HARTFORD, Ohio – To say Danny Dietrich wasn’t enjoying the 42nd Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek is a huge understatement. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania resident missed the feature the first two nights, came a very close second the third, crashed the fourth night, took the fifth night to regroup, and came back strong Wednesday at Sharon Speedway, leading all 30 caution-free laps for the $5,000 victory.

Dietrich became the fifth different winner in five nights during the Ti-22 Performance FAST On Dirt Series sanctioned event. It was his second career victory at Sharon. Local favorite Dale Blaney charged from sixth to second with Brandon Spithaler, Dave Blaney (from 10th) and current speedweek point leader Cap Henry rounding out the top five.

“I just felt that consistent laps and no mistakes were the key to staying out front. I really didn’t feel that pounding the fence down was a smart way to try and race. Moving around and keeping an eye on racing grooves was very important. I love Sharon and I love coming to Ohio speedweek. This has been a tough so this is a really feel good moment for our race team. It’s tough with 50 cars every night,” said Dietrich beside his Weikert’s Livestock, Derek Snyder Self-made Racing, RV 4WD & Performance, York Excavating, Sandoes Fruit Market backed #48.

The 42nd Annual Ohio Sprint Speedweek will continue at Muskingum County Speedway for night #7 of the nine night event.
