Danny Dietrich raced to his third Lincoln Speedway sprint-car win of the season on Saturday evening.
Dietrich's win was worth $3,200.
Pole-sitter Mike Bittinger led the first lap of the 30-lap sprint-car feature before fourth-starter Freddie Rahmer took over the top spot. It appeared as if the teenager was on his way to his first career victory, but Dietrich had other ideas. Dietrich had started 11th and was working his way to the front. It wasn't until the 23rd lap, in heavy lapped traffic, that Dietrich was able to take the lead from the son of the speedway's all-time career winner.
From that point, Dietrich went on to score the victory, with Rahmer second. Bittinger finished third, with Robbie Kendall and Lewisberry's Kyle Moody in the top five. Jim Siegel finished sixth, with Gerard McIntyre Jr., Alan Krimes, York's Glenndon Forsythe and Brian Montieth in the top 10. Krimes and Montieth each had to come from the back after separate spins on the seventh and eighth laps.
Alex Bright completed a sweep of the ARDC Midget group's 75th anniversary weekend by copping that group's 25-lap feature. Bright came from the sixth starting spot to take the lead from Steve Buckwalter in a three-wide move on a 20th-lap restart. Buckwalter finished second, followed by series point leader Steve Drevicki, Nick Wean and Brent Arndt.
