GETTYSBURG, Pa. (November 11, 2019) – Although his 2019 World Finals campaign was engulfed with bad luck and frustrating results, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich made the most of his visit to The Dirt Track at Charlotte and concluded the three-day World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series finale with one main event start, missing a second by a pair of Last Chance Showdown (LCS) positions. The 14-time feature winner in 2019 highlighted all World Finals results with a 20th place feature score on Saturday, November 9.
Despite an eighth place outing in Friday’s Last Chance Showdown, ultimately missing main event competition, Dietrich put on an impressive display to get to that position; winning the evening’s C-main before rallying from 17th in the LCS. A mechanical misfortune during his respective heat race was the evening’s overall catalyst.
“The last two months have not been kind to us. If it weren’t for bad luck, we would have no luck at all. We’re ready for this chapter to be over,” Danny Dietrich explained, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sandoe’s Fruit Market/Pace Performance/Big Cove Whitetail Trophy Hunts/Drop Of Ink Tattoo/Sweeney Cars/Self Made/No. 48 sprint car. “Regardless, it was a great season for our team and I’m proud of my guys. I think we had enough potential to win three or four more races this year, but we’ll keep our heads up high and keep working hard. That’s all we can do.”
If all goes according to plan, Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will make the short trip to BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven on Saturday, November 16, and participate in the annaul Sprint Showdown; the final 410 sprint car race in the United States for 2019. The afternoon showstopper will award a $10,000 top prize.
