Jon Henry has found a home. The UMP Late Model star recently won four straight races at Attica Raceway Park and looks primed to capture another Sunoco American Late Model Series championship. The Ada, Ohio native and 2009 UMP National Rookie of the Year, as well as American Late Model Champion, is off to his best start yet, and the team is showing no signs of slowing down entering the summer months.

"We have a solid car and continue to be consistent," Henry said. "As long as I keep the car in one piece, we should continue to be competitive."

Henry and his team are also planning on running some UMP Summer Nationals races this season. But for now, the team remains focused on the American Late Model Series. The winning streak at Attica has the team more confident than ever. "Four in a row is impressive, but to be honest, I didn't even think about it until we got beat," Henry added with a chuckle. "Every time I get in the seat, I have the same game plan; 'keep the nose clean and finish.' I haven't won four consecutive championships or multiple races in a row by not finishing. If you finish, you always have a chance to win."

Henry's car is one of the most respected throughout the northeast. It has even been featured in Eldora's Prelude to the Dream, where Travis Pastrana competed in the JHR Late Model. With over 30 wins under his belt and track championships at Eldora and Limaland, everyone knows to watch out for #15 Wide Open Graphics, K&N Filter's entry. While Attica has been nice to Henry, he says it's just the teams style that has led to their recent success there.

"Attica is a racers track, and the driver really does a lot, but I think when you're as comfortable as we are, you can make small changes and run well anywhere," he added.

When it comes to performance, Jon Henry Racing only uses one filter on their cars, K&N. "A very important part to dirt racing is keeping the motor clean. K&N products are first class when it comes to keeping dirt out of our motors. I'm shocked every time I use the K&N Power Cleaner to wash out a filter after a race, and I see how much dirt particles the filter keeps out of my engine. The Power Cleaner really works!"
