Trever Feathers rolled into Port Royal Speedway Saturday afternoon after being sidelined by Mother Nature for three consecutive weekends.  A break like that does not work to the advantage of a team that needs to race more, not less, to find the right combination for success.

It has been a roller coaster ride over the first two months of the season.  One race in early March, then a three week break.  Three races in early April, then another three week break.  Hopefully May will bring a steady diet of opportunities to dial in Feather’s Barry Wright Icon chassis.


  • Date:  May 6, 2023
  • Track:  Port Royal Speedway
  • City, State:   Port Royal, PA
  • Quick Stats:  30 cars, Qualifying 8th overall, Heat 3rd (3), A-main 12th (8)


Finally Back At It

The format at Port Royal Speedway Saturday evening was set to mimic the World of Outlaws Late Models program as a means of preparing teams for the upcoming visit by the traveling organization.

With a stout field of 30 cars pit-side, Feathers kicked off his night on a positive note by logging the 8th fastest lap overall.  The qualifying effort landed the Winchester, VA native in the 3rd starting spot for his heat race, giving him a solid shot at one of the top two redraw spots.

Feathers held his ground over the first two circuits, trying to find a rhythm and the best groove at the same time.  In the process, he slipped back to 4th on lap three.  He battled back to reclaim 3rd the following lap but was unable to close the gap on runner up Jeff Rine before the checkered flag fell.


One Step at a Time

Starting the 25-lap feature event from outside row four, Feathers had his sights set on earning a top five finish, but he found himself in a defensive mode during the opening laps rather than in attack mode.

By lap four Feathers had dropped to 11th.  He continued to struggle and lost another spot a few laps later.  

Finally, around the halfway mark of the race, his car started to come alive.  He turned his fastest lap of the race and began to reel the top ten back in.  As good as the car was at that point, it was too much ground to make up in the caution-free race.

Feathers ended the night with a 12th place finish in the Hot Rod Septic Treatment, Larry Royston’s Septic Services, Martins Pumping Service, McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, North River Farm, Clem’s Garage, Leggett Engine Research, Feathers & Sons Roofing, Coffelt Graphics, Larry Royston Properties, Larry Royston Equipment, Bilstein Shocks, Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic, Bo Feathers Racing, Barry Wright Race Cars, No.20.

Well, we finished the race and we didn’t get lapped.  The way things have been going, that was the first goal.  I may have set the bar a little low for myself but at least we did that.”, Feathers chuckled.

Even though that wasn’t our best finish of the year here, that was the best I felt so far.  We are finding some balance in the car that I think we can build on.  It’s not really a secret that we stayed on the old tires mostly so far this year.  We did that so we had one less variable to deal with while we were dialing this thing in.” 


Up Next

This Friday, Feathers will take the night off for some family time to celebrate his son’s birthday.

Saturday night he and the Larry Royston Racing team will visit their hometown track, Winchester (VA) Speedway looking to get back in the win column at a place where he has a a lot of success over the years.
