Sporting the Bob Weikert Livestock #29 colors, Danny turned in an impressive run to score his first ever Port Royal Speedway feature win in Monday’s Labor Day Classic.
He started third and took the lead just past the midway point of the event and parked the familiar red white and blue colors on the Port Royal stage. It was the seventh win of the year for the Gary Kauffman owned team.
Friday night at Williams Grove, Danny was battling for the seventh spot when contact from another driver sent him into the frontstretch wall. He was paid for 18th.
The team missed the setup Saturday at Lincoln Speedway where he finished ninth and Sunday night’s Billy Kimmel Memorial at Williams Grove was rained out and rescheduled for Sept. 12.

BACK IN PA AND WINNING

After racing on the road for the past two weeks, Danny and the Gary Kauffman Racing team were back in PA over the weekend.
Friday night wasn’t what the team was hoping for at Williams Grove after hurting a motor during the first of the Twin 20s. He was credited with 21st and 24th place finishes.
But Saturday night at Lincoln Speedway, DD looked good in his run from his 11th starting spot to take the lead with six laps to go and went onto score his third track win of the year and sixth overall in the Sandoe’s Fruit Market No 48. It was also his 21st career track win.
Danny didn’t have much luck in Knoxville last weekend but it wasn’t a complete waste as Danny did qualify for Thursday night’s A-Main, where he started 13th and brought the Weikert Livestock #29 home in 10th spot. That put him deep in Saturday’s B-Main, where he placed 16th.
