Coatesville, PA – August 27, 2016 – After last week’s good run Dan Green’s #46 NASCAR BRC Dirt Late Model was washed and gone over during the week to make sure everything was ready for Saturday night. The team loaded the car and headed to the track.
Before we get into the race info we want to welcome Bruce Rogers back to the track. Bruce is the track owner and he along with his wife Theresa were in a severe accident in late January. Bruce sustained major injuries and this weekend was his first time at the track this year. He was driven around the track at intermission and received a standing ovation from the fans and teams in attendance. Team #46 is proud to have been a part of the night he returned "home".
Scheduled 5th in the first heat Dan started 4th after polesitter Eric Hoch #00 chose to start in the rear. The green flag waved and Dan bobbled a little going into turn one and dropped back to 6th. With the race going green the 8 lap distance, Dan knew he wasn’t going to advance his positions so he tried different lines to see what worked best for the Linda’s Hair Techniques #46. The checker flew and Dan finished 6th.
The 25 lap Feature event started with Dan in 7th and he held a good line but was boxed in for a few laps that let a couple cars by. He was back as far as 9th when on a restart Steve Todorow #93 and Dan came together and a caution had to be re-thrown. Dan and Todorow were able to continue but both went to the rear of the field. Dan steadily passed cars coming from 11th to finish 8th at the checker. This helps keep Dan in 3rd place in driver points with one race to go.
Ron Kline #3 picked up his 3rd win in 4 weeks in the BRC Late Models. Duane Howard drove the Norm Hansell #357H to win the T.P. Trailers Modifieds Feature event. Ryan Lilick #142 won his 2nd of the year in the Sportsman Class. Dave Smith #2 and Ron Myers #18 won the Blast From The Past Vintage Car Club Features.
Championship Night at Grandview Speedway will be next Saturday September 3, 2016 as Dan tries to hold off the other competitors to finish 3rd or better on the final regular Saturday Show. It will be a 30 lap feature for the Late Models with admission for adults $15 and Kids 11 and under free.
Look here next week for information about Dan and the team continuing to race after the Grandview Season ends. We are looking at other tracks that have Late Models running into November.
