GETTYSBURG, Pa. (August 13, 2018) – A less than satisfying performance during Knoxville Nationals preliminary competition allowed “Double-D” Danny Dietrich so make the easy decision to travel east and compete at Mansfield Motor Speedway.

Dietrich, who was scheduled to start 19th in the Knoxville Nationals C-main on Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway, decided to bypass any competition and make the overnight trek east to Mansfield, Ohio. The decision proved to be worth the effort, ultimately earning a podium finish during the $20,000-to-win Great Lakes Dirt Nationals at the state-of-the-art facility. Read more »

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (July 31, 2018) – Once again, Danny Dietrich is heading west during the early weeks of August, anxious to join the Greatest Show On Dirt during starts in Missouri and Iowa, first visiting the Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., on Friday and Saturday, August 3 & 4. Known as the Ironman 55, the 2018 edition will feature back-to-back full programs awarding $20,000 to the main event winners. Each feature will be 55 laps in distance.

“I’m excited to get back to Pevely. It should be a lot of fun,” Danny Dietrich explained, 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. “We don’t get to race on many ovals shaped like I-55. Hopefully we can make good things happen during our trip west. A few, good starts in Pevely would give us some positive momentum heading into the Nationals.” Read more »
