Jason Feger won his heat and drew a fourth place starting spot for the Nourie Memorial Northern All Stars race at Fairbury American Legion Speedway on May 2, 2009. Thirty-six late models were on hand for the event.
After a week of rain, the speedway's track crew worked hard but couldn't get all of the ruts removed. No track would have held up with all the moisture from the previous week.
Feger started second row outside, infront of him on the pole of row one was Dennis Erb Jr. with Kevin Cole on the outside. Inside of the second row Gwas another Pierce car, Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin.
The late models flew across the rough track, at several points you could see all four tires off the track. On lap 18 Jason put a move on Erb in number three turn and slid underneath of him taking the lead. Erb would get close several times, but Feger found the smoother way around the track taking the forty lap feature. Grandpa would have been smiling ear to ear, I sure was.
It was Jason's first win at the historic speedway. Team Feger's crew was also rewarded for their hard work, with a big check and trophy to the crew chief Austin Feger. Thanks to Aftershock for the crew honors.
Brett, Kim and Kristi were besides themselves to have Jason pick up the win at their home track of Fairbury. They were most definately smiling ear to ear, their night was made and they celebrated till dawn.
Plus, a GIGANTIC KUDOS to the track and everyone involved in the Memorial event, they did an awesome job honoring their friend.
