Bechtelsville, PA – Saturday started out to be a fun day at one of G & H Motorsports' sponsors as Little Anthony's Pizza and Grille in Honey Brook, PA hosted Dan Green and the #46 NASCAR BRC Dirt Late Model for a meet and greet event. It was a fun day as there was a steady stream of fans who stopped by to get a close up view of the car with plenty of kids having an opportunity to sit in the drivers seat. Congratulations to Anthony Hunt who won 2 general admission tickets to watch a race compliments of Grandview Speedway. The team would like to thank Dan Stanford and his staff for having us there.
With the show over it was off to Grandview Speedway for the nights racing events. Dan was scheduled to start 8th in the first 8 lap heat race for the late models. As the pole sitter, Shawn Horning #8M chose to start in the rear Dan moved to the 7th starting spot. After the green flag dropped Dan moved into 6th as he got by Joe “Geezer” Fanelli #22 and three laps later got by Lou Egrie Jr #4e to take 5th. As soon as Dan pasted Dave Ogin #31 for 4th he hit a slick spot on the track and was unable to keep the car from going around, the caution came out and he had to restart in 10th. With 2 laps left in the event Dan was able to pass, Horning, Devin Frey #F62 and Fanelli to finish in the 7th spot at the checkered.
G & H Motorsports team members of Jim Alexander, Cathy Green, Debbie Dutter, Jesse Bivins and Brett Higginbotham knew what to do to get the Hot Rod Processing #46 ready for the feature event.
The Atlas Paving 25 Lap NASCAR BRC Late Model feature lined-up with Dan starting 12th. The green flag was thrown and Dan made a steady run forward passing Cory Merkel #16 and Rick Todorow #93 and was in the process of passing Bill Henning #80 before a lap 4 caution. When the green came back out Dan drove to the inside of Henning and was going after Steve Gross #62 as Gross got loose and spun in front of him. With nowhere to go Dan was collected in the spin as other cars continued into Dan and the accident. Contact was made from Henning in the left rear and it caused the suspension to flip around and get locked in the wrong direction. The WIX Filter's #46 needed the hook and was finished for the night after 5 laps. With the early exit from the feature Dan was credited with a 17th place finish but was still able to keep his 4th place in the season long point standings. Congratulations to Chuck Schultz #1 for his 3rd win of the season as he continues to lead the points for the Late Models.
Next event for the G & H Motorsports team is Saturday August 1, 2015 at Grandview Speedway for the racing starting at 7 PM. On August 8, 2015 the team and Dan will be at Just Mom's Ice Cream and Grille, 1050 N Manor Rd, Honey Brook, PA for a meet and greet before heading to the races that night.
