Inside Line Promotions – TULSA, Okla. (Sept. 30, 2014) – Andrew Felker scored his first career midget victory at Port City Raceway last Saturday during the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget Series event.

“It feels good, especially being back at the track where I grew up,” he said. “That’s where I ran every week for the first three or four years of racing micros.”

Felker, who estimated he had earned 40-to-50 micro sprint victories at the bullring, kicked off Saturday night by advancing from fourth to second place in his heat race.

“I went to the top in turns one and two on the start and got to second,” he said. “I tried to reel in Tyler (Thomas) for most of the race. I got to him on the last lap, but ran out of time to do much.”

That lined Felker up on the outside of the third row for the 25-lap main event.

“I jumped up to the top early,” he said. “The top was real slick to a pretty good-sized ledge. You had to be really careful because the car wanted to bicycle.”

Felker quickly advanced into second place before he started searching for a way to drive around the leader.

“I couldn’t really get my momentum up so I started following him on the bottom,” he said. “I couldn’t find a way to get around him down there so I went back to the top. It took about four laps to get my momentum up and I got enough just to clear him. Then I went back down to the bottom for the rest of the race.”

Felker took the lead just after the midpoint of the race as he cruised to his second straight victory. It marked his third win of the season.

He is scheduled to race this Thursday through Saturday at Tri-City Speedway in Pontoon Beach, Ill., during the Gold Crown Midget Nationals with the USAC Honda National Midget Series.
