Felker Fast at Boyd
Tulsa, OK June27, 2015- 55 days after the last race was ran the Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget series presented by Total Comm and Boss Chassis was on track at Boyd Raceway for night one of the Texas Swing.
After roughly an hour rain delay track officials worked the Bull Ring surface making for an excellent action packed 3 heat races which saw John Ricketts, Travis Scott and Andrew
Felker picking up victories respectively.
The nights A-Feature would see Ricketts, and Felker bring the 20 car field to green. With Felker jumping out the early lead with current rookie contender Anton Hernandez jumping into the 2nd position. As the race would go past half
way Felker would quickly approach lap traffic riding the top of the 1/4 Bull Ring. The sole caution on the nights 25 lap a-feature came out just past the halfway mark as the 3C of Raven Culp would come to a stop between turn 3 and 4. Culp would re-fire and continue. On the restart Hernandez would get a good jump with Felker and try to make a move exiting turn 2 but would appear to run out of real-estate allowing the 04 of Kyle Jones to make the pass for second. The race was on but lap after lap Felker would pull away once amazing working lap traffic. when the checkered flag flew it would Felker winning followed by Kyle Jones and Anton Hernandez.
After the races when asked about the night Felker replied “This track was awesome, hats off to the whole track prep crew for sticking it out and letting us get this one in after the rain shower and all the fans for sticking around to watch the show. Track came out real good, it was a rim rider definitely a fun track. Kind of reminded me a little bit of Cowtown, miss that place be around down here but this was definitely a fun track, had fun getting around lap traffic and I’m just lucky enough to be driving this MelMark Pipe & Supply, Stanton Engines powered Boss Chassis. Just can’t thank all our sponsors enough.”
