January 26, 2023, St. Louis – DeAndre Lewis of Glen Carbon, Illinois, is a new face in the champion’s circle at World Wide Technology Raceway. Lewis piloted his 2002 Hayabusa to victory over Scott Leonard on July 10. His consistency over the course of the season helped him capture the Willis Racing Pro Motorcycle title by the slimmest of margins – 11 points – over any other bracket class.
