GETTYSBURG, Pa. (April 15, 2019) – It was an exciting weekend for ‘Double-D’ Danny Dietrich, and although the Gettysburg-native was unable to find victory lane with the All Star Circuit of Champions, the former Series winner did the next best thing and scored a pair of runner-up finishes during action at Virginia Motor Speedway and Port Royal Speedway on Thursday and Saturday, April 11 & 13, respectively.

In addition, the driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Sweeney Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car led 34 laps of All Star competition during the recent weekend; six laps at Virginia Motor Speedway on Thursday and 28 laps at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday.

Ironically enough, a caution with two laps remaining served Dietrich his fate during each night of action. That trend ignited at Virginia Motor Speedway when yellow flags erased all potential for Dietrich to regain the lead from Cory Eliason in traffic. Dietrich was in hot pursuit of the California-native, but caution flags allowed Eliason to restart on a clear track in clean air.

On Saturday at the Port Royal ‘Speed Palace,’ Dietrich led the first 28 circuits, all before losing the lead to Lance Dewease during a restart.

“That was quite the weekend. I wish the weather would have cooperated to allow us to race more than twice, but still a great effort by my team. We’ve been working hard and the results show,” Danny Dietrich said, who owns three victories thus far in 2019. “We were good enough to win both races, I feel like, but sometimes that’s not how things go. We have a lot of racing left this season. The wins will come.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2019 campaign with a pair of stops in Central Pennsylvania, first visiting Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, April 19, followed by a stop at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, April 20.
