Newberrytown, PA (September 21, 2014) – Gettysburg's Danny Dietrich won his first SSP 410 Sprint Carl feature race of the season at the Susquehanna Speedway Park on Sunday Night. Curt Michael of Ocean View, Delaware bested the field in the 358/360 Sprint Car Challenge race presented by www.shetronequipment.com and Newville Construction Services. Zach Overmiller and Mike Zelionis each took victories in the two 8-lap Sidewinder Sprint Car features.

In the 25-lap 410 Sprint Car feature event, Greg Hodnett took the early lead over Freddie Rahmer. Rahmer stayed close and within striking distance as the duo entered lapped traffic midway through the race. A caution on lap 13 closed up the field and gave Hodnett smooth waters in front of him.

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.

Both tracks have a long history of great racing and could be considered "sister tracks" as they ran many of the same divisions throughout the years. 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. Today, Silver Spring Speedway no longer exists however many of its drivers now call Susquehanna Speedway Park home.

It hasn't been an easy road. Barger as been dabbling in full-blown Sprint Car racing off and on for a few seasons. Coming into the 2014 campaign, he decided to make the leap full time and see what happens. Barger has been close to sitting on the frontstretch twice at Selinsgrove and once at Williams Grove. He's flirted with Victory Lane, and finally, he got it done Sunday night at Susquehanna Speedway Park.

The Montrose, N.Y., driver won a spirited and tight battle with Aaron Ott and Austin Hogue to capture the 25-lap main at the Newberrytown oval. Barger's first triumph in a 410 Sprint Car was worth a nice $3,500 Father's Day payday.
