NEWBERRYTOWN: Danny Dietrich called his shot on Twitter earlier in the week. The message was clear. Not only did Dietrich predict a win over the upcoming three-race weekend. He also had some encouraging words about his team: "Stay Hungry." Two out of three isn't bad. Dietrich's thirst for winning didn't stop at one victory. He made it back-to-back scores, capping off his central Pennsylvania march with an impressive win in the 25-lap Fall Classic at Susquehanna Speedway Park. The Gettysburg driver banked $4,000 at Lincoln Saturday night and added another $3,500 check on Sunday.

"Setup and a gas man," Dietrich said. "We worked on some things, setups this week, and went back to our old notes. "We regrouped. We did some research, called Maxim and Pro and some of my friends and came up with our own setups." Good call.

It didn't look like Dietrich had much early. He was pinned behind leader Greg Hodnett and runner-up Freddie Rahmer and wasn't making much progress.

They were even both owned and operated by members of the Kreitzer family at one time or another. Silver Spring Speedway owner's Will Kreitzer owned and operated Susquehanna for two years (1969 & 1970) and his son Alan did the same from 1990 to 1992.
