GETTYSBURG, Pa. – Danny Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing have unveiled a schedule comprised of 110 nights of racing.

Of those 110 nights of racing, Dietrich and Gary Kauffman Racing plan to compete with the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions or World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Craftsman Sprint Car Series 45 times in 2019.

Dietrich, a 10-time winner during action in 2018, will launch the new year with a trip to Florida, where he will do battle with the All Stars and World of Outlaws during a combined eight events between Jan. 31 and Feb. 10.

The bulk of Dietrich’s schedule will begin at Lincoln Speedway on Feb. 23.

“It took some time to put this schedule together. As usual, we’ll be spending a lot of time in our own backyard, but we also plan to travel some,” Danny Dietrich said, driver of the Gary Kauffman Racing, Sweeney Cars, Pace Performance, Self Made, No. 48 sprint car. “A few things are going to be different, but it’s business as usual for us. We’re ready to get started.”

Continuing a recent tradition, perhaps the most grueling segment of Dietrich’s schedule is the middle section of June through the first week of July when the Gettysburg native will take on the first seven nights of Ohio Sprint Speedweek, followed by nine straight nights of Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek. Although not in consecutive fashion, only seven days separate his partial Ohio Sprint Speedweek schedule (June 14-20) from his Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek schedule (June 28-July 6).

Other major plans for Dietrich include revisiting Mansfield Motor Speedway for the $100,000-to-win Sprint Car World Championship, joining the All Star Circuit of Champions during a trio of New York stops in early June, entering a trio of 410/360 doubleheaders in Central Pennsylvania, and potentially revisiting The Dirt Track at Charlotte for the World Finals in early November. Dietrich will join the All Stars and World of Outlaws during all events in Central Pennsylvania.

“I can’t thank Gary Kauffman and everyone enough for making a schedule like this possible,” Dietrich continued. “We are lucky enough to be associated with a lot of great people, Derek (Snyder) from Sweeney and Pace included. We are excited to have him play a major role within our race team. I’m pumped to see what we can do.”
