Erb Earns Win at Swainsboro in Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series Action
by James Essex
SWAINSBORO, GA (June 20) - Dennis Erb Jr. led the final 17 laps, and went on to win the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event on Thursday night at Swainsboro Raceway. Erb's fourth win of the season was worth $10,000. Earl Pearson Jr. led the first 32 laps until Erb passed him on the high-side. Pearson finished second followed by Jared Landers, Don O'Neal, and Steve Francis.
"It's our first time here; the car was good whether we ran low or high. I was setting him (Pearson) up for four or five laps and finally went into turn three and the car stuck, enabling me to finally get by Earl. It's been a great year for us so far, this if our fourth Lucas Oil win! We aren't worried about the points right now, we just want to win races," said Erb, who was joined by Crew Chief, Heather Lyne, in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.
"It was a really good race for the lead there early on between us, Earl, and Jared. The track was really good after they worked on it during the break. I have to thank my sponsors: J&L Scrap Metal Metals, JR McBride Leasing, Bloomquist Race Cars, and Kuntz and Company Motors."
Pearson, who was looking for his second series win of the year, said afterwards, "We really wanted to win this race; we had a lot of friends and family here tonight. The car was strong all night long; we will take this finish in the Lucas Oil Products, MAVT TV Longhorn."
Landers was looking for a clean sweep of the evening's racing activities after setting fast time and winning his heat. Landers was in hunt for most of the race. "We are knocking on the door for a win, last week we ran strong in Mississippi, so we are going to move onto Cherokee tomorrow night. We've won there before, so we should feel real comfortable racing there."
Completing the top ten were Eddie Carrier Jr., Casey Roberts, Jimmy Owens, Jeff Smith, and John Blankenship.
In preliminary action, Jared Landers set the overall time (Group B) amongst the 19 entrants, with a lap of 14.069 seconds. Earl Pearson Jr. set the fastest time in Group A with a time of 14.072 seconds. Jared Landers, Earl Pearson Jr., and Steve Francis won their respective heat races.
