The 14-year-old from Wisconsin Rapids, Wisc., was particularly pleased with the brand-new, turn-key IHRA Summit SuperSeries Junior Dragster, built by American Race Cars and featuring a unique paint scheme by Jerron Settles of Imagine That Customs and a Computech DataMaxx Jr. data logger and LCD display. “It’s a beautiful car. I love the paint job on it,” Feit said. “The DataMaxx is amazing and it’s a super nice car.
