Saturday night, Dewease packed the car on the stage after scoring the win in the Fallen Heroes 410 Sprint car main at Port Royal Speedway.

The weekend started with the Walt Dyer Tribute Race Friday at Williams Grove Speedway where the throwback paint scheme was first unveiled to Dyer, which obviously was an emotional sight. Dyer was honored before the races with many of his former drivers on hand but on the track. Dewease was unable to get the Brickmobile to victory lane as it was Steve Buckwalter who took the win and the cool Brick checkered flag for the win. He defeated Greg Hodnett, TJ Stutts, Dewease and Anthony Macri.

Dewease opened the big Bob Weikert Memorial weekend at Port Royal with the win Saturday night as he outran David Gravel, Greg Hodnett, Lucas Wolfe and Brock Zearfoss for the win. Both Mike and Logan Wagner dropped out of the feature credited with 23rd and 24th, respectively.

Lucas Wolfe took the big $10,000 payday in Sunday night’s Weikert Memorial as he inherited the lead with eight laps to go and held off Lance Dewease for his second straight Weikert Memorial win. Gravel, Zearfoss and Ryan Smith were the top-five finishers. Mike Wagner placed 20th.

Logan Wagner took the lead on the 14th lap and was looking for his first win in the Zemco sprinter but it wasn’t meant to be as he blew a left rear tire leading with eight laps to go. He was paid for the 18th spot.

Rick Eckert dominated the Northeast Ultimate Late Model Series, scoring wins both Saturday and Sunday to take home $8,000. Saturday night, Eckert beat Gary Stuhler, Dylan Yoder, Jeff Rine and Donny Schatz. Jason Covert finished sixth and Marvin Winters was 24th.

Eckert’s Sunday night victory came over Jeff Rine, Ross Robinson, Kyle Lee and Donny Schatz.
