ABBOTTSTOWN, PA - A dominating performace by David Gravel led him to score his sixth World of Outlaws Craftsman® Sprint Car Series win on Wedenesday night in the Gettysburg Clash at Lincoln Speedway as he led all 35 laps in the feature/

He finished 6.5 seconds ahead of runner-up Daryn Pittman.

"World of Outlaws guys do not win many Outlaw shows in PA, so to win here is great, at a track that I haven't really been good at in the past. To do that is awesome, to get our sixth win is awesome," Gravel said."You never know when your next win will be and it's been a couple weeks, so it's good to get another one and keep clicking them off. Hopefully this momentum carries on to Williams Grove."
 
Gravel jumped into the lead from his pole position starting spot and would work his way through lapped traffic on lap 10 as the race was stopped just once on lap 2 when Freddie Rahmer spun in Turn 2.

Speedway points leader Danny Dietrich worked his way into the runner-up spot on lap 17 but was unable to get lapped traffic to work in his favor.


"I got to second and couldn't get any help at all from lapped cars," Dietrich said. "It's unfortunate because I thought we were fast enough to run with Gravel, but never got the opportunity."
 
Dietrich lost second on the final lap when he tried to move past a lapped car in Turn 2 but pusehd up the track allowing Pittman to slide by and take the spoy.
 
"I was just trying to make something happen," Dietrich said of his last lap move. "I felt like if I couldn't get by the lapped cars, I was going to get passed anyways. I should have just probably settled in, but that's hard to do when you're running second for a World of Outlaws win."
 
"Lapped traffic was hairy," echoed Pittman. "I don't know that they were really doing anything wrong, but they were just racing hard side-by-side and using up the whole track. Dietrich kind of got held up behind one of them and gave me a run to get back by him."
 
Donny Schatz raced from the 15th to finish fourth while Brian Montieth came from 20th to round out the top five.
 
The World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series remains in Central Pennsylvania entering the weekend for the Morgan Cup at Williams Grove Speedway on May 19 and 20.
