Danny Dietrich scores trio of podium finishes in New York; Ohio Sprint Speedweek next
GETTYSBURG, Pa. (June 12, 2018) – “Double-D” Danny Dietrich put together an impressive streak of finishes during the recent weekend, scoring four consecutive top-ten performances from June 7 through June 10, highlighting the weekend with three podium runs, two of which against the All Star Circuit of Champions in New York.
Dietrich, a five-time winner during sprint car competition thus far in 2018, kicked-off his extended weekend with a third place finish at BAPS Motor Speedway near York Haven, Pa., on Thursday, June 7, followed by a second place finish against Tony Stewart’s All Stars at Outlaw Speedway in Dundee, N.Y., on Friday, June 8.
Continuing All Star competition in the Empire State, Dietrich rallied from 17th to finish seventh at Stateline Speedway near Jamestown, N.Y., on Saturday, June 9, all capped off with a third place performance during feature competition at Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport on Sunday, June 10. Dietrich’s weekend stats were more than impressive, advancing a grand total of 29 positions over the course of four main events, all of which contested at four different tracks in two states.
“To put together a stretch of solid finishes like that says a lot about this team. I’m proud of my guys and what we were able to accomplish last weekend,” 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. “It’s fun to head out on the road like that and visit some different areas. We have a lot of racing ahead of us. Hopefully we can keep this streak alive.”
Up next on the schedule, Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will venture west and rejoin the All Star Circuit of Champions for a series of starts in the Buckeye State, anxious to tackle the 36th edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek. Dietrich, the reigning Central PA Sprint Series point champion, will join the All Stars during Speedweek events at Attica Raceway Park (6/15), Eldora Speedway (6/16), Waynesfield Raceway Park (6/17), Wayne County Speedway (6/18), Sharon Speedway (6/19), Atomic Speedway (6/20), and Muskingum County Speedway (6/21).
