GETTYSBURG, Pa. (August 20, 2018) – A weekend certainly interrupted by Mother Nature, Danny Dietrich did not have a lot to choose from during his recent stretch of competition, as his only start of the weekend occurred at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, August 18.

Dietrich, certainly no stranger to the Pigeon Hills, finished sixth during feature action on Saturday night, the result of a rally from 15th on the grid. In addition, the 25-lap main event went green to checkered; no cautions and completed in just over six minutes.

“This weather is definitely getting old, I can tell you that much,” Danny Dietrich said, driver 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 sprint car. “Obviously, there is nobody to blame. It just gets really frustrating. Oh well. We have a lot of racing this weekend. Hopefully we can put some solid runs together and give the All Stars a run for their money.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will join the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 during all four of their scheduled appearances in Central Pennsylvania during the upcoming weekend, first visiting the always-exciting Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville on Thursday, August 23.

All Star action will resume with the Jack Gunn Memorial at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, August 24, followed by stops at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, August 25, and BAPS Motor Speedway on Sunday, August 26. Certainly one of the highlights of the weekend, the Williams Grove Speedway visit will feature twin, 20-lap features, each awarding a $4,000 top prize.

A heavy, local favorite for the weekend, Dietrich will enter the four-race, All Star swing with nine victories on the season, seven of which accumulated during starts at Lincoln Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway and BAPS Motor Speedway.
