Lance Dewease Collects $53,000 In Seventh Tuscarora 50 Victory At Port Royal Speedway

Tuscarora 50 - Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions - Port Royal Speedway - 69K Lance Dewease

PORT ROYAL, PA – For the seventh time in his career, National Sprint Car Hall of Famer Lance Dewease is a Tuscarora 50 champion at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania, collecting a $53,000 payday in the process, as well as over $1,000 in lap money, while simultaneously stretching his Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 win count to 41, 12 of which at the Port Royal “Speed Palace.”

“My guys work really hard. This car was easy to drive tonight and that’s the key,” an elated Lance Dewease said in Port Royal Speedway victory lane, driver of the Kreitz Racing, Schannauer Plumbing and Heating, Hess Ornamental Iron, No. 69K sprint car. “I’m just happy for all of the guys and all of our sponsors. It’s a whole-team effort. Everyone works so hard.”

The Fayetteville, Pennsylvania-native, who started from the pole position as the result of a top-six redraw, was in command of the feature field for the first 18 circuits, as well as the final 13, losing the top spot to St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu on lap 19 before reclaiming the lead on lap 38. Abreu, who started alongside Dewease on the front row, earned the advantage over the Kreitz Racing No. 69K during a battle in traffic, first missing a slide job attempt on lap 14 before officially taking the lead on lap 19.

Unfortunately for Abreu, a problem with the car’s universal joint forced the familiar No. 24 to go pit-side allowing Dewease to inherit command shortly after the competition yellow at half way.

“I think I was being a little too conservative with the lapped cars which allowed Rico (Abreu) to get by me,” Lance Dewease said. “I thought we would get back by him among the lap cars because I felt like I was hitting some pretty good marks. We probably weren’t as good as we were last night, but the track was pretty tricky. You can have the fastest car at the track and still not win if you don’t catch some breaks. We caught the breaks tonight.




“When I started racing, I just wanted to race. Kinda like Kyle (Larson), I just wanted to race. It didn’t matter what it was. To be doing this for four decades means two things: I’m old and I’ve been fortunate enough to be pretty successful for a long time. I’ve had the opportunity to drive for a lot of great people.”

Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri would battle ahead four spots to finish second at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” followed by Dylan Cisney, a hard-charging Kyle Larson from 22nd, and Thursday night winner, Cory Eliason.
