Top 5 Turnaround: Chaotic Travels Turn Into 5th Place Finish for Feathers

Port Royal, PA – July 16, 2024

Troubles on the racetrack are a part of the sport of racing. While this wasn’t a part of this past Saturday’s adventure to the ‘Speed Palace’ for the Feathers Racing crew, troubles on the way to the speedway put the 20 team in hurry up mode.

While enroute to the track, the team’s truck blew a left front tire and left the team stranded on the side of the highway waiting for help. Help came in the form of PA State Troopers Ebbert and Wirth, who assisted the team. The team also got some much needed roadside assistance from Port Royal Speedway sponsor, Zimmerman Truck Repair. The efforts of both groups helped the team to get back on the road and make it to the track, right as the call went out for engine heat for the sprint cars.

Troubles behind for the night, Trever and the Team Zero Race Cars, Fox Racing Shox, Leggett Engine Research, North River Farm, McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, George’s Used Cars, Martin’s Pumping, Feathers & Son’s Roofing, Coffelt Graphics, Shane McDowell Racing No. 20, were ready to get unloaded and on track. 

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  July 13, 2024

  • Class:  Super Late Model 
  • Location:  Port Royal Speedway, Port Royal, PA
  • Stats:  28 cars, Heat 3rd (3), A-main 5th (8)

TAKING A GUESS

With little time to unload the entire trailer and get the car ready for action, the team was forced to send the car out with a guess as to what the track was like. Getting about 15-20 minutes to get all of this done “definitely put us into rush mode. I made some changes during the week and figured I was going to be really tight, and it was” stated Feathers. The track seemed to hold a little more moisture throughout the entire night and this prompted some changes that helped the 20 car move forward. 

LIGHTING THE FIRE AFTER KICKING A TIRE

Rolling off 3rd in Heat 2, Trever and gang needed to maintain to make the handicap for the feature. An unfortunate first lap put the 20 car back to the 6th spot. This lit a fire under Feathers. “I put myself in a bad position twice…then I drove it as hard as I could back to 3rd” putting the TFR 20 into the 8th starting spot in the A-Main.

After showing a strong piece in the heat, the feature continued to show the progress that Trever and team were making. “I think we hit rock bottom enough with it that now I’m heading in the right direction” which showed in the 25 lap main event. The maneuverability of the No. 20 late model was evident as the feature went on. “We could move around and weren’t glued right to the bottom like we have been.” Trever was able to pilot the car past several drivers throughout the early and late stages of the race, ending a night that started out poorly, ending up in 5th.

THE WEEK AHEAD

Some much needed rest and recuperation is in order for the team this week, as Feathers will be taking the weekend off. “We just need to regroup, do some thinking and get back to winning form, so we can pay for some bills.” With the promise of increased speed, the Trever Feathers Racing team looks to get their first super late model win of the season. 

SEASON STATS

Super Late Model:  16 races, 0 wins, 7 top 5’s, 10 top 10’s, 13 top 15’s

Feathers Loses Promising Night to Engine Woes, Rebounds With Top Ten at Port Royal

Port Royal, PA – July 9, 2024

For the second week in a row, Trever Feathers’ weekend consisted of two super late model races.  The previous week he recorded two top-five finishes on trips to Delaware and Virginia.

This week it would be Maryland and Pennsylvania and Feathers was looking to continue his string of top finishes and hopefully secure his first super late model win of the season.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  July 3, 2024

  • Class:  Super Late Model 
  • Location:  Potomac Speedway, Mechanicsville, MD
  • Stats:  12 cars, Qualifying 2nd, Heat 1st (1), A-main DNF (2)

DATE:  July 6, 2024

  • Class:  Super Late Model 
  • Location:  Port Royal Speedway, Port Royal, PA
  • Stats:  22 cars, Heat 1st (6), A-main 8th (9)

29.99 LAPS SHORT

Wednesday night Feathers made the 125-mile tow from his race shop to Potomac Speedway in Mechanicsville, MD with the McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, George’s Used Cars, Martin’s Pumping, North River Farm, Feathers & Son’s Roofing, Leggett Engine Research, Coffelt Graphics, Shane McDowell Racing, Fox Racing Shox, Team Zero Race Cars super late model.

With his car still carrying the No.91 tribute wrap for his great uncle Jimmy Spence, Feathers laid down a lap that was just 0.003 seconds slower than quick timer Kenny Moreland.  The qualifying effort provided Feathers with the pole for heat race number two, which he commanded for the entire ten laps, winning by 4.656 seconds over Kyle Hardy.

Trever started outside the front row next to Moreland for the 30-lap feature but unfortunately the engine expired at the drop of the green, ending a promising night.

FIGHTING THE FORMAT

Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway heat lineups were set by random draw.  Feathers took the green for heat three from the 6th spot but wasted no time blasting to the front.  By the end of lap one, he was already in the runner-up spot and the next time by the line he was in command by nearly a full second.

Feathers went on to another convincing heat race win by 4.369 over Andrew Yoder.

With the feature lineup set by the handicap format, Feathers was assigned the 9th starting spot, essentially erasing his hard work in the heat race.  Forward progress was challenging for almost everyone inside the top ten during the 25-lap feature.  

Feathers was mired in the 9th spot for most of the event, then leveraged a late restart with five laps remaining to pick up one spot for an 8th-place finish.  

“We know the format deal but it’s still frustrating to have to start 9th behind cars we passed in the heat.”, Feathers commented.  

“The competition is so close, it’s tough to pass guys once let alone twice.  We just weren’t good enough tonight to overcome all the dirty air and a surface that was really tough to pass on.”

UP NEXT

Saturday night, July 13th, the team will return to Port Royal Speedway with the super late models.

SEASON STATS

Super Late Model:  15 races, 0 wins, 6 top 5’s, 9 top 10’s, 12 top 15’s 

Limited Late Model:  4 races, 1 win, 1 top 5’s, 3 top 10’s, 4 top 15’s

Starting Summer with Success: 1st Career Limited Win Highlights Month of June for Snook

Mifflintown, PA – June 30, 2024

by Derick Kriner / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Derick Kriner Photography

After a strong end to the month of May, Lane Snook and team were poised to make June a strong month. It didn’t take long for the speed of the months prior to translate into a front running performance. 

June 1st featured the Limited Late Models competing at the BAPS Motor Speedway in a dual feature program. In the make-up feature, Snook and the 23 team showed tremendous speed, making a run from 23rd to the 2nd position. A strong run in the regular program’s heat (6th-1st) put the 16 year-old in a good position for the feature. At the end of the caution-filled race, Snook stood victorious on the front stretch, scoring his first career win in the Limited Late Model division. 

“It was definitely cool to get my first win in a late model. It’s something that definitely helps build confidence in a sport that can destroy your confidence with a few bad runs.” Getting this first win seemed to have eased the young Mifflintown racer. “I’m glad it’s over with and hopefully it won’t be as stressful running up front.” Running up front would be something the 23 car would do in their next race at Port Royal. 

With a 2nd place finish in his heat and a 2nd place starting position, put the pressure on once again. After running the first half of the race in 2nd, Lane slid back slightly after a restart, still garnering a 6th place run on a slick Port Royal. “I made some gains learning a slick racetrack and it ended up a good night.” 

Taking the next week off to recuperate from illness, the team “thrashed to get the other car ready and decided to go to BAPS” after Selinsgrove canceled their double feature night. Another heat win showed promise for a good night, but the track unfortunately ran into a curfew issue right before the late model feature and will now have to make up the show. Lane will roll off 8th. 

With the Blue Collar Classic being canceled due to expected rain, Snook and team will have a week off to get ready for the makeup feature, plus a full regular show, at BAPS on July 6th. Lane and family will also have some time to enjoy the holiday and hopefully enjoy some good family time and food. Nothing says summertime, quite like getting to enjoy a picnic. “I would say BBQ ribs would probably be my favorite 4th of July picnic food.” And as summer progresses, the young-racer also likes to enjoy some things outside of racing, like going to the beach when time allows. Lane enjoys “riding waves on the boogie boards with friends” on vacations. 

Summer vacation will be filled with more racing for the late model team, as a potential five features outline their plans. July 6th will be at the aforementioned BAPS double program. Then the team plans to head to Port Royal the following week. A small track takes the team out of the regular ⅜ & ½ mile routine, as they take on Path Valley, which hosted the World of Outlaws series earlier in the year. Snook plans to end the month out with BAPS. 

All of this again wouldn’t be possible without all their great sponsors. Many thanks go out to all the individuals and families that help keep the dream alive and the 23 on the track and hopefully in victory lane more frequently.

Trever Feathers Rallies for Podium Finish in Backup Car at Hagerstown

Hagerstown, MD – June 11, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Jason Walls / WRT Speedwerx

One week ago, Trever Feathers noted that despite some quality runs in his black and blue No.20 Team Zero Chassis, he wasn’t satisfied.  The consistency he had in late 2023 with the same car was missing and he was struggling to dial it in on certain types of surfaces.  

It can be a slow and frustrating process for teams to work through the trial and error required to find the root of a handling problem.  Sometimes the schedule allows for that but sometimes it doesn’t, and sometimes it’s an expensive journey until you get to the solution.

The ace up his sleeve was a second Team Zero car, a 2016 chassis the team acquired with the intent to go Limited Late Model racing.  Feathers did that early in the season with the No.27 on the door and he won at Hagerstown Speedway in dominant fashion.

In recent weeks, Feathers opted to bolt a super late model engine into the No.27 and keep it handy as a backup car as he entered Appalachian Mountain Speed Week.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  June 8, 2024

  • Class:  Super Late Model 
  • Track:  Port Royal Speedway
  • City, State:   Port Royal, PA
  • Quick Stats:  45 cars, Group 1 Qualifying 11th, Heat 3rd (4), A-main 12th (17)

 

DATE:  June 9, 2024

  • Class:  Super Late Model 
  • Track:  Hagerstown Speedway
  • City, State:   Hagerstown, MD
  • Quick Stats:  36 cars, Group 1 Qualifying 12th, Heat 3rd (8), A-main 3rd (15)

 

NOT GREAT, NOT BAD

Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, Feathers strapped into his McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, George’s Used Cars, Martin’s Pumping, North River Farm, Feathers & Son’s Roofing, Leggett Engine Research, Coffelt Graphics, Shane McDowell Racing, Fox Racing Shox No.20 super late model and turned in a respectable 11th quickest lap in group one qualifying.  

With 45 cars on hand, the qualifying lap put Feathers in a decent position for the night.  From the 4th starting spot in his heat race, he muscled his way to a 3rd place finish to qualify for the finale.

Feathers started deep in the field, 17th to be exact, but churned his way forward to a 12th-place finish.  It was enough to earn Hard Charger.  

It wasn’t a bad night but it was short of expectations for the Winchester, VA native when it comes to Port Royal Speedway where he has had considerable success.  There was frustration in the TFR pit.  At that point, the mindset was they would skip Hagerstown and instead get to work in the shop to figure out the issue.

YEAH, THAT'S BETTER

Sunday morning in the shop the team got to work and felt they had identified the source of some of the issues, so Feathers and the team loaded up and headed to Hagerstown, MD for the next stop on the speed week schedule.  

Unfortunately, in hot laps Feathers experienced the same issue he has been having for a while.  The feel he was seeking still wasn’t there.  

The field of 36 cars was split into two groups for qualifying.  Feathers turned the first of his two laps but the issues were significant enough that he opted to pull in before completing the second lap.  He was scored 12th quickest in group one.

Tense team discussions led to the decision to turn the page.  The team pulled down the No.27 backup car.  They would get back to solving the No.20’s issue on another night when the stakes were not as high.  Shocks and springs were moved from the No.20 to the No.27 to get ready for the heat race.

The swap to the backup car meant Feathers relinquished his 5th starting spot in his heat and he would have to go from the rear (8th).  With only the top three transferring to the main event, his work was cut out for him.

One lap into the heat race, everyone with eyes on the track knew Feathers had made the right choice.  He blasted from 8th to 3rd on the opening lap and never looked back, holding on to the spot to put himself and his team in the show.

Feathers lined up 15th for the 35-lap feature and used the opening laps to let the field sort itself out while he settled into a rhythm.  By lap seven he cracked the top ten.

The charge accelerated from there.  Feathers climbed into the top five on lap ten.  Over the last 25 laps, he battled with the front runners, climbing as high as 3rd and within striking distance of the lead.  Depending how it all unfolded, he had a shot to get to the front.  

Ultimately, Feathers finished 3rd, completing an unexpected turnaround from his early challenges.

“Well obviously I’m happy with the result we were able to get tonight after making the swap, but to be honest while I was passing cars I was thinking about what’s wrong with our blue car (the No.20).  That car won three of the last six races it ran in 2023.  I kept telling people I didn’t forget how to drive.”, Feathers said with a grin.

“We built the 27-car using the 20-car as a template, so both Team Zero chassis cars are exactly the same but the 27 just has a much better feel right now.”

“We’ve managed some good results but I honestly haven’t been happy with the 20-car all year.  It’s all about the feel.  It’s a mystery we’re going to solve.  We’re not giving up on it.  We love these Team Zero cars and we are getting better with them.”

UP NEXT

Feathers will tackle two more Appalachian Mountain Speedweek events for super late models this weekend.  

The team will travel to Lincoln Speedway in Abbotstown, PA, and BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, PA for the final two events of the series.

Berry Strives for Rhythm as Appalachian Mountain Speedweek Nears

Port Royal, PA – June 4, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Christopher Hockley / WRT Speedwerx

The calendar turned to June on Saturday yet for Austin Berry it still felt like the beginning of the 2024 season.  His season started late due to parts delays and there was a mix of good and bad news on his first two race nights.

Appalachian Mountain Speedweek was fast approaching and Berry needed to find a rhythm and find it quick.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  June 1, 2024

  • Division:  Super Late Models
  • Track:  Port Royal Speedway
  • City, State:   Port Royal, PA
  • Stats:  34 cars, Heat 2nd (2), A-main 14th (12)

A COMPLETE NIGHT

Berry’s pill draw Saturday night put him on the outside front row for his heat race and he took full advantage early on, jumping out to a five-car-length lead by the end of lap one.

Berry endured three restarts before two laps could be completed.  Each caution erased a comfortable lead and bunched the field.  Meanwhile 8th-starting Rick Eckert had a good car as well and was cashing in on the restarts.  He took the lead away before the halfway point and Berry settled for a runner-up finish.

The 25-lap main event saw Berry take the green from outside row six.  He found himself in a heated battle with Gregg Satterlee, Shaun Jones, and others for the majority of the event.

Berry ran 11th in the middle segment of the finale but could not quite crack the top ten.  He eventually closed out the night in 14th.

“I’m happy to get a full night in.  Our season started late, we had troubles the first night out, then we started good at Bridgeport but couldn’t close out the night.”, Berry commented.  “I’m glad we got this run under our belt before we take on Speedweek.”

“It’s not easy here.  The competition is deep.  You have to really be on to move forward here.  No excuses.  We weren’t good enough tonight but our car was good.  It was all about track position and dirty air.  I feel like we were good enough to run near the front if we had started up there.”

UP NEXT

Berry will tackle the entire 8-race slate of Appalachian Mountain Speedweek for super late models beginning this Friday night, June 7th.  The full schedule can be found at AustinBerryRacing.com!

Berry Sets Quick Time, Dominates Heat Race at Bridgeport Before Setback

Swedesboro, NJ – May 31, 2024

Austin Berry has waited, patiently, for the most part, to hit the track in 2024.  Delays in receiving motor parts and weather have left him unable to satisfy his appetite for speed.

His season debut at Port Royal Speedway a couple of weeks ago didn’t go well.  A series of nuisance issues kept him from being a factor that night.

Knowing he won’t be racing for points at his home track after missing several events, Berry has stepped back and looked at his schedule options.  He is trying to take lemons and make lemonade by rethinking his schedule and giving himself and his team a chance to grow and improve.  

How does a racer accomplish that?  They get out of their comfort zone.  They race new tracks and challenge themselves.  Berry will still see plenty of laps at Port Royal Speedway this year but Sunday he took the first step in deploying a new approach by making the three-hour tow to Bridgeport Motorsports Park for their invitational super late model race.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  May 26, 2024

  • Division:  Super Late Models
  • Track:  Bridgeport Motorsports Park
  • City, State:   Swedesboro, NJ
  • Stats:  19 cars, Qualifying 1st, Heat 1st (1), A-main DNF/18th (6)

ON THE CUSP

Berry was one of nineteen drivers to accept the invite to compete Sunday evening at the high-banked 4-tenths mile oval not far across the river from Philadelphia International Airport.  

He wasted no time making sure fans took notice.  With names like Covert, Eckert, Frye, Bernheisel, and Yoder in the field, Berry topped them all in qualifying with a blistering lap of 15.460 seconds, nearly two-tenths better than his closest competitor.  

It was an impressive effort, especially when you consider Berry has never seen the facility before.  He spent weeks doing homework though.  He watched videos and looked for information about tire wear, doing his best to prepare his equipment and team for the venture.  He clearly passed the initial test.

Berry earned the pole for his 8-lap heat race.  There was never a question.  He drove away from the field and took the checkered flag 1.4 seconds ahead of second place.

The six-car redraw dealt Berry his first minor setback.  He pulled number six.

Berry took the green from outside row three, feeling confident he had plenty to get him to the front over the course of the 40 scheduled laps.  Unfortunately very early on he had lost power steering, which was compounded by a water pump issue that led to overheating, forcing him to the sidelines just a few laps into the main event.  Officially he was recorded as finishing 18th.

“First off, I want to give a huge shout-out to Chris Spotts Welding & Repair for the $300 Quick Time Award.  That’s money that makes a difference, especially for a team like ours.  Just getting here with gas, tolls, tires, and race fuel is expensive, so we needed to make some money.  We really appreciate what Chris did.”, Berry said.

“We didn’t get the finish we deserved but honestly we are all leaving here smiling.  We were fast even though we had never seen this joint before.  That gives us a lot of confidence in what we are doing.  That’s big.  We will carry this into Port Royal next weekend.”

UP NEXT

Berry will return to Port Royal Speedway this Saturday night, June 1st, aiming to erase the disappointment of his debut there a few weeks ago.

Up and Down May Ends with Gains In Speed for Snook

Mifflintown, PA – May 30, 2024

After an April full of rain and scattered races for Lane Snook and the Mifflintown-based 23 team, more races occupied the next month. The team got to travel to several different tracks around the Central PA region and got to test out different packages on a wide variety of tracks.

Williams Grove and Port Royal rounded out the month of April. The topless 25-lap feature at Williams Grove turned out to be a bust with Lane retiring from the race after issues just past halfway and winding up 20th. Port Royal brought another challenging night, as a tough heat race buried the 23 car in the feature and netted only a plus-one finish of 15th. 

Rain followed the next two weeks and then the young racer was able to take on the Speed Palace once more, finishing with a 6th place run. Speed was building for the team and it showed at their next event at Clinton County Speedway. This was Lane’s first time at the speedway. Being quickest in hot laps, gave the young racer hope for the evening. After salvaging a good run following a heat race incident, Snook was able to pilot the 23 car to a top 10 finish, even after an early race misstep sent him to the tail. 

Rain followed the next night at Hagerstown. That left a Sunday night show for the team, to cap off the Memorial Day weekend, at Port Royal. Being a part of the Bob Weikert Memorial, the limited late models and Snook again got to showcase their skills in front of a massive crowd. With Lane rolling off 12th on the grid, his eyes were focused forward and he was able to drive up to 8th, to score his third consecutive top-10 finish. “We definitely made some gains on the car” stated Snook. That progress will hopefully pay off as the month of June ramps up in intensity, as long as Mother Nature cooperates. 

With the increased number of races on the horizon, being focused and locked in is important. This is a skill that the now 16-year-old racer makes a priority. “I just try to stay focused and make sure everything is done, and everything on the car is right.” Lane says he’s not one for a particular routine, but these few things help to keep him on track mentally during a race week and during a night of competition. 

Another key aspect of any race night is the support and help from sponsors. When asked about some of the relationships that Lane and the team have with sponsors, the young racer highlighted several people who do much more than just provide financial help for the late model team. “We go camping at Eldora with the Ritchey family (Ritchey Sandblasting). One crew guy, Duke (Mexico Ridge Beef Farms) gives us food and helps with other stuff.” Other family members of different sponsors also have a great relationship with the Snook family, including MHT Transport who helps with fuel, and Juniata Beverage, which provides the hydration the team needs after the races. “We all have very good relationships and support each other as much as we can.” This allows the teenage late model driver to remain focused and to also stay loose being surrounded by such close sponsors that have practically become family. 

Snook and team would like to again thank all of their sponsors for keeping them on track and getting them prepared for a busy summer. The team looks to start June with a strong run at BAPS Motor Speedway on June 1st. Port Royal will be on the schedule the following weekend, June 8th. With the end of May’s speed, fans should expect to see more highs than lows in June.

Feathers Sees Victory Slip Away at Port Royal on Double-Duty Night

Port Royal, PA – May 21, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Trever Feathers has been upfront all season long, regardless of whether he straps into the McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, George’s Used Cars, Martin’s Pumping, North River Farm, Feathers & Son’s Roofing, Leggett Engine Research, Coffelt Graphics, Shane McDowell Racing, Fox Racing Shox No.20 super late model or the No.27 limited late model.

The lone exception was the difficult weekend his last time out at the end of April.  That weekend things just didn’t go very well in either car.

Feathers was back in action with both cars and looking to rebound last weekend at Port Royal Speedway while pulling double-duty.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  May 18, 2024

  • Class:  Super Late Model 
  • Track:  Port Royal Speedway
  • City, State:   Port Royal, PA
  • Quick Stats:  33 cars, Qualifying 3rd; Heat 2nd (4), A-main 2nd (4)

 

DATE:  May 18, 2024

  • Class:  Limited Late Model 
  • Track:  Port Royal Speedway
  • City, State:   Port Royal, PA
  • Quick Stats:  15 cars, Heat 2nd (4), A-main 8th (1)

 

STEADY STEEL BLOCK

In limited late model division, Feathers was definitely back on track from the start.  He drove from 4th to 2nd in his heat race and earned the pole for the 20-lap main event.

Feathers’ only miss of the night with his No.27 steel block was his feature setup.  He slipped back to an 8th-place finish.

“I missed the setup or feature with this car (the limited).  It was really good in the heat, so I didn’t think it needed much  When you’re running two cars, the super (late model) is the priority, so we worked on that car first.  I probably should have made some adjustments but opted not to.”, Feathers shared.

TWO TURNS AWAY

Feathers’ focus was rightfully on the super late model given there was $5,000 on the line for the winner of the Spring Championship feature.

Time trials were used to qualify the highly competitive 33-car field and set heat race lineups.  Feathers went out late but registered the 3rd quickest lap in the field, a mere 0.081 seconds off quick time.

The inversion put Feathers outside row two for his heat race.  Just past the halfway point of the 8-lap qualifier, he raced his way into the runner-up spot and held on to finish there.

In the 25-lap finale, Feathers once again started outside row two but this time used a bold move into turn one to split the front row starters.  The Winchester, VA native drove up the middle past the flag stand, then moved to the high side of the speedway in turn two to pull even for the lead down the backstretch.  

When the field reached the start/finish line to complete the opening lap, it was Feathers leading the way.  He remained at the front of the field for the next twenty circuits, enduring several restarts but managing to keep the competition at bay.

With four laps remaining, the final caution of the event appeared.  On the ensuing restart, Feathers again took command with Dylan Yoder and Colton Flinner battling for second.  Flinner claimed the spot and came after Feathers on the final lap, squeezing alongside and making contact on the low side of turn 3.

When the pair emerged off turn four and came to the line they were nose to tail, with Feathers finishing second.

“The cautions hurt us.  Our American Racer tires fired off great but after all the cautions what we really needed was a long green flag run.”, Feathers commented.

“We had good speed all night.  We timed well and raced well.  Overall I’m happy.  I just don’t race people the way we got raced there on the last lap.  Wanted to come out of here with the win but I’m not going to do it that way.  I probably should have stuck to my line in (turns) one and two, then protected at the other end.”

UP NEXT

Feathers will have a busy Memorial Day Weekend ahead.  Tentatively the team may head to Bedford Speedway Friday, May 24th for the $4,000-to-win Turk Burket Tribute.

Saturday night May 25th Feathers will return to Port Royal Speedway where the super late models will compete alongside the High Limit Sprint Cars on Fallen Heroes Championship Night.

Sunday May 26th will bring a trip to Potomac Speedway in Mechanicsville, MD for the $3,022-to-win Ernie Jones Memorial super late model event.
