GETTYSBURG, Pa. (September 5, 2023) – A long, holiday weekend in Pennsylvania Posse Country always results in a big agenda for the state’s top open wheel competitors, and Gettysburg’s own Danny Dietrich certainly took advantage of the opportunity, ultimately concluding his four-race stretch on September 1-4 with four straight top-ten scores, all of which highlighted with a runner-up performance in Lincoln Speedway’s Dirt Classic X finale on Sunday, September 3. The former Lincoln Speedway track champion was nearly one spot better, and although a last corner pass secured the top spot briefly, eventual winner, Brent Marks, escaped the attempt and clinched the $20,000 payday.
Other holiday weekend highlights for Dietrich, ace of Gary Kauffman’s Weikert’s Livestock, Sandoe’s Fruit Market, Pace Performance, #1 Cochran Expressway, Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts, Drop Of Ink Tattoo, Self Made Racing, No. 48 sprint car, include a third-place result in Williams Grove Speedway’s Jim and Sandy Kline Tribute on Friday, September 1, followed by a fourth-place result in Lincoln’s $10,000-to-win Dirt Classic preliminary on Saturday, September 2. “Double-D” raced on to conclude his Labor Day weekend with a sixth-place finish in Port Royal Speedway’s annual Labor Day Classic on Monday afternoon, September 4.
Dietrich, a six-time winner thus far in 2023, will roll into the coming weekend with a whopping 44 top-ten results this season, 33 of which occurring within the top five.
“A great way to get September going. We wanted to be one spot better on Sunday, but we were close,” Dietrich expressed. “There’s a lot more money on the line this weekend. A $56,000 payday at Port Royal would make us feel a little bit better about not getting it done in Lincoln’s Dirt Classic.”
Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2023 campaign with a trip to Port Royal, Pennsylvania’s Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace” on Thursday through Saturday, September 7-9. The 56th Annual Tuscarora 50 will be the weekend headliner, highlighted by back-to-back $10,000-to-win preliminaries on Thursday and Friday, all of which followed by the 50-lap, $56,000-to-win Tuscarora 50 finale on Saturday.
