Pontoon Beach, ILUMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals Race 9: Feger Hustles to Tri City Win

June 24, 2009 — Jason Feger lived up to the moniker “The Highside Hustler” on Wednesday night during the 40-Lap “Hell Tour” A-main event at Tri City (Ill.) Speedway.

Blistering the top side of the banked 3/8th mile oval, Feger held off charges from the likes of Scott James, Billy Moyer, and finally Randy Korte to claim victory. “We’ve been working our tails off and hard work pays off,” commented Feger. “The car was real good all night.”

Feger’s first “Hell Tour” win was made more memorable due to the fact his mother, who was in attendance, was celebrating her 50th birthday at the track with her son. “It’s really special to win on my Mom’s birthday,” he said.

Korte, who has been one of the most consistent drivers on tour recently, settled for a runner up finish after climbing from his 9th place starting spot. ” Car was good, I just had to stay patient,” a smiling Korte said. “If we ever figured the qualifying out I think we can win some races.”

The 2006 UMP DIRTcar Late Model National Champion has been moving up the UMP DIRTcar Summer Nationals Rankings as of late, but the absence of a win on his resume for the year still remains his focus.

“I want to win a race,” said Korte. “I know its good finishing in the top five, but I’m a racer, and it’s killing me to not win a race.”

Moyer finished third, a spot up from where he started the 40-lap main event. Running the low line early the dirt late model legend found the high side was just too fast.

“You just had to slow way down to stay in the moisture down at the bottom,” he said. ” We’ll learn and go to the next one”.
