Erb Runs Down Pierce For $23,023

BANNER, Ill. — The Castrol FloRacing Night in America visit to Spoon River Speedway on Wednesday night didn’t disappoint. While Pierce led 44 of the first 45 laps, it was Erb Jr. that led the final five laps to reap his first career national touring victory at Spoon River. Erb narrowly led 44 by .091 seconds before Pierce countered around the top to barely lead lap 45. “I knew he was going to go back up there,” Erb said of Pierce. Erb finished Pierce off on lap 46, when the slower car of Ross Robinson stymied Pierce’s momentum. As Pierce let off the gas to avoid a collision, Erb rolled the bottom, and then to victory. But the lapped cars, you just have to work with them and try to pass them,” Pierce said. We couldn’t steer very good to the bottom there,” Davenport said.
