After a top five run the week before, Trever Feathers was looking to fine tune his Barry Wright Race Car and take the next step forward, but instead found himself struggling to find the right combination at Port Royal Speedway.

As is often the case with dirt racing, the surface was a little different than the week before, plus Feathers was trying things to make his program better.  That’s where the night started and it left Feathers chasing the right solution all night.

  • Date:  April 8, 2023
  • Track:  Port Royal Speedway
  • City, State:   Port Royal, PA
  • Quick Stats:  43 cars, Heat 6th (5), B-main 2nd (4), A-main 24th (22)


The Battle

With a large field of 43 super late models on hand, only the top five finishers in each of the four heat races would transfer directly to the feature event, leaving the balance of the field to duke it out in a B-main for the final four spots in the main event’s starting lineup.

Feathers drew the 5th starting spot in the final heat race of the evening and kept himself above the cut line past the halfway point of the race, but the Winchester, VA driver slipped out of a transfer spot with a few laps remaining and was unable to recover.

The changes Feathers made to the Hot Rod Septic Treatment, Larry Royston’s Septic Services, Martins Pumping Service, McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, 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 in preparation for the 12-lap B-main certainly seemed to help, at least a little.  After starting 4th, Feathers raced to a runner-up finish to put his team in the show.

That was about the only positive note from the night though.  In the 25-lap A-main, Feather found himself wrestling an ill-handling ride early in the going and made the decision to save his equipment for another battle.  He parked his machine after five laps and was credited with finishing 24th officially.

We weren’t good.  That’s it.  I would like to forget about this one get to the next race.“, a frustrated and honest Feathers said.

Trever and the Larry Royston Racing team will be headed to Georgetown Speedway Thursday, April 13th for the $3,000-to-win Mark ‘Coot’ Williams Memorial Super Late Model “Shakedown”.  If you can’t make it out to Georgetown, DE, tune into FloRacing.com at 6:30pm!
