New Team, New Year, Dewease Is Ready
PETERSEN MEDIA: With longtime car owner, Donny Owens, electing to no longer field a sprint car team, Lance Dewease has joined Heffner Racing as their new driver for the very aggressive schedule that the team put together.
“Donny Owens decided to lessen his role in the sport for 2013, and that opened up a door of opportunity for the both of us,”Dewease said. “2013 looks like it’s going to be a big year as Donnie will continue to support us while we make the jump to Heffner Racing. Mike Heffner and his team have been successful in the past, and I’m looking forward to getting started.
Scheduled to kick their season off in Georgia on Thursday with the All Star Circuit of Champions, the team plans to stay busy all year long, as they will be in action 108 times with several trips to the Midwest, with the biggest sanctioning bodies in the sport aside from competing weekly in Pennsylvania.
“It’s going to be grueling, but overall I think it will be fun, and I think we will win some races,” he said.
With trips to Knoxville planned to tune up for the Nationals, the Heffner Racing team will also compete for the All Star Circuit of Champions East Region Championship, a title Dewease captured in 2011.
“We had a decent Knoxville Nationals last year, and with us getting out to Knoxville a few times before August this year, I am hopeful we can learn some things and be in contention for the big one.”
