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.
