Sitting in 16th as the field went green with 14 laps in the books, Erb gained five spots in the remaining 84 circuits to finish 11th.
For a pair of preliminary features on Thursday as the 52nd annual World 100 came to life, Tyler’s third-place finish in his heat race positioned him on the fifth row for his 25-lap prelim. With $12,000 on the line, Erb dropped one spot to cross the line in 11th.
On Friday, Erb followed up a sixth-place finish in his heat race with a consolation victory. Starting his $12,000-to-win preliminary feature in 21st, Tyler advanced forward 10 spots in the 25-lapper to register an 11th-place finish.
Earning the second-starting position for Saturday’s heat race via preliminary points from Thursday and Friday, Tyler was collected in a tangle with another competitor, relegating him into a B-Main for another shot at the $55,000-to-win World 100. Needing to place fourth or better, Erb came two spots shy with a sixth-place outing.Back to News
