Tyler Erb Sweeps World of Outlaws Weekend at Atomic
Gumbo Nationals at Greenville Up Next

New Waverly, Texas (10/02/18) – Entering the weekend’s World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Late Model Series doubleheader at Ohio’s Atomic Speedway Tyler Erb had never won an event with the tour. By the time the weekend was over the driver of the New Point Lighting and Design Inc. #91 Roberts Bee Company/ XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model was a two-time series victor.

“Our car’s been good all year,” Erb said. “I used to make a lot of bonehead moves and I still do. I about gave it away. (Marlar) could have drove by me right there coming out of four (on Saturday night). I just can’t thank everyone that helps me enough. It takes a lot of money to go up and down the road. It’s been a different year for me. … I haven’t been home in four and a half months, and I’m about to relocate. It’s been hectic, but this is just an unbelievable feeling, and I want to thank everyone who supports me and my program.”

On Friday night Tyler Erb followed the World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Late Model Series to Atomic Speedway (Alma, Ohio) for the opening round of the two-day Outlaw Invasion. In a field of 35 cars, Tyler came one spot short of a transfer position in his heat with a fifth-place finish. Starting on the pole of his B-Main, Erb scored a 10-lap consolation victory positioning him 15th on the starting grid for the opening night feature.

Wheeling his way into a podium spot by lap-30, Tyler began tracking down race-leader Devin Moran in the final 10 circuits. Slipping past Moran on lap-35, Erb held the top spot for the ensuing six laps to capture his first-career WoO victory and seventh triumph of the season. Topping Moran, Brandon Sheppard, Mike Marlar, and Chris Ferguson at the line, Tyler Erb claimed an $8,000 paycheck for his inaugural series triumph.

On Saturday evening Tyler was back for more. He notched a third-place finish in his heat race, which locked him into the 13th-starting position for the finale. Overtaking Mike Marlar for the lead in the final corner on the last lap, Tyler Erb captured his second-straight WoO win in dramatic fashion to pick up the $10,000 payday. Marlar, Brandon Sheppard, Devin Moran, and Chase Junghans completed the Top-5 finishers.

Tyler sits eighth in the latest WoO Craftsman Late Model Series standings. For more results from these events, please visit .

This weekend – October 5-6 – Tyler will get a break from WoO competition as he heads to Mississippi for the 12th annual Gumbo Nationals at Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi). A new format is in place for the event this season with a $4,000-to-win program on Friday night and an $8,000-to-win slate on Saturday night. Tyler picked up a $10,000 win in the Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS) sanctioned event in 2016.

His formidable win tally for the 2018 season now resides at 24.

“It was disappointing to see the big show at Red River Co-Op Speedway canceled by weather because it’s always great to get to race close to home with our family and friends. However, we made the most of the hand dealt to us and headed to Wisconsin, where we were able to score another big win,” Weiss commented. “It was another weekend where our car was flawless, and we were able to visit Victory Lane again. I’m excited about heading to Viking Speedway this coming weekend. We’ve always had speed there, so I’m focused on doing everything that I can to sweep both events.”

With Mother Nature wiping out his original plans, Ricky Weiss was 30 Super Late Models signed in at ABC Raceway (Ashland, Wisconsin) on Friday night for the preliminary events for the 43rd annual Red Clay Classic. After laying down the fastest time overall in qualifying, Weiss cruised to a heat race victory, which locked him into the pole position for Saturday night’s finale.

Leading flag-to-flag, Ricky Weiss cruised to his 23rd win of the season, which came over Travis Budisalovich, Jimmy Mars, A.J. Diemel, and Kyle Peterlin. He was awarded a $5,000 payday for his dominant performance in the 50-lap affair.

Jake Knowles Crowned King of the Crates at NAS
Durrence Layne Series at Smoky Mountain Speedway Up Next

Rome, Georgia (10/02/18) – Jake Knowles overcame a slick track and a talented field of competitors to bag the $5,000 Durrence Layne Dirt Late Model Series win on Sunday afternoon at North Alabama Speedway.

Jake’s seventh victory of the season came behind the wheel of his Knowles Race Parts & Bodies #66 Josh Roberts Trucking/ Longhorn Late Model.

“Ever since Cory (Hedgecock) and I ran first and second the last time we raced, I’ve been thinking about this race, and it seemed like we raced all over the place the first part of the race,” Knowles said. “I want to thank Cory for racing me clean, and I also want to thank all of these fans for coming out to watch us on a hot day. It was slick coming off turn two and we both ended up going off there, and the last time he did it, I was able to sneak by and hold on for the win.”

With Mother Nature shifting the event back a day, Jake Knowles was one of 32 Durrence Layne Chevrolet Series entries registered at North Alabama Speedway (Tuscumbia, Alabama) on Saturday night for the preliminary festivities for the second annual King of the Crates 60.

After laying down the second fastest time in his qualifying group behind Justin McRee, Knowles captured a 10-lap heat race victory, which positioned him third on the starting gird for the A-Main on Sunday.

Knowles bided his time during the early stages of the big finale as he raced in a podium spot. Using a late-race restart to his advantage, Jake overtook Cory Hedgecock for the lead on lap-42 and paced the field for the remaining 18 circuits to capture his seventh win of the season and a $5,000 payday.

Hedgecock, Eric Hickerson, Ashton Winger, and Seth McCormack completed the Top-5 finishers in the 60-lap affair.

Jake is currently third in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Series point standings. For full results from this event, please visit .

Knowles will be looking to make up even more in the Durrence Layne Series standings this Saturday night, when the tour thunders into Smoky Mountain Speedway (Maryville, Tennessee) for a $5,000-to-win event.

Dale McDowell Masters Dixie Shootout for the Fourth Time
Invades Smoky Mountain Speedway this Saturday Night

Mooresburg, Tennessee (10/02/18) –
For the second-straight week Dale McDowell streaked to a $12,000 victory in his Shane McDowell Racing #17m New Era Industrial/ Will Kinzer Foundation/ Sweet-Bloomquist Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.

His latest major win came on Saturday night at Dixie Speedway. He led all 50 circuits in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) sanctioned, Dixie Shootout to claim the event triumph for the fourth time in his career.

McDowell attributed a big part of his win to a good pill draw as well as a late-race caution that erased lapped traffic.

“We drew early and I think that helped us,” McDowell commented. “And starting up front helped us. The late-race caution helped us because it let me get clean air. I never did think I’d see the day when air was (so) important in (Dirt Late Model racing). You hear about it (in NASCAR racing) on Sundays, but clean air (is important). I got loose in dirty air behind ‘em and I’m sure those guys did a little bit too. When you’re sitting out front, you’re just a sitting duck. Those guys are gonna go where you aren’t, so it just worked out. Thank the good Lord for a good safe race tonight. It was just meant for us to be here.””

On Friday night Dale McDowell was one of 20 Super Late Models registered at Tri-County Racetrack (Brasstown, North Carolina) for the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals Bonus Series sanctioned, FK Rod Ends Tarheel 50.

After laying down the the fastest time overall in qualifying in the Brandon Kinzer Motorsports entry, McDowell posted a runner-up finish in the Dash behind Casey Roberts, which earned him the outside-front-row starting position for the $10,000-to-win A-Main. After jumping out to an early lead, Dale suffered a flat-tire while leading on lap-23 that dropped him back to a 14th-place outing.

The following night bought Dale to Dixie Speedway (Woodstock, Georgia), where he was competing in a field of 44 Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS) entries for the annual Dixie Shootout. After laying down the fastest time overall in qualifying, McDowell cruised to a heat race victory, positioning him on the pole for the A-Main.

Leading wire-to-wire, Dale McDowell soared to his eighth win of the season topping Jonathan Davenport, Josh Richards, Brandon Overton, and Tim McCreadie at the line. He was awarded a $12,000 payday for his dominant performance in the 50-lap affair.

On Sunday evening McDowell stopped at Rome Speedway (Rome, Georgia) for the LOLMDS-sanctioned Rome Showdown. Grabbing the fourth and final transfer spot in his heat race, Dale earned the 16th-starting position for the $10,000-to-win finale.
Breaking into the Top-5, McDowell passed 11 cars in the 50-lapper to place 5th behind Chris Madden, Tim McCreadie, Jonathan Davenport, and Tyler Millwood.

Full results from these events are available at and .

This Saturday night the team will resume the 2018 season with a trip to Smoky Mountain Speedway (Maryville, Tennessee) for the King of the Mountain, which will be highlighted by a $7,500-to-win, Southern All Star (SAS) Dirt Racing Series event.
