Trever Feathers wins super late model feature at Hagerstown Speedway in wire-to-wire fashion

HAGERSTOWN —  The only hindrance Trever Feathers seemingly faced on Saturday night at in the Thomas All Things Automotive Super Late Model feature event at Hagerstown Speedway was lap traffic. The Winchester, Va., native cruised to a heat victory, putting himself on the pole for the 25-lap race where he obliterated the field, winning by 7.65 seconds over Andy Anderson in wire-to-wire fashion. 

It’s Feathers’ third win of the year and first at Hagerstown Speedway since 2014. His first two wins came at Winchester Speedway in Winchester, Va., where he races the most because of proximity from his race shop just a few minutes away.

“We’ve just been working hard in the shop, trying to get every advantage we can,” said Feathers, who wheeled his No. 20 Barry Wright Race Cars late model to his third career win at the speedway. “We picked up a half-second there during the week, and that sure makes a difference.”

Gary Stuhler (three wins in eight races), who finished third and reclaims the top spot in the Hagerstown Speedway points standings at 582 points, ran second for most of the night. Stuhler holds an 18-point lead over Kyle Lee, who placed seventh on Saturday.

There was one caution — on Lap 3 — where the rest of the field had another shot at hanging with Feathers. But another jolting restart put it all for naught. Feathers moves into 13th in points, 288 back of first, in just his fourth start.

Feathers also became a father about a month ago in the birth of his son, Collin Feathers.

“It’s been the craziest thing in my life,” he said. 

Rodney Walls came fourth, followed by Kenny Moreland in fifth. Marvin Winters, who sits third in the standings and 22 points back of the lead, Lee, Jason Miller, Reese Masiello and Brad Omps round out the top 10.

Tyler Emory won the late model sportsman, Craig Parrill won the purestock, Dylan Rutherford won the hobby stock and Allen Brannon won the crate late model.
