Trever Feathers had plans to head to Georgetown Speedway Saturday night for the annual Camp Barnes Benefit, but Mother Nature had other ideas.
The race and his trip toward the eastern coastline was delayed to Sunday by the weather, so Feathers switched to ‘Plan B’ for Saturday night and strapped into Brad Omps’ No.5T limited late model at Winchester (VA) Speedway instead.

CHANGE OF PLANS
Saturday night was the third time in the past month that Feathers took advantage of an open schedule to race the No.5T at Winchester. He had already racked up two quick times, a heat win, and feature finishes of 1st and 3rd in his first two outings.
Picking up where he left off, Feathers was fast time in his group and won his heat race with a four-second advantage.
The redraw handed Feathers the 4th starting spot for the main event but he was unable to make any forward progress and finished in the same spot.
ACROSS THE BAY BRIDGE
Feathers was fast out of the trailer with his 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 Sunday evening in Delaware, posting the 2nd quickest effort in hot laps.
In his heat race, Feathers blasted from the 4th starting spot to the runner-up position on the opening lap. He gave chase to leader Bryan Bernheisel but soon noticed his No.20 began pushing water out the overflow. The engine temp began to climb, forcing the Winchester, VA native to the pits prematurely and making him officially the 8th place finisher.
Feathers’ team found the source of their problem. A clump of mud had knocked the belt off the water pump. With repairs made, Feathers joined the rear of the starting lineup for the 30-lap feature.
At the drop of the green on the main event, Feathers once again showed how good his Team Zero car was. He charged toward the front, cracking the top ten before the race was ten laps old.
Feathers reached 8th a few laps later and appeared poised to be headed toward the top five when the car suddenly got tight and pushed hard entering the turns.
Feathers lost a couple of spots and had his hands full with a very ill-handling racecar. Just past the halfway mark, rather than fight and abuse his equipment, he took it pit-side and was credited with 14th.
The reason for the sudden change quickly became apparent. A clump of mud had caved in the filler panel, which is located above the nose of the car.
“Well, I guess that’s racing.”, Feathers said about his tough night. “With the speeds we run here, aerodynamics are critical. Once our filler panel was caved in like that, I had my hands full. We can’t afford to bust our stuff up, so I had to call it a night.“
“I love coming here. The facility, the people…hanging out with guys like Clayton (Peters) and everyone we see when we are here. I love the trip over the Bay Bridge anytime I can do that. But man, we haven’t had any luck here lately.“
Feathers will return to Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA on Saturday night for the Lazer Late Model Clash 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 super late model.
