat race, and later led laps 26-27 of the A-Main before slipping to fifth at the checkers behind only race winner Tyler Erb, Shannon Babb, Jason Feger, and Ryan Unzicker.
