Danny Dietrich

Danny Dietrich raced to his fourth Lincoln Speedway win of the season on Saturday evening. 

Dietrich collected $4,000 for his 59th career triumph at the Adams County track.

Jordan Givler took the early lead in the 30-lap 410 sprint feature from the outside of the front row. He held the top spot until Dietrich was able to work his way forward from the eighth starting spot and take over the lead on the 11th lap. Givler was later involved in a tangle.

Dietrich led the rest of the way despite some late-race pressure from seventh-starter Devon Borden, who finished second. Freddie Rahmer came from 10th to finish third. Hanover’s Troy Wagaman Jr. and the winner’s brother, Billy Dietrich, completed the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Hanover’s Dylan Norris, Thomasville’s Chad Trout, Spring Grove’s Tim Glatfelter, Jim Siegel and York’s Chase Dietz.

Frankie Herr was credited with leading all 20 laps of the 358 sprint feature for the win. Herr did get a break on the 14th lap. Steve Owings had passed Herr for the lead, but mechanical failure on third-place running Wyatt Hinkle caused a caution flag before the lap was completed. 

Owings finished second, with Cody Fletcher, York’s Jeff Rohrbaugh and Nash Ely in the top five. Rounding out the top 10 were Wellsville’s Chris Frank, York’s Brett Strickler, Justin Foster, Matt Findley and Kyle Denmyer.
