Kyle Larson blasted around Lance Dewease on lap nine and won Friday night’s Tommy Hinnershitz Classic at Williams Grove Speedway.
From the outset, the legendary Dewease seemed on his way to win No. 100 at the track. But when Dewease happened to try the bottom navigating lapped traffic, Larson roared into the night.
On an evening where the Pennsylvania Posse faced its first true test of the year against the All Star Circuit of Champions, Larson stole the show and raced to victory.
The driver of the Hendrick Motorsports No. 5 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Cup Series pocketed the $6,000 winner’s purse in his first sprint car race of the year.
It’s Larson’s third win at Williams Grove Speedway in his past seven starts. Before last year, Larson went nearly a decade without a win at the tricky half-mile. Now, two of those recent victories have come against the track’s winningest driver, Dewease, who finished second, 2.707 seconds back.
