Tyler Erb grabs Fall Classic prelim at Whynot, second in Saturday's finale
Tyler Erb visited Victory Lane twice during Whynot Motorsports Park’s annual Coors Light Fall Classic weekend.
He scored a $2,500 prelim win on Friday night in his Bulk Material Lift / M&W Transport No. 1 Best Performance Motorsports / First Class Septic / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model, and then added a $2,500 Crate Late Model win in the division’s finale on Saturday night aboard his family-owned First Class Septic No. 91 TerboThreads.com / Litton Motorsports Performance Signs & Graphics Rocket XR1 entry.
“Solid weekend at Rodney’s (Wing) house for us. Won the (Super Late Model) prelim night, and then raced my buddy Spencer Hughes hard for the (finale) win on Saturday night but ended up second. Got the job done in the Crate Late Model on Saturday night. All in all not too bad,” Erb shared. “We’re heading to East Alabama (Motor Speedway) this weekend to go after that $30k.”
On Friday afternoon, Tyler Erb entered the Best Performance Motorsports No. 1 Late Model into battle at Whynot Motorsports Park (Meridian, Miss.) for the 28th annual Coors Light Fall Classic.
With the 35-car field divided into two groups for a pair of preliminary features, Erb secured his spot into his prelim with a heat race win.
Sliding ahead of Wil Herrington on the third circuit, Tyler led the remainder of the 20-lapper to capture his ninth win of the season and a $2,500 prize. He finished ahead of Josh Putnam, Neil Baggett, Morgan Bagley, and Dalton Cook.
Earning the second-starting position for Saturday night’s $12,000-to-win Coors Light Fall Classic finale, Tyler grabbed the lead from Brian Rickman on lap two and held the top spot until lap 18, when Spencer Hughes nosed underneath on the bottom.
Erb went on to place second in the 60-lap affair, trailing Hughes to the checkers with David Breazeale rounding out the podium.

This Saturday and Sunday, Tyler Erb will roll into East Alabama Motor Speedway (Phenix City, Ala.) to go after his first-career National 100 title and the $30,000 winner’s check that goes with it.
