_______________________________________Dennis Erb, Jr. Competes in Indiana Icebreaker; LaSalle Doubleheader Ahead
CARPENTERSVILLE, IL (March 26) - The Dennis Erb Racing team returned to Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series competition on Saturday evening, March 22 at the legendary Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown, Indiana. The 17th edition of the 'Indiana Icebreaker' was held at the famed 1/4-mile fairgrounds oval and 45 competitors piled into the pit area to vie for the $10,000 top prize. Dennis Erb, Jr. started off his night by timing in nineteenth fastest in Group B during qualifying and he later finished tenth in his stacked heat race.
After running sixth in his B-Main, Dennis was forced to take use of a LOLMDS provisional to gain access into the 50-lap feature event. In front of a jammed packed grandstand, Dennis started the 'Indiana Icebreaker' from the outside of the twelfth row. The Carpentersville, Illinois standout was then able to climb three positions during the caution-free affair and eventually netted a twenty-first place effort in the single-day showdown. Dennis now sits eleventh in the current version of the LOLMDS point standings following Brownstown. Full results can be obtained by clicking on www.lucasdirt.com
Weather pending, the #28 team will compete for the first time in the Land of Lincoln in 2014 this upcoming weekend (March 28-29). The LaSalle Speedway in LaSalle, Illinois will play host to a pair of special events, which will make up the 3rd Annual 'Thaw Brawl.' A $2,000 top prize has been established for Friday's 35-lap feature event, while Saturday's 75-lapper boasts a hefty $15,000 winner's check. Each program will be sanctioned by both the American Late Model Series (ALMS) and UMP DIRTcar Series.
