GETTYSBURG, PA (July 24, 2017) – Continuing a busy stretch of schedule, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich will spend the upcoming week and weekend competing in a variety of events in parts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York where he will battle not only the Pennsylvania Posse, but also the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions. The Gettysburg native will kick-off his week with Jersey Rush VII at New Egypt (NJ) Speedway on Tuesday, July 25.

“We like to stay busy,” Dietrich said, full-time 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. “We’ve had some pretty successful stretches as of lately. This is a great time of the year to be fast, so we’ll work to keep that going clear through the Knoxville Nationals.”

After his visit to New Jersey, Dietrich will turn his focus back toward competition in Central Pennsylvania, visiting Williams Grove Speedway for a regular racing program on Friday, July 28, followed by the annual Living Legends Dream Race at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, July 29. The Living Legends Dream Race main event will award a minimum of $10,000, also featuring a pair of semi-features that will award $2,000 each.

Dietrich will conclude his upcoming week with a trip to The Empire State, joining the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions at Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, New York, on Sunday, July 30. The event will award a $7,000 top prize, as well as a minimum of $1,000 to each feature starter.

Splitting seat time, Dietrich will enter action in New Jersey and New York in the Tom Buch-owned/Apex/Sweeney Cars/ No. 13.

“Double-D” will enter the week with seven victories on the season, six at Lincoln (PA) Speedway and one at Williams Grove Speedway, and currently sits on top of the Central PA Sprint Cars presented by Hoseheads point standings. Dietrich’s most recent victory was earned at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway during Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek, scoring $7,000 after 30, non-stop laps on July 1.

During recent sprint car competition, Dietrich was scored 22nd against the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series during the Champion Racing Oil Summer Nationals preliminary at Williams Grove Speedway. A potential top-ten drive was cut short after making contact with another competitor.
