GETTYSBURG, PA (June 5, 2017) – “Double-D” Danny Dietrich ended his recent weekend of competition on the podium twice, scoring back-to-back runner-up finishes during action at Williams Grove (PA) Speedway and Port Royal (PA) Speedway on Friday and Saturday, June 2-3, respectively. Dietrich, who is currently on top of the Central PA Sprint Series presented by Hoseheads.com point standings, has been on the podium three times at Williams Grove Speedway in 2017, also earning prior podiums at Port Royal Speedway, one of which during Bob Weikert Memorial weekend.

“We were close again, just not close enough,” Danny Dietrich explained. “We’ll never be disappointed with runner-up finishes, but we want to be back on top. Regardless, I’m proud of everyone involved. I have a great crew and an amazing fan base. We have big things coming ahead. It’s going to be a great month of June.”

Danny Dietrich will continue his 2017 campaign with a Central Pennsylvania triple-header comprised of events at Susquehanna Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway on Thursday through Saturday, June 8-10, respectively. The three-race weekend will commence on Thursday evening with SprintCarUnlimited.com Night at Susquehanna Speedway in York Haven.

Dietrich, pilot of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Gsell’s Whitetails/Hickory Run Orchards/Carlisle Auto Salvage/CATS Used Truck Parts/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Bowman Block & Head Repair/Sweeney Cars/Self Made/No. 48, will enter the weekend with four victories on the season, three of which at Lincoln Speedway in the Pigeon Hills.

Looking ahead, Dietrich will soon join the USAC Amsoil National Sprint Car Series for events in Central Pennsylvania during the Series’ annual Eastern Storm, piloting the familiar Tom Buch-owned No. 13 against some of the most competitive non-wing racers in the world.

“We have a big weekend ahead, followed by an even bigger week,” Dietrich said. “I’m excited for the opportunity to race with the wing off in a few weeks. It should be a lot of fun.”
