A brief history...

Three Generations, The first

Feger's Grandpa, Ron "Red" Griffin began racing in the early 1950's in Central Illinois. He always found a car to race, even in service in Ft. Leonardwood and Ft. Riley. Red drove cars for Don Erlenbush, Hal Rotramel, Cleve Smith of SouthTown Towing, and others before owning his #25 Mustang. Red and his brothers, Bob and Ed built the mustang. Red's career ended after a violent crash in 1974 while racing on Champaign, IL 1/2 mile horse track. Grandpa's car went through a wooden fence, he suffered major injuries to his leg and arm from the wood.

The second generation

Uncle Rocky began racing at the age of 15 in 1976 as a Sportsman. Rocky also raced late models and modifieds on tracks throughout Central Illinois. Jason would tag along and help his uncle when possible.

The Third generation

Grandpa Griffin bought a beat up, abused sportsman car when Jason was 18. Two nights of racing, smoke pours from the car - UGH - blown motor. The next week Grandpa under went major heart surgery. Since that time, Feger has figured out how to fund his own racing program. It took six years, but finally, in 2002 Jason bought a used late model, plus a motor that was over a decade old (a Rhyne motor!). Thanks to friends loaned pick-ups, and an open trailer Feger was able to start pursuing his dream of racing dirt late models. Since that time Feger has steadily built the team year by year.

Grandpa Griffin's entire life was about family and racing. He told Jason, you might not have the money the other guys do, so use your head, build it yourself, figure out how to get things done, race smart. He always believed in Jason's driving ability. We are positive he's looking down and is smiling at what the team has accomplished. LEARN MORE ABOUT JASON FEGER,

Crew:
Devin Shickel

Nickname:
Kasey Kahne

 

Devin Shickel, son of dirt late model driver Eddie Shickel, nephew of Frank Jr and grandson of driver Frank Sr. As a youngster, Devin has been able to share in his family's accomplishments on the track. Since he was 12, he's been a part of the Feger Racing family. In Illinois, at the time 12 year olds couldn't get into the pits, so Devin had to be satisfied watching in the stands. As soon as he could, Devin was in the pits helping Jason. He dedicates long hours to maintenance and work in the shop with Jason. Day and night, it's Devin and Jason getting the job done to keep the team running. Devin hits the road to every race.
