Logan Wagner drives by Lance Dewease late to earn Tuscarora 50 title and $54,000 payday

PORT ROYAL, Pa. (September 11, 2021) – Harrisonville, Pennsylvania’s Logan Wagner has accomplished just about everything there is to accomplish at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” including four consecutive track championships and a FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory during the 2021 Keith Kauffman Classic. Well, Wagner can officially add another line to his all-time Port Royal Speedway resume, collecting the 2021 Tuscarora 50 championship for a $54,000 payday, as well as a third-ever All Star victory.

Impressive, nonetheless, Wagner, aboard the Zemco Racing/Zemco Headers/Zemco Tool & Die/CES Engineering/All Things Automotive/No. 1 sprint car, was forced to battle by seven-time Tuscarora 50 champion, Lance Dewease, to earn his crown jewel triumph, doing so with less than two laps remaining. Dewease, who led laps 12 through 48 after taking command from St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu, held on to finish second, followed by Anthony Macri, Dylan Cisney, and Brent Marks.“I’m living the dream in a different universe, man, this is just unreal,” an elated Logan Wagner said in Port Royal Speedway victory lane. “I knew in that second 25-lapper that I had something for (Dewease). It was so awesome to race him clean…I didn’t even know how many laps were left when we got by him. I just ran as hard as I could…just about stuffed it into the fence a couple of times. I’m out of breath!”

Starting from the outside-pole position by way of feature redraw, Wagner made his presence known the entire 50-lap contest, never fading any further back than third and eventually concluding the first half of the 50-lapper in the second position. Dewease, who took the lead from Rico Abreu on lap 12, was the man in charge at the halfway break, and despite showing signs of an oil leak during the competition yellow, went on to start the second half and maintain his place on the point.

Although Wagner was able to apply some pressure in traffic on lap 34, a series of cautions on laps 36 and 38 allowed Dewease to navigate a clear track in clean air. It was not until lap 46 when traffic re-entered the picture allowing Wagner to try his hand at Dewease again. Hammering the very top of Port Royal’s thin, but ultra-fast groove, Wagner was able to show Dewease his nose lap 48, ultimately setting up his slingshot move the following circuit. Utilizing a great run off of two, Wagner powered by Dewease down the backstretch then dove into three, simultaneously sliding a lapper to create an impressive advantage as the white flag waved.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their September calendar with another round in the Keystone State, this time setting aim at Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway for back-to-back blockbusters on Friday and Saturday, September 17-18. The rescheduled Jack Gunn Memorial, featuring a $7,000-to-win headliner, will kick things off on Friday, followed by Lincoln’s $20,000-to-win Dirt Classic VIII on Saturday.
