Tyler Erb Gets First
Lucas Oil Win of the Season at Muskingum County
3, 2020) Tyler Erb earned his first Lucas Oil Late Model
Dirt Series win of 2020 on Friday Night at the Muskingum County
Speedway. The reigning series rookie-of-the-year took the lead from
Jonathan Davenport on lap 44 and withstood a caution flag with two
laps to go for the victory. He becomes the 12th different winner
this year on the series tour. Devin Moran finished in second followed
by Jonathan Davenport, Tyler Carpenter, and Hudson O'Neal.
Davenport started on the pole was hindered from running away with
the first portion of the race as four cautions came out within the
first nine laps of race. The race finally saw a long green flag
stretch, and Davenport encountered heavy traffic quickly. Erb and
several other drivers closed the gap on him, bringing chase as they
maneuvered through the field of lap cars. Davenport held the point
for the first 43 laps of the race until Erb passed him in traffic
a lap later. Moran was able to also slip past Davenport on the same
lap to gain the runner-up position. |
