GETTYSBURG, PA (August 22, 2016) – Danny Dietrich battled tough for two top-ten finishes against the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions during the recent weekend, earning one main event victory in the process, raising his season win total to six. The victory, occurring at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, August 20, after starting second on the feature grid, earned the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, native $5,000 for his efforts, winning by nearly three seconds over a pair of fellow “Pennsylvania Posse” competitors, Alan Krimes and Lucas Wolfe. The Arctic Cat All Star victory was his second of the season, also beating the traveling series at Selinsgrove Speedway in Selinsgrove with a final lap pass over Dave Blaney in late April.

“We were pretty happy to be back at Lincoln Speedway,” Dietrich said. “I feel like we haven’t been there in a long time. I think we have something figured out with this race car. We still have a lot of racing left. I plan to keep this success going and work for some more wins down the road.” Read more »

GETTYSBURG, PA. (August 15, 2016) – “Double-D” Danny Dietrich represented the “Pennsylvania Posse” fans well during the 56th running of the Knoxville Nationals in Knoxville, Iowa, qualifying for Saturday night’s B-main after finishing 12th during preliminary competition on Wednesday evening, August 10. Unfortunately for Dietrich, the potential to qualify for Saturday night’s $150,000-to-win main event for a second consecutive year ended quickly, the consequence of contact with another competitor during the initial B-main start, ultimately resulting in a broken front axle. Dietrich would be scored 24th.

“Not a bad week. I was ‘OK’ for the most part. We had a few things not go our way, but that’s how racing goes at times,” Dietrich explained. “We needed to put ourselves in a better position after qualifying during our preliminary night. Timing 22nd-quick doesn’t do a lot for you in terms of points. Those two laps really set the tone for the entire week. Luckily for me, I have a great team who stayed focused the entire time we were out there. Qualifying for the B-main is a little short compared to where we were last year, but regardless, we’ll take what we learned, stay proud of what we accomplished, and move on. I just want to send out a special shoutout to our fans who traveled out to Knoxville to cheer us on. Feels good to have support like we do. We certainly appreciate it.” Read more »
