Bechtelsville, PA – On Tuesday July 28, 2015 Grandview Speedway lost Modified driver Mike Bailey. As Mike was on the track getting ready to line-up for a special mid-week event he had a medical issue and passed away later that night. On Saturday night Grandview had a memorial for Mike as the Bailey's have been racing at the track since the 1970's, Mike was the son of Randy and was driving for his Uncle Dennis and Aunt Joanne this year, he was 39 years old.
The racing started after the ceremony concluded. Dan was in the second heat starting in the 7th position for 8 lap race. The race went non-stop as Dan moved forward and finished 4th at the checkered.
G & H Motorsports team members of Scott Green, Cathy Green, Debbie Dutter, Jesse Bivins, Bob Higginbotham and Brett Higginbotham prepared the Farmer's Insurance #46, as Jim Alexander was a spectator with a broken ankle suffered last Sunday July 26th. Get Well Soon Jim!
Starting 9th in the 25 Lap NASCAR BRC Late Model feature Dan took the green and quickly moved towards the front. At the first caution, on lap 4 Dan was running 4th. The restart had Dan follow Drew Weisser #19, Lou Egrie Jr #4e and Randy Stoudt #10 for several laps as the caution flag came out a couple times. Stoudt dropped out during a lap 6 caution with mechanical issues. Dan stayed in the 3rd spot until lap 15 when he was able to drive under Weisser for second. Dan ran second for 5 laps until last weeks winner and point leader Chuck Schultz #1 was able to get by him and then Egrie Jr to take the win and continue the point lead. Congratulations to Schultz for his 4th win of the season. Dan finished 3rd and continues to be 4th in points.
G & H Motorsports had a couple sponsors make an appearance to the track to watch Dan race during the night. Ed Mann and Mike Grogan from Hot Rod Processing and Linda and Dave Deeney from Linda's Hair Techniques all made the trip to Bechtelsville PA. We did hear that all had a great time and want to make a return trip as soon as they can.
