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.

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.
