Coatesville, PA – July 23, 2016 – The weather outside was frightful but it was because the temperature was hot and humid at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville PA. Dan Green and the G & H Motorsports team had plenty of water in the cooler to stay hydrated and the track offered water to the drivers. The air conditioned pit office was available for anyone in the pits to step into if needed to cool off. The Rodgers family and race officials were very aware of the dangers in the heat and took every precaution to help the teams. Hats off to them for their concern and awareness!
Dan was scheduled to start 4th in the 2nd 8 lap heat race but pole starter, Chris Wojnor #81 choose to start in the rear putting Dan 3rd. The green flag flew and Dan followed Joe “Geezer” Fanelli #22 into turn one as Byron Sipe #33s took the lead. On lap 2 Chuck Schutz #1 got underneath Dan but pushed up the track in turns 3 and 4 allowing Dan to get back under and take the spot back. The race went green the entire way as Dan finished 3rd with a broken right rear shock mount.
Team Fixes Car
Dan and part of the crew went to work to fix the broken shock mount and checked for any suspension damage that it may have caused. The rest of the crew did their part to prepare the SquireSide Café #46 for the 25 lap feature with fuel, tires and many other things that are done each race night.
Dan was scheduled to start 8th in the main event but Drew Weisser #19 had engine issues and was scratched from the race while Wojnor #81 elected to start in the rear of the field. This put Dan in the 6th starting position. The first try at going green was called back as Fanelli spun in turn two. The next caution came out for Dan as he spun in turn three. With Dan in the back and most of the feature left to run Dan picked his way back into the top ten as the #46 crossed the finish line in 7th. Dan sits in 6th spot in driver’s points for this season.
Brian Shuey #177 picked up his 4th win of the year as its either win or go home as his team has been side-lined after warm-ups the last two weeks with motor issues. Frank Cozze #4 picked up his third of the year in the T.P. Trailers Modifieds and Mike Lisowski #15 got his second Sportsman Feature win of 2016.
Dan will race July 30, 2016 for a 4 class night at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville PA featuring the T.P. Trailers Modifieds, BRC Late Models, Sportsmans and the Blast from The Past Vintage Car Club. Adult admission is $15 while youngsters 11 and under are free.
