Bechtelsville, PA – After last weeks rain-out the G & H Motorsports team was ready to tackle the high banks at Grandview Speedway this past Saturday. Just Mom's Ice Cream and Grille sent along awesome hot roast beef and cheese steaks for the team to eat before the racing program got started. The weather was perfect for Dan Green to get behind the wheel and compete with the other NASCAR BRC Late Model drivers.
Dan took the green in 7th spot in the first 8 lap heat race and quickly passed Kory Fleming #704 and Cory Merkel #16 in turn 4. Staying in the low lane, Dan was able to get by #ZT1 John Geisler in turns 1 and 2 and completed lap one in 4th position. Dan challenged Dave Ogin #31 for 3rd but that opportunity disappeared and Dan settle in and waited for another chance. The event went green the entire 8 laps and Dan finished in 4th.
Scott Green, Cathy Green, Todd Lapp, Liz Kulp, Debbie Dutter, Jim Alexander, Jacky Higginbotham, Bob Higginbotham, and Brett Higginbotham made the changes to the Scott Select #46 that were needed.
The 18 late models that were signed into the pits lined up for the 25 lap feature event with Dan in the 9th spot. At the drop of the green, Fleming and Rick Todorow #93 made contact which brought out the yellow, also involved was C. Merkel. The next attempt was much better as Dan was able to get around Ogin and Steve Gross #62 before lap one was completed. A few laps later Dan was able to get by Lou Egrie Jr #4e and Bill Henning #80 to run 3rd. Sean Merkel #118 and Chuck Schutz #1 were able to pass Dan to put him 5th. After a caution for Ogin, Dan was able to pass Steve Wilson #15 to run 4th. Right after completing lap 22 Dan drove into turn one just a little too hard and spun ending up on the inside of the track with some drivers doing some evasive maneuvers but others not so lucky with Wilson and Joe “Geezer” Fanelli #22 making contact. After the spin Dan tried to restart the motor but fuel was built up in the air cleaner igniting and catching it on fire. Dan quickly drove to the infield and turned off the car and got the air cleaner off the motor so it would not continue to burn. Dan was fine and the motor was fine but he was done for the night after a strong run in the Auman Photography #46. Dan was credited with finishing 10th and was able to hold on to 4th place in points, Dan also received a $50.00 gift certificate from Cargo Trailer Sales.
The NASCAR BRC Late Models along with the T.P. Trailers Modifieds and Sportsmans will be back at the track on Saturday May 30, 2015 starting at 7:30 PM. Dan Green will be wheeling the Farmer's Insurance #46, hoping to continue his good year as he is 4th in the season long point chase. Come out next Saturday and don't forget to stop back at the car after the races to pick up a hero card of Dan and ask how we can possibly save you money on your insurance.
