By Fully Injected Motorsports:
GETTYSBURG, PA (July 10, 2017) – A ten-day stretch that included one victory and two additional podium finishes, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich wrapped up his 2017 Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek campaign second in the final championship standings, earning a total of eight top-ten finishes in nine main event starts.
The pilot of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Gsell’s Whitetails/Hickory Run Orchards/Carlisle Auto Salvage/Self Made/No. 48 earned his Speedweek triumph at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway on Saturday, July 1. It was Dietrich’s seventh win of the season and his sixth in the Pigeon Hills.
Other Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek highlights for Dietrich include earning ninth and tenth place finishes at Williams Grove Speedway; a pair of sixth place finishes at Path Valley Speedway Park and Lincoln Speedway (July 3); a third place finish at Grandview Speedway; fifth place finish at Hagerstown (MD) Speedway; 14th place finish at Port Royal Speedway; and a runner-up finish at Selinsgrove Speedway to end the week on Sunday, July 9.
“It was a great week for our team. I think we were capable of a few more wins, but we came up a little short,” Dietrich explained. “Just an overall great effort by everyone involved. I can’t thank our fans enough for their support. They are the reason we are able to do this. We have some big shows coming up on our schedule, so hopefully we can keep things going in the right direction and beat the Outlaws at home in a few weeks.”
Danny Dietrich will continue his 2017 season by returning to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg on Friday night, July 14, for the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series Tune-Up; a final test session before the annual Summer Nationals featuring the Greatest Show On Dirt.
Dietrich’s weekend will continue on Saturday, July 15, with a visit to either Port Royal Speedway or Lincoln Speedway. A final decision will be made in the coming days.
