Hot Night For Dan Green And The Scott Chevrolet #46! (SDS Photo)

Bechtelsville, PA – Saturday means race day to Dan Green and the G & H Motorsports Team, this Saturday meant that the team headed north a little earlier for the Low Down and Dirty Meet and Greet at Grandview Speedway. As always the team had plenty to hand out and opportunities for fans to save money. Two scooters were given away, one to Austin Derstine and the second one to Madi, they were two of the many fans that signed up for free. Mike Book of Farmer’s Insurance was there to sign up fans to get a free quote, in doing so fans will receive a $10 Wawa Gift card.
After the Meet and Greet the team went back to the pits and got the car ready for the warm-ups, Dan went out and ran the three laps and the car wasn’t right. A cap for the fuel line came off and fuel poured onto the hot engine and when Dan came back into the pits the car had flames coming from it. With help from MANY crew members close by, the flames were put out with water and after checking everything, fixing the fuel problem and installing a new air cleaner, the Hot Rod Processing #46 was ready for the Heat race.
Lining up 6th in the second 8 lap heat race, Dan took the green and quickly got by #93 Rick Todorow, #16 Cory Merkel and #92 Dirk Rimrott to run 3rd when the 1st lap was completed. Dan followed #80 Bill Henning and #0 Kyle Merkel until lap 6 when C. Merkel got back by Dan. After a quick caution the race went back green for the last two laps as Dan finished 4th.
Scott Green, Cathy Green, Debbie Dutter, Bob Higginbotham, Jacky Higginbotham, Kati Horne and Brett Higginbotham changed a few things on the SquireSide CAFE #46, having to guess what the track would be like at the end of the night as the Late Models normally run earlier. Jim Alexander was also there along with special guest Desiree Neff who helped the team.
The Superior Racing Products Night Presented by Bernheisel Race Cars 30 lap feature was the last event of the evening and Dan started in the 9th spot. The green flag was thrown and as the field got to turn two, Henning spun and collected C. Merkel, Todorow, S. Merkel and Dan. With very little damage Dan restarted 16th for the restart, after one more try at a start the feature went green. Dan was able to drive through the field and at a lap 7 caution he was 5th. After the 1st lap is completed in the Late Model class all other restarts are single file so Dan was 5th in line as the green came back out. Two laps later the caution was waving again then the race went green for the last 21 laps and with two laps to go Dan got by K. Merkel to grab the 4th spot and took the checkered right behind Fleming. With the 4th place finish and Kory Fleming #704 finishing one spot in front of the Ken’s Towing #46, Dan is 7 points out of 5th in the point standings with one race left.
Next event for the G & H Motorsports team is Saturday September 5, 2015 at Grandview Speedway for the last points race of the 2015 season!
