GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 27, 2021) – Dietrich’s weekend results may not have ended in the manner he wanted, but the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native battled hard and added several marks to the stat book, knocking out another pair of top-ten finishes including a runner-up outcome in Selinsgrove Speedway’s Jim Nace Memorial National Open on Saturday, September 25.
Starting from the pole position, Dietrich battled for the race lead early, eventually snagging the top spot from Midwest hotshot and outside pole sitter, Brian Brown, on lap ten. Dietrich maintained control for the next 20 circuits, doing everything he could to block the progress of Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri. Unfortunately for Dietrich, the eighth-starting Macri proved to be too strong, as “Double-D” was forced to take a backseat to the eventual winner on lap 30. Dietrich kicked-off the Jim Nace Memorial with a heat race victory.
Just one night prior to his Selinsgrove podium, Dietrich participated in Williams Grove Speedway’s Outlaw Tune Up where he finished sixth after starting tenth.
“I don’t think we’ll ever be satisfied unless we win. We had a lot of speed this weekend, and my guys worked their butts off, but we were still short. We know what we have to do, so we’ll do everything we can to get ourselves into National Open shape this week,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Bowhunters Superstore, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car. “We need to improve our qualifying effort, especially against the World of Outlaws. We can’t get ourselves in a hole…it will be tough to recover.”
Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with Williams Grove Speedway’s National Open featuring the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday, October 1-2. The two-day blockbuster will be headlined with a $75,000-to-win main event on Saturday; the weekend will ignite with a $10,000 preliminary. “Double-D” will enter the program with six victories on the season, accomplishing his most recent at BAPS Motor Speedway on Thursday, September 16.
