BACK IN PA AND WINNING

August 18th, 2014

by Brad Vores

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.

ON THE ROAD

The GKR #29 team left Central PA and headed on the road with the World of Outlaws over the weekend.
First stop was at Missouri’s I-55 Raceway for the Ironman 55.
Friday night, Danny finished 21st in the feature event.
Qualifying well for Saturday’s main event, Danny started 10th but a shock broke, causing him to spin and he was involved in a crash. He was credited with another 21st payday.
The team left MIssouri and arrived at Iowa’s Knoxville Raceway for Sunday night’s Capitani Classic.
With 71 cars signed in for action, Danny missed the heat race cutoff from time trials and would face an uphill battle from that point and never transfered into the feature.
The team will attempt to put the Weikerts Livestock colors back into the Knoxville Nationals as Danny attempts to qualify on Wednesday night.

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.
