I was just trying not to make a mistake.” Dietrich did not make any mistakes as he made his way through lapped traffic, “It was getting pretty treacherous around the top. The track’s pretty dag-on good.”
Saturday’s win was Dietrich’s third in the pigeon hills this year, “This car’s just really fast and fun to drive.” The victory was Danny’s 58th at the track putting Dietrich 6th on the all-time win list, just 8 wins behind Brian Montieth.
