GETTYSBURG, PA (February 26, 2017) – “Double-D” Danny Dietrich not only outlasted the competition during Lincoln Speedway’s season opener, but he also outlasted Mother Nature; capturing the $4,000-to-win, Icebreaker 30 main event on Saturday, February 25, despite a major weather interruption.
The win, the 32nd of Dietrich’s career at the “Fabulous” Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pennsylvania, took shape nearly five hours after his qualifying heat race. The 2:00pm program, halted at 2:20pm, was delayed due to severe-level wind, rain and hail that all started at the beginning of heat race three. Eventually, the severe weather would pass and the show would continue.
“I want to thank Lincoln Speedway for holding out and getting that program in, but I want to especially thank the fans for staying strong and sticking things out,” Danny Dietrich explained. “The fans are the most important part of our sport. We have an amazing fanbase out here in Central Pennsylvania. After what we went through on Saturday, I’m pretty sure they would sit and wait through anything.”
