PORT ROYAL, Pa. (May 28, 2023) – For the second time in three tries, Lance Dewease is a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 feature winner, doing so in fantastic fashion with a $29,000 payday in the annual Bob Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania. Dewease, who was victorious in Williams Grove’s Doug Esh Tribute just two nights prior, led all 29 circuits in the Weikert main event, increasing his All Star win tally to 46-career, 15 at the Port Royal “Speed Palace.” In addition, the National Sprint Car Hall of Famer bumped his Port Royal career total to 122, three of which occurring in Bob Weikert Memorial winning fashion.

Only one caution interrupted action on Sunday night, that taking place on lap 18. The momentum shift erased a near-five second lead for Lance Dewease, forced to eventually fend off the “Legend” Mike Wagner and Bob Weikert Memorial night one winner, Anthony Macri. Macri, who started ninth, would power to second immediately following the restart, but a clear path and clean air allowed Dewease to maintain control.

“Well, I knew where Anthony [Macri] wanted to run, and I knew where Mike [Wagner] wanted to run. That was probably the most nervous I’ve ever been at the start of a race…just didn’t know if I had enough for these guys,” Dewease, driver of the Conduit/Glenville Station No. 69K sprint car, said. “I wanted to make sure I didn’t follow any lapped cars too closely. Luckily enough, we got here.

“To have Davey Brown with us here tonight is really special,” Dewease added. “For his age, he works really hard on this race car…everyone does. These guys really revitalized my career and we’re going to ride this wave for as long as we can.”

Although using every inch of Port Royal’s outer edge, the cushion was not enough for Anthony Macri, forced to finish second at the Juniata County Fairgrounds, followed by Wagner, Danny Dietrich, and Devon Borden.

“That late caution was helpful, but it didn’t help enough. I knew with Lance being in clean air, he was going to take off,” Macri said. “I kept trying to run the top as hard as I could. I just wasn’t close enough to do anything at the end. We’ll take a second and be proud.”

The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their 2023 campaign with a return visit to the Badger State, set to compete in a pair of high profile events on Friday and Saturday, June 2-3. Series action will begin with the Gib Wiser Classic on Friday night at Dodge County Fairgrounds in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, followed by the $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race at Plymouth Dirt Track in Plymouth, Wisconsin, on Saturday.
