Trever Feathers was looking forward to racing in his own backyard Saturday night. Winchester Speedway has been good to him over the years and it’s where he has the most laps, not to mention a lot of success.
That makes it a good measuring stick for his program.
Given the challenges of the 2023 season thus far and the amount of changes the team recently made trying to get back on track, it was a good time for that. To make it even better, Saturday was the Jimmy Spence Memorial. Spence was Feather’s great uncle.
- Date: June 24, 2023
- Event: Jimmy Spence Memorial
- Track: Winchester Speedway
- City, State: Winchester, VA
- Quick Stats: 25 cars, Qualifying 10th, Heat 3rd (3), Amain 4th (10)
Honoring Jimmy Spence
Feathers was slightly in disguise in the field of 25 cars that took to Winchester Speedway Saturday night for the Spence Memorial. That’s because the Winchester native’s super late model was sporting a tribute scheme to honor his great uncle, including the No.91 Spence made famous.
The night started off a bit average for Feathers. He timed 10th quick overall, then started and finished 3rd in his heat race. It wasn’t flashy but he was locked into a top ten starting spot and with the main event scheduled for 51 laps, there would be plenty of time to go to the front.
Feathers took the green from outside row five. After a dozen laps, he was still mired in 10th, treading water so to speak.
During the middle section of the feature, Feathers made his way into 8th and held that spot for fifteen laps before beginning to gain ground again. On lap 34, he cracked the top five, then briefly took 4th with fifteen laps remaining before dropping to 5th again.
As the race drew to a close, Feathers got one more shot at Kenny Moreland and wrestled the 4th spot away with three laps to go. He held on there for the checkered flag.
“It was a good night but my car probably wasn’t as good as where we finished. We got better as the night went but I think our tire choice, managing my stuff for a longer race and just giving the car what it wanted helped me move forward late in the race.“, Feathers said.
“We have made some progress but we still aren’t where we need to be. Good or bad, I put a lot of pressure on myself to perform. Like most teams, we need to run well to pay our bills.”
Following a lot of late nights in the shop recently working to turn their season around, Feathers indicated the team’s current plans are to sit out this weekend to reset, regroup and go over their equipment.
Tentative plans would be to return to action Saturday, July 8th at Port Royal Speedway in 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.
