Dan Green’s Hot Rod Tracker #46 Gets On Track After A Few Weeks Off! (SDS Photo)

Coatesville, PAMay 28, 2016 –Hot, Sunny, Saturday makes a race team happy! After three straight weeks of rainouts the G& H Motorsports team was ready to have a good night of racing at Grandview Speedway. With the Hot Rod Tracker NASCAR BRC Dirt Late Model #46 loaded in the trailer, the team headed to the track in the late afternoon. With a quick stop at Little Anthony’s Pizza and Grille to pick up a hoagie try for dinner we made it to the track to set up the car and sell the new Dan Green #46 T-shirts, hoodies and hats!
Heat Race
Dan was scheduled to start the 8 lap heat race in 6th but 1st place starter #00 of Eric Hoch first chose to start in the rear then chose to let 4th place starter Chuck Schutz take over the driving of the #00 after his #1 machine developed engine issues in warm-ups. That put Dan in 4th for the start of the race. The green flag was thrown and Dan was passed by Cory Merkel #16 and on lap 4 while battling Devin Fry #62F, Dan tagged the inside yuke tire. The good thing was Dan hit the tire square so the only real damage was the front bumper with no harm to the front suspension.
Team goes to work
As the tow truck brought the #46 to the pit area Scott Green, Jim Alexander, Phil Jelke, Michael Wynne, Debbie Dutter, Cathy Green and Brett Higginbotham started getting ready to fix the Scott Select NASCAR BRC Late Model. The team worked together and had the car ready for the feature well before they were called to get lined up over the pit speakers. The team would like to thank the other late model teams that offered help and/or acknowledged how well the team did with getting the car ready for the feature.
Feature Event
The DNF in the heat race had Dan starting 14th in the 25 lap feature event. At the drop of the green racing was immediately intense and Lou Egrie Jr. ended up hitting the outside wall, then came down across the track in front of Dan who made every effort to miss the #4e but had nowhere to go and they made contact. The red came out to tend to a shaken Egrie Jr. After the caution came back out Dan made a quick pit stop to straighten out some of the body work from contact with Egrie Jr. Restarting in the rear Dan fought an ill handling car and after a few more cautions for other accidents Dan was able to take home a 7th place finish. The ill handling came from the team going too far with the adjustments that were made to the car for the feature. Sometimes you hit on the set-ups and sometimes you just miss it. We missed it. The top ten finish had Dan move from 7th to 4th in points as some of the competitors that were ahead of Dan at the beginning of the night had trouble in the feature. Congratulations to Bryan Sipe #33s for his first win of the year and his second career win at Grandview Speedway.
Get Well Wishes
G & H Motorsports would like to send out Get Well wishes to Sean Merkel #118 who had a health issue with his eye that will have him missing a few weeks of racing and also to Lou Egrie Jr #4e who ended up with a mild concussion from hitting the outside wall. Wayne Pfeil #72 damaged his car Wednesday night at a test and tune at another track and was unfortunately unable to get it repaired for Saturday night.
