GETTYSBURG, Pa. (February 12, 2018) – Like many of the nation’s elite, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich kicked-off his 2018 campaign with a trip to the Sunshine State, entering a mixed schedule of Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 and World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series events at Bubba Raceway Park and Volusia Speedway Park between February 1-11.
Despite his schedule cut short due to motor issues, Dietrich entered six events during his Florida campaign – five with the All Stars and one with the World of Outlaws – earning a trio of top-ten performances against the All Star Circuit of Champions. The 2017 Central PA Sprint Series presented by Hoseheads.com champion highlighted his trip with a seventh place finish on Wednesday, February 7, at Volusia Speedway Park, earning his spot in the 30-lap, $5,000-to-win, All Star program by finishing second during his respective heat race.
“Despite a motor issue at the end of the second week, I think we had a really good trip,” Danny Dietrich, pilot 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, explained. “I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work and dedication to make this trip successful. It’s not easy going to Florida and racing with that level of competition. It’s always a tough group of cars. To leave Florida with three top-tens says a lot. Maybe we were in position to do a little bit better, but we’ll take this and run with it.”
Danny Dietrich will continue his 2018 campaign with the annual Pennsylvania lidlifter; the “Icebreaker 30” at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., on Saturday, February 24. The afternoon program will award a $4,000 top prize, officially kicking-off the Pennsylvania sprint car season. If weather becomes a factor, the event will move to Sunday, February 25.
Dietrich is the defending “Icebreaker 30” champion at Lincoln Speedway, his first of seven victories in the Pigeon Hills.
