Terbo Kicks Off ULTIMATE Indiana Swing with Victory

Tyler Erb made the long haul from Texas up to Indianapolis one that was worthwhile, beating out the ULTIMATE Heart of America Super Late Model Series regulars and favorites from the Hoosier State to take night one of the Indiana Swing at the new Circle City Raceway.  For “Terbo”, it was his first-career win under the ULTIMATE banner.


The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series regular rode a strong qualifying run throughout the rest of the night, sweeping the event in the process.  While it was his first appearance at the quarter-mile oval, his second will come quickly with another race Sunday bookending the weekend in Indiana.


“It’s a super nice facility and we had a good night here, it’s our first night here.  I’m looking forward to coming back Sunday,” Erb said on the Speed51.TV broadcast.  I’m sure it will be totally different, I would guess it will be a lot wetter.  I’ve watch quite a bit of races here and the top’s really good.


“We were fortunate to get a good qualifying lap and win our heat, and that set us up good for the feature.  It’s a good night and we’ve got two more this weekend back here and it, so I’m looking forward to it.”


Erb started on the pole by virtue of his win in the first heat race and never looked back, leading all 50 laps while staving off early charges from Devin Gilpin.  The bottom was the place to be during the main event, with the field quickly finding their way to the low side.


“I wanted to go up there and try it but it was just too crummy up there, too many dry crumbs.  I was fortunate to start on the pole and I thought if somebody passes me up there, then they’ve got to be really good.


I just tried to make 50 good laps and not miss the bottom.  It’s really tricky because you think you make a little bit of speed and then you’re almost stopped in the middle of the corner.  It’s a cool racetrack and a beautiful facility, hopefully we can do it again on Sunday.
