With a fourth-place finish in his heat race placing him on the fifth row for the $22,022-to-win A-Main, Erb advanced forward five spots in the 50-lapper to register a fifth-place finish. He trailed Bobby Pierce, Devin Moran, Brent Larson, and Doug Drown to checkers.
In a field of 40 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) entries on Thursday at Tyler County Speedway (Middlebourne, W. Va.) for the rescheduled Hillbilly Hundred, Tyler edged his way into the feature with a sixth-to-third run in his heat. With $30,000 on the line, Erb rebounded to finish 14th after suffering a flat tire on lap 53.
After saturated grounds cancelled Friday's scheduled event at Raceway 7 (Connaut, Ohio), an unfavorable forecast for Saturday's Pittsburgher 100 at Pittsburgh PA. Motor Speedway (Pittsburgh, Pa.) wiped out the remainder of the weekend.
Tyler remains in sixth in the latest LOLMDS point standings.
