GETTYSBURG, Pa. (October 8, 2018) – Danny Dietrich’s weekend in the heart of Pennsylvania Posse Country was just as consistent as it was impressive, knocking out three consecutive top-five finishes in two days, a feat that started on Friday night, October 5, during the Williams Grove Speedway season finale.

Dietrich, 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, finished third and fifth during his evening at The Grove; third during the evening’s regular program and fifth during the Al Hamilton Tribute main event which was made-up after being cancelled earlier in the year due to weather.

Impressive enough, Dietrich started eighth and 11th, respectively, during the Williams Grove Speedway main events, advancing a grand total of 11 positions in two features.

Adding to his consistent effort, ‘Double-D’ entered the $27,000-to-win Dirt Classic 5 at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on October 6 and finished fourth, bettering one position after starting fifth on the grid.

“It was a great weekend for our team. September was an emotional month for us so this was a good way to get October going on the right foot,” Danny Dietrich said, a ten-time Central Pennsylvania winner in 2018. “We have a lot on our plate this weekend. If the weather cooperates, we may be able to make four starts in three days.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing hope to make four starts in three days during the upcoming weekend, kicking things off with an unusual Friday night visit to the Port Royal Speedway ‘Speed Palace’ on Friday, October 12.

Action will continue on Saturday, October 13, with a Central PA doubleheader; Lincoln Speedway in the afternoon followed by a start at BAPS Motor Speedway later that evening. If the agenda continues according to plan, Dietrich will make his fourth and final start of the weekend on Sunday, October 14, during the World Series of Dirt Track Racing at Selinsgrove Speedway.
