Darrah Wins Second Silver Cup Feature Event


Outlaw Cody Darrah battles the Posse’s Danny Dietrich to win the second feature of the night

SARVER, Pa. — July 15, 2014 — Cody Darrah won the second feature of the night, his first win at Lernerville and his second Outlaws win of the season. Darrah finished the first feature in 17th and through the inversion, started from the pole for the second.

As the green flag flew, the Pennsylvania Posse’s Danny Dietrich jumped out to an early lead. For the first ten laps, Darrah looked for a way around Dietrich in Ollie’s Bargain Outlet car and finally found it. Darrah took the lead on lap 11 and never looked back. As the two battled through lapped cars, Dietrich looked for opportunities and closed the gap several times, but was not able to make a move.

“[Getting the win] feels awesome,” Darrah said. “The way this race plays out doing the full invert, that’s the biggest thing that gets you into that second race to get you up front. I’d like to say I was sandbagging the first one but honestly I was racing as hard as I could for that last spot. We worked on our cars, we went off our teammates to capitalize on that front row spot.”

As the Outlaws continue their swing through Pennsylvania, the stiff competition presented by the Posse showed up Tuesday night at Lernerville. In addition to Dietrich, Tim Shaffer, a native of Aliquippa, Pa. finished third in the second feature.

The World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series continues its swing through Pennsylvania this week, stopping next at Lincoln Speedway on Thursday before two nights, Friday and Saturday, at Williams Grove Speedway for the Summer Nationals. After that, the Outlaws head to Lebanon Valley Speedway and Fulton Speedway in New York.
