Coatesville, PA – June 4, 2016 – With the threat of late day rain and each G & H Motorsports team member with a smart phone checking every weather app possible we loaded the Scott Select #46 NASCAR BRC Late Model up and headed to the track.
Scheduled to start 5th in the 1st
heat, Dan was lined up 4th when the polesitter elected to start in the
rear. The first green flag was a no go but the second one was good. Dan
didn’t have a great start as he dropped back to 6th as the first lap was
completed and with the race staying green the rest of the way Dan
Team goes to work
Scott Green, Jim Alexander, Michael
Wynne, Debbie Dutter, Cathy Green, Jennifer O’Shea and Brett
Higginbotham started getting the SquireSide CAFE #46 ready for the
feature. Some of the items that need checked is fuel, tires, suspension
bars and even Dan’s helmet. With a fine mist falling from the sky and
the track keeping things moving along Dan was ready and in the car
waiting for the Late Models to be called onto the track.
The 25 lap feature event was a roller
coaster type race as Dan started inside row 3 in 5th spot. Just like the
heat race the first green flag was a no go as Ron Kline #3 ended up
with some front end damage to bring out the caution. On the restart the
race went green until lap 3 when Shawn Horning #8m and Eric Hoch #00
came together in turn 4. Before lap 5 was completed, Dan got passed down
the back straight by Lou Egrie Sr #x4 and as Dan was trying to setup to
re-pass Egrie Sr he hit the right rear of the #x4 which sent Egrie Sr
spinning. Looking at the roof camera on Dan’s car it shows that Egrie Sr
clipped the inside berm causing him to slow for a split second and Dan
had no time to react causing the contact. Dan later said "I feel real
bad getting into Lou but I was right there and had no time to do
anything but make contact." Dan was sent to the rear for the contact for
the restart, Egrie Sr drove into the pits but with Grandview keeping
the show moving along was unable to make it back out before the green
flag waved. With racing resuming Dan worked his way through traffic and
several more cautions to finish in 6th. After the feature the team
discovered that the left rear shock had broken which hampered Dan’s
drive off the turns. With Dan’s consistent finishes he sits 2nd in
points 112 points behind Dave Ogin #31.
