For the first time this season, Danny bent a top wing on the Gary Kauffman owned #48 sprinter. Danny got upside down during the feature at Williams Grove and was credited with 23rd.
Back in action Saturday at Lincoln Speedway, Danny turned in another good run coming from 12th to third at the checkered flag.
Danny and the GKR team will hit the road for the next two weeks racing with the World of Outlaws in the Iron 55 in Pevely, MO before heading to Knoxville, Iowa for the Knoxville Nationals.

OUTLAWS BRING A CLOSE RUNNER-UP AND A LOT OF PASSING!

The GKR Team had a busy week with the World of Outlaws beginning Tuesday in the Don Martin Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway.
Danny would finish 15th in the first of two 30 lap features.
With the lead lap cars inverted for race two, Danny led the first 10 laps before yielding the top spot and eventually finished in the runner-up spot.
The Outlaws were back at Lincoln Speedway Thursday night as Danny missed the heat race inversion by one spot. He qualified via his heat and then started 17th in the A-Main. He would do what he does best in the Pigeon Hills-pass cars- driving to fifth at the checkered flag.
Timing 30th in Friday night’s Summer Nationals prelim at Williams Grove, Danny was never able to rebound and failed to qualify for the feature event.
Obviously frustrated with the week, DD and company rolled out the Weikert Livestock 29 car for Saturday night action at Williams Grove. But it started bad again, timing 41st out of 44 cars. But Danny was up on the wheel the remainder of the night, blasting from 11th to transfer in his heat race. Then, waiting out a three hour rain delay, Danny started dead last (24th) in the Summer Nationals and turned in an impressive run up to the ninth spot at the checkered flag on the fast and tacky speedway.

It was another weekend on the road for Danny and the Gary Kauffman owned racing team as they hit the Buckeye State for some Kings Royal action at Eldora Speedway.
Unfortunately some motor issues hindered the team all weekend, resulting in two DNQ’s for the 48 car in Ohio.
