WHAAAAAA.....*POP *POP *POP *POP*
That is the best way to describe how the motor was sounding at the end of last night"s feature at Tri-City Speedway.
When the pill draw put the #25 car third row outside in the heat, Jason went to work and won the race by about 10 car lengths. It was quite a show as on lap seven, Feger was in second almost a full straightaway behind the leader...gotta love that Rhyne horsepower.
At the start of the $2000 to win 30 lap feature, Jason took the point with Randy "KING KONG" Korte doing everything possible to get by Feger. With the top groove being sketchy at best, both drivers were doing a tightrope act in a windstorm. Around lap 15 the battery was failing and the motor started popping down the straights, the saving grace was "Kong" had broke something in the rear suspension.
Even with both race cars being somewhat hobbled, the two were side by side off of turn four coming to the checkers. I guess half a Rhyne motor trumps a wounded gorilla as Team Feger picked up their 20th feature win of the season.
With a new battery, Team Feger is headed to Lincoln Speedway for tonight"s $2000 to win Monster Midwest show...bring your blankets.
Comment of the night goes to Jason. When I told him to remember that he was points racing and to not take too many chances, he responded with a confused look and said "points racing...what's that?"
Feger wins at Lincoln.
A case of "toodamnwetandcolditus" kept us home tonight but word from the track is that Team Feger captured their 21st feature win of the season.This also marks Team Feger's 8th MMS victory as well.
From what I've been told, "Clawhammer" made it's debut in fine fashion setting fast time and winning the first feature right out of the box.
Keep that momentum rolling guys...
