1June 28th, 2013 - Wells Motorsports entered the opening round of the 7th Annual Firecracker 100 at Lernerville Speedway (Sarver, Pennsylvania) on Thursday evening under threatening skies. The $6,000-to-win, World of Outlaws (WoO) program attracted 57 entries to the clay oval, and Eric started his by qualifying sixth fastest in his group before racing to the win in the sixth heat race. In the redraw for the feature he was the recipient of the pole position with Steve Shaver joining him on the front row for the 30 lap affair. Wells battled in the top three throughout the event before crossing the finish line in third behind race winner, Josh Richards, and Shaver. Wells earned Rookie of the Race honors for his performance.

Friday night's program would get postponed until Saturday afternoon due to Mother Nature as 59 entries competed in the $6,000-to-win race. Struggles in time trials left Eric starting deep in his heat race grid, and while he missed the transfer by one spot from his heat race, a second place finish in his b-main locked him into the 23rd starting spot for the 30 lap preliminary feature. Passing would be difficult under daytime conditions, but Wells would manage to register a 16th place finish at the checkered flag.

On Saturday evening the $30,000-to-win finale for the 7th Annual Firecracker 100 was held, and while Mother Nature again delayed the start of the program, finally it would be contested, and it would prove to be a terrible night for Eric. Via his performances on the preliminary nights he started on the pole of his heat race, but would fade backwards to a sixth place finish. As a result he was relegated to a b-main, and would again fail to reach a transfer spot. He utilized a series' provisional to start the feature in the 25th position. Late in the event he was running in the top ten, when disaster struck as he flipped out of turn three. Luckily he would only receive minor bumps and bruises as his night came to an end in the 12th position.
