“I said I wasn’t going to push it, but when I took the lead off of turn two, I was just running half throttle,” said Erb. “I was following those guys and they got out about a straightaway from me, but in about three laps they came right back to me. I was just running the middle there, searching around. It was just one mistake behind a lapped car.”

Erb was one of 37 Super Late Models on hand at Whynot Motorsports Park for the rescheduled 25th Annual Fall Classic. After timing in second fastest in his qualifying group behind Rick Rickman, Erb streaked to an eight-lap heat race victory which positioned him fourth on the starting grid for the $15,000-to-win A-Main on Saturday.

Overtaking Dalton Cook for the top spot on lap 12, Tyler held the lead until lap 59 when he got caught behind a lapped car. Hanging on to a podium finish, Tyler Erb posted a runner-up spot behind Ashton Winger, with Darrell Lanigan, Dennis Erb Jr. and Michael Page rounding out the top-five finishers.

The 13th Annual Can-Am World Finals kicked off with sixty-nine entries competing in Thursday night's qualifying program to determined the heat race line-ups for Friday and Saturday.

Tyler's qualifying effort earned him the ninth starting position in Friday night's heat race action. Erb went on to finish eighth, sending him to a B-Main. With only the top-two finishers in the B-Main transferring to the main event, an 11th-place finish would bring Tyler's night to an early end.

The team looked to improve their performance on Saturday night. After starting 10th in his heat race, Tyler charged to a fourth-place finish, just one-spot shy of a transfer position. Erb went on to win his B-Main, locking him into the nineteenth starting position on the feature grid. Tyler went on to register a 21st-place finish in the final rundown.

Tyler started his weekend by registering the fastest lap in qualifications on Saturday evening, and then backed up his qualifying performance with a heat race win to lock into the pole position for Sunday's 100-lap finale.

He paced the first 52 laps of the caution-plagued event at the 4/10-mile oval before Chris Madden ultimately overtook him for the lead in the 100 lapper. Tyler ran second for the remainder of the $15,000-to-win event, and that's where he crossed the finish line.

“I just hated all the cautions. I wasn’t very good on restarts,” Erb said after making his second-career National 100 start. “It would take me about four or five laps to get a good rhythm. Even when I was behind Madden and we were lapping cars, like I had a pretty good rhythm and he got about a straightaway or three quarters of a straightaway [ahead] and then it’s like we went the same speed for 10 laps and then we’d have a caution.

“I think the guy out front was definitely at an advantage, but I just didn’t restart very well when I was out front. I needed to try to change it up or do something, but you just really don’t know. You can only picture what’s behind you so much. But it’s part of it, it’s experience here.”

Devin Moran, Scott Bloomquist and Dennis Erb Jr. completed the Top-5 finishers.
