- Dietrich earned $4,000 for his season-opening triumph.
- The race attracted a standing-room-only crowd to the Pigeon Hills oval.
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.
Rahmer finished third ahead of his brother, Brandon Rahmer, with Dillsburg’s Anthony Macri coming from the 10th starting spot for fifth. Rounding out the top 10 were Forsythe, Lewisberry’s Kyle Moody, Hanover’s Tim Wagaman, Jim Siegel and the race’s hard-charger, Tony Fiore, who came from 21st to 10th.
