GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 12, 2020) – “Double-D” Danny Dietrich was just one position shy of a World of Outlaws triumph on Friday night at the Port Royal “Speed Palace,” opening the two-day Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway with a runner-up performance after starting in the exact same position. Forced to chase Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson the entire distance, Dietrich had an opportunity to overtake the top spot during a late restart, but the mission was missed. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native earned his way into the feature program by winning his respective heat race, eventually finishing second in the evening’s dash.

Although missing the top-ten, Dietrich’s route to finish 13th during the Nittany Showdown finale was most impressive, first winning the evening’s Last Chance Showdown before rallying from 21st to settle into 13th. The former Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway champion was forced to compete in the Last Chance Showdown after finishing tenth in his Saturday night heat race; an issue with tire bleeders caused Dietrich to lose any potential to transfer.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 5, 2020) – Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich was well on his way to a top-ten performance on Saturday evening during Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open finale when a sliced right-rear tire ended all of his forward progress.
