Week 4 Brings A 4th Place Finish For Dan Green And The Amsoil #46 NASCAR Dirt Late Model! (Cathy Green photo)

Coatesville, PAApril 30, 2016 – After the great run last week, the G & H Motorsports team stayed optimistic, spent a good week in the shop and the #46 Amsoil Grandview Speedway Late Model was ready to challenge the other drivers in the BRC division.
Heat Race
Dan lined up in the 5th spot in the second 8 lap heat race. The green came out and the outside lane seemed to be better and unfortunately Dan was on the inside. Last week’s feature winner, Chuck Schutz #1 and Lou Egrie Sr got by Dan before Dan could pass Dirk Rimrott #2D and Joe "Geezer" Fanelli #22. On lap 6 contact between Dan and Randy Stoudt #NINE had Stoudt spinning in turn three. The race went green the rest of the way as Dan crossed the line in 5th.
Crew Goes To Work
With little time between the heat races and the Late Model feature the crew went to work to get the car ready. Scott Green, Cathy Green, Debbie Dutter, Michael Wynne, Jim Alexander, Jennifer O’Shea and Brett Higginbotham made the changes and had Dan on the track for the feature.
Feature Event
Starting 6th in the 25 lap main event for the Late Models, Dan fell to 7th on lap two and followed the #3 of Ron Kline waiting for an opening to get by. Lap 13 saw Dan take 6th and lap 22 had him move into 5th after second place runner Drew Weiser #19 pull off with motor problems under caution. The rest of the way went green and Dan took 4th from Bill Henning #80 on the last lap. The 4th place finish moved Dan into 7th in season long driver points. The team would like to congratulate Brian Shuey #177 for his second win of the season.

For Immediate Release
Contact: Shawn T. Wood, shawn@thedirttrackchannel.com
Track: 570-295-7715

April 29, 2016

MINERSVILLE – Those pesky April showers that bring May flowers found northeastern Pennsylvania on Friday and along with an unfavorable weather forecast, Big Diamond Speedway promoter Jake Smulley has cancelled tonight’s racing card.

The track was able to get in several events in April as the CJ’s Tire & Automotive Services 358 modified division had three different winners in as many races while the U.S.S. Achey sportsman division was dominated by Brandon Grosso who won three of the four events.
Several different drivers visited victory lane in both the Savage 61 roadrunners and the No Sweat Service Group street stock divisions in April. The stock cars once again provided side-by-side action for the fans.

The track will welcome two tour series in the month of May.

Brett Deyo’s Short Track Super Series arrives on Tuesday, May 10, for the Anthracite Assault and the American Racing Drivers Club midgets will make their first appearance of the season on Friday, May 13.

The first race of the month takes place on the 6th with a four-division show of 358 modifieds, sportsman, roadrunners and street stocks.

The STSS race is a 50-lapper for the combined North and South regions on May 10 and pays $5,000 to win and $400 to take the green. There is a special start time of 7:45 p.m. for the race on May 10. The race will carry a rain date of May 17.

The sportsman portion of the racing card will be the first race in the seven-event STSS Open Sportsman series. The 25-lap feature pays $1,000 to win and $125 to take the green.  Also on the card that night will be the 600 modifieds.

On Friday, May 13, the ARDC midgets will join the 358 modifieds, roadrunners and vintage cars for a four-division show whle the Red White and Blue Auto sportsman challenge and Kim’s Kreations Mechanics race highlights the May 20 card. There will be no 358 modifieds that night.

The month wraps up on Friday, May 27 with the Mark’s Service Center Night; Gone but not forgotten memorial race. The vintage cars will join the 358 modifieds, sportsman and roadrunners that evening.
