Trever Feathers has been upfront all season long, regardless of whether he straps into 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 No.20 super late model or the No.27 limited late model.

The lone exception was the difficult weekend his last time out at the end of April.  That weekend things just didn’t go very well in either car.

Feathers was back in action with both cars and looking to rebound last weekend at Port Royal Speedway while pulling double-duty.

STEADY STEEL BLOCK

In limited late model division, Feathers was definitely back on track from the start.  He drove from 4th to 2nd in his heat race and earned the pole for the 20-lap main event.

Feathers’ only miss of the night with his No.27 steel block was his feature setup.  He slipped back to an 8th-place finish.

“I missed the setup or feature with this car (the limited).  It was really good in the heat, so I didn’t think it needed much  When you’re running two cars, the super (late model) is the priority, so we worked on that car first.  I probably should have made some adjustments but opted not to.”, Feathers shared.

TWO TURNS AWAY

Feathers’ focus was rightfully on the super late model given there was $5,000 on the line for the winner of the Spring Championship feature.

Time trials were used to qualify the highly competitive 33-car field and set heat race lineups.  Feathers went out late but registered the 3rd quickest lap in the field, a mere 0.081 seconds off quick time.

The inversion put Feathers outside row two for his heat race.  Just past the halfway point of the 8-lap qualifier, he raced his way into the runner-up spot and held on to finish there.

In the 25-lap finale, Feathers once again started outside row two but this time used a bold move into turn one to split the front row starters.  The Winchester, VA native drove up the middle past the flag stand, then moved to the high side of the speedway in turn two to pull even for the lead down the backstretch.  

When the field reached the start/finish line to complete the opening lap, it was Feathers leading the way.  He remained at the front of the field for the next twenty circuits, enduring several restarts but managing to keep the competition at bay.

With four laps remaining, the final caution of the event appeared.  On the ensuing restart, Feathers again took command with Dylan Yoder and Colton Flinner battling for second.  Flinner claimed the spot and came after Feathers on the final lap, squeezing alongside and making contact on the low side of turn 3.

When the pair emerged off turn four and came to the line they were nose to tail, with Feathers finishing second.

“The cautions hurt us.  Our American Racer tires fired off great but after all the cautions what we really needed was a long green flag run.”, Feathers commented.

“We had good speed all night.  We timed well and raced well.  Overall I’m happy.  I just don’t race people the way we got raced there on the last lap.  Wanted to come out of here with the win but I’m not going to do it that way.  I probably should have stuck to my line in (turns) one and two, then protected at the other end.”

UP NEXT

Feathers will have a busy Memorial Day Weekend ahead.  Tentatively the team may head to Bedford Speedway Friday, May 24th for the $4,000-to-win Turk Burket Tribute.

Saturday night May 25th Feathers will return to Port Royal Speedway where the super late models will compete alongside the High Limit Sprint Cars on Fallen Heroes Championship Night.
