Danny Dietrich Scores Second Victory of Ohio Speedweek At Limaland

LIMA, OH – For the second time this week, “Double-D” Danny Dietrich is a Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, scoring round eight of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires at Limaland Motorsports Park in Lima, Ohio. Leading every circuit of the 25-lap program, Dietrich was relatively untouchable, utilizing the pole position to jump ahead before sailing off for a $6,000 payday. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, native and ace of the Gary Kauffman Racing/Weikert’s Livestock/Sweeney Cars/No. 48 sprint car is now a 17-time winner with America’s Series, bumping his individual track list to 13.

“Hats off to everyone here tonight, especially the fans for hanging tough while the Series figured some things out,” Danny Dietrich expressed regarding the dustier than usual track conditions during the preliminary segment of the program. “Regardless, I can’t thank my team enough for their hard work this week. We love coming to Ohio Speedweek. The fans out here have done nothing but treat me like one of their own and I’m incredibly thankful for it. We have a big one tomorrow night at Portsmouth, so our plan is to head back home to Pennsylvania with some more hardware.”

Dietrich’s only real distraction during Lima’s 25-lapper was a run-in with traffic in the closing circuits, forced to check up while slower cars battled two and three wide. Parker Price-Miller, who pressured Dietrich late while maneuvering through traffic, finished second on the Lima quarter-mile, followed by Brent Marks, Tyler Courtney, and Cap Henry.

The All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude the 40th edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek with Portsmouth Raceway Park’s highly sought after Dean Knittel Memorial on Saturday, June 18.

Awarding a top prize of $20,554, the Dean Knittel Memorial is not only the highest paying program on the Speedweek schedule, but it’s one of the highest paying programs on the entire All Star slate, trumped only by Lernerville’s $25,000-to-win Silver Cup, I-70 Speedway’s $26,000-to-win Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race, Port Royal Speedway’s $29,000-to-win Bob Weikert Memorial, and Port Royal Speedway’s $55,000-to-win Tuscarora 50.
