Ricky Thornton Jr. Wins from 14th in All-Tech Raceway Visit
Busy Week at Bulls Gap Awaits
MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (04/11/23) – Starting 14th on the feature grid was no challenge for Ricky Thornton Jr. on Saturday night at All-Tech Raceway. He stormed through the field to register the $20,000 victory in the inaugural event for the Hunt the Front Super Dirt Series aboard his SSI Motorsports / Hoker Trucking No. 20RT Dyno One Inc. / Excel Floor Covering / Sub-Surface of Indiana/ Longhorn Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
“I’m really loving All-Tech (Raceway) these days. It’s a fun place,” laughed Thornton Jr., who also picked up a Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win at the facility back in February. “We struggled a week ago on the final night at Wheatland (Lucas Oil Speedway) and then we struggled at Volunteer Speedway on Thursday night, but I think we found the issue and it showed on Saturday at All-Tech because this car was a rocket ship in the feature.
“We’re heading back to Volunteer Speedway this week for three nights of racing, and with what we learned last week and what we found on the car, I think we’ll be better.”
Ricky kicked off last week’s action on Thursday with his first-ever visit to the 4/10-mile confines of Volunteer Speedway (Bulls Gap, Tenn.) to pilot the SSI Motorsports No. 20RT Late Model in the second running of the Kyle Larson Late Model Challenge.
With 45 Late Models on the grounds, Thornton raced his way into the main event via his B-Main after missing a transfer spot in his heat race. Starting the $20,000-to-win A-Main in 21st, Ricky was an early retiree from the 50-lap affair and was credited with a 24th-place finish.
Friday found the team in Florida competing against a field of 40 Hunt the Front Super Dirt Series entries at All-Tech Raceway (Lake City, Fla.) for the weather shortened Southbound Throwdown.
Ricky qualified seventh-fastest in his group before placing fourth in his heat race. Wheeling from the 14th-starting position in the feature, Thornton Jr. blasted ahead of leader Shane Clanton on the 40th circuit and led the remainder of the 50-lapper to claim his fifth win of the season and a $20,000 prize.
He took the checkers 3.113 seconds ahead of Clanton, Mike Marlar, Tim McCreadie, and Devin Moran.
Full results from the events are available at www.VolunteerSpeedway.com and www.HTFSeries.com .
This week has RTJ slated to return to Volunteer Speedway for a trio of race nights. Action opens on Tuesday with the $10,000-to-win XR Workin’ Man Series Spring Thaw Warm-Up event. Then on Friday and Saturday he’ll compete in the XR Super Series Spring Thaw, which includes twin $5,000-to-win programs on Friday and a $100,000-to-win finale on Saturday.

“After getting the car banged up in the opener at Pevely (Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55) last week it was nice to bounce back with a win this week at Peoria (Speedway). Had a great race there and got the job done,” Unzicker said. “Thank you to my wife, son, crew, and all our sponsors for making it possible. We’ll carry this momentum into the upcoming weekend.”

Jason Feger Tunes Up for ’23 with Farmer City Raceway Win
Davenport Speedway and 34 Raceway Await
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (04/11/23) – Jason Feger was finally able to outrun Mother Nature to get his 2023 campaign underway on Friday night, and not only did he outrun the weather, but he also outran the field at Farmer City Raceway to bank the victory aboard his Titan Industries No. 25 Hoker Trucking / Remtek Enterprises / Longhorn Chassis / Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model.
Jason was also in contention for the win on Saturday night in Peoria Speedway’s Garry Swibold Memorial until a late flat tire erased his chances at victory.
“Glad that the weather finally let us race. It was a fun race of sliders with Bob Gardner on Friday night at Farmer City (Raceway), and we came out on top,” Feger said. “We were swapping the lead with (Ryan) Unzicker on Saturday at Peoria (Speedway) until we had a flat right rear with four laps remaining it. We changed it and rejoined the back of the back and rebounded to sixth.
“We’re looking forward to heading to Iowa this weekend for three nights of racing. Thank you to everyone who supports us.”
After losing a handful of early season events to Mother Nature, the 2023 season kicked off for Jason Feger on Friday afternoon at Farmer City (Ill.) Raceway aboard his Titan Industries No. 25 Super Late Model.
Following the fourth-fastest qualifying effort, Feger outdueled Bob Gardner in his heat race to pick up the win. Overtaking race-long pacesetter Gardner on lap 20 of the feature, Jason led the final six circuits to capture his first win of the season and the $1,000 payday. He finished 0.75 seconds ahead of Gardner with Mike Spatola, Tommy Sheppard Jr., and Logan Moody completing the top-five finishers.
In a field of 22 Late Models on Saturday at Peoria (Ill.) Speedway for the Garry Swibold Memorial, Jason’s second-place finish in his heat race positioned him on the second row for the $5,098-to-win A-Main.
Despite suffering a late flat tire while challenging Ryan Unzicker for the lead, Feger charged from the tail of the field in the 50-lapper to salvage a sixth-place finish.
The team will return to action on Thursday with the Lucas Oil Midwest Late Model Racing Association (MLRA) opener at Davenport (Iowa) Speedway followed up by the Slocum 50 on Friday and Saturday at 34 Raceway (West Burlington, Iowa).
