Lance started from P13 for the main event and pounced early on in the feature race, setting up the win in the Michael Figliomeni tribute event, crossing the line ahead of American Austin Brown and local stars Lee Redmond and Dayne Kingshott.
Earlier in the night he took a second and a win in the heats and despite the good results still had to dig deep for the final.
It was a tough night for Queenslander Troy Ware and American Darren Hagen who both started on the front row but did not progress from there.
Ware was slow to get away on the first attempt, lost a lot of valuable ground and then spun out while Hagan headed infield after only just making it out on the track after the team was forced to change the car’s ‘rear-end’.
Redmond was the early leader from Tyler Thomas, Lance (who had already made up some serious ground) and four-time Magic Man winner Davey Ray.
Thomas hit the lead after a handful of laps and opened up a gap until disaster struck on lap 10, cutting his right rear tyre and hitting the fence in turn one.
Lance continued his charge and got under Redmond on lap 11, running the lower line to perfection and getting an advantage.
Ray was in fourth but the car was struggling and after losing ground he eventually pulled infield on lap 15.
Brown took second spot on lap 16 after getting a move done on Redmond, pushed hard in the latter stages, only being 0.195 of a second behind Lance at the end of the race.
Nathan Smee started from P7 and finished fourth while Todd Waddell started P21 and finishied sixth in a strong drive.
Last year’s winner Kaiden Manders, who looked very strong in the heat races, started 17th and powered his way forward for seventh, while Ben Hall, Glen Mears and Scott Glazebrook rounded out the top 10.
Glazebrook was one of the drivers who did it the hard way, finishing fourth in the B Main and being one of six drivers transferred from that final into the back of the A Main field.
