After winning at Hagerstown Speedway in his 2024 limited late model debut, Trever Feathers opted to compete at Potomac Speedway’s Steel Block Clash Danny Garrett Memorial Saturday night to take his shot at claiming the $3,999 top prize.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  April 13, 2024

  • Event:  Danny Garrett Memorial
  • Class:  Limited Late Model
  • Track:  Potomac Speedway
  • City, State:   Potomac, MD
  • Quick Stats:  26 cars, Heat 2nd (2), A-main 10th (5)

 

WHO NEEDS A BRAKE PEDAL?

Feathers made the two-and-a-half-hour haul from Winchester, Virginia to Potomac Speedway in Southern Maryland Saturday with his 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.27.  

It didn’t take him long to pick up where he left off the week before at Hagerstown.  He was quick out of the box, logging the 4th fastest qualifying lap in the 26-car field.  

A solid second-place run in his heat race put Feathers in the redraw for the 49-lap A-main.  He pulled the five pill to take the inside row three starting spot.

In the early going, Feathers simply tried to ‘hold serve’, keeping his nose clean, saving his tires, and staying away from some of the aggressive moves around him.  Mid-race he found himself in 7th but confident with the car he had under him for the last half.

Five laps in the track started to take rubber, reducing it to one good lane.  Feathers was a little underpowered, leaving him at a disadvantage getting up off the corners, but he continued to turn in a workmanlike effort to put himself in what he believed would be a good position late in the race.

His approach was paying off.  Others began experiencing late-race tire issues while Feathers had plenty left.  On a late restart, he moved his way into 3rd and battled for the runner-up spot.

The best-laid plans don’t always work out though.

With six laps remaining, a rocker arm broke in Feather’s engine, ending his night and landing him 10th in the final rundown.

“We had a decent car and thanks to patience we were in position to capitalize tonight if we had not broken a rocker arm.”, a disappointed Feathers said.  

“I love to race and rubbin’ is racing but man, I swear nobody had a brake pedal out there tonight.  It was crazy.  No give and take at all.  I was trying to use my head and survive and it would have worked out if we didn’t have the engine issue.”

UP NEXT

Feathers will return to super late model action this weekend at Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, April 20th.  This weekend, the speedway plans to use a Lucas Oil Late Model style time trial format in preparation for the series’ appearance at The Speed Palace on April 28th.

Feathers Dominates in Surprise Limited Late Model Visit to Hagerstown

Hagerstown, MD – April 9, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Trever Feathers recently encountered an opportunity to add a second Team Zero chassis to his program.  It wasn’t brand new but given the success Feathers has experienced since switching to the brand, the decision to acquire it didn’t take long.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  April 6, 2024

  • Class:  Limited Late Model
  • Track:  Hagerstown Speedway
  • City, State:   Hagerstown, MD
  • Quick Stats:  25 cars, Heat 1st (7), A-main 1st (7)

 

SURPRISE!

In little more than a week, Feathers and his team took the bare bones chassis and made it race-ready with a limited engine under the hood.

“The difference from Monday to Saturday was unbelievable.  My guys and sponsors are truly amazing.”, Feathers said of the effort by his team.

Feathers took his 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.27 to Hagerstown Speedway on Saturday to put it to the test.

You might have noticed the number change from his usual No.20 that adorns the sides of his super late model.

“That’s the number I first started racing with, so I just thought I would bring it back for this car.”, Feathers explained.

Feathers was originally slated to start 7th in his 8-lap heat race but lineup adjustments put him inside row two for the green flag.  From the start it was clear the newly built machine was up to the task.  Feathers drove into 2nd on the opening lap, then on lap six he drove by race-long leader Kyle Lear to take over the lead.  He went on to win by 1.8 seconds.

The Winchester, VA native showed more of the same in the main event.  Once again he took the green from inside row three.  It took him only three laps to claim the top spot and he dominated the rest of the way, winning by 1.96 seconds.

UP NEXT

Feathers will load up his No.27 once again this Saturday and head to Potomac Speedway in Mechanicsville, MD for the $3,999-to-win Danny Garrett Memorial Limited Late Models Steel Block Clash.

Feathers’ Tire Misfortune Turns into Impressive Comeback at ‘Coot’ Williams Memorial

Georgetown, DE – March 30, 2024

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit: SDS Racing Photography

Trever Feathers kicked off his 2024 super late model campaign with a trip to Delaware’s Georgetown Speedway for the Mark ‘Coot’ Williams Memorial.

It was finally time to put the product of all the long winter shop hours to the test and see how their work measured up.  Based on what fans saw from Feathers Friday night, he appears to be poised for a very successful season.

QUICK RESULTS

DATE:  March 29, 2024

  • Class:  Super Late Model
  • Event:  Mark ‘Coot’ Williams Memorial
  • Track:  Georgetown Speedway
  • City, State:   Georgetown, DE
  • Quick Stats:  13 cars, Heat 3rd (4), A-main 4th (2)

 

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

Feathers’ night began with an outside row two start in his heat race.  He quickly surged into the runner-up spot but by the midpoint of the 8-lap qualifier, he had slipped to 3rd.  He rode home 3rd and it was good enough to make the redraw.

A little luck shined on Feathers during the redraw, putting him outside the front row for the 26-lap main event.  The first two attempts to get the race underway led to cautions but eventually, the race went green and the Winchester (VA) native took command.

Feathers led the first two circuits, then as he launched off turn two on lap three, disaster struck.  The left rear tire exploded.

Fortunately, he was able to maintain control and take his McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, George’s Used Cars, Martin’s Pumping, North River Farm, Feathers & Son’s Roofing, Leggett Engine Research, Coffelt Graphics No.20 to the hot pit inside turn four.

Feathers’ team bolted on a new left rear tire and sent their Team Zero Race Cars, Shane McDowell Racing, Fox Racing Shox machine back into the battle.

Over the remaining two dozen laps, Feathers chipped his way forward from the back of the field.  With four laps remaining, he was sitting in the 6th position, but a late surge rewarded the Trever Feathers Racing team with a 4th place finish for their efforts.

“Man, the car was so good tonight.  Our luck here is just unreal.”, Feathers commented, referring to a string of things that haven’t gone his way over the past several visits to Georgetown.

“I think we had the car to beat tonight.  Our Team Zero Race Car has speed and balance.  Those are positives we can take away.  I was really comfortable, so I hope that will carry forward to our next race.”

“I have to thank everyone who supports us in this deal.  We truly appreciate everyone.  We wouldn’t be able to do this without them.”

UP NEXT

Port Royal Speedway rained out once again on March 30th, which is already the third potential race lost to weather there in 2024.

Feathers is still weighing his options for next week.  Please follow Trever’s social media channels listed below for updates this week!

Trever Feathers To Appear at Motorsports Trade Show and Unveil 2024 Car

George’s Used Cars on Board as New Partner for 2024 Campaign

Winchester, VA – December 27, 2023

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Jeremy Zarfos Photography

If you thought things slowed down for Winchester, VA super late model pilot Trever Feathers after his final race of 2023 back in October, which was a victory at Lincoln Speedway in Pennsylvania, you would be incorrect.

Feathers went to work to do his best to build on the momentum he had established with his three victories during the second half of the season.  

More on that in a bit.  First, some other news out of the Trever Feathers Racing camp.

MOTORSPORTS SHOW

A lot of teams circle early March on their calendar and work to prepare their equipment for that deadline.  Feathers was on a different schedule as he looked ahead to 2024.  He was aiming for mid-January, not only so he could be ahead of the game, but also so he could have his Team Zero No.20 ready for an appearance.

Fans who make their way to the Motorsports Racecar and Trade Show in Oaks, PA outside of Philadelphia on January 19th-20th will be able to meet Trever Feathers and see his freshly unveiled 2024 ride at the American Racer booth.

Feathers will be on hand both days to greet fans, take photos, and sign autographs.  He will have hero cards to hand out as well.

The show is held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center and occupies over 240,000 square feet of the facility.  The show is open 2pm-9pm on Friday and 11am-8pm on Saturday.  Adult admission is $15, ages 6-11 are $5, and under 6 are free.

SPORTSMAN OF THE YEAR

Feathers received a pleasant surprise on December 18th when Port Royal Speedway announced their year-end awards.  He was announced as the winner of the Super Late Model division Sportsman Award.

It was the first time winning the award for Feathers and he expressed his appreciation for the nod.

“I am honored to win the 2023 Sportsman Award from Port Royal Speedway.  We do our best to operate as a class organization and do things the right way.  I truly appreciate the recognition.”, a happy Feathers said.

NEW PARTNER

George’s Used Cars, located in Orbisonia, PA will join Trever Feathers Racing as a marketing partner in 2024.

“We are a family business that has been in operation for nearly 50 years.  Trever, Bo, and their team are just like us.  It’s a family deal and they are doing their best, working hard to compete.  I can relate to and appreciate that, so we wanted to help.”, said Mark Viener, who operates the business along with his mother and father.

“I got to know Trever’s uncle Jimmy a while back.  That’s where it all started.  We used to race ourselves but after that ended, we have been doing what we can to support local racing and local racers.”

Fans should check out GeorgesUsedCars.com to see all the great vehicles and deals that are available or visit them at 180 Ridgely St., Orbisonia, Pa. 17243.  Their phone number is (814) 447-3175 and they’re open Mon-Fri from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm with Saturday hours of 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.

ROOM FOR MORE

Feathers is still seeking additional partners for the 2024 season.  The team has prime real estate available on the right door and rear deck of their Team Zero racecar.   

There is also an entry-level opportunity for a business to purchase a K1 RaceGear Firesuit for Feathers.  The business would have full control over the design of the suit, which would feature its logo prominently on the front and back.  After two seasons of use, the suit would be autographed and returned to the buyer as a souvenir!

Anyone interested in either type of available partnership can contact the team by emailing [email protected].

OFFSEASON PROGRESS

Now let’s get back to where we started this update.

Not one to enjoy last-minute scrambles in February preparing for a season opener in early March, Feathers gets right to work in the shop when his season is complete.

“Rushing leads to mistakes and waiting can lead to challenges getting the parts we need in time.  I don’t mess around with all that.”, Feathers explained.

“We unloaded our car in the shop after our win at Lincoln on October 7th and we had it torn down within a week or two.”

Feathers went over every component, replacing many of them to make sure he has a reliable piece when he hits the track again.  The teardown and rebuild also provide the opportunity to ensure everything fits and functions the way it is intended. 

By Thanksgiving the car was ready for 2024, minus a little sheet metal and a fresh wrap.  That is quick progress.

“With the car ready, now we can focus on the trailer, the toter, and the shop.  There’s a lot of work to be done to have those aspects of the program prepared properly too so we minimize the potential of missing a race or needing to load up early on any given night because we don’t have what we need to get back on the track.”, Feathers shared.

One area Feathers has been focusing on this winter is building depth in his parts inventory and preparing the car in a way that makes race night repairs faster.

“With our car, there are parts we need to fabricate.  We can’t just go buy two or three of them, so I have been busy doing a lot of that.  I don’t want to have to load up early because we get into a heat race incident and don’t have what we need to make repairs.”, Feathers commented. 

2024 PLANS

Much like 2023, there will be a lot of Port Royal Speedway dates on Feathers’ 2024 schedule.  A big chunk of, or possibly all of, Appalachian Mountain Speedweek is on his radar as well.

The team is also keeping an eye on other regional shows offering good paydays.  

“We are based in Winchester, VA, so we usually have to travel at least a couple of hours to get to a race.  There are a couple of super races each year here in our home town but we have to venture out for everything else.”, Feathers shared.

“We keep an eye on schedules in Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, and all around to see what our options are.  Given the cost of just getting there and back, plus what it takes to put the car on the track for a night, we have to do the math and be sure it makes sense for us to go to a race.  Until we can add more partners to help our budget, that’s how we have to operate.”

An average finish of 7.1 in his last ten races of 2023, which includes three wins, has Feathers excited about 2024 in his McFarland Custom Painting & Wall Coverings, George’s Used Cars, Larry Royston’s Septic Services, Martins Pumping Service, Feathers & Sons Roofing, North River Farm, Leggett Engine Research, Team Zero Race Cars, Shane McDowell Racing, Coffelt Graphics, Larry Royston Properties, Larry Royston Equipment, Fox Racing Shox, Bo Feathers Racing, No.20.  

“We are heading into the new year with fewer questions than we have the last couple of years.  We figured out some of our issues and got on a solid foundation during the latter part of 2023.  I’m optimistic about our potential and I hope others see it as well so we can continue to grow this program.”, Feathers said.

Marketing partnership opportunities are available for the 2024 season!
