Volusia Speedway Florida (2/19/2011) - Tonight was the final night of the six night volley for Jon Henry Racing Ltd. Henry went into this night with nothing to lose. He has kept the faithful #15 running all week but tonight was where loss of metal was acceptable for the cost of doing business. Henry went into hot laps testing the track readying his ride for the qualification race. Henry entered qualifications with a time of 16.752 placing him 9th in the first heat race. Henry ran hard and placed 8th in the heat race and would start 9th for the B-main. Henry came around on lap number two and struggled to get his car to turn. Henry realized he could not continue and pulled into the pit withdrawing from the race. “I have been trying to learn the car all week and we have been chasing changes on the car for better performance. I am ready to set my car adjustments and get things back to normal for my home race circuit. Henry said. “I have learned a lot here, but more than anything, I have learned I need to boost my racing program to afford better tires” Henry said in a final interview at the Volusia Speedway.

Volusia Night #5

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 12:09 am

Volusia Speedway Florida (2/18/2011) - This is the 5th night of Jon Henry Racing and his #15 late model. With only one more night of racing left there is a little bit of disappointment but winning is relative when you consider Jon Henry raced among the best in the country with a very limited budget and resources. Thankful to his current supporters for helping him compete, his team needs infused with more support and investments to win. “It has been a challenge and a humbling experience to have made it through all five nights with my car, while a little beat up, is still running strong” Henry said. On this fifth night, Henry qualified 10th in the sixth heat race and advanced to 5th but faded back to a 7th place finish. Henry then came back out for the fifth straight night in the B-main to start in the 8th position. Henry did the best he could and held on to a 9th place finish in the B-main. “There is no better training ground than on the race track. Yeah, I may not be winning the heats or qualifying for the main event, but I am finishing everything I have started and we are happy with that” Henry said in an interview after the race.

Volusia Speedway Florida (2/16/2011) - It was late model night number 3 for Jon Henry Racing Ltd. and there were 76 cars present. It was clear these professional drivers are settling into their comfort zones because the speeds were incredible. Henry has found his own comfort zone and continues to work the track to his favor. Henry took to the track for qualifications with his faithful #15 late model, a hardened warrior that received considerable attention from the previous night’s battles. Henry qualified with a time of 17.341 which started him in 7th place of the first heat race. “The track was fast and the drivers are settling in on it” said Henry. “Smooth is fast, and by that I will be aggressive while maintaining control.” Henry finished the heat race in 6th place carrying him to the B-main for the third night in a row of the late model races. Henry’s position in the B-main was 5th and he displayed dominance right from the start. All of the drivers were apparently feeling the pressure from each other as they tried to push their late model war colors ahead of each other. Henry was no different, he competed with a fervor that was smooth and fast. He fell back one position in the B-main finishing in 6th place among some of the most talented drivers in the dirt racing circuit. “I am humbled every time I race, the competition and comradely between the racers is something I wish I could share with all my supporters” Henry said.

Volusia Night #2

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 1:33 pm

Volusia Speedway Florida (2/15/11) - The night started off with excitement as the talented late model drivers were running hard and getting into the zone for competition. Because there were over 70 cars at the Volusia Speedway, Henry took to the track for the first time this night in a combined hot lap qualification run. The result of his qualification time put him at 10th position where he finished 6th place in the heat. It wasn’t without some excitement though as he and #28 Dennis Erb Jr. battled for time throughout the qualification run. On the final lap when the checkered flag was out both Henry and the #28 car came past the finish line closer than the hundredth of a second that separated them and continued into turn one where #28 hit the left rear side of Henry flattening his tire. Henry drove his embattled #15 late model back to the pits where his pit crew was able to repair the car back to race condition for the B-main event. “I should have put some more distance between #28 and myself right from the start,” Henry said as he reflected on the tight qualification run. As usual, Henry stayed positive and got into his car ready for the B-main giving his trademark smile and wave as he disembarked onto the track. He was stacked on the pole at the number four position and knew this would be an aggressive run. The cars left the pit and Henry gave the #15 the indication he was ready to run which the crowd saw as soon as the green flag waved and the engine roared. The first five laps went without incident except for minor bumps the #15 is used to, but on lap six Henry came around turn one into turn two and got caught up in a traffic situation that could not be avoided. He tried to evade the eminent collision with his seemingly fateful competitor driving the #28 car which Henry rear ended. The cars became entangled and could not be separated whereby the track crew had to offer assistance. Luckily neither driver was hurt but it took Henry out of the B-main because of the damage to his car. “This is what it means to race” said Henry. “I didn’t intend to hit Dennis, but sometimes there is nothing that you can do. We will get my faithful yet scarred #15 back into shape and return tomorrow to give it our best.” Anyone interested in seeing the video releases should visit www.jonhenryracing.com.

Volusia Night #1

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 1:13 pm

Volusia Speedway, Florida (2/14/11) - The races that were scheduled on February 13th for Jon Henry Racing at the Ocala Florida speedway had to be withdrawn due to a broken axle. Henry’s team spent the entire day leading up to night #1 working feverishly to get the new axle in place and adjusted. When the time came for Henry to take to the track the car had received several new or replacement parts which made it feel a little different than he was used to. Despite all of this adversity, Jon took to the tacky, smooth race track in the hot laps with aggressive testing to see how the car would hold up so quick adjustments could be made for better performance.

“The car has so many new parts that it will take me a while to get a feel for which parts need to be tweaked,” Henry stated. Henry went to out on the hot laps and quickly recognized some adjustments but there was very little time before he was called back out to the track for the qualification race. Team Henry went to work on the adjustments because while Jon is experienced enough to work through most troubles, he is racing against some of the most experienced dirt racing legends. After adjustments were made, Henry raced to the qualification with fire and desire placing 8th which put him in the B-main. For his first night racing, it is not unexpected that he has performed so well despite the adversity. Henry returned to the pit for some final adjustments by his dedicated pit crew and prepared mentally for the next race. When the time came, Henry confidently climbed back into his car with a smile on his face indicating he was ready to go. The cars lined up and Henry was in the 10th place ready to give the other drivers a run for the feature but even with the good attitude and aggressive competition it wasn’t in the cards. Henry placed 8th in the B-main which put him just beyond the needed place to move on into the feature.

These races are important to Henry because they offer him a chance to get his car adjusted and settle into the seat for when his determined race season starts back in the greater Ohio area. This flies in the face of most of those here because as we said, they are here from all over the country to win the purse and they bring with them their incredible budgets to chase that win. Henry on the other hand is competing against them giving the legends a run for their talent while at the same time making his pre-season adjustments. Henry said, “I am just glad to be here and to race against the best late model drivers in the country. It is more important to me to be a good ambassador for my supporters and affiliates.” One thing is for sure, Henry is definitely a force to be reckoned with as he does not let those other drivers have any slack with skill and relentless driving.

Volusia, Florida (2/13/2011) - The Road to Volusia was paved with dedicated effort from Team JHR right from the start. On February 9th the University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH) asked Henry to drive their back up number two (#02) modified in a competitive manner against such great drivers as Clint Boyer, Ken Schrader, Kenny Wallace, Austin Dillon and some of the best modified drivers in the country. Henry agreed to slide into the seat and drive the UNOH modified in this harsh but inspiring competitive race. On February 9th Henry took the wheel of the #02 modified and placed 21st out of 77 drivers who were all vying for the win. On February 10th UNOH again asked Henry to wheel the #02 modified in a race that pitted his skill against the professional NASCAR drivers that race these dirt races leading up to the Daytona 500. Henry placed 5th out of 82 drivers including those who are considered professional drivers in the racing industry. All of the pre-Volusia excitement that came as a result of Henry’s quest to drive UNOH’s #02 modified to a win culminated on February 11th during lap two of the race. It was during this lap that Henry ran into some trouble in turn two and the modified rolled up on the right side two wheels. Henry tried to regain control of the modified so as to not hit any other drivers but it was without success as he hit Austin Dillon and then continued on full speed hitting the wall almost completely head on resulting in a Did Not Finish (DNF) disposition. This was not the way Henry wanted to finish however, the experience was one that he will remember for a long time.

Even though Henry had not planned on driving the #02 UNOH modified, he was more than happy to have been extended the wheel time by the University and their confidence in him as a driver against those great driving legends that were in attendance at the event. Additionally, Henry kicked off his Road to Volusia support campaign that started in DeLand on February 10th. Henry’s Road to Volusia is a part of his Share the Experience whereby he set up several meet and greet booths to share his experiences with more fans about the sport he loves so much.

On February 10th Team JHR Ltd. was at the Tractor Supply Co in DeLand Florida taking photos, letting children sit in his late model and signing autograph cards. On February 11, the Jon Henry Racing Team was at the Dunnellon Florida Tractor Supply Co. where fans and former drivers of years gone by stopped to see his car and get their photo with him. One of the motivated visitors talked about how he had raced at Volusia back when the track was so new it was only on its second race. These are not the typical conversations that one would have at a track, but instead seemed to happen frequently on his Road to Volusia campaign. It was clear to Henry that his devotion to stand outside of a partnered retail entity and greet visitors with a warm smile and some kind words was really hitting home with them in this race fan rich area. On February 13, Henry was at the Ocala Florida Tractor Supply Co. again promoting his faith in the the race fans who want to visit about old times, get a photo, or have Henry sign an autograph card. Henry is set to conclude the Road to Volusia promotion at 3 PM where he will start his Volusia race series at the Ocala Speedway on February 13 at 6PM. While the days are long they are worth their weight in gold said Henry’s Team Development staff. “Jon has created so many good public relations for the race industry that it is no surprise why he will be a leader on the track” said his Team Development Leader. It is reported that even though he is out of his home area, Henry has made close to a couple thousand contacts in the three days of meet and greet sessions promoting his main theme of Share the Experience which fosters enthusiasm for sport longevity.
