GETTYSBURG, PA (October 18, 2017) – One of two Pennsylvania Posse regulars to finish inside the top-ten against the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich represented his Central Pennsylvania fans well on Saturday night at the Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, Pennsylvania; finishing seventh, officially, during the 30-lap, $10,000-to-win, Nittany Showdown. The Gettysburg native qualified for the main event by finishing third during his respective heat race, ultimately resulting in Dietrich’s fourth top-ten finish against the Greatest Show On Dirt in 2017.

“I’m proud of my team. Earning a top-ten finish against the World of Outlaws is not an easy task. There were only two Central Pennsylvania regulars to do that on Saturday night, so that says a lot about our program,” Dietrich explained, 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 get to go back to Port Royal Speedway this Saturday. We’ll put our notes to work and try to do one better.” Read more »

GETTYSBURG, PA (October 9, 2017) – Earning victory lucky number 13 during his recent weekend of competition, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich claimed the “Run What You Brung” program at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, October 6. Although Dietrich has been a frequent visitor to victory lane in Central Pennsylvania, Friday’s prize was not achieved easily. The Gettysburg native chased Fawn Grove youngster, Matt Campbell, for much of the 25-lap program, finally driving by the familiar No. 16 with less than a handful of circuits remaining. Dietrich and Campbell exchanged the lead nearly ten times during the course of the final three laps.

In addition, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich finished second at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, October 7. The finale in the Pigeon Hills allowed Dietrich to earn his 12th top-five finish of the season at Lincoln Speedway, seven of which resulting in trips to victory lane. Read more »

GETTYSBURG, PA (October 2, 2017) – A weekend that ended shy of expectation, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich joined the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series at Williams Grove Speedway for the annual Champion Racing Oil National Open during the recent weekend, highlighting his three-day campaign with a charge from row 13 to finish 13th on Thursday, September 28.

Unfortunately for Dietrich, a pair of incidents kept the Gettysburg native from earning respectable finishes on Thursday evening during the Summer Nationals make-up feature, as well as during Friday night’s Champion Racing Oil National Open preliminary program. “Double-D” ultimately recovered and qualified for the $50,000-to-win, National Open finale on Saturday and finished 18th, earning a spot in the marquee event by transferring through his respective heat race.
