GETTYSBURG, PA. (October 17, 2016) – For the first time in his career, Danny Dietrich is a National Open champion at Williams Grove Speedway; earning $25,000 for his efforts, as well as his first World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series victory of the 2016 season.

In dramatic fashion, “Double-D” took command of the 40-lap, National Open main event with just two circuits remaining, eventually driving by Joey Saldana to officially lead lap 39 and lap 40, securing his place on top of the feature podium for the largest payday of his career. The win also increased Dietrich’s top-five total to four on the season against the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series; his second of October.

“Oh man, this is awesome. I owe this all to my entire team. They bust their butts and make victories like this possible. We put ourselves in position early, so we had to capitalize,” Danny Dietrich explained. “I knew I was going to have something for Joey there at the end. I was really able to make the bottom work. That was about the only place I was really good at. The top of turns one and two were quick, and I was really good on the bottom of three and four. Regardless, we made it work and we scored the big one.” Read more »
