The May 13 Diamond Mountain Speedway car races drew in a large crowd of fans desperate for summer and eager for the roar of their favorite cars on the track.

One of the DMS sports modified racers, Bob Feller, is among those excited for racing season.

Feller said he’s always been into cars, but he was first interested in racing when he was introduced to Fred Kresge 30 years ago. After Feller met Kresge, a man he now races against, he was inspired to build his first racing car.

Feller said one of his most memorable achievements made throughout his time behind the wheel was racing against Mike Skinner who later continued his career to compete in NASCAR races.

In a majority of his 30 years of off-and-on racing, Feller could be seen behind the wheel stock cars. However, he will be trying his hand with the sports modified class for the 2017 season.

Regarding goals for this season, Feller is looking forward to the challenges and overall experiences tied to racing in a new car and in a new class. His main objective is to enjoy the ride.
