The only way to get better is to race, but that has been a struggle.  The weather over the past few months has erased a number of opportunities for Trever Feathers to go racing.  It’s been difficult to get into any kind of rhythm.

Feathers and the Larry Royston Racing team were looking forward to their first three race stint with stops at Bedford, Lincoln and Potomac over the Memorial Day weekend.  This time, the story unfolded a little differently but with a similar outcome.


  • Date:  May 26, 2023
  • Event:  Turk Burkett Tribute
  • Track:  Bedford Speedway
  • City, State:   Bedford, PA
  • Quick Stats:  33 cars, Qualifying 2nd Group A, Heat 2nd (1), A-main 20th (3)


The Right Foot

Feathers and the Hot Rod Septic Treatment, Larry Royston’s Septic Services, Martins Pumping Service, McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, North River Farm, 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 were among 33 entries for Friday night’s Turk Burkett Tribute at Bedford Speedway.

The Winchester, VA wheelman got his night and weekend off on the right foot.  He turned in the 2nd quickest lap in Group A qualifying, putting himself on the pole of heat race number two.

Feathers led the first three laps of the 8-lap event but settled for a 2nd place finish behind Kyle Lee.

Positives Despite Disappointment

The top two finishers from each heat race participated in a redraw to set the first four rows of the main event starting lineup.  Feathers drew the number three pill, putting himself inside row two for the 40-lap finale.

Feathers raced inside the top five for the opening half of the race and was running a solid 5th on lap 25 when the engine went sour and he dropped off the pace.  The good night ended and disappointment moved in abruptly.

It’s no secret Bedford is not one of my best tracks, so we feel pretty good about timing well and racing really well before the issues.”, Feathers said.  

There were definitely positives out of Friday night.  The car is getting better.  Now we just have to deal with the engine issue and make sure we can keep going the right direction.  Just stinks we had to miss the rest of the weekend to get regrouped.


Unwanted Days Off

Feathers and his team held out hope they would get their backup engine in place and carry on with their plans to race at Lincoln Speedway.  Those plans soon adjusted to skipping Lincoln to be ready to race Potomac on Sunday, but when additional problems were uncovered, the team was forced to abandon their plans for the remainder of the weekend.


Up Next

Feathers and the Larry Royston Racing team are regrouping and expect to be ready to return to Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, June 3rd.

Trivia Question

The answer to our last trivia question is since his first full racing season in 2010, Trever Feathers has collected over 40 wins combined limited and super late model wins, so the answer was B!

Now, on to this week’s question.  Is Trever a 2nd, 3rd or 4th generation racer?

The answer in the next press release!
