Erickson wins 100-lapper in comeback fashion at the LoanMart Madera Speedway
By Ronald Montez / The Madera Tribune

In the 100-lap race of the LoanMart Late Model Series, winning driver Matt Erickson delivered a simple yet powerful message to the fans and fellow competitors: never give up hope, no matter what the situation is.

Despite trailing for all but three laps on Saturday night (July 25), Erickson kept at it and stayed in a close enough distance to position himself for a comeback win in Race No. 5 of the $10,000.00 to win LoanMart Open Late Model Series 100-lap (split 50's) main event.

"At the halfway break, I thought I wasn't even going to come close to winning," said Erickson, who was in third place after 46 laps. "I was going to settle for a top-five finish. We worked on the car and made a couple of adjustments, it actually woke the car up."

It was the first race of the season for the defending Open Late Model champ, who had to sit out the first four events for disciplinary actions stemming from last year's series finale.

Back racing on the "Fastest 1/3 Mile in the West", Erickson gave the loyal Speedway fans a memorable finish as he passed fellow competitor and runner-up Bryan Herzog in the closing moments of the 100-lap saga.

The veteran driver Herzog was aiming for his third straight win after posting victories on June 20 and May 30.

"I think we have the same amount of laps on this track," said Erickson. "I've lost count on how many I've ran but he's been racing here probably his whole life and I've been here since 2007. We know how this track works. He's what they call a bottom feeder because he likes to stay on the bottom (part of the racetrack). I'll move around and go to the high-side or I'll go wherever and do Click here for more...

Those words not only described the Grade A fireworks show that was displayed for the fans at the LoanMart Madera Speedway - the same could be said for the drivers on the evening.
