Bechtelsville, PA – Saturday was a beautiful day for racing and the G & H Motorsports team was ready to make up for a disappointing race last week. We loaded up the SquireSide CAFE #46 and headed to Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville PA. The night was sponsored by Hennings Trains and there was a back to school give-a-way, by Geiswite Creations, to kids in attendance that G & H Motorsports was a part of.
Dan was scheduled to start 7th in the first 8 lap heat race for the NASCAR BRC Late Models but Sean Horning #8m chose to start in the rear so this put Dan in 6th. With the race going green the entire distance Dan was not able to move forward and finished in the 7th spot.
Getting the LAZER X Chassis #46 ready for the feature were G & H Motorsports team members Scott Green, Cathy Green, Debbie Dutter, Bob Higginbotham, Jacky Higginbotham, Kati Horne and Brett Higginbotham. Even with having surgery on Tuesday for his broken leg, Dan's Uncle Jim Alexander was in the pits at the team trailer supporting the other team members.
Starting 15th in the 25 lap feature event, Dan drove steady for the first few laps and was slowing moving forward but Rick Todorow #93 spun in front of him in turn 3 and with nowhere to go Dan hit nose to nose with the #93. With a quick stop in the pits for the crew to make sure there was clearance for all the tires Dan made it back on track before the green flag came back out. Though the damage was good enough to continue it wasn't good enough for Dan to run at speed to move through the field, he held his line and ran at the back until he was put a lap down by the leaders. At the next caution Dan pulled back into the pits done for the night. With a 13th place finish, and loss of valuable points Dan dropped to 6th in the season long point standings. With only 3 races left the team hopes for better results in those races.
Next event for the G & H Motorsports team is Saturday August 22, 2015 at The Parkesburg Point Youth Center for 1 PM to 3 PM for a Meet and Greet for sponsor, Farmer's Insurance the Book Agency, The Point is located at 700 Main Street Parkesburg, PA 19365. Then the team will travel to Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, PA as racing starts at 7:30 PM.
