JHR Week 13 Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 4:09 pm

Oakshade Raceway, Wauseon, OH (06/25/2011) “Barney Oldfield” 41 Late Models. Drew a 72, started 10th in the fourth heat race finished 6th. Started fourth in the second B-main finished 3rd. Only two cars transferred out of each B-main so we were unable to make the show. Just tough circumstances when your unable to qualify on a big night and have to start in the back of a strong heat race. The racing surface was extremely slick all night which made it even more difficult to pass. Kind of disappointed but I gave it everything I had in the B-main, just came up one car short.

Millstream Speedway, Wauseon, OH (06/26/2011) “Allstars” 32 Late Models. Qualified 2nd quick in group three. Started 2nd in the third heat race finished 2nd. Started 2nd in the feature finished 2nd. I grabbed the early lead and led the first 27 laps until I hit a rout in turn two sending me airborne stalling the car. I was able to pop it back in gear and continue on after only losing the lead. I tried to chase down leader Donnie Moran but fell a couple car lengths short at the checkered. We had the car to beat but after what happened I was just thankful to be able to finish.

Jon Henry to Drive Coloring Contest Winner’s Car This Weekend

ADA, OH (6/16/11) – Current Sunoco American Late Model Series points leader Jon Henry will have a slightly different look to his familiar #15 when he hits the track this weekend. The car will sport a coloring contest winning design submitted by Lima Middle School fifth-grader Merri Merkel.

Henry recently visited with Lima Middle School students to talk about the science and physics of racing a Dirt Late Model. After speaking with the students, Henry asked them to submit their ideas for a design that would incorporate what they learned from the driver.

“The kids really enjoyed it,” Henry told the Lima News. “It was tough to choose a winner, especially once we narrowed it down to the final five or six. We could tell these students put a lot of time, effort, and creativity into their designs.”
With help from Kurt Wilson of Wide Open Graphics, the two eventually chose Merri Merkel’s design as the winner. Merkel incorporated the words “force”, “velocity”, and “speed” on her design as Henry and Wilson kept the real life race car nearly identical to Merkel’s original blueprint.

“We tried to keep the wrap as close to the original as we possibly could,” Wilson said. “That was important to us because, in the return visit to Lima Middle School, we wanted to make sure all the kids recognized Merri’s design.”
For her efforts, Merkel received several prizes compliments of Jon Henry Racing, Wide Open Graphics, and several other sponsors, including two free suite passes to last weekend’s Dirt Late Model Dream at Eldora Speedway from UNOH and one free McFlurry every month for a year from McDonald’s, as well as a t-shirt, a bracelet, and a replica mini-door.

This weekend, Henry will race the Merkel-designed car at the Sunoco American Late Model Series races at Moler Raceway Park just outside of Williamsburg, Ohio on Friday at Oakshade Raceway on Saturday. The car will have a power plant from Mike Lawrence Motorsports under the hood.

Those interested in appearances by Henry as well as those wanting to learn more about the team’s marketing and partnership opportunities should contact JHR Ltd. at teamdev@jonhenryracing.com.

JHR Wins Two in a Row! Week 10 Results

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 11:15 am

Attica Raceway Park, Attica, OH (06/03/2011) 31 Late Models. Started 2nd in the third heat race, DNF after my right rear tire ripped off due to lose lug nuts. Started 16th in the B-main finished 2nd. Started 17th in the feature finished 1st! After barely getting my racecar to staging for the B-main and then being able to overcome the challenges and pull off a win with a stout field is just awesome! I can’t thank my crew enough and the help of the people around us. If it wouldn’t of been for Wayne Maffett’s crew chief Ed Ty coming over to help us we wouldn’t have made it out for the B-main. I owe him a big thank you for helping turn a disappoint night into one I’ll never forget!

Jon

Oakshade Raceway, Wauseon, OH (06/04/2011) 20 Late Models. Started 9th in the second heat race finished 3rd. Started 6th in the feature finished 1st! Just another great night. My racecar was awesome around the bottom and I was able to be very smooth on the gas.

Jon

Week 10 Recap: After a frustrating month of May, June starts off with a bang! Two wins in a row really sets a good pace. I couldn’t be happier with the way we bounced back after we even struggled to get the car to staging for the B-main at Attica. The race car was excellent and everything just fell into place.
