The struggles date back to the 2022 season for Trever Feathers. He and his team managed to log a couple wins over the course of the season, but finding a consistent balance and steady performance was difficult.
In search of that, Feathers and his team have made a lot of changes to their equipment and various aspects of their program over the past year. Lately there have been signs of a return to past form.
Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway, Feathers made it clear the team is a factor again.
- Date: August 5, 2023
- Track: Port Royal Speedway
- City, State: Port Royal, PA
- Quick Stats: 29 cars, Qualifying 4th in Group 1, Heat 2nd (1), A-main 1st (3)
Setting the Stage
Saturday’s show at Port Royal Speedway got off to a reasonable start for Feathers. There were 29 cars on hand, split into three groups for qualifying and heat races. Trever qualified 4th in Group 1.
An inversion put Feathers on the pole of the first heat race of the night. After an early battle for the lead saw the Winchester, VA driver lead lap two, he rode home in 2nd to put himself firmly in a handicap spot.
Feathers lined up 3rd for the 25-lap feature event in the McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, Larry Royston’s Septic Services, Martins Pumping Service, Feathers & Sons Roofing, North River Farm, Leggett Engine Research, 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.
The opening laps were closely contested among the top four, with Feathers hovering between 3rd and 4th over the first eight laps.
After battling Ross Robinson and Jim Bernheisel for several laps, Feathers finally took clear possession of 3rd on lap eleven, and one lap later made his move into the runner-up spot.
With ten laps remaining, Feathers caught leader Bryan Bernheisel. Meanwhile, Gregg Satterlee was also charging toward the front of the field and was hot on the heels of the No.20.
Feathers used the low side of the speedway during much of the main event, but was able to move to the middle and high side when he needed to in order to navigate traffic. On lap sixteen he took command of the top spot and kept up a quick and aggressive pace through traffic to keep Satterlee at bay.
Feathers recorded his first win of 2023 by a 0.915 margin of victory.
“It’s been a while.“, a smiling Feathers said as he climbed out of his No.20 in victory lane. “This car has been unbelievable. We were good here last time too. I can’t thank Shane McDowell and all the guys down in Tennessee enough. This Team Zero car has been so good, so thanks to him and Sarah as well as Scott Bloomquist.“
“These American Racer tires have been so good. I want to thank Dustin over there for everything he does for us. These tires really hold up, which saves us money. That’s really important to be able to sustain our program.“, Feathers continued.
“Thank you to my mom, my dad and my grandfather. Thank you to my uncle Jimmy who has been a huge supporter of mine since the beginning with McFarland’s Custom Painting. Larry and Lisa Royston do so much for me with our other car.“
Feathers went on to allude to some things happening for the team in the next couple weeks that he feels will make the team even better, especially early in the night.
“Shout out to Coffelt Graphics who always keeps our cars looking great. Thanks to Roger at Fox Shox. Their shocks were sweet tonight. The horsepower Rick Leggett gives us runs so good I don’t even have to watch the gauges. And of course, I need to thank my guys too.“, Feathers concluded.
Feathers is taking a short break for a family vacation, then will determine the team’s upcoming race schedule.
