DIETRICH DOES IT AGAIN; BEATS WORLD OF OUTLAWS AT LINCOLN SPEEDWAY
May 16, 2013, 23:47

Turns Lincoln season around after leading every lap for a second straight year

 

ABBOTTSTOWN, PA , 5/16/13 – He did it again.

 

Defending Lincoln champ Danny Dietrich turned around a rough start to the 2013 season by leading every lap of World of Outlaws STP Sprint Series feature on Thursday night.

 

“These guys are tough,” said a jubilant Dietrich after finishing a celebratory wing dance on top of his Gary Kauffman-owned Sandoe’s Fruit Market #48 in victory lane, “And I have respect for all of them. Hopefully, we can continue this luck into tomorrow and Saturday (at Williams Grove).”

 

Luck did play into Dietrich’s night. A little girl from the stands drew the #8 pill for the inversion, placing Dietrich on the pole for the dash. His subsequent win in the 6-lap dash put him on the pole for the 35-lap “A” main.

 

Earlier, Dietrich came out late in time trials and turned a lap of 13.918 seconds, good enough for 14th quick and placing him on the pole for his heat.

 

By virtue of his second-place finish in the dash, five-time World of Outlaw champ Donny Schatz started beside Dietrich in the front row and challenged Dietrich for the lead the entire way. Thrilling wheel-to-wheel racing that saw Schatz stay within a car length of Dietrich forced fans to their feet from laps 15 through 26.

 

It wasn’t until after a lap 27 caution for a spinning Craig Dollansky that Dietrich was able to pull away, crossing about four car lengths in front of the STP #15 as the two caught lapped traffic as they crossed under the checkered flag.

 

“That was all joking around,” said Dietrich about his bold talk this week on the internet, “But to back it up feels great.”

 

“I want to thank all the fans for coming out,” concluded Dietrich, “This is the best track in the country to race and see a race!”

 

The crowd was so huge that the 50/50 winner won more than Dietrich. Proceeds from the 50/50 drawing were donated to the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing.

 

Sammy Swindell came from sixth starting spot to finish third, with Tim Kaeding (in his first ever Lincoln run) and invader Brad Sweet completing the top five. Three-time 2013 Lincoln winner Brent Marks was sixth.

Daryn Pittman earned the KSE Hard Charger Award after maneuvering from 17th to 7th. Rounding out the top ten were Lincoln points leader Fred Rahmer, invader Sam Hafertepe, Jr., and Brian Montieth.

 

Sammy Swindell set quick time over the 43-car field with a lap of 13.617-seconds (99.141 MPH). Kaeding, Dietrich, Schatz, and Marks each claimed a heat race, with Jason Sides winning the C Main and David Gravel the “B” Main Last Chance Showdown.
