Eldora Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 10:50 am

June 19th Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, OH) 31 Modifieds. Drew a 71 and started 10th in the second heat race. A surprising heavy race track made it hard for passing but I still managed to climb my way to a fourth place finish. The track didn’t change a whole lot from the heats, the speeds were about the same but the groove had moved up on the race track making for a little more passing. I started 11th in the feature and knew there was no time to wait around. I quickly picked off one car at a time and after sixteen laps I found myself passing for second place. A late red flag with two laps to go bunched the field back together. Eldora leaves laps cars in the spot they were running so I restarted in the fourth position with a lap car in-between first and second. Unfortunately I felt like I had the car to win the race but the lap car did not help the situation. And one more lap wouldn’t have help either because coming out of turn four on final lap my motor had broke and I had to coasted to the finish line. I was able to get by the second place car and the lap car in one turn and just didn’t have enough time to catch the leader. Strong finish though and still maintained the points lead at Eldora.

Dream Week Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 9:02 am

June 9th Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, OH) My Dream week started on Wednesday as Travis Pastrana and I teamed together for a great charity event at the ‘Gilette Fusion ProGlide Prelude to the Dream’. It was an awesome opportunity to be a part of this event with Pastrana and Red Bull. Travis and I got a chance to test the day before at Waynesfield Raceway Park to help get him comfortable with the racecar. He was a natural from the start and I felt really comfortable with him behind the wheel. Eldora is a totally different animal then the track we tested at but Travis was up for the challenge and really surprised a lot of people. His ability to have great throttle control and able to steer his way out of trouble made him seem like no rookie to the sport. The end result didn’t look as good on paper as he did in the car when on the final lap of the race a rock had hit the emergency kill switch causing the car to lose power before crossing the finish line. Although Travis is a fierce competitor he understands that these cars take a lot of seat time to really master but he was still extremely happy and very thankful for his opportunity.

I would personally like to thank Travis Pastrana, Red Bull, and Eldora Speedway for letting me take part in the great event!

TRAVIS PASTRANA, (Finished 23rd):
What did you think of your first dirt Late Model race?
“It was good, but it started out really rough. I came into the first turn and everyone turned left really hard to go to the inside. I did a quick spin and got back going. It was cool, though, because I was running with Ricky (Carmichael) most of the time, so I was either right behind him or in front of him the whole time. And then … you see this tire mark I put there on the front of his car? I got some good air getting launched off the front of Ricky’s car. Then, the last few laps was actually where I started feeling good in the car. I really like the restarts, where they put everyone close together, where I actually was able to start picking off some people. Still, I was way in the back, but I felt really good. The car was great. It took me a long time to get it figured out. I started out using high lines, low lines, until I finally found a groove that started working for me with about 20 laps to go. I definitely want to practice a little before I come back. But, definitely, this is really cool.”

June 11th-13th Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, OH) Qualified 69th out of 104 entries with a 16.791. Not my best attempted but after making a lot of changes to the racecar I had little time to figure things out. I started 12th in the fourth heat and had a great run up to 6th until I jumped the cushion on both ends causing me to fall back to an 8th place finish. After all the heats were completed the rain had begun causing Eldora to cancel the rest of the program and reschedule for Sunday morning. I was to start 10th in the c-main with 6 cars transferring. Unfortunately the first turn of the c-main was all I lasted as my car suffered a lot of damage from a six car pileup. Not a good way to end the very long weekend but hopefully we can regroup and get things back together soon.

Jon Henry Racing Teams With Travis Pastrana and Red Bull for Gillette Fusion ProGlide “Prelude to the Dream”

ADA, OH (6/2/10) – One of the most exciting entrants in the 2010 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Prelude to the Dream, Travis Pastrana, will be teaming with one of the most exciting drivers in dirt Late Model racing, Jon Henry.

It was recently announced that five-time United States amateur motorcross champion Travis Pastrana would be participating in the 2010 Gillette Fusion ProGlide Prelude to the Dream, but what wasn’t set in stone was whose car Pastrana would be wheeling in the June 9th spectacular at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway. The details have now been finalized and Pastrana will be piloting a Red Bull sponsored Rocket Chassis owned by Ada, Ohio’s Jon Henry.

“This is an unbelievable opportunity for him,” said Henry, the defending Sunoco American Late Model Series Champion. “Given his talent and everything he has accomplished, I’m sure he will be a quick learner in his first ever stint behind the wheel of a dirt Late Model.”

The pairing of Pastrana – the most successful competitor in the history of the X-Games’ freestyle motorcross and an iconic New Year’s Eve daredevil – with Henry could not have been better scripted as their likeable personalities and no-holds-barred driving styles make this combination a match made in Heaven. Pastrana’s Prelude ride, a Red Bull Racing #199, will be donning a sleek wrap courtesy of Wide Open Graphics in Lima, Ohio.

“I’m not just excited for Travis, I’m also excited for our race team,” Henry said. “We’re hoping this exposure might be a step in the right direction for other great opportunities.”

In addition to serving as a mentor for Pastrana, Henry will also be racing his own UMP Modified at the Prelude to the Dream. Henry, who leads the current Eldora Speedway UMP Modified point standings, won the Mod portion of the event in 2008.

Eldora Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 10:35 am

May 30th- Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, OH) ALMS 36 cars. Drew a 152 and qualified 5th fastest in group number three with a 16.8. Start 5th in the third heat race and finish 4th. The track was fast in the heat and our motor was getting warmer than I would like. I figured the track would slow down and the temperature would be a little cooler out which would hopefully help. I had to start all the way back in 15th but didn’t waste much time back there as I slowly worked my way into the top ten. A caution had waved with five to go and my temp gauge was maxed out. I waited till the green flag waved to see if it would drop down so I could finish the race but there wasn’t enough change so I decided to pulled off. The motor wasn’t pushing any water out so it might not of been as hot as the gauge was showing. We’re going to try a few things this week to help keep everything a little cooler as we prepare for the dream week at Eldora.

Oakshade Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 10:34 am

May 29th- Oakshade Raceway (Wauseon, OH) ALMS 40 cars. Drew a 32. Started 5th in the second heat race and before lap one was completed I had already taken the lead. I went on to lead all ten laps for the heat race win. I redrew the number one starting position for the second week in a row. The race track continued to slow down throughout the night and made for a difficult tire decision. I choose to go softer hoping there would be enough cautions to keep it cooled down. When the feature started I was able to maintain my lead for the first several laps until I started to fad. I was unable to hold my lead and with only a couple cautions in the race my tire had given up. I was still able to secure I nice 3rd place finish.
