Fresh off Kokomo win, Hoosier Autumn Classic up Next for Tyler Erb

Special from Best Performance Motorsports: St. Marys, OH (Monday, September 23, 2019) - Tyler Erb didn’t know what to expect heading into Friday night’s Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event at Kokomo Speedway. He had only seen Sprint Car videos of the place. As it turned out, he would quickly take to the ¼-mile oval. In fact, he piloted his Industrial Resourcing Group No. 1 XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model to the $12,000 victory.

“Wow, how about this place,” Erb said in regards to Kokomo Speedway. “It definitely lived up to the hype. I ran in second to both little Billy [Moyer Jr.] and Huddy [Hudson] O’Neal, and my car was so much better than those guys, but I couldn’t get clear to complete the pass. Then I took the lead twice and the caution came out both times, and I was kinda losing my patience there. Hudson had trouble late and we were able to capitalize and get the win.

“This win was so needed for our team, and I just want to say thanks to Best Performance Motorsports, my team, my sponsors, my fans and everyone that supports us. We have the team and we have the speed, so hopefully we’ve got several more wins in us before this year is over.”

Making his debut at Kokomo Speedway (Kokomo Indiana) on Friday night, Tyler Erb triumphed in thrilling fashion to pick up the $12,000 triumph.

Up next for the team is the inaugural Hoosier Autumn Classic at Plymouth Speedway (Plymouth, Indiana). The event opens with preliminary action on Friday, September 27, where a driver could win up to $5,000. On Saturday night the event culminates with a $12,000-to-win finale. The weekend is sanctioned by the American Ethanol Late Model Tour (AELMT).
