CARL JUNCTION, Mo. (Nov. 12, 2013) – Andrew Felker has one final day to prepare before departing for his longest road trip of the season.
Felker and his team leave on Wednesday toward the West Coast to wrap up the Honda USAC National Dirt Midget Series with a pair of events this month, beginning on Thursday with the 46th edition of the three-day Western World Championships at Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Ariz.
“Hopefully it will be a late night in the shop tonight and then load everything into Tyler Thomas’ rig in Tulsa tomorrow,” he said. “I can fit both of my cars in there and he can fit both of his cars in there. I think it is 17 or 18 hours to the track.”
This marks the first time that Felker will compete at Canyon Speedway Park, which is a semi-banked, 3/8-mile oval.
“I’ve watched quite a bit of video on it,” he said. “When the track is good it’s two-lane racing. I’ve also seen video where it’s locked-down follow the leader.”
Felker said his ultimate goal is to claim the $7,500-to-win prize on Saturday night.
“The first two nights I’ll have to learn the track a little bit,” he said. “I’d love to put it in the top five, top 10 every night and then hopefully be competing up front for a win on Saturday.”
Felker enters the event eighth in the Honda USAC National Dirt Midget Series championship standings.
