Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing scored a career-best 15th-place finish in 410 Sprint Car competition as part of the World of Outlaws Tune-Up at Williams Grove Speedway on Friday night.

“We left the track feeling pretty good and it’s a nice feeling to be talking about moving forward and getting results,” said Jackson. “We’ve been talking a lot about top 15 finishes, and this is a step in the right direction for us as a team.”

Jackson kicked off the night by timing 23rd quickest in qualifying among 31 cars in attendance with a fastest lap of 17.483 seconds. As a result, he lined up eighth in a heat race, where he advanced one position to finish in seventh.

“We were tight in time trials, but I think maybe it was me and the line I drove and not so much the setup,” said Jackson. “You need to be fast off the trailer with these Outlaw-type races, so we didn’t help ourselves there much.”

Needing to compete in a B-main to qualify for the feature, Jackson finished where he started – fourth. As a result, he secured the 22nd starting position for the night’s $6,000 to-win feature event.

With 25 laps at his expense, Jackson meticulously worked through traffic to advance seven positions throughout the duration of the A-main. As a result, he crossed under the checkered flag in the 15th position.

“We had some help with attrition, but we passed a few guys, and we learned a lot competing with a good field of cars,” he said. “The biggest thing we were able to do was to maintain throughout the night and that makes a big difference when you’re not having to overcome so much on the track.”

Next up for the duo will be a pair of World of Outlaws starts on Wednesday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA, and Friday at Williams Grove Speedway. Depending on how things go in these two events, the team may return on Saturday for the finale at ‘The Grove.’

Riding some positive momentum into the week, Jackson is optimistic about their chances to qualify for the shows and is looking forward to the ability to learn against the best the sport has to offer.

“We’re still a bit out of our league in terms of the competition, but ultimately we’re going to try and gain experience and see where we stack up,” said Jackson. “I’ve spent a lot of time sitting in the stands watching the Outlaws and even worked on a few cars that have competed with them and I don’t know that I ever thought I’d be in this position with the opportunity to race with them. So, for the first crack at things, I’m going to soak it in a bit and just go out and do my best and hopefully we can get an A-main start or two.”

May 3 – Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA – Qualifying: 23; Heat race: 7 (8); B-Main: 4 (4); Feature: 15 (22).

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing Continue Learning Experience in the 410 Sprint Car Ranks with Three-Race Weekend

Abbottstown, PA – April 30, 2024

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing competed in three nights of racing last weekend and together they qualified for two out of three A-main events. Jackson scored finishes of 18th at BAPS Motor Speedway and 20th at Williams Grove Speedway. He failed to qualify at Port Royal Speedway.

“I wish we had more to talk about, but we’re just in a spot where we’re learning and growing,” said Jackson. “I’m used to running up front and winning races, so it can weigh on you when results are not there. But everyone keeps reminding me that this is part of the learning process and I can see we’re getting better each weekend we get out.”

Jackson kicked off the weekend on Friday at Williams Grove where he advanced to the A-main directly out of a heat race with a fifth-place finish. As a result, he lined up 20th on the grid and that’s where he would finish as well.

“I think we raced better than the results show, but unfortunately we got lapped on that first long run and it doesn’t show,” said Jackson. “We passed a lot of cars, but overall, it’s not going to show that in the books.”

Mother Nature canceled a planned trip to BAPS Motor Speedway on Saturday before it got started, so Jackson and Hess made the decision to head to Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, PA for their first-ever 410 Sprint Car start at the Speed Palace.

He was 11th quickest in group warmups before finishing eighth in a heat race. As a result, he was regulated to the B-main, where he finished 11th and failed to qualify for the feature. While the results were not what he hoped for, it was a positive learning experience for Jackson as he continues to grow behind the wheel of a 410 Sprint Car.

“We’ve been wanting to get to Port Royal, but we didn’t exactly need to get there when the track was as fast as it was,” said Jackson. “But overall, I think racing on a track like that really taught me a lot and made us better on Sunday.”

Jackson and Hess closed out the weekend with a Sunday trip to BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, PA. After timing in 2nd quickest in group time trials, Jackson locked into the A-main with a fifth-place finish in a heat race. He then finished where he started – 18th – in the A-main to score his sixth top-20 finish of the season.

“We qualified really well, and I think the credit for that might go to Port Royal and just getting used to going faster,” he said. “We overcorrected a bit for the feature in terms of setup and ultimately, we came home with another top 20 finish.”

Jackson and Hess will take part in two Sprint Car events this weekend with stops at Williams Grove on Friday and Lincoln on Saturday.

“We’re at a spot now where we feel like we should start clicking off top 15 finishes and I’m hopeful to maybe be able to show that this weekend,” he said. “The Outlaws are coming up and that weekend is kind of up in the air as we don’t want to go out there and just make laps if we don’t feel we can qualify and run well. So this weekend will be a good measuring stick for us to kind of decide what next weekend looks like and we’ll give it our best.”

WEEKEND RESULTS

April 26 – Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA – Heat race: 5 (2); Feature: 20 (20).
April 27 – Port Royal Speedway in Port Royal, PA – Heat race: 8 (6); B-main: 11 (10).
April 28 – BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, PA – Heat race: 5 (3); Feature: 18 (18).

11 races, 0 wins, 1 top 5, 1 top 10’s, 1 top 15’s, 6 top 20’s

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing Score Top-20 Finish in Weldon Sterner Memorial at Lincoln Speedway

Abbottstown, PA – April 24, 2024

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing competed last Saturday as part of the Weldon Sterner Memorial at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA, and brought home an 18th-place finish.

The top 20 finish was the fourth of the season as part of Jackson’s rookie campaign in the 410 Sprint Car ranks and continued a trend of qualifying for A-main events and learning.

“The main goal each weekend is to make the field and we were able to check that box,” said Jackson. “We’ve had some bad luck at Lincoln this year and this was really our first shot to run a full night there, so ultimately I’m happy with the run we had.”

A total of 32 410 Sprint Cars attended Lincoln on Saturday for the $20,000-to-win event and Jackson kicked off the night by qualifying fourth quickest in his group during time trials. He then finished fifth in a heat race to grab a transfer spot for the A-main.

With a goal to move forward in the feature event, Jackson lined up for the 40-lap race from the 20th starting position. He was able to advance as high as 16th on the grid, but on a tricky track, he struggled to make much ground and ultimately fell to 18th.

While he would have liked to have finished better, it was the opportunity to learn from the leaders and try new things in lapped traffic that had Jackson most excited.

“Once I got lapped by Macri, I just kind of settled in behind him and honestly that was quite the learning experience just seeing where he was running and what he was doing,” he said. “I saw he was running the top and I jumped up there a time or two and it just felt good to kind of branch out and show what I’m capable of.”

This upcoming weekend will be a busy one for Jackson and Scott Hess Racing as they’re set to compete in three different events. They’ll tackle 410 Sprint Car action on Friday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA, and Sunday at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, PA.

“The 410 Sprint Car shows are utilizing the same formats we’ve been seeing all year, so we have a good idea of what to expect going into them,” said Jackson. “We’ll stick to the plan of getting in the feature for both shows and hopefully we can compete for some top 15’s.”

In between the two 410 starts, Jackson will compete in the winged Super Sportsman competition at BAPS on Saturday as part of the Larry Jackson Tribute race. While the race honors his father and he enters as the defending champion of the event, Jackson knows it will be tough to come out and repeat against a stellar field of competitors.

“We obviously know what it takes to win in the sportsman division, and it is nice to gain a little confidence by picking up a win in my dad’s race, but this is our first winged Sportsman event of the year,” said Jackson. “There’s going to be a full field of guys who have been working hard and running fast each weekend in the Sportsman division and we’re kind of coming in as an outsider. I’d love to get a win, but we’ll just do our best and enjoy the night surrounded by a lot of family and friends.”

WEEKEND RESULTS
April 20 – Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA – Heat race: 5 (3); Feature: 18 (20).

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

UP NEXT
Friday, April 26th, at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, PA., Saturday, April 27th, at BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, PA., Sunday, April 28th at BAPS Motor Speedway.

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing Make the Best of Rainy Weekend with Best Career 410 Sprint Car Finish

York Haven, PA – April 16, 2024

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Tony Jackson and Scott Hess Racing continued to make strides in the 410 Sprint Car ranks as the Newville, PA native brought home a career-best 16th-place finish on Sunday at BAPS Motor Speedway.

Jackson and Hess initially planned to compete in three consecutive nights of racing in the 410 Sprint Car ranks, but rain again reared its ugly head and canceled planned action at Williams Grove on Friday and Lincoln Speedway on Saturday.

“We briefly considered running Port Royal on Saturday, but it just didn’t look like it would be a great time weather-wise and with the wind,” said Jackson. “In terms of BAPS, they watered the track and it was pretty top dominant. I was probably running a half lane lower than the guys in front of us and that’s a prime example of the learning curve and just where I need to grow.” 

A total of 43 410 Sprint Cars attended BAPS on Sunday and Jackson kicked off the night by qualifying second quickest in his group during time trials. He then finished where he started – third – to lock himself into the A-main with the 12th starting position.

“We knew we had to be fast out the gate and we got a pretty good start to the heat race and was running second,” he said. “Ultimately, we slipped back to third and were able to get in the show which is obviously the goal each week.”

With a plan to continue to learn and make laps in mind, Jackson stayed steady inside of the top 15 for most of the 25-lap event. He narrowly missed out on his first career top-15 finish in the division after finishing 16th. However, with the high number of cars on hand, the team was happy to get in the show and bring the car home in one piece.

“Outside of a sanctioned event, I can’t really think of too many instances this early in the year to have 43 cars at the track,” said Jackson. “I didn’t expect that and I knew we had an uphill climb just to get in the show as a result. So ultimately to get in the show and run 16th is a pretty cool deal for us as a team and it’s something we can be proud of.”

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

“Mother Nature doesn’t look like it will do us any favors this weekend, but I’m excited to get back to the track and start contending for top 15 finishes and not just making shows,” said Jackson. “Lincoln is a track that I’ve kind of struggled at, but ultimately I think we’re learning there and hopefully we get in two A-main starts this weekend and some positive results.”

WEEKEND RESULTS

 April 14 – BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, PA – Heat race: 3 (3); Feature: 16 (12). 

 SEASON STATS

 7 races, 0 wins, 1 top 5, 1 top 10’s, 1 top 15’s, 3 top 20’s

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

Mechanicsburg, PA – April 2, 2024

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

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!”

WEEKEND RESULTS

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

Photo Credit:  Jeremy Zarfos / WRT Speedwerx

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

Audition Aced: Justin Henderson Secures Kreitz Racing Ride for 2024 Racing Season

Concord, NC – November 10, 2023

by Justin Snyder / Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Photo Credit:  Derick Kriner Photography

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Following a successful weekend at The Dirt Track at Charlotte that saw Justin Henderson put the Kreitz Racing No. 69k in the feature all three nights with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, Henderson has been named the driver of the famed powder-blue Sprint Car for the 2024 racing season.

While a complete schedule will be ironed out over the offseason, the deal will see Henderson pilot the car for all events excluding Port Royal Speedway, where Logan Wagner will return to the car for 2024.

“I’ve been hoping and praying for an opportunity like this and when Donnie called me to say he was choosing me for 2024, I was extremely excited,” said Henderson. “I can’t speak with full certainty of what all races we’ll be doing next season, but it’s a great feeling knowing that this is taken care of, and I can focus on driving the car and winning races now.”

As a veteran driver, Henderson has been around the block regarding the Sprint Car scene. He’s raced around the country for some well-known car owners and won a lot of events. However, while his resume speaks for itself and his talent is undeniable, he’s very aware that opportunities like this don’t come along often for a 44-year-old that many would say is getting towards the end of his career.

While he’s cognizant of what’s at stake and where he is in terms of his career, Henderson is excited to tackle the challenge and is confident in his ability to win races in the car.

“When I even talked about getting in the car to close out the season, I really only expected a handful of shows and we’d move on,” he said. “When Donnie told me he wanted to ease my mind and tell me the ride was mine, I couldn’t be any more relieved.”

“There’s some extra pressure when you are in a car like this and frankly, I’m getting towards to time of my driving career where I’m starting to think about what’s next,” he added. “With the people and resources they have, I’ve got the golden ticket and if I can’t make this deal work, maybe it’s time for me to start doing something else.”

The team most recently finished where they started – 18th – in Saturday night’s World Finals finale and has one more event together on the slate for the 2023 racing season. They’ll head to BAPS Motor Speedway in York Haven, PA on Saturday, November 11th, to compete in the $25,000 to-win Les Stewart Showdown.

With his plans for 2024 taken care of and a few races under his belt in the No. 69k, Henderson is feeling confident about his chances of taking home the big check and hoagie that will greet the winner in victory lane.

“Not that I particularly needed it, but I’ve been feeding myself big doses of confidence since I got in this car and I think it’s time that we maybe eat something different.  I hear there is a hoagie on the line along with some money,” laughed Henderson. “I can go into this event without having to wonder if I’m still auditioning and hopefully, I can give Donnie, Davey, and all his partners the reassurance that they chose the right guy with a win here at BAPS.”

Henderson would like to thank Hinchman Racewear, Simpson Race Products, and all the Kreitz Racing partners on the car for their continued support!

Justin Henderson Kicks Off the Weekend with a Top Ten Finish at The Dirt Track at Charlotte

Concord, NC – November 4, 2023

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Justin Henderson took the wheel of the Kreitz Racing No. 69k Sprint Car at The Dirt Track at Charlotte and delivered an encouraging performance, securing a top-ten finish to start off the weekend’s racing events.

After showing speed in time trial action on Wednesday,  in which he qualified eighth and fourth quickest in a pair of flight-A qualifiers, Henderson took to the track on Thursday with high confidence.

I messed up a little in the first round of qualifying.  I left a little out there but made better laps in Friday’s session, so we feel good going into Thursday and Friday’s shows.  Tonight is an important points night for us.” Henderson said.

He finished where he started – fourth – in a heat race event and that earned him a 14th starting position for the feature event. Continuing to show speed and keeping the car clear of any incidents after falling back a few spots in the early going, Henderson rebounded in the A-main to finish in 14th.

Henderson, known for his skill and determination on the racetrack, wowed fans, and competitors alike with his precision and speed on Friday night. He lined up second in a heat race and finished there to secure a spot in the night’s Dash.

It took two attempts to get the heat race going because of a crash on the first green flag.  That seemed to benefit Henderson.

Brian (Brown) got out on me a little on the first attempt to start the race, but I didn’t let that happen on the second attempt.” Henderson said.

He started third for the Dash and dropped back one spot to secure the fourth starting spot for the night’s A-main. Staying dedicated to the bottom of the Speedway for the first half of the feature event, Henderson struggled in lapped traffic before moving to the top of the track late. He ended up bringing home a tenth-place finish.

While the results will show that the team lost ground in the A-main, Henderson is encouraged by the speed they have shown all weekend and is looking forward to a Saturday night’s finale.  The team sits 10th overall in the 53-car field, so Henderson will line up third in a heat race and is in a good position to make the A-main.

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

Carlisle, PA – September 14, 2023

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

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.”
