JHR Wins ALMS Thriller

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 9:05 am

Henry Out Duels VanWormer for Attica ALMS Win
By Brian Liskai

(Attica, OH) After an edge-of-your-seat, race-long duel with Jeep VanWormer, Ada, Ohio’s Jon Henry was able to pull away on a couple of late race restarts to take the Sunoco American Late Model Series win at Attica Raceway Park on True Value of Woodville/Merrill Lynch/Columbus Equipment Night.
The 30-lap late model main featured a tremendous battle the entire distance between Henry, Brian Ruhlman, Jeep Van Wormer and a charging Matt Miller who stormed from his 18th starting spot to be a contender at the end.

“I earned that one tonight. I tell you what, this is emotional for me. I have a lot of people supporting me and one individual in particular, Darrell Kirsch…I wanted to win one for him,” said Henry Beside his Mean 15 – individuals and businesses that sponsored his #15 this season. “It’s tough…I’ve been thinking about him and I’m thinking about Kent Robinson, a fellow racer who lost his dad today. I raced that race for them.”

Henry said it was “heart” that got him to victory lane. “I just got up on the wheel and said I’m not letting this one slip away…I let the last one slip away, I’m racing my ass off,” he said. “You’d better be elbows up when Jeep’s around. I knew what I had to do to win this race and it was either wreck or win. I have to thank my dad, John; he busts his butt for me.”

Henry thanked his “Mean 15” sponsors of Fultz Fabrications, Henry Farms, Mike and Sheila Keller, Truman Quarter horses, Lehman & Lehman, Norada Lanes, Associated Plastic, Home Savings and Loan, William H. Bass Trucking, Ron Spencer Real Estate, Jim Weber Motorsports, Automated Transport, In Memory of Darrell Kirsch, Re-Deck of Northwest Ohio, and Fremont Speedway.

JHR Debuts 2013 at LaSalle

Filed under: JHR Blogs — jon @ 5:13 pm

LaSalle Speedway, La Salle, IL (03/29/2013) 46 Late Models. $2,000 to win.
Fast time in group five. Won the fifth heat holding off Kevin Weaver, Billy Drake, Brian Birkhofer, and Chris Simpson. Started 5th in the feature. Made the wrong adjustments and tire choice. I maintained my position for the first ten laps until I started searching around to try and gain some ground. Unfortunately I got to high in turns one and two catching the wall, which ended up tearing off my spoiler. The car very ill handling after that point forcing me to pull in and resulting in a DNF.

LaSalle Speedway, La Salle, IL (03/30/2013) 40 Late Models. $10,000 to win.
Third quick in group four. Started 2nd the heat and lead most of the race until a late side by side battle with Austin Hubbard. I was unable to hang on to the top spot and settled in for 2nd place finish. Started 8th in the feature, was rolling good until 10 laps to go when my right rear shock broke. It was difficult to maintain but I was still able to finish the race in 15th. All in all it was a great weekend to finally get back behind the wheel. I feel like we showed a lot of potential and will continue to improve from here on out.
