Coatesville, PA – August 20, 2016 – A long week for the G & H Motorsports team paid off with a good day on Saturday as the team had a lot of work done on the Scott Select #46 to be ready for their race car show and racing later in the evening. The day started early as the team loaded the car in the trailer and headed to Scott Select Pre-Owned Cars in West Chester PA. Once there the team set-up and welcomed the other teams who brought their cars to the show. During the course of the day the drivers took turns in the Dunk Tank for fans to win a free oil change by Scott Select. After the show the Grandview Speedway teams headed to the track to get ready for the regular show starting at 7:30 PM.
Dan lined-up 4th in the first 8 lap heat race for the BRC Late Models. The race went non-stop as Dan battled Bill Henning #80 for third but was unable to get by and finished in the 4th spot at the checker. Ron Kline #3 won the first heat race and Joe “Geezer” Fanelli #22 won the second heat race.
The Late Models were called out to the track to compete in their 25 lap BRC feature event with Dan scheduled to start 6th. The cars were lined-up and the pace laps were complete and the green flag was thrown. Dan quickly got by Henning and Shaun Horning #8m before lap one was complete then passed Byron Sipe #33s before lap 2. Dan drove passed Fanelli on lap 3 and recorded the fastest lap of all the late models on lap 4 while running 2nd. Four time feature winner Brian Shuey #177 was leading as Dan stayed far enough behind to capitalize on any mistake that he may have made. Wayne Pfiel #72 was able to get to third spot and kept pressure on but Dan was able to hold him off lap after lap. The last 13 laps were very competitive but the positions didn’t change as Dan followed Shuey’s back bumper under the checker flag. The 2nd place finish catapulted Dan into 3rd place in drivers points battle from 5th.
Brian Shuey #177 picked up his 5th BRC Late Model win of the 2016 season. Craig VonDorhen #1C won his 100th career T.P. Trailers Modifieds Feature event in regular Saturday night shows, he started his winning ways in 1981. Paul Kline #1 won his 3rd of the year in the Sportsman Class.
Good To See
Lou Egrie and members of the #x4 team were in attendance watching and helping others at Grandview after their season was cut short from the accident that happened last week. Dave Ogin #31 was seen walking in the pits as he did not have his car at the track, he was second in driver points entering the night.
Dan and the Hot Rod Processing #46 will be in action next Saturday August 27 as there are only 2 races left in the Grandview Speedway Points. Racing starts at 7:30 PM with adult admission at $15 and kids 11 and under free!
