JHR to Sit Out the Remainder of 2012

Jon Henry to Sit Out the Remainder of the 2012 Racing Season

ADA, OHIO (7/30/12) – Two time and defending Sunoco American Late Model Series champion Jon Henry has made a tough decision to sit out the remainder of the 2012 racing season. Citing the loss of financial backing, Henry will not be behind the wheel of his own race car for rest of the year.

“It’s a tough decision,” Henry admitted. “But I need to take the time to save my money and do things right in order to continue my success. I recently reached one of my goals by completing the UMP Summer Nationals Hell Tour. As most folks know, the grueling schedule can take its toll on a car and motor. At this point in the game, after losing one of my main financial backers and with two motors that need freshened, I simply do not have the funds to continue competing this year.”

Henry grabbed a highly-publicized win on the “Hell Tour” with his victory at Spoon River (IL) Speedway, where he competed and won without any crew members. In addition to his win, Henry netted six UMP Summer Nationals heat race victories which he parlayed into nine top ten finishes. Aside from his Summer Nationals success, Henry has five UMP DirtCar sanctioned wins this year and currently sits 13th in the UMP DirtCar National Late Model points standings.

For the rest of 2012, Henry plans to stay active in the sport assuming various roles. This weekend, he will travel to Cedar Lake (WI) Speedway to turn wrenches for Frank Heckenast Jr. at the $50,000-to-win USA Nationals.

“While I may be on the sidelines, I won’t be idle,” Henry said. “I want to continue to learn, study and grow so that I can come back stronger than ever when the time is right. I’m disappointed to be letting down my sponsors and my fans, but hopefully they understand the tough decision I had to make.”

Becoming arguable the hottest “free agent” in the sport, Henry would be open to racing for a team if the situation was right. Aside from holding five consecutive UMP DirtCar titles, including the honor of being co-Late Model champion at Eldora Speedway, Henry netted an impressive 14 Late Model wins last season with 32 top fives and 41 top ten finishes along with making the World 100. His consistent finishes and strong runs garnered him a third place finish in last season’s final UMP DirtCar National Late Model points tally.

JHR Hell Tour Experience

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 12:14 pm

JHR - Hell Tour
What an experience! I just did 25 races in 30 days! Let me explain the Hell Tour to you as a metaphor to easily understand. Its biggest oldest wooden roller coaster ride in the country. It’s the ride that defines roller coasters. It’s the bumpiest roughest most uncomfortable up and down ride of your life, but if you survive, your proud to walk away saying you did it!
I can’t count how many times I thought for sure I wasn’t going to make it another day, but always continued to push forward. Driving roughly three hours every night with only about five hours of sleep. Not to mention working on the car each day in the scorching heat. I didn’t even plan on running the whole tour so I wasn’t prepared or organized which really made for a much more difficult process. One thing I told myself though is that I’ll take it day by day and go until I simply can’t go anymore…There really is a reason for everything, I went through a lot of ups and downs but I’m very thankful for the experience. This will definitely take my career to another level.
Thanks to all my sponsors and fans for your support through this deal. You’re the reason I continued to push forward and never gave up!
-Jon
