Winner Jason Feger (25) gets under Michael Kloos (6k) at Peoria.
What won the race: After slipping back to third early, polesitter Jason Feger of Bloomington, lll., went back to the front at Peoria Speedway and took the checkers comfortably ahead of fifth-starting Ryan Unzicker to win the Jon Hamilton Memorial at Peoria Speedway. Feger earned $5,000 in the season-ending 100-lapper at Peoria.
Quotable: "It's been a rough month. We've been beat up pretty bad this last month, some bad luck and stuff," winner Jason Feger said. "I always run good here. ... it seemed like we were better on the long runs and the car was really good wherever I needed to go."
Key notes: Jason Feger, who lapped all but five competitors, became a four-time race winner; he also won the Illinois State Championship in 2010, '11 and '12. ... Runner-up Ryan Unzicker took the second spot from Billy Drake on lap 89 after a lengthy side-by-side battle. ... Michael Kloos of Trenton, Ill., led early but lost the point to Billy Drake in traffic. ... Feger went under Drake a few laps later to take command. ... Donny Walden was running in the top five when his smoking car slowed on the 12th lap; he ended up 10th. ... A frontstretch pileup slowed action on the fifth lap. ... A retiring Mike Mullvain made his final career start, finishing 11th. ... Ray Guss Jr. was also making his final appearance at Peoria; he drove Jason Wagner's No. J12. ... Mike Garland drew two cautions in the first half of the race, including when he smashed the wall on lap 46.
On the move: Justin Reed of Quincy, lll., started 14th and finished eighth.
Winner's sponsors: Feger's Billy Moyer Victory Race Car is powered by a Rhyne Competition Engine and carries sponsorship from Allstar Performance, Cheap Cars, Griffin Sign Shop, Floyd's Waste Disposal, Pro Tire, Mulligan's Renegade Fuels, Titan Steel, Wehrs Machine and Racing Products.
