ATTICA, Ohio – Cap Henry ended Saturday’s race at Attica Raceway Park in the same spot he ended it Friday night, in victory lane.
Henry swept the weekend at Attica Raceway Park on Saturday, earning an extra $1,000 bonus for winning both 410 sprint car features.
Henry would muscle the top spot away from West Virginia driver Cale Conley as the two went wheel-to-wheel on lap seven. On lap eight Henry was scored the leader and never wavered from there, winning by half a straightaway over Travis Philo, Conley, John Ivy and Chad Kemenah.
“We are happy to be here and support the track,” stated Henry. “We are happy to support the Bores’ family and everybody that helps out at this place. They did not have to put a race on today, they knew car count could be a factor, but they did it anyway and gave everyone a chance to race. And we appreciate that. They threw some bonus money at it if anyone could win both races. We were fortunate to win both races, and pull it off. We are happy to be here racing, especially considering how the year started out. Just to get to race is fun.”
The 30 lap A-Main started with polesitter Conley busting out to a three car length lead early. Henry started from the outside of the front row. He used the top of the track and started feeling in Conley before he took the lead on lap seven.
Once in front, Henry immediately found his groove and laid waste to the field. Philo drove by Conley on lap 11 in an effort to catch Henry, but he had little chance of catching Henry.
There was a moment at lap 23 when a gaggle of slower cars slowed rapidly in turn three and Henry got bottled up, actually driving into the back of one car as he had nowhere to go, wrinkling up his front nose wing.
Once he gathered it up and got out of the congestion, he went back to work and stretched the lead out until the checked flag waved for his 12th overall victory at Attica and his 10th overall victory of the season.
“I just try to put myself in a position to make things happen,” Henry said. “I do still think some luck plays into it, I got behind some lapped cars and there was just some action going on there and they all checked up. I got into the back of them and messed the front wing up. But once I got threw I was able to go on, everything seemed to be alright. We are really looking forward to the All Stars and Labor Day weekend, hopefully we can defend our home turf. Just very happy that we get to race.”
In other action, Paul Weaver became the third leader of the 25-lap Fremont Fence 305 Sprints feature on lap 20 and drove to his fourth feature win of the season at Attica. It was his 53rd career win in the division at the track.
Shawn Valenti held off several late race charges from Jim Holcomb to earn the dirt truck feature win. It was his 19th career win in the division at Attica as he sits atop the all-time victory list.
