CARL JUNCTION, Mo. (March 18, 2014) – Andrew Felker is very familiar with Port City Raceway.
“My first five years of racing, that’s where I raced on Saturday nights,” he said. “I’ve won three nonwing nationals. I’ve won more than 50 races there.”
The bullring in Tulsa, Okla., is set to host its first-ever midget event this Saturday and Sunday as the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series visits for the Turnpike Challenge.
“This will be the first midget show there,” he said. “That’s where a lot of us have grown up running micros at. The biggest thing is we’re going to know what the track will do and how it reacts to stuff.”
Felker was part of a group of drivers who tested at the track last fall and he believes the racing will be similar to a micro event.
“It’s going to be real tight racing,” he said. “It’s a small track with a micro, so midgets will be really tight. It should be some good racing.”
Felker’s goal is nothing shy of landing on the podium both nights.
“It’s not every day you get to go back and race where you grew up racing,” he said. “I have some high expectations.”
