GETTYSBURG, Pa. (May 25, 2020) – Although the team’s final results were shy of the ultimate goal, Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing displayed a lot of speed during their visit to Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Missouri, and highlighted the World of Outlaws doubleheader with a 16th-place finish on Friday night, May 22. A fifth-place finish during heat race competition secured Dietrich’s spot in the 30-lap preliminary main event. 

Although recording the tenth-fastest time during his respective group of qualifying time trials, the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native had to settle with being the ‘odd man out’ during the entire Saturday program, first missing a heat race transfer slot by one position, only to miss the evening’s $20,000-to-win, 40-lap feature grid with a fifth-place run during the Last Chance Showdown. There were 61 cars that made the call on Saturday night. Read more »

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (April 9, 2020) – Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic halting short track action in its tracks, the competitive edge is far from lost, as Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich is eager to return to action as soon as facilities are permitted to do so. Dietrich, the 2019 Central PA Sprints and Williams Grove Speedway champion, is keeping his focus on what’s ahead and preparing his team for a possible uproot if sprint car racing should resume in other areas of the country before Pennsylvania is cleared. 

In addition, it has been determined that Dietrich will take his team west in August. The plan calls for a potential return to the Sprint Car Capital of the World for the 60th running of the world-renowned Knoxville Nationals. ‘Double-D’ qualified for the 2015 Nationals A-Main and finished 15th.
