Hometown Saturday Night
Feathers was among a field of 27 drivers signed in to compete in the Junior Boone Memorial at Winchester (VA) Speedway Saturday night, which offered the winner $5,015 to win, a guaranteed starting spot in Sunday’s Frank Sagi Tribute race at Hagerstown and a potential bonus of $1,500 if they could win both races.
In single group qualifying, Feathers hit the track last thanks to an unfriendly pill draw and his best lap ranked 15th overall. The lap put him in 4th in the lineup for his heat race, which he converted into a 3rd place finish.
Feathers started 11th in 35-lap feature but struggled early with an ill-handling car and retired early from the event.
Sunday Night Rally
Sunday night’s Frank Sagi Tribute race at Hagerstown Speedway in northern Maryland attracted a strong field of 43 super late models. A shower hit the speedway less than two hours before racing was to begin, putting a little extra moisture into the surface.
Feathers turned in the 4th fastest lap in Group 2 qualifying, landing him outside row two to start his heat race.
On the start of the 8-lap race, Feathers took the 3rd spot, but he slid high off turn two slipped back to 4th at the line. On the fast, locked down surface that was difficult to pass on, he went on to finish 4th in the Larry Royston’s Septic Services, Martins Pumping Service, McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, North River Farm, Leggett Engine Research, Feathers & Sons Roofing, Hot Rod Septic Treatment, Team Zero Race Cars, Shane McDowell Racing, Coffelt Graphics, Larry Royston Properties, Larry Royston Equipment, Fox Racing Shox, Bo Feathers Racing, Clem’s Garage, No.20.
After making some adjustments during the break, Feathers lined up 14th for the 30-lap main event and settled into a rhythm in the early going. On lap eight he moved into the 12th spot and started to chip his way toward the top ten.
On lap twelve Feathers cracked the top ten and continued to methodically close on the front-runners. With seven laps remaining, he wrestled the 7th spot away from Jeff Rine and set his sights on Jason Covert in 6th. The laps ran out with Feathers in 7th.
“Man, the car was phenomenal tonight. We needed to time a little better earlier tonight and we would have been right in the thick of it.“, Feathers said. “It was a good late rally though. The extra moisture probably worked against us.“
“This car is comfortable, and it responds to what we are doing. We’ve only got a few races under our belt with it, but we are learning quickly.”
“I’m excited for the rest of our season; we just need to be smart about using the resources we have. It would really help us compete in some of the bigger shows that are coming up if we could add another partner to the team. Hopefully we will catch somebody’s eye.“, Feathers added.
Feathers plans to take the upcoming weekend off and the team is evaluating their schedule options beyond that. Stay tuned to Trever’s social media outlets listed below or check Addicted2DirtPR.com/Events to find his latest schedule at any time.
14 races, 0 wins, 4 top 5’s, 6 top 10’s, 9 top 15’s
The answer to our last trivia question is for a long time the track at the top of Trever Feathers wish list to compete at was East Bay Raceway Park in Brandon, FL. He was able to check that goal off in 2020 when he joined the Lucas Oil Late Models there for their entire Winternationals week!
Now, on to this week’s question. TBD?
The answer in the next press release!
