Jason Feger (25) works on Billy Moyer Jr. (21jr) en route to victory.
What won the race: Inheriting the lead when Billy Moyer had a flat tire with seven laps remaining, fifth-starting Jason Feger of Bloomington, Ill., led the rest of the way for his fourth straight victory in the Paducah's USA World 50. Feger earned $5,000 in the MARS DIRTcar Series event while Moyer, who took the lead from his namesake son on the 11th lap, ended up seventh in a 23-car race with a half-dozen finishers.
Quotable: "No. 1, I like the place. I loved it the first time I came here. I've got a good setup here. It fits my driving style. You can charge the corners really hard," Feger said. "I don't know, for whatever reason, it fits me really good, and we've had a lot of success here."
Key notes: Half of Jason Feger's eight MARS victories have come at Paducah. ... Fewer than half the 24 starters made it to halfway and just seven restarted with 14 laps remaining. ... Randy Roth hit the frontstretch wall on lap 36. ... Billy Moyer Jr. pulled in running second on lap 30. ... Third-running Shannon Babb had a lap-22 flat tire. ... Outside front-row starter Jason Papich rode the wall briefly in turn two, drawing a lap-18 yellow. ... Leroy Johnson and Allen Murray tangled on lap 15. ... Murray had a flat tire to bring out a caution one lap earlier. ... Charles LaPlant got into the wall for a lap-13 yellow. ... Rick Dubuque scratched from the feature. ... Paducah kicked off a three-race MARS weekend that continues at Tri-City and I-55. ... The USA World 50 also carried the name Chris Smith Memorial, which is usually Paducah's UMP DIRTcar Summernationals event. ... This year's Summernationals race was rained out.
On the move: Hunter Rasdon of Jonesboro, Ark., started 23rd and finished fifth.
