GETTYSBURG, PA (September 19, 2017) – Danny Dietrich has been close, finishing second in 2016 after leading five laps, but has yet to capture a Dirt Classic title at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway. After a year of waiting, the Gettysburg native will finally have another opportunity to collect the $20,000 top prize and become just the third Dirt Classic champion since its inaugural event in 2014.

Headlining action in the Pigeon Hills on Saturday, September 23, the 4th Annual Dirt Classic will feature Pennsylvania’s finest, as well as a few of the nation’s top-talented teams.

“We could say this about a lot of races, but we really want to win this one. We were close last year. We’ve been strong enough at Lincoln this year to know where we need to be and what we have to do. I think we have a great shot,” Dietrich said about the Dirt Classic, a winner of seven main events at Lincoln Speedway in 2017. Read more »

GETTYSBURG, PA (September 12, 2017) – Joining the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions at the Port Royal “Speed Palace” on September 8-9, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich ended his recent weekend of competition with a pair of sixth place finishes, one of which during the 50th running of the Tuscarora 50 worth $50,000; the largest event in the history of Port Royal Speedway.

The entire weekend proved to be a success for the Gettysburg native, solidifying feature qualification on both nights by finishing no worse than second during his respective heat races. Despite falling to sixth by features end, Dietrich battled hard during the Tuscarora 50 finale on Saturday night, pressuring eventual winner, Lance Dewease, for the top spot until the pair entered traffic.

GETTYSBURG, PA (September 5, 2017) – For a second consecutive season, the third time in four tries, Gettysburg’s Danny Dietrich parked on top of Port Royal Speedway’s infield victory lane stage during the annual Labor Day Classic. A victory that stunned everyone in attendance, Dietrich charged forward from tenth on the grid to earn the $4,000 payday, driving by race leader, Brock Zearfoss, on the bottom of the speedway as the pair drag raced toward the final checkers. The victory, accomplished while flying the Weikert’s Livestock colors, was Dietrich’s 11th of the 2017 season, as well as his first at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace.”

“I drove my ass off yesterday,” Dietrich said about his Labor Day Classic victory. “This definitely makes up for the rest of the weekend. We had a few finishes that were a little less than stellar by our standards at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday and Sunday, so this helps us forget about those. What can I say. I have a great group of people who support this team and everything I do. This one was for them.” Read more »
