April 30th, 2018

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (April 30, 2018) – Representing the Pennsylvania Posse fans well during his visit to Mansfield (Ohio) Motor Speedway, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich earned a top-ten finish during the inaugural Sprint Car World Championship on Saturday evening, April 28, mounting a charge from the outside of row six to finish sixth during the 50-lap, $100,000-to-win finale.

 

In actuality, Dietrich scored two top-ten finishes during his weekend at Mansfield Motor Speedway, opening the two-day blockbuster with a fifth place finish during preliminary competition on Friday, April 27. Since the Gettysburg native did not finish inside the top-four, an automatic transfer position into the 50-lap finale, Dietrich was forced to participate in one of six heat races on Saturday.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (April 9, 2018) – Three events in three days resulted in three consecutive top-ten finishes for “Double-D” Danny Dietrich, all capped off with a victory at BAPS Motor Speedway near York Haven, Pa., on Sunday, April 8.

The victory, his second of the 2018 season and his first at the venue formerly known as Susquehanna Speedway, occurred in fantastic fashion, working ahead from sixth on the main event grid to eventually drive around tenth starting Lance Dewease on lap 17.

Dietrich earned his third row starting position by way of feature redraw, qualifying for the evening’s draw after finishing second during his respective heat race.

“Things are starting to click now,” Danny Dietrich explained, pilot of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Gsell’s Whitetails/Hickory Run Orchards/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Sweeney Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprinter. “We were working on things all weekend, but I think we finally fixed what was wrong. Lance (Dewease) was good at the start of that race, but it’s 30 laps. You have to be strong the entire distance and we proved we were still good at the end. Hopefully we can put our notes to good use this weekend when the All Stars come to town.”
