  • Port Royal Speedway PA)Last week Lance Dewease was standing on the front stretch during victory lane celebrations collecting a check for being the night’s hard charger. The Fayetteville, Pa. native advanced from 16th to fourth, passing 12 cars for a nice additional $925 pay day. This week Dewease passed 14 cars in Weikert’s Livestock 410 Sprint Car action….lapped cars that is. Dewease capitalized on a pole position starting spot and lapped all the way up to 10th place in the field to best Logan Wagner for the victory by a whopping 7.584 second margin during 25 laps of caution free action. And he did it in front a nice crowd of fans who braved the brisk temperatures on a daylight surface despite national concerns over Cornonavirus. Central PA3/14
