Dennis Erb, Jr. Clinches WOOLMS National Championship with Trio of Top Fives!

(CARPENTERSVILLE, ILLINOIS) Dennis Erb, Jr., of Carpentersville, Illinois, officially clinched the 2022 World of Outlaws Case Construction Late Model Series National Championship over the October 21-23 weekend with three straight top five performances! Things kicked off on Friday night at Humboldt Speedway in Humboldt, Kansas and Dennis started the evening by laying down the quickest lap in Group B during the qualifying session. After securing a heat race triumph, Dennis moved up one spot during the course of the 40-lap feature to finish an impressive runner-up behind only $10,000 victor Chase Junghans.

On Saturday, another $10,000 top prize was up for grabs with the national touring series at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kansas. Dennis stopped the clock third fastest in Group A during time trials before running second in his heat race and third in the 40-lap headliner behind only race winner Brandon Sheppard and runner-up Billy Moyer. The weekend finale then took place on Sunday with yet another $10,000 to win shootout at U.S. 36 Raceway in Osborn, Missouri. Dennis clicked off the third quickest lap overall during qualifying prior to finishing second in his heat race and fourth in the 40-lapper behind only winner Mike Marlar, Chase Junghans, and Tyler Bruening.

“It feels really, really good to secure our first World of Outlaws Case Construction Late Model Series National Championship,” exclaimed Erb, Jr. earlier today. “It has been a great season - we have been really consistent and our car has had speed in it since the opener at Volusia back in January. We are coming off a strong weekend in Kansas and Missouri, but there were a few times I thought about pushing the issue and racing harder if not for the points situation. It feels great to have the pressure off heading into Charlotte next weekend and we can just do our best and compete for the win there. I have to thank Heather (Lyne), J.R. McBride Leasing, McBride Mack, Ideal Ready Mix, VoMac Truck Sales, Tool’s Auto Sales & Details, Performance Rod & Custom, Keyser Manufacturing, Rocket Chassis, and everyone that supports our program including the fans!”

Before heading to Charlotte to compete in the ‘World Finals’ and collect the $125,000 Champions check at the World of Outlaws awards banquet, the Dennis Erb Racing team will make a stop at East Alabama Motor Speedway on October 28-29. The 48th edition of the ‘National 100’ will take place at the historic Phenix City, Alabama oval this weekend and a whopping $30,000 winner’s check will be on the line. Qualifying and heat races for the Super Late Models will be held on Friday night, while the consolation races and the 100-lap main event are slated for Saturday evening.
