Danny Grill Director of Competition for the
Wilton, Calif. (Oct. 27th)-- After the announcement last winter that 2006 would be the last year for the NASCAR AutoZone Elite Touring Divisions; many drivers, owners, crew members and fans were wondering what the hundreds of teams in these Divisions were going to do with their equipment......well on Saturday, October 21, 2006 SRL Director of Operations, Steve Fensler had a meeting with longtime NASCAR Southwest, Northwest and Winston West Director, Danny Grill to discuss the options and opportunities that could be offered by the SRL Late Model Series.
Danny Grill had kept in touch with many of the competitors and listened to what the teams and drivers would like to see and with the current configuration that Steve Fensler and Davey Hamilton have with their SRL Late Model Series it seems like a perfect opportunity. The SRL Late Model Series runs the same rules as the NASCAR Touring Divisions, so that provides the platform for which these teams can load up and go race.
"I went to Madera for the Championship Night for the SRL and not only did they have a great show, the competitors respected one another and had fun. That is the kind of atmosphere that racing should be", stated Danny Grill. Steve Fensler added, "That is exactly what we have worked for in this series, not only have a great division to race in, but have fun doing it!"
After several conversations with Steve Fensler and Davey Hamilton an offer came up for Danny Grill to be the Director of Competition for the SRL Late Model Series, for which he gladly accepted. With Danny’s reputation for fairness, understanding, relationships with track promoters, competitors and teams the positive merging from NASCAR to SRL will be an easy transition for these teams.
Steve and Danny have been in contact with several track promoters to put together a solid venue for their first year. With the help and cooperation of the track promoters, this will hopefully give the racers an opportunity to race in front of family, friends and fans.
