On Saturday September 28, Skyline Speedway was hosting their 30th annual Harvest 50. The Harvest 50 is a well known event that draws in top drivers in all classes and wraps up points for the drivers in the AMRA Octane Modified division. About 20 Sprint, 43 Late Model and 50 Modified drivers were registered for the night. Our pill draw put us 18th driver in line to qualifying and Dan ended up 7th fastest. There were five fully packed heats for the Modifieds and we were put in the 2nd heat where we finished 2nd. We transferred right to the feature which gave Dan time to think and make adjustments. "Right now we have a 4th to 7th place car, the set up we have will not win us the race" Dan claimed. Feature time came and Dan started 7th. Right off the start Dan made the right choice and stuck to the bottom line and managed to get by 3 cars. He then decided to run the high line and got by another 2 cars. Caution flag came and Dan and Jeremy Berwanger (Modified fastest qualifier) found themselves battling immediately as the green flag flew. Berwanger was running the bottom and Dan stuck to the top, racing through lap traffic, they switched positions back and forth. White flag came out and it was nose and nose close, both charging out of corner 4, Dan had just a little faster run and came through the checkered of the 30 lap race and captured himself a feature win! Both Dan and Berwanger put on a great show!
Thank you sponsors, crew and fans.
