GETTYSBURG, Pa. (April 29, 2019) – Although not resulting in a trip to victory lane, Danny Dietrich’s visit to the Port Royal ‘Speed Palace’ on Saturday, April 27, did result in a top-ten performance; his 11th of the season and his fifth at Port Royal Speedway. ‘Double-D’ finished fourth, officially, during his trip to the Juniata County Fairgrounds half-mile, advancing one position after starting from the inside of row three.

Dietrich, 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, earned his third row starting position by way of heat race passing points; Dietrich finished fourth during his respective heat.

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (April 22, 2019) – Danny Dietrich is not only adding victories to his win list, but he is also adding tracks, now with one victory at four different Central Pennsylvania venues thus far in 2019.

Dietrich, 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, earned his fourth victory of 2019 during competition at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday, April 20.

Impressive enough, Dietrich earned his first Port Royal win of 2019 from the outside of row four, eventually forced to outduel former Port Royal Speedway champion, Brock Zearfoss, during a restart with one lap remaining. In fact, Zearfoss gained control over Dietrich as the pair battled through turns one and two on the final circuit. A last minute misdirection by Dietrich to drive back under Zearfoss at the exit of turn two solidified his victory. Read more »

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (April 1, 2019) – First of all, Happy April Fools’ Day. Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will not be traveling with the World of Outlaws in 2020.

Danny Dietrich made it look easy on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, ultimately leading all 25 circuits to clinch his second victory of the 2019 season.

Dietrich, who also owns a victory at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway, started from the pole position on Friday night and never looked back, absolutely dominating the field for a 20th-career victory at the half-mile paperclip, this one worth just over $4,000.

“That was fun,” Danny Dietrich said, 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. “Starting from the pole on a quick surface like this, you really have to take advantage of it. I really wasn’t sure how good we were, but I didn’t feel any pressure, so I just kept clicking off laps and it all worked out. I can’t thank this team enough for their hard work. More wins will come.”

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (March 18, 2019) – For the first time in 2019, Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing are main event winners in Central Pennsylvania. The victory, a third consecutive podium finish for ‘Double-D’ in the Keystone State, was worth $3,500.

Although the nearby-Gettysburg native started from the pole position, it was not an easy victory, as the former Lincoln Speedway track champion lost command to Anthony Macri during the early stages of the main event. Although Macri was seemingly in control, Dietrich tracked him down in a hurry, actually battling back within a car length with just three laps remaining. Read more »
