Henry grabs second 410 win in a row at Fremont Speedway

Cap Henry sliced his way through traffic like a surgeon and drove to his second straight 410 feature win at Fremont Speedway on May 27, Ohio Laborers Night. It is his third win of the season at “The Track That Action Built.” Henry took the lead from rookie Kasey Jedrzejek on lap seven of the Fort Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints feature and caught lapped traffic perfectly, passing them one at a time to claim his 15th career win at Fremont. Henry survived a three-lap shootout at the end after a caution, driving away from Travis Philo and Cole Macedo.
“Last thing you want to do when you start on the pole is get beat by a rookie into turn one, and Kasey did a good job there. By the time that first caution came out, I realized we had a pretty good car and just had to maintain it. I didn’t know if that caution at the end helped me or hurt me but Zack (Myers, crew chief) told me to go, so I knew we had to get with it. I’m just super grateful for everyone that’s involved in this.
“Jeff (Ward) bringing Zack and I on board and both the Wilson Brothers – this one goes out to their dad who they lost over the winter This car has been so good – it’s made racing a lot of fun again. I got lucky when I was dealing with lapped cars I was dealing with them one at a time and not two or three wide. It was a tricky race track but I give the track crew a lot of credit. For what we started out with and what it was at the end was a lot of fun,” said Henry beside his Jeff Ward Demolition, Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts, Premier Planning Services, Tony Elliott Foundation, Primal Tee Shop; SCS Gear Box, NAPA of Fremont backed #33W.
Piqua, Ohio’s Travis Hery inherited the lead on lap 19 of the Great Lakes Traditional Sprints 25 lap feature after race-long leader Larry Kingseed had a right rear tire come off. On a challenging track, Hery held off several challenges from Keith Sheffer the last four laps for his first ever Fremont win.
“It was pretty gnarly there in one and two and I biked up pretty good on that last restart. I don’t know if it got in my head or something got messed up in the car, but it got pretty tight. I have to thank my mom and dad for all they put into this. My wife Chloe – wish she could be here – she’s busy working but I’m sure she’s home cheering. Claxton builds us a really good motor every year and everyone who helps out,” Hery said.
Fremont’s Jamie Miller made it a sweep of the weekend in 305 sprint competition, leading all 25 laps to claim his second win of the season at Fremont. Miller, who won Friday at Attica Raceway Park, picked his way through traffic to claim his 41st career win at Fremont, putting him 11th on the all-time win list.
“The lapped cars were coming pretty fast. I just tried to hold the line and keep the car under me and stay out of the holes and keep the gas pedal down. The car motor combination is on point right now. We’re getting the car dialed in. It’s a fast hot rod,” said Miller beside his Boca Construction, Kenny Kalb Farms, Roberts & Sons Contracting, JLH General Contractor, Tuck Pointing America, Pizza Wheel, Smitty’s Pizza, Queen of Clean, Rohr Total Lawn Care, Crown Battery, Reedtown Tavern, Fostoria Mod Shop, Slade Shock Technology, CA Kustoms, Jamie Miller Trucking, Reliable Spray Foam Insulators, Gill Sawmill backed #26.
