Feathers claims "Fall Brawl"

WINCHESTER — Trever Feathers drove to his third Late Model win of the season in Saturday night's 40-lap "Fall Brawl" main event. Feathers pocketed $4,000 for his fifth overall Winchester feature win of the season.

Allen Brannon and Justin Weaver brought the field to green. Brannon would pace the field until Weaver took over on Lap 14 and started to build a healthy lead.

The final caution on Lap 17 proved to be the turning point. Feathers cleared Brannon on the restart and went after Weaver. As the laps wound down, Weaver and Feathers ran side-by-side and dodged lapped traffic before Feathers secured the lead on Lap 37. Weaver ran door-to-door with Feathers over the final three laps with Feathers squeaking out the win by a car length.

Brannon placed third, while Daryl Hills and Kyle Hardy rounded out the top five. Heat wins for the 22-car race went to Dale Hollidge, Weaver and Brannon.

In support class action, Rob Nichols earned his third win of the season in the 15-lap Pure Stock feature. He was followed by Doug Hoffman, Craig Parrill. Dylan Rutherford and Jonathan DeHaven.
