Henderson Doubles Up at Knoxville!
by Bill Wright


Knoxville, IA, May 23, 2015 – Justin Henderson put his name into the record books, becoming the first driver since Brian Brown a year ago to win both the 360 and 410 features in one night at the Knoxville Raceway. The 410 win on Saturday night was worth $3,000 and was also the Sioux Falls, South Dakota’s driver’s second in that class in as many weeks. Devin Kline completed the night’s winners’ list with a 305 victory.

Brian Brown, who started fourth in the 410 feature, shot to the early lead in the 20-lapper. Henderson settled into second, with Danny Lasoski grabbing third from Bill Balog on lap two. Brown separated himself from the field and entered heavy lapped traffic at the halfway point. Though Henderson saw some gains through the middle stages, it looked as if Brown would not be headed.

Unfortunately for Brown, his motor expired on lap 12 and he helplessly pulled into the infield. Henderson assumed the lead, as Lasoski, Tim Kaeding and Kerry Madsen dueled wildly for second, third and fourth.

The only stoppage of the event came on lap 15, when Matt Covington, making his first career 410 start, flipped in turn two. He was uninjured. The restart with five to go, saw Henderson leading Lasoski, Kaeding, Kerry Madsen and Davey Heskin back to green. While the duel for second, third and fourth stayed heated, Henderson would pull away in the BDS Motorsports #1 for his eighth career 410 win. Kerry Madsen went from fourth to second in the last three laps, and was followed to the stripe by Lasoski, Kaaeding and Terry McCarl. Davey Heskin, Dusty Zomer, Brooke Tatnell, Ian Madsen and hard-charger, Mark Dobmeier rounded out the top ten.

Brown set quick time, while Dustin Selvage, Dobmeier, Tatnell and Zomer won heat races. Terry McCarl won the B main.

“The track was really tricky,” said Henderson in Victory Lane. “Historically, I struggle at a track like this, but Bryan (Sundby) puts a really good car underneath me. Danny obviously had a really good car, and Brian had us all beat. My hat’s off to ‘Brownie’ for having a good car and running up front. It was bad luck for him, but we’ll take advantage, the money and the trophy. I’m really proud of this team.”

Henderson led Matt Moro and Nate Van Haaften early in the 15-lap 360 main event. Van Haaften used the low side to shoot by Moro to take over second on lap five. Clint Garner was also on the move, and shot into third on lap seven. Henderson worked through traffic easily, but when Sawyer Phillips got into the turn two wall on lap 14, it put Van Haaften back on his bumper. Henderson was never headed, however, on the way to his fourth career 360 victory here.

Garner made a last corner pass of Van Haaften for second. That pair was followed by Tony Shilling and Jon Agan. Moro, hard-charger Aaron Reutzel, Joe Beaver, Casey Friedrichsen and Russ Hall rounded out the top ten. Reutzel, who was disqualified for the wrong right rear tire in qualifying, stormed from 22nd to seventh. Garner posted quick time of the night, while Calvin Landis, Van Haaften, Jamie Ball and Randy Martin won heat races. Ricky Montgomery took the B main.

“I figured Clint and Van Haaften would be stalking me there and waiting for a mistake,” said Henderson. “I wasn’t sure how much of a lead we had, but the car was excellent. The traffic was a little easier to handle than the 410 class. This was a great racetrack, and I’m sure they’ll continue to be.”

The 305 feature was a race of attrition. Only twelve of the night’s 25 entries finished an event that was shortened to 11 laps. Devin Kline led every lap, despite seven restarts. Mitchell Alexander flipped on lap one, collecting Christopher Scank and Kade Higday, who retired. Rob Weuve and Don Dawson III were involved in a lap four incident. Corey Kautz spun, collecting Weuve on lap eight. Trevor Smith flipped on lap nine. Brad Bowman spun and collected Cody Ambers on that restart. None of the drivers were injured.

While Kline was out front, Stacey Alexander and Mike Mayberry exchanged second place five times with Alexander finally staking claim. Mayberry followed at the checkers, ahead of Ben Woods and Kevin Hetrick. McKenna Haase, Jeff Wilke, Tanner Edwards, Brad Comegys and Bowman rounded out the top ten. Mayberry posted quick time of the night, while Smith, Kline and Bowman won heat races.

“I didn’t think that race was every going to get over,” said Kline after his fourth career 305 win aboard the L&J Automotive #5J. “I just needed to calm down and hit my lines. Slower was faster tonight, and I just needed to make sure I stuck it.”

Join us next Saturday night, May 30, for Pella Corp & JDRF Race to a Cure for Diabetes Night! It will also be National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Induction weekend!
