Feger Tops Daugherty


Feger Holds Off Robinson at Indiana’s Daugherty Speedway for His Second DIRTcar Summer Nationals Victory of the Season


BOSWELL, Ind. – July 1, 2015 – He’s known as the Highside Hustler and Jason Feger lived up to it on Wednesday night at Daugherty Speedway, using the top side to hold off Kent Robinson and earn his second DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory of the season.

Feger, of Bloomington, Ill., led the first 29 laps before Robinson moved up to Feger’s line, ran him down in traffic and slid in front on lap 30. Feger charged back on the top and reclaimed the top spot on the next lap and held on to win the 40-lapper for the 13th DIRTcar Summer Nationals victory of his career.


“You were able to race all over and kind of move around,” said Feger, the 2010 DIRTcar Summer Nationals champion. “I could just kind of roll in that top groove there and didn’t have to get up on the berm … just rolling the black and it worked out.”


While Feger used the victory to climb back into the championship picture, leader Bobby Pierce had his hands full throughout the feature with second-place Billy Moyer Jr., who eventually charged up behind Robinson to finish third last night. Pierce and Frank Heckenast Jr. rounded out the top five after race-long battles with each other.


The DIRTcar Summer Nationals tour invades LaSalle (Ill.) Speedway on Thursday night followed on Friday by Fayette County Speedway in Brownstown, Ill.
