Feelin' like Superman on Saturday...Clark Kent on Sunday.
With all the positive talk on Saturday after heat race #5, we were all pretty stoked for Sunday's 100 lapper. Jason was moving to the front and all was going well until about lap 34 when the right rear decided it didn't want to play anymore, threw a conniption fit and made a hasty departure.
After a lot of naughty words and a scramble to put on fresh rubber, Jason rejoined the field at the tail and started a march to the front. When all was said and done, Team Feger salvaged a 14th place finish. We need to find out where Jimmy Mars gets his tires from, his go flat in victory lane.
While fourteenth was not the result the guys were hoping for, some good things did come from their trip to The Dirt Track World Championship.
After Saturday, EVERYBODY had taken notice and quite a few "names" in the business were more than impressed with Feger's heat race performance.
Racing with the caliber of talent that was present this weekend is still a big learning curve and Team Feger paid some dues.
Before the flat the #25 was fast and headed in the right direction and even though some of the big dogs still mispronounce Feger, (as long as I can remember there never has been an 's' on the end) they are having to take notice of the storm that's brewing here in the midwest.
The Feger/Pierce/Rhyne/Advanced combination has become a force to be reckoned with and as soon as the rocky relationship with R/R tires gets smoothed over ...
It will be 'GAME ON.'
I have to give a shout out to long time fans Pete, Chris and Mike Portman for watching over the Florida Chapter for us...looking forward to popping some cold ones and telling some lies at East Bay.
