Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing Score Career Best Finish in 410 Sprint Car Action

Mechanicsburg, PA – April 2, 2024

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing took a major step forward in their rise to the 410 Sprint Car ranks as the Newville, PA native brought home a career best 17th-place finish on Friday at Williams Gove Speedway.

A planned doubleheader in the winged and wingless sportsman on Saturday at BAPS Motor Speedway ended up cancelled because of inclement weather.

“We were at the Grove on opening day, but with a tough pill draw and tougher track conditions I felt like this was a first real crack at the track,” said Jackson. “This time around was a much better experience and while the finish could have been better, we made another show and we’re continuing to learn and grow.”

A total of 27 410 Sprint Cars attended the famed Mechanicsburg track on Friday and Jackson kicked off the night by finishing third in a heat race. As a result, he was able to lock into the night’s A-main event with the eighth starting position.

“There were a lot of good drivers in the heat race, and we were able to run in second for quite a bit and we did more than hold our own,” he said. “I think lack of experience cost us a little bit, but of course I’m still learning, and we need nights like that to move forward as a team.”

Jackson ran consistently in between the ninth and 12th position for a majority of the feature event. However, several frequent cautions early in the event didn’t allow for the opportunity to make consistent laps or to get in a rhythm. As a result, he settled for a 17th place finish, which earned him his first career top 20 finish in the 410 Sprint Car ranks.

“I think we had maybe a 12th place car honestly, but the cautions really hurt our ability to get in a rhythm and it was just tough,” said Jackson. “I think one of the biggest obstacles I have to overcome is restarts and being in dirty air. Inexperience played a part in us maybe not showing all that we could, but overall, it was a decent night.”

Jackson will return to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa on Friday to compete in 410 Sprint Car action before making his second start of the season at the Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA on Saturday. 

With tough weather conditions playing spoiler for much of the early season in Central Pennsylvania, Jackson and Hess are optimistically looking forward to the opportunity of a two-race weekend to help continue to speed up the learning curve of taking on a new division of Sprint Car racing.

“We found a few small issues with the car since the last time we raced at Lincoln, but we feel like we’re better prepared this time around,” said Jackson. “Obviously Mother Nature hasn’t been anyone’s friend in the area so far, but just having multiple options in the area is a plus and was a huge selling point in us moving to the 410 ranks. The best way to learn is to keep making laps and I’m optimistic and excited for what’s to come!”

March 29 – Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA – Heat race: 3 (1); Feature: 17 (8). 

SEASON STATS

5 races, 0 wins, 1 top 5, 1 top 10’s, 1 top 15’s, 2 top 20’s

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing Continue Learning Game in First BAPS 410 Sprint Car Start

York Haven, PA – March 27, 2024

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Tony Jackson competed Sunday at BAPS Motor Speedway in the Scott Hess Racing 410 Sprint Car and the Newville, Pa native brought home a 22nd-place finish. The 410 start was the third of his season and his first in the division at the York Haven, PA facility.

“With 34 cars in attendance, we had a goal to just make the show,” said Jackson. “Once we got it in the show, the goal was to then complete 30 laps and ultimately, we fell short of that. But the truth is we’ve made two features in three shows, so we’re off to a good start.”

Jackson kicked off the night in qualifying by laying down a fastest lap of 15.225 seconds, which was good enough for fourth quickest in his group. As a result, he started on the pole for a heat race. He ran second for five laps before falling to fourth and locked himself into the night’s A-main event.

“I didn’t get a good jump and Cory Eliason got by me, but we ultimately were able to pass him which was cool,” said Jackson. “For about five laps I was feeling like a rockstar, but I didn’t adjust accordingly and I kind of went into preservation mode to ensure we got in the show.”

Jackson lined up 16th for the 30-lap A-main and he settled into the 17th position for the first half of the race. However, two cars got together, and one turned around in front of him. This left him nowhere to go and ended his night early. He was credited with finishing 22nd.

“BAPS is the track I’m most familiar with, so it was nice to make some competitive laps there in the 410 and keep this racing journey moving forward,” he said. “We had some speed early in the night and we did some good things that we can build on, so overall we’ll chalk this one up as a learning experience.

Next up for Jackson will be a trip to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa on Friday to compete in 410 Sprint Car action before running both winged and wingless in the sportsman on Saturday at BAPS.

With mother nature providing tough track conditions during his first start at Williams Grove earlier this season, Jackson feels like this weekend will give him a better feel of the historic facility and what it takes to be competitive there.

“The goal will be to get ourselves in the show and make as many laps as possible. I talked to Lance Dewease during my first start, and he reminded me that we were facing an uphill climb trying to learn in Central PA on a track as complex as Williams Grove when the weather did us no favors. Hopefully, we can get a nice surface this Friday and decent weather, so we can really get an idea of our package there and just learn as much as possible,” said Jackson.

“When it comes to the Sportsman, this is an opportunity to race in front of a lot of our sponsors and hopefully we can come home with two victories. If anything, maybe we can gain some confidence behind the wheel that will lend itself to the 410 side of things,” he added.

WEEKEND RESULTS

March 24 – BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, PA – Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 4 (1); Feature: 22 (16). 

SEASON STATS

4 races, 0 wins, 1 top 5, 1 top 10’s, 1 top 15’s, 1 top 20’s

Sandvig Motorsports Announces JJ Hickle as Driver for the No. 7 410 Sprint Car in the 2024 Racing Season

Spencer, IA – December 4, 2023

Sandvig Motorsports is thrilled to announce that JJ Hickle will be taking the wheel of the No. 7 410 Sprint Car for the upcoming 2024 racing season. With a proven track record and a passion for speed, Hickle brings a wealth of experience and talent to the team, and Sandvig Motorsports is excited to see what they can achieve together on the track.

Hickle spent the majority of his 2023 racing season competing with the All Star Circuit of Champions as a rookie contender on the tour before dropping off the tour just past the midway point of the year. As he looks to put that experience to use in 2024, Hickle expressed his enthusiasm about joining Sandvig Motorsports.

“I’m honored to be a part of the Sandvig Motorsports team and excited to drive the No. 7 410 Sprint Car. I believe we have the potential for a successful season, and I’m looking forward to the challenges and victories that lie ahead.”

In addition to the driver announcement, Sandvig Motorsports is actively seeking sponsorships for the 2024 racing season to enhance their program and maximize their performance on the track. The team welcomes potential sponsors to join them on this thrilling journey and invites interested parties to reach out for partnership opportunities.

Last year saw Brooke Tatnell, Lynton Jeffrey, and Ian Madsen pilot the Sandvig Motorsports car at various times, mainly throughout the Midwest. While Sandvig is thankful for all the drivers’ efforts last season, he is looking forward to continuing to build on his program with a different level of consistency in 2024 and believes Hickle is the guy to get them there.

“We are proud to have JJ Hickle on board as our driver for the No. 7 410 Sprint Car. With his skill and dedication, coupled with the support of our fans and sponsors, we are confident that we can make a significant impact in the upcoming season.”

Sandvig Motorsports is currently working on finalizing the racing schedule for the 2024 season. An official schedule announcement is expected in the coming months as the team continues to prepare for an exciting and competitive year ahead. The goal is to compete at various events with different sanctions throughout the Mid-West, with some traveling possible dependent on sponsorship.

For sponsorship inquiries or further information, please contact Mike Sandvig at [email protected] or 712-260-8823.

Tony Jackson Excels in Racing Season While Embarking on a New Career Journey

Carlisle, PA – September 14, 2023

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Tony Jackson and Hess Motorsports continues to impress within the Super Sportsman division in 2023 as they’ve picked up six victories over the past few months, highlighted by his first career Sportsman 100 victory at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, PA.

The win capped off an eventful few months for the Carlisle, Pa native that saw him score three wins in winged competition (two at BAPS and one at Path Valley Speedway) and three in wingless action (Path Valley, Bedford Speedway and Williams Grove Speedway).

“We’ve had a really good run these past few months and my confidence is at an all-time high,” said Jackson. “Every time we hit the track, I feel confident we’ll be in contention, and it just speaks to how good of a team Scott Hess gives me.”

Specific to the Sportsman 100 triumph, Jackson and his father became the first father and son duo to claim victory in the 49th running of the historic event.

“It’s pretty special to add my name to the list of guys who have won that race, and for me and my dad to make history is something I’ll never forget.” he said. “As long as I can remember this race has meant a lot to me and my family and it was just really cool.”

With Jackson set to move up to the 410 Sprint Car ranks in 2024, the win was even more special as he knew it would likely be his final go at taking the crown.

“We may run it again in the future, but for all intent I knew it was kind of our last shot at getting a Sportsman 100 win,” said Jackson. “I kind of went into the race with the mentality that it was do or die and I was all in on coming home a winner.”

With his racing career reaching new heights, he is simultaneously gearing up for a fresh adventure in the motorsports industry. Over the next few months, Jackson will be taking part in several test and tune sessions at BAPS, with the goal of debuting behind the wheel of a 410 Sprint Car at the track for the $20,000 to win Les Stewart Final Showdown on November 11th.

“It’s been a fun year, but honestly I’m just ready to start focusing on 2024 and the 410 Sprint Car,” said Jackson. “We’re going to give it our all and this is the next logical step in that process.”

“I’ve had a lot of success at BAPS over the years and I’m really looking forward to practicing and getting comfortable there,” he added. “The offseason is a short one, but it can also be a long one. I don’t want to sit all offseason waiting for 2024 to get here and not be my best to start the year off. So, we’re going to kind of shake things down and we’ll see where we stack up come November against some good competition.”

Justin Henderson to Wheel Famed Kreitz 69k

Tea, SD – September 11, 2023

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Justin Henderson is proud to announce that he will be competing behind the wheel of the famed Kreitz Racing No. 69k for three events to close out the 2023 racing season. 

Henderson will join the team for their first event together on October 14th for the Weldon Sterner Memorial at the Lincoln Speedway in Hanover, Pa. 

The team will then venture off the porch November 1-4th for the World of Outlaws World Finals at The Dirt Track at Chalotte in North Carolina. Their final event together will take place on November 11th at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, Pa.

“When the ride came available after Lance left, I called Donnie and I threw my hat into the ring,” said Henderson. “I told him I didn’t have any sponsorship to bring to the table and I didn’t want to be a ride chaser, but I wanted a shot at it.

“I had commitments up until Knoxville and we couldn’t put something together until after that, but ultimately I’m just really looking forward to this opportunity and I think we can be fast and compete at a high level.”

While this will be the first time Henderson ventures to Central Pennsylvania during the 2023 season, he’s no stranger to the local tracks and the Pennsylvania Posse as he served as a full-fledged member many years ago behind the wheel of the Dawn and Charlie Sorokach No 35 and Mark Coldren’s No. 07.

It was around that time in 2015 that he met Kreitz, as he piloted the famed powder-blue 69k for a handful of races while Kreitz was dealing with health issues. It’s a relationship that has blossomed since then and had Henderson on top of Kreitz’s list when it came time to find a driver to close out the season.

“It feels really good to know that we have a relationship capable of them calling me back to run for them again,” said Henderson. “A lot of this sport is about relationships and obviously I made enough of an impact on Donnie and the team to where they believe I can get it done. More than anything, that’s a pretty special feeling for me.”

While the plans are currently for Henderson to only pilot the car for these three races, there’s an opportunity for future races and plans for the 2024 season. Either way, Henderson is relishing the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a famed car and a ride that he feels may have gotten away from him years ago.

“I think we’re both looking towards next year. Things need to go well and make sense, but if it goes like I think it can and will, it’s a no brainer to do more together,” said Henderson. “I’m really just looking forward to sitting in the car and the feeling that comes with driving such an iconic ride.”

“I’ve driven for some pretty good teams and owners, but there’s just something really special about this team and how they operate. There’s going to be some butterflies and anxious moments about it, but I didn’t know if I’d ever get the opportunity to do this with Donnie and Davey again and I’m so thankful.”

More than just the racing, Henderson is very excited about the ability to get back to Pennsylvania and spend some time in “The Keystone State”.

“My wife is from Pennsylvania, and we’ve obviously got some roots there,” he said. “To be able to load up the family and get some added time surrounded by friends, family and the Pennsylvania fans is something I don’t take for granted and it has me amped up even more.”

Tony Jackson Set To Make the Jump From Super Sportsman to 410 Sprint Car Competition in 2024

Carlisle, PA – June 30, 2023

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Brian Rhoad / WRT Speedwerx

Tony Jackson, with the support of car-owner Scott Hess and Hess Motorsports, is proud to announce that he’ll be making the transition from Super Sportsman competition to 410 Sprint Car racing in 2024. This decision marks a significant step forward in his career and sets the stage for an exciting new chapter in his already impressive journey.

“We’ve been kicking it around now for a little bit and we just decided that now is the right time to make the move,” said Jackson. “I know it’s going to be a challenge, but I’m really looking forward to what’s ahead of us and seeing what we can do.”

The current plan is to tentatively run around 40 races next season, with a focus on special events at BAPS Motor Speedway, Williams Grove Speedway on Friday nights and Port Royal Speedway on Saturdays.

“We’ll start with places I’m comfortable at and just try and gain as much experience as possible,” said Jackson. “We’ve got a few possible cards on the table that could open things up a lot more next season, but right now this is the plan.”

“We’ve talked about possibly going out to Western PA a little bit as well, but really we’re just going into things with an open mind and we’ll see where it takes us,” he added.

With an impressive track record in the Super Sportsman series, Jackson has consistently demonstrated exceptional talent, determination, and an unwavering passion for the sport. Over the years, he has carved a name for himself as a formidable force, capturing the attention of fans, competitors, and sponsors alike.

Jackson teamed up with Hess a few years ago in the Sportsman division and the wins have come in bunches. No stranger to the Sprint Car game as a longtime crew chief, owner and sponsor, Hess believes Jackson has the talent capable of not only making the jump to 410 Sprint Car racing, but to compete and challenge for wins.

“We’re really excited about building this team and we’re excited to get going,” said Hess. “I really believe Tony has the ability to win races at the next level and we’re excited to give him the opportunity to make his dream a reality.”

The decision to transition to the intense and highly competitive world of 410 Sprint Car racing in Central Pennsylvania represents Jackson’s commitment to pushing his limits and pursuing excellence in the sport. The move is driven by a burning desire to challenge himself further, test his skills against the best in the business, and chase the ultimate glory of victory at the highest level.

He’s also looking forward to continuing his family’s legacy, as his father Larry Jackson was a force to be reckoned with for decades in the Sportsman and 410 Sprint Car ranks.

“As a kid growing up at Silver Springs and watching my dad be as successful as he was, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t dream of winning races and racing too,” said Jackson. “He’s a well-known name in this area and being able to represent that legacy against the best in the business is something I’m really proud of and don’t take lightly.”

The team will utilize Maxim Chassis and a combination of Rider and Godfrey Racing Engines. Sponsors include Truck Specialties, Machining America, McCoy Brothers, Interstate Garage Doors, Family Ford, Custom Cut Floorings, Hess Iron, Donnie Reeser, Ken Brown Racing, Piper Advertising, K&H Suspension, Dellinger’s Auto Body, and Chamberlin and Wingert Sanitary Services.

The team’s sponsors, whose support has been instrumental in making this transition possible, are equally thrilled about the upcoming season. Their continued commitment and investment in Jackson demonstrate their belief in his talent and the potential for success in the fiercely competitive world of Central PA 410 Sprint Car racing.

“It means so much to me that Scott, his wife Lori, and my sponsors have the confidence in me to make all this possible,” said Jackson. “None of these people must do this and the only reason they are is because they believe I can do it and do it well. We’re working hard to build this team the right way and I’m looking forward to representing them at the track next season.”

For media inquiries, sponsorship opportunities, or to schedule an interview, please contact Tony Jackson or Scott Hess.

Brooke Tatnell to Join Sandvig Motorsports as Driver for 2023 Racing Season

Spencer, IA – December 25, 2022

by Justin Snyder, Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Mike Sandvig Motorsports is proud to announce that Brooke Tatnell has been named the new driver of the No. 7 410 Sprint Car for the 2023 racing season.

After Justin Henderson departed the ride after a successful four year partnership, Sandvig found himself in the unusual spot of looking for a driver this offseason. With a team that’s been as competitive in the Midwest as any team over the last four seasons, Sandvig had no shortage of interest and phone calls over the winter.

However, one name stuck out and that was the Sans Souci, NSW, Australian native of Tatnell. With more than 250 career combined 410 and 360 Sprint Car victories over a lengthy career and a familiarity with the Midwestern tracks Sandvig’s car regularly competes at, it was an easy choice.

Throw in the fact that Tatnell has competed full-time on the World of Outlaws tour, with a career-best sixth-place finish in the standings in 2006 and 15 victories with the series, and that he’s captured a win during the prestigious Knoxville Nationals in 2006 during their World Challenge, it was clear Tatnell would provide Sandvig with the type of driver he was looking for to be able to challenge for wins on the grandest of stages.

Brooke has been very successful over the years and his experience gives us the best shot to compete,” said Mike Sandvig, car owner. “He’s a guy who is good on equipment and will give you a chance no matter who we’re competing against and that’s really exciting to know.”

Ironically enough it was Tatnell who topped Henderson and Sandvig by a mere three points last season to deny them a second consecutive Huset’s Speedway track championship on the final night of the season.

It was a big night for Tatnell and his car owners and proved that the veteran driver could still get it done behind the wheel when the stakes were high. It also proved to be a moment that stuck in his mind when Sandvig was considering drivers for this season.

Brooke may be a veteran but make no mistake about it he is eager to win and is as hungry as ever,” said Sandvig. “Just in watching how he competes and in talking to him, I feel like when it comes down to it, he gives us the best shot to win with what we are trying to accomplish this season.”

The current plan is to continue to focus mainly on the Midwestern scene with local events, when possible, but Sandvig isn’t just looking to capture trophies locally with Tatnell. The team also plans to compete semi-regularly with the World of Outlaws in regional shows along with the possibility of several High Limit Series events.

Tatnell will continue his normal driving duties behind the wheel of the DeWall No. 16 team running a similar schedule as last season as well.

Knowing he has a driver capable of not only making shows and competing, but one with experience at tracks all over the country that will allow for them to challenge for wins in large-paying shows, has Sandvig most excited about the partnership in 2023.

I’m really excited for 2023 to start and I can’t wait to get going with Brooke behind the wheel,” said Sandvig. “We’ve had a lot of great sponsors over the years who have supported us and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to showcase them at the track this season!

A full schedule, list of sponsors and more information will be released closer to the season. For up-to-date information and news, stay tuned on Facebook at Facebook.com/SandvigMotorsports7 and Addicted2DirtPR.com.

Henderson and Sandvig Riding Momentum Heading into the Cappy and Knoxville Nationals

Knoxville, IA – August 5, 2022

Justin Henderson continued to build momentum behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Motorsports No. 7 410 Sprint Car as he picked up a 12th place finish with the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday and an eighth-place result at Huset’s Speedway on Sunday in regional competition.

 

With the upcoming Knoxville Nationals weekend on the horizon, the solid effort against stout competition has Henderson feeling confident about the direction of their program and their chances of being in the running come next week.

 

“We were fast out the gate one night and not so fast out the gate on another night, so it’s really hard to know what was right or wrong about the car,” said Henderson. “But we’ve definitely turned a corner since bringing back our old Maxim, so I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do here the next few weeks.”

 

Henderson began the evening by timing in 32nd quickest out of 55 cars in attendance with a fastest lap of 16.537 seconds during qualifying. He then advanced one position in a heat race to finish fifth and narrowly missed qualifying for the A-main by one position. As a result, he had to run the B-main, where he passed three cars to finish second and locked himself into the feature event.

 

“We didn’t qualify really well and had to work ourselves out of a hole,” said Henderson. “Anytime you must start in the back of a heat race you are really at a disadvantage. Throw in the number of cars there and the quality of those cars and you’ve got your hands full.”

 

Lining up from the 22nd starting position, Henderson knew he had an uphill battle ahead of him. However, he remained persistent and steadily worked his way forward to take the checkered flag in the 12th position. The 10 spots gained were good enough to earn the night’s hard charger award and he was also given the persistence award as well for the effort.

 

“The car was really racy in the feature, and we were kind of committed to the bottom and the car felt really good,” he said. “It’s hard to pass cars in this sport with the way these cars are, so to gain that much ground with the competition we had makes you feel good”

 

The team headed to Huset’s Speedway on Sunday and Henderson unloaded fast off the trailer as he qualified first among 24 cars in attendance to earn the night’s fast time award. He followed that up by advancing two positions in a heat race to finish second and earned the seventh starting position for the A-main following a re-draw.

 

With the leaders setting a quick pace, Henderson struggled during the A-main to make up any ground. He dropped backwards one position to finish in eighth, which was good enough for his 15th top ten finish of the season.

 

“I felt like the first couple laps in the feature were not up to par and that set the tone for us,” he said. “After that we were just kind of making laps and trying to stay clean. It wasn’t a bad night by any means, but also nothing special.”

 

Next up for the duo will be a trip to Knoxville Raceway on Sunday for the 11th Annual Capitani Classic, paying $9000 to win. This will be the final tune-up event for the duo as they’re set to compete next week in the famed Knoxville Nationals beginning Wednesday night.

 

“I think the Cappy is a race that we can really get some momentum going and I think it’ll be a good sign of how our Nationals will be,” said Henderson. “The format fits us well and I obviously know my way around Knoxville. We’re looking to kind of make a statement and now is as good of a time as ever to get rolling and I’m excited.”

Henderson and Sandvig Motorsports Experience Heartbreak at Knoxville Raceway

Knoxville, IA – July 15, 2022

by Justin Snyder, Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Spot-Photos.com

Justin Henderson scored a disappointing 23rd-place finish at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night after a mechanical issue ended what appeared to be  a promising night behind the wheel of the Mike Sandvig Motorsports No 7 410 Sprint Car.

 

“Luckily I saved the car from getting into the wall, but overall, a tough night for our team,” said Henderson. “Sometimes I feel like we’d have no luck at all if not for bad luck. So overall it’s not much to write about.”

 

Henderson began the evening by timing in 5th quickest out of 32 cars in attendance with a fastest lap of 15.837 seconds during qualifying. He then advanced one position in a heat race to finish fourth and secured a spot in the night’s feature event.

 

“Qualifying well makes  everything easier and it seems we turned the corner there,” said Henderson. “We were not great in the heat race and just managed to hold on to get her in the show, so we’re still working on that part of things.”

 

Following a fortunate re-draw, Henderson lined up from the 5th starting position for the feature. However, his night practically ended before it ever started when he came to a stop against the outside guardrail on lap two with a broken tie-rod bolt. As a result, he was  credited with finishing in the 23rd position.

 

“We didn’t really start too well, so there’s not much we can take from that experience,” he said. “I’d have liked to maybe learn a few things from the changes we made, but that’s the way things go sometimes.”

 

While the finish was frustrating, Henderson was able to find encouragement in the early speed the car had on track.

 

“We turned the corner a little bit and we’re kind of trial and error until we get it right,” he said. “I feel like we’re getting back on track as a team, and we had some speed. So, we’ll just take the positives we can from it and just keep moving forward.”

 

Next up for the duo will be another Saturday of racing at Knoxville Raceway, followed by a return to Huset’s Speedway on Sunday. 

 

Henderson currently sits on top of the point standings at Huset’s, where he holds a 12-point advantage in search of his second consecutive track championship at the Brandon, S.D Speedway.

 

“We’re leading the points at Huset’s and It’s always a good time when you enter as the points leader, ” said Henderson. “The crazy thing is that I don’t know that we have really scratched the surface in how good we are as a team this season yet.

 

“We’re really grinding away at this deal and we’re working hard to be ready come Nationals time. I feel like the best is yet to come for this team and I’m looking forward to clicking off a few wins hopefully in the near future.”

Henderson and Sandvig Searching for Speed and Consistency at Knoxville Raceway

Knoxville, IA – July 7, 2022

by Justin Snyder, Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Knoxville Raceway

Justin Henderson wheeled the Mike Sandvig Motorsports No. 7 410 Sprint Car to a 12th-place finish Saturday night at Knoxville Raceway. 

 

After multiple weekends filled with up and down results for the duo behind the wheel of a new fresh Maxim Chassis, the consistent night was a nice change of pace and has the team feeling positive going forward.

 

“We pulled out this Maxim when the Outlaws came to Huset’s and it just seems we have been chasing the car and speed,” said Henderson. “We might be turning the corner with things here and I’m hopeful we’re on the right track.”

 

Henderson began the evening by timing in 18th quickest in qualifying with a fastest lap of 16.691 seconds. He then advanced one position in a heat race to pick up the victory and secure a spot in the night’s $6,000-to-win feature event.

 

“The car was really good in the heat race and it felt as comfortable as it has since we pulled it out,” he said. “It’s nice to win a heat race, but we need to time better to really benefit from it.”

 

Lining up from the 13th starting position for the feature, Henderson settled just inside of the top 15 for the first half of the event. Late in the A-main he was able to move forward into the 12th position, but with the feature going non-stop and the field getting spread out, he wasn’t able to gain any more ground and settled for 12th at the checkered flag.

 

The top 15 finish was the duo’s 15th of the season in 23 starts. More importantly, it was a welcome sight following what has been a grind to find the perfect mixture of comfort and speed since rolling out a brand new Maxim Chassis a few weeks back.

 

“Mike and the guys are working really hard to get this thing rolling good and I know we’ve got a car and team capable of winning and running up front,” he said. “I’ve been around this sport for a while and I know as much as anyone that sometimes it just takes time. It could be the smallest thing keeping us from getting everything out of the car that we can and I’m confident in Maxim’s product and our team that we’ll get there very soon.”

 

Next up for the duo will be another Saturday of racing at Knoxville Raceway this weekend.

 

With some of the bigger  events on the schedule approaching quickly, Henderson is hopeful the team can turn a corner and get back to their consistency and winning ways.

 

“We’d like to maybe be doing some racing at other tracks with the Outlaws, but Knoxville holds the most importance to us right now as we are focused on the Knoxville Nationals coming up soon,” said Henderson. “We got our good car back that we crashed a few weeks back and we’re close to getting this new one dialed in.

 

“In racing you can’t live off one car and one package, so while we know the old Maxim is good and fast, we’ve got to get this one right if we want to be a complete and successful program. So, I’m looking forward to getting back to Knoxville and getting ourselves ready to take a shot at a crown jewel in the Nationals later this season.”
