Coatesville, PA – June 22, 2017 – The excitement of the team heading into the 9th Annual Appalachian Mountain Speedweeks kept everyone on their toes working hard to keep Dan Green competitive in the new Super environment. The crew traveled to 5 of the 7 tracks in the series. We were able to step up and represent our sponsors in different areas and met a lot of racing fans along the way. The teams we raced with were some of the best Super Late Model teams in the Northeast.
Dan raced the #46 to a 25th overall finish against 86 other competitors in the series!
That is a definite success for a 1st year competitor in the series and also puts Dan and the car in a calendar for 2018!! That will be great exposure for all our sponsors!
Williams Grove Speedway, Friday June 9!
The Fast ½ mile of Williams Grove Speedway was the next stop for the AMSOIL #46 Super Late Model. The same format that was implemented for the AMS continued at Williams Grove as Dan Time Trialed with the group he ran his heat race with. Dan ran all 10 laps and got much needed track time in the car. Dan started 21st in the 24 car 40 lap Feature Event. During an early race caution Dan made a quick stop in the pits to make an adjustment to the air cleaner and returned to finish the race. After the race was finished the team found that the left side headers had cracked and needed to be replaced before the next race. Rick Eckert #7 won the Feature as Dan finished a respectable 17th in his first trip to the historic track. On a side note, Dan’s grandfather raced at Williams Grove over 50 years ago and it ended up being his favorite track.
Selinsgrove Speedway, Saturday June 10!
The G & H Motorsports team again had no garage to work on the ACE Hardware #46 as the team stayed at a family members house between Williams Grove and Selinsgrove to save time. The team parked at a mall and replaced the broken headers and went over the car to be race ready for the final AMS race at Selinsgrove Speedway. After warm-ups and a quick adjustment, the team was ready for Time Trials but it seems that the timing system wasn’t ready for the racing program. Plan “B” went into effect as the Late Model teams were lined up from the pill draw earlier in the day. Dan finished 7th in his heat and 7th in the B-Main just missing out on qualifying for the A-Main. Jeff Rine #2J drove to the victory and the AMS Championship, as we congratulate his team on a great Speedweeks!!
Thank you to the organizers, tracks and officials of the Appalachian Mountain Speedweeks it will be on our 2018 schedule for sure!!
Next Stop Georgetown Speedway!
Sunday July 2nd the G & H Motorsports team headed by Dan are off to Georgetown Speedway in Georgetown, Delaware for the ‘Independence Day Summer Classic’. Port Royal Speedway is next on Saturday July 8th and a quick turnaround for Bridgeport (NJ) Speedway on Tuesday July 11.
This past Saturday, Dan and a couple G & H Team members headed to Bernheisel Race Components in Jonestown, PA to finish and pick up the 2017 LAZER X Chassis that is replacing the one that was crashed at Port Royal a few weeks back. The team decided to change things up just a little by going from mostly white to mostly grey body with a black nose. It’s a sharp look and we cannot wait to see it on the track for the first time!
