In August 2007, Ann had a run-in with the wall at Cecil County Dragway. Fellow racer Dave Coleman-who owns Purnell's Body Shop in Elkton, MD-towed the AMX back to his shop and fixed it in just two weeks. He never asked for a cent. The Erbs would like to say thanks to Dave, Erica, and everyone at the shop. "There were times we both had tears in our eyes from the generosity of other racers. That whole event could have turned us the other way, but because of them, we still have a positive attitude and are still racing," says Steve.
