Danny Dietrich Impressive Saturday In First Lincoln Speedway Victory Of 2022

Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / DANNY DIETRICH RACING – GETTYSBURG, PA – A great case of redemption for the three-time Central Pennsylvania sprint car champion, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich put on a show Saturday afternoon at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway and ultimately capped the program with his first victory of the 2022 season, charging ahead from tenth to first in 16 laps to secure a $4,000 payday.

Impressive enough, the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, native battled ahead to fifth in just three circuits, forced to eventually hold back Buch Motorsports’ Justin Peck in a caution induced one-lap shootout.

Adding to his Lincoln Speedway stat sheet, Dietrich was impressive in his heat race, as well, driving ahead from sixth to win. The feature victory bumps Danny Dietrich’s career total to 56 in the Pigeon Hills, his ninth since the start of the 2020 season.

As far as redemption goes, Dietrich was in pursuit of a victory on Friday night at Williams Grove Speedway, but a broken spark plug deterred all progress; “Double-D” was running fourth when the malfunction occurred.

“We needed that…bad,” Danny Dietrich said in relief, who was deterred after his Friday night run at Williams Grove was halted. “We’ve been good enough to win on multiple occasions this year, but I’m glad we were able to put it all together. I can’t thank this team enough for their hard work and support so far this season. Gary Kauffman, and all of our fans, too. It takes a lot to make a team go, as well as a lot of positivity. Everyone has been behind us one hundred percent and it’s given us the ability to stay positive. We’ll try to do it again next weekend.”

 

ON DECK:
Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will continue their 2022 campaign with another Pennsylvania doubleheader on Friday and Saturday, April 1-2, making their return to Williams Grove Speedway and Lincoln Speedway, respectively.
