In addition to HDD Racing driver Cameron Pearson competing in the 2017-18 season USA Invasion Late Model Tour, the team will be joined by American Late Model racer Tyler Erb, who will make his Australian debut aboard the USA # 10 machine.
Off the back of a recent trip to America, where Pearson spent seven weeks crewing for current Australia # 3 Paul Stubber, he was introduced to Erb, who is currently running fifth in the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, and decided to offer him the opportunity to run their second car during the USA Invasion Tour in January over in Western Australia, which will take place over four rounds.
“It’s great to be able to give Tyler the opportunity to come to Australia for the first time and race against Australia’s best drivers on unfamiliar tracks,” commented HDD Racing team owner Justin Pearson.
“Tyler is an up and coming driver who races Late Models for a living and consistently runs within the top 10, so this will also be a fantastic opportunity for us as a team to pick up some added knowledge from someone who has a lot of experience and can help us to develop as a team.”
Having joined the competitive racing circuit at the age of 14 in the Hobby Stock class, where he won nine feature races, Erb purchased an Express Limited Open Wheel Modified in 2011, before later moving into Super Late Models, where he spent the next four seasons contesting over a 100 race meetings.
Making his World of Outlaws Late Model Series debut in 2016, Erb came away with two feature-race wins and 27 top-10 finishes, and ended the season 12th in point standings.
HDD Racing is proudly supported by the following 2017-18 season sponsors: Healesville Directional Drilling, Progressive Traffic Solutions, Hayden Race Cars, TriTech Lubricants, CASE Construction, and Pirtek – Bayswater.
