We were at Farmer City last Friday and Sat for the second Illini 100. Track was FAST during qualifing. Jason went out late, unfortunately Jesse sent him out while Ryan U. was still out on the track. Jason spun on what he thought was his first lap, but it wasn't really cause Ryan was still timing. So Jason only took one more lap. Confused, we sort of was too. Anyway, Jason qualified 20th out of 55 cars, not great, but not horrible.
Heat recap from Dirtondirt.com: Outside front-row starter Brian Brian Birkhofer fought off a late charger from polesitter Steve Francis to win the 10-lapper. Birkhofer was slowed by lapped traffic heading for the white flag when Francis grabbed the lead. But Birkhofer answered the move, going back ahead before the frontrunners entered turn two. Fourth-starting Jason Feger got the third and final transfer spot in the caution-free prelim. Finish: Brian Birkhofer, Steve Francis, Jason Feger, Brandon Sheppard, Russ King, Kevin Weaver, Ted Loomis, Adam Mefford, Cory Daugherty.
Feature Clanton won, only two yellows. Feger started 14th and moved up to 8th. Track was fast up high, but hard to pass on.
