Abbottstown, PA (July 8, 2023) – Three weeks after scoring his first win at Lincoln of the season, Danny Dietrich was back in victory lane on Saturday night. Dietrich drove through the field from his tenth starting spot to take the lead on lap 11. Danny would have a commanding lead of nearly six seconds when the caution came out on lap 19. Dietrich’s win was his 63rd career victory at Lincoln, putting him only three races behind Brian Montieth on the all-time win list.
Tyler Esh and Glenndon Forsythe made up the front row for the drop of the green flag on Saturday night. Esh and Forsythe raced side by side through turns 1 and 2 with Esh getting the advantage down the back stretch to lead lap 1. Forsythe was running second with Brett Strickler in third. Billy Dietrich was searching for a way around Strickler for third when Danny Dietrich joined the fight for the spot. The yellow flag flew for the first time on lap 3 when Cameron Smith was sitting sideways in turn 4.
Esh, Forsythe, Strickler and brothers Billy and Danny Dietrich made up the top five for the restart. Forsythe got under Esh on the restart to challenge for the lead but the caution came out for Billy Dietrich who was stopped on the back stretch.
With Billy out of the running, Jordan Givler restarted fifth behind Esh, Forsythe, Strickler and Danny. Esh had a better restart this time and kept Forsythe at bay. Danny was up next to Strickler at the line and took third on lap 5. Danny made quick work of Forsythe and was up to second on lap 6, but the caution came out before the lap was scored. The yellow was for fluid on the front stretch.
Esh had another good restart, leaving Forsythe to fend off Danny. Stricker, Givler and Trey Hivner were in a three-car battle for fourth. Danny was second at the line on lap 8 and Givler had moved into fourth. Danny reeled in Esh and got under him in turns 1 and 2. Dietrich took the lead on lap 11 and started to pull away from the field. Troy Wagaman entered into the top five and Forsythe was working on Esh for second. Danny had a 4.7 second lead on lap 15 as he entered lapped traffic. Chase Dietz and Freddie Rahmer were in a fierce battle for sixth. The battle eventually caught up to Givler and became a battle for fifth.
Wagaman was up to second, Esh was running third and Dietz was fourth when the caution came out for Forsythe as he fell off the pace. The caution erased a 5.970 second lead for Dietrich.
Danny, Wagaman, Esh, Dietz and Rahmer made up the top five for the restart. Danny had a solid restart and Dietz went to the outside of Esh for third. Rahmer followed and it was nearly a three-wide battle for position down the front stretch. Dietz got under Wagaman for second but Troy held the spot by .001 seconds at the line. Wagaman, Dietz and Rahmer were under a blanket battling for second. Dietz had the spot with seven laps to go with Wagaman right behind him. Danny entered lapped traffic again with three laps to go with his lead back up to 4.1 seconds.
Danny got to the checkered flag 2.844 seconds ahead of Dietz. Wagaman crossed the line third and Freddie was fourth. Esh completed the top five.
Chase Gutshall Scores First Career 358 Sprint Win
Before the start of the feature, the B-main winner, Tyler Ulrich scratched, which meant the first alternate, Steven Downs would start the feature from the rear.
Chase Gutshall and Wyatt Hinkle started the 20-lap feature on the front row with Gutshall leading the field into turn 1. There was a yellow on the start when Brady Dillon stopped on the front stretch.
The field lined up for a complete restart. Kyle Spence got up to second on the start, but the yellow flag flew again before a lap was completed. This time Chad Criswell sat stopped in turn 4.
The third time was the charm as Gutshall once again took the lead as a three-wide battle between Scott Fisher, Kyle Spence and Hinkle waged. Spence had the spot as Fisher raced wheel-to-wheel with him.
Frankie Herr was defending fifth from Logan Rumsey and Doug Hammaker was up to seventh getting by Cody Fletcher at the line on lap 7. Hammaker was all over Rumsey for sixth and Herr caught Hinkle to challenge for fourth.
Gutshall was closing in on lapped traffic at the halfway point as Spence was reeling him in. Hammaker got by Rumsey for sixth and Herr took fourth from Hinkle. Spence was on Gutshall’s bumper as they raced through lapped traffic.
Gutshall scored his first career 358 sprint car feature win by .56 seconds over Spence. Fisher crossed the line third and Herr was fourth. Hammaker completed the top five.
