GOTTA GET A GRIP

Feathers made the tow to Georgetown Speedway in Delaware Thursday night where he has supported the track’s events this season.  Aside from supporting regional super late model racing, it’s also a place he sees as a challenge that can help make his team better.

“We’ve struggled in the slick this year, something we haven’t had issues with in the past, so I keep coming back here (to Georgetown) because if we can get a hold of this place, we’ll know we’ve figured out our problem.”, Feathers shared.

Thursday’s show used a combined hot lap/time trial session to set the field for a feature-only program.

Feathers started and finished 3rd, navigating a tricky surface that had recently suffered from a lot of rain.

“I had a couple runs at (Donald) Lingo for second but I made a mistake and lost my shot at that, so I just gathered it back up and made sure I got it in the trailer in one piece.”, Feathers said.

Saturday night in his hometown of Winchester, VA, Feathers’ ride was adorned with the No.91 in honor of his great uncle at the Jimmy Spence Memorial at Winchester VA Speedway.

Thanks to the efforts of Feather’s cousin J.T. Spence and his uncle Jimmy McFarland, the annual event offered $6,091 to the winner, bonuses for heat race winners, and more.  The race is a family affair and means a lot to everyone who puts in a lot of hard work to honor the late Jimmy Spence.

A strong field of 29 drivers was on hand to do battle for the extra cash.  Heats were set by group time trials with a four-car inversion.  Feathers set quick time in his group, putting him outside row two to start the heat race.

“I think my knowledge of this place got us the quick time there.”, Feathers said.  “The car wasn’t great but I know how to get around here and help it a little.”

Feathers and 3rd place starter Kyle Hardy waged an entertaining battle in the heat race, with Feathers coming out on top to take the win and earn the 3rd starting spot for the 51-lap feature event.

In the early going, Feathers held serve in 3rd while everyone settled in for the extra-distance feature.  Although he slipped back a couple of spots, he held on inside the top five throughout the race and eventually took the checkered flag in 5th.

“The track got really slick in the feature, so my car struggled a little again.”, Feathers commented.  “I probably should’ve finished worse than I did.  We’ll keep working on it and get this thing figured out so we can get back to where we were late last year with this car when we went on a tear.  We’re gonna do some testing tomorrow.”

UP NEXT

Wednesday night, July 3rd, Feathers will head to Potomac Speedway in Maryland for the Gene VanMeter Memorial super late model race.

Saturday night, July 6th, the team will return to Port Royal Speedway when the super late models join the Pennsylvania Speedweek program for the sprint cars.
