Latest Driver News

Dennis Erb Jr. has always been a regular on the DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour, winning the points championship three times in a row from 2007-2009. Backed by longtime crew chief Heather Lyne, an electrical engineer, the two are arguably the most interesting yet recognizable driver-crew chief combo in Late Model racing history.

Since 2013, Erb has been racing at the national level, getting repeated experience racing on tracks outside of his native Illinois.

Known as one of the drivers in the pits that goes about his business, it’s his dedication to the sport and commitment to excellence that has brought numerous episodes of success throughout his career; most notably a $100,000 win in the 2016 Dirt Late Model Dream at Eldora Speedway.

Outside of the national stage, Erb has enjoyed success at the local/regional level as well, capturing the 2007 and 2008 DIRTcar Late Model national points championships to compliment his Summer Nationals titles.

Despite his success with DIRTcar and intermittent appearances with the World of Outlaws, Erb had never previously competed as a part of the full-time Outlaw roster until the 2019 season, when he locked up a solid sixth-place finish in the final points standings.
