GETTYSBURG, Pa. (November 11, 2019) – Although his 2019 World Finals campaign was engulfed with bad luck and frustrating results, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich made the most of his visit to The Dirt Track at Charlotte and concluded the three-day World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series finale with one main event start, missing a second by a pair of Last Chance Showdown (LCS) positions. The 14-time feature winner in 2019 highlighted all World Finals results with a 20th place feature score on Saturday, November 9.

A mechanical misfortune during his respective heat race was the evening’s overall catalyst. Read more »
