Lance Dewease Leads All 30 At The Grove For Dirt Classic Qualifier Win

Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals - World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Cars Series - Williams Grove Speedway - 69K Lance Dewease

MECHANICSBURG, PA – For the second time in three tries, Fayetteville, Pennsylvania’s Lance Dewease is a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, adding his additional check to the victory column during Williams Grove Speedway’s Dirt Classic Qualifier on Friday, September 16. The victory, resulting in a $7,000 payday for the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer, was acquired from the front row, leading all 30 circuits at the world-famous paperclip to ultimately clinch a starting spot in Lincoln Speedway’s $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic IX.

Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks chased Dewease to the final checkers, followed by TJ Stutts, Buddy Kofoid, and Danny Dietrich.

“I knew if we got a good start, it was going to be tough to pass us…the track was so fast tonight,” Lance Dewease expressed in Williams Grove Speedway victory lane. “The corners actually widened out more than what I thought they were going to. I kept glancing up at the scoreboard and wondered to myself if Brent [Marks] was going to get going there late. We took advantage of our draw and got ourselves here.”

Quick from the start, Dewease’s march at the front of the field was relatively unchallenged. It was not until a late run-in with traffic that gave Dewease a fit. Stuck behind a lapped car with ten remaining, the momentum shift allowed Stutts and Marks to close, but as soon as Dewease was able to clear the slower competitor, the now 44-time All Star winner ran away.

After laps of trying, Marks would eventually get by Stutts with two laps remaining.




As noted, the All Stars will cap their final weekend in Posse Country with the $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic IX at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, September 17. One of the highest paying programs on the 2022 All Star campaign trail, the special event will utilize a twin heat race format with passing points setting the bench for the A-Main lineup.
