GETTYSBURG, Pa. (March 25, 2019) – Although a frustrating weekend in the Keystone State, losing action on Friday to Mother Nature followed by a 15th place finish at Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, ‘Double-D’ Danny Dietrich will shake it off and try again this Friday and Saturday, March 29 & 30, with another round of action in Posse Country.  

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, will enter the upcoming weekend with one victory to his credit thus far in 2019, that occurring at the ‘Fabulous’ Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, March 16.

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 »

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (March 11, 2019) – Despite kicking off his 2019 campaign with a series of lackluster performances in the Sunshine State, ‘Double D’ Danny Dietrich was able to put that frustration behind him, ultimately scoring his first podium run of the season during Lincoln Speedway’s annual Icebreaker.

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, finished third during Pennsylvania’s signature sprint car season opener, maintaining that position the entire distance on a quick, but narrow racing surface.

Danny Dietrich started third by virtue of a draw, earning his way into the feature redraw by finishing third during the third of three heat races.

“Feels good to be back at Lincoln Speedway. We really didn’t have the Florida trip that we were working for, but we’ll take this and use it as a fresh start,” Danny Dietrich said, a ten-time main event winner in 2018, five of which at Lincoln Speedway. “I really can’t believe we got this in [on Sunday]. Hats off to the whole Lincoln staff. Hopefully the weather will calm down a little bit and allow us to race without any interruptions.”

If all goes according to plan, Danny Dietrich will enter three events in two days during the upcoming weekend, first attempting ‘the double’ on Saturday, March 16. ‘Double D’ will kick off the day with a visit to Lincoln Speedway. If their afternoon program finishes in a timely manner, Dietrich will make the quick turnaround and head north to Port Royal Speedway.

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will end the weekend with the Williams Grove Speedway season opener on Sunday, March 17.
