Lance Hot Streak at Peoria
PEORIA, Ill. - Sept. 1. Having not lost at Peoria Speedway since the Summernationals race in July, Steve Lance Jr.
knew he had a challenge as the Northern All-Stars rolled into the track Thursday.
With a star-studded field on hand, Jason Feger
jumped to the high side as the green flew and out-gunned Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame member Billy Moyer going
into turn one, but Moyer pulled even on the front stretch. Feger then rim-rode through turns one
and two and dove to the bottom to take the lead. Moyer continuned to work the bottom, but Lance blew by on
the top coming out of turn two on lap 10 to take second.

Feger began to encounter lapped traffic on lap 11
and Lance closed in. Lance used lapped traffic to pin Feger in as Feger went to the bottom on lap 17, giving
Lance the lead. A caution for Donny Walden on lap 19 bunched the field up and cleared the track Feger
immediately challenged Lance and took the lead back on lap 21 as they raced down the back stretch. Moyer moved
past a fading Lance, who was smoking with engine problems, on lap 25. Moyer ended up second,
with Kevin Weaver passing Lance for third on the last lap.

“Those guys put up a great fight”, said Feger.
“It’s hard to keep a streak going but Steve had it going on tonight and any time 21 is behind you, you get
worried. That was a great race and the track was in good shape. We love running here and wish we could do it
