Dietrich advances 21 positions in two days during visits to Williams Grove and Port Royal

By Fully Injected Motorsports:

GETTYSBURG, Pa. (March 29, 2021) – In terms of final results, it was a successful weekend for Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing, but the path toward success was long and strenuous.

Dietrich, 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, Graver’s Garage, No. 48 sprint car, earned a top-ten and podium, respectively, during his weekend in Pennsylvania Posse Country, kicking things off on Friday night with an impressive rally from 24th to finish ninth at Williams Grove Speedway.

Illustrious on paper, Dietrich was actually forced to buy his main event starting position after failing to transfer through the evening’s consolation race. Brake malfunctions were the culprit, but last minute negotiations with the consolation’s sixth-place finisher allowed Dietrich to make the 25-lap finale.

A much smoother path toward success on Saturday night at the Port Royal Speedway “Speed Palace,” Dietrich turned a fifth row starting position into a podium result, ultimately climbing six spots to finish third, keeping a fast-closing Logan Wagner at bay in the final circuits.

“Double-D” was scheduled to visit Selinsgrove Speedway for “March Madness” action on Sunday, March 28, but Mother Nature ruined plans before they could begin.

“That just goes to show why working with a team that refuses to give up is so important,” Danny Dietrich said, who owns one victory in Central Pennsylvania thus far in 2021. “We couldn’t catch a break on Friday. Every time we thought things may go our way, they didn’t. But, we were able to turn a rough situation into something good and I’m proud we were able to do that. We’ll do our best to start fresh on Friday and try to get through the program a little smoother.”

Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2021 campaign with an Easter weekend double, first returning to the famed Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, followed by a Saturday destination that has yet to be determined. Like weeks prior, Williams Grove Speedway will award a $5,500 payday.
