When you're feeling it, it seems like nothing can hold you back from getting to the front. That's how Ada, Ohio, driver Jon Henry has been rolling this year. Henry won again for his second straight weekend at Attica Raceway Park, at his home track. With 27 Late Model cars on the track, Henry started fifth in the second heat race and finished first. Then he started ninth in the feature and he again found the checkered.
Jon Henry says he's comfortable with his car and with hi driving ability this year, and along with that comes even more confidence.

"Things were a lot different from last weekend," remarked the K&N sponsored driver. "The racing surface was much slower this. Starting back in ninth position for the feature created more of a challenge than starting in second last weekend."

Still, Henry was able to quickly work his way towards the front, and by the fourth lap he was sitting in third place after the first caution flag. On lap five Henry took over the lead and systemically separated himself from the field. With three laps remaining, Henry began to feel some pressure from UMP National Champion, Rusty Schlenk, but he was able to hold him off to the checkered flag, winning his second straight feature at the Attica, Ohio Raceway.
For the season the Jon Henry Racing LTD team has already collected four wins, and a second and third place finish.

Said Henry, "I'm just very comfortable with my racecar right now, and with being comfortable with your ability, comes confidence. Patience has very much been the key. I know if I keep my nose clean, I have a fast enough racecar to get me to the front."

For the season thus far, Jon Henry Racing LTD has already earned four wins, a second and a third place finish.

"You can't ask for much better than the way our year started for us at home," Henry adds. "My main goal now is to continue to be consistent."

Henry told K&N Race News that to prepare for this year he and the team focused on all the "little things" during the off season. "Our spring and shock combination, thanks to Eibach, Ohlins and Accuforce, really helped to up our program. And Hawk Performance hooked us up with new brake pads that really appear to help a lot too."

Looking at the big-picture Henry and the team see 2011 as a building season for their future in Dirt Late Model racing.

"I plan to race as much as I can this season and work on bigger and better things for 2012," continues Henry. "Right now my goal for 2012 will be the UMP Summer Nationals, which consists of 27 races in 30 days. It requires a lot of man-power and money in order to be prepared and to be successful."

The coming weekend of May 13 through the 15th will be a busy one for Jon Henry Racing LTD.

"We start at Attica Raceway Park in Attica, Ohio on Friday, on to Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio on Saturday, then the Allstar Late Model Series invades Millstream Speedway in Findlay, Ohio, for $4,000 to win." Adds Henry, "We are praying for no more rain!"
