MITCH SMITH MEMORIAL TO LANCE DEWEASE
Lance Dewease drove around Keith Kauffman on the 22nd lap and went on to
win the Mitch Smith Memorial for sprint cars Friday night at Williams Grove
Speedway and became the fifth different winner in five Pennsylvania
Speedweek races.
Dewease started alongside Kauffman on the front row of the 30-lap test, but
the 51-year old veteran beat him into the first corner and led a wild romp
through lapped traffic in a race slowed by caution only once when Greg
Hodnett spun on the second lap.
After Dewease took the lead exiting the fourth corner eight laps from the
finish Kauffman stayed within striking distance, but had to settle for
second place and a $4000 payday.
Dewease took home the lucrative $10,000 winner's check for his 46th career
Williams Grove Speedway win.
Dewease became the first driver to win four main events at the Grove this
year.
