GETTYSBURG, Pa. – In an attempt to win in Iowa and Pennsylvania in the same weekend, Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing will begin the month of May in a big way.
Dietrich will first joini the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series at Knoxville (Iowa) Raceway on Friday, May 8, followed by the Posse Unleashed program at Selinsgrove (Pa.) Speedway on Saturday, May 9.
Fans of Dietrich should not be surprised by the team’s plan to complete a near-2000 mile round trip, as they have done so before.
“This is no issue,” Dietrich said. “We raced at Port Royal on a Saturday and made it to Knoxville for the Capitani Classic the next night, so this won’t be much different. We just want to race, so we’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen. There are a lot of people who help make this possible.
“Our partners deserve to be seen. This is the only way to make that happen.”
The weekend carries a $14,000 potential for the Lincoln Speedway Icebreaker winner, as the World of Outlaws program at Knoxville awards a $10,000 top prize and Selinsgrove’s Posse Unleashed carries a $4,000 winner’s share.
Although no fans will be permitted to attend, both events will be broadcast live via pay-per-view broadcast streams.
