Danny Dietrich Tops Lincoln Speedway’s Ice Breaker 30
February 20th, 2020 by Wade Huisman
Danny Dietrich raced to his second career Ice Breaker 30 410 sprint victory in front of a standing-room-only crowd on Saturday afternoon at Lincoln Speedway.
Dietrich’s $4,000 win was his first of the season and the 47th Lincoln win of his career.
Second-starting Ryan Smith grabbed the early race lead from pole-sitter Glenndon Forsythe, of York. With Smith holding the early lead, Dietrich worked on Forsythe for second from his third-starting spot. Once by Forsythe, Dietrich set chase for Smith and took over the top spot on the 12th lap. Three laps later, Smith spun into the first-turn wall, ending his day.
From that point on, Dietrich held the lead at the Pigeon Hill oval, although at times it was a slim one. Local World of Outlaws driver, Hanover’s Logan Schuchart, won a spirited battle with Freddie Rahmer for the second spot. Schuchart had started fourth, while Rahmer started eighth.
