Henry and McGrath find Victory Lane at Saturday Night Sprint Car Special at Attica Raceway Park




ATTICA, Ohio – After crash on opening night at Attica Raceway Park a couple of weeks ago, defending track champion Cap Henry of Republic, Ohio, rebounded with a dominating performance Saturday, April 13 to take the $6,000 top prize of the Core & Main Spring Nationals presented by Erie Blacktop and Smith Paving.


Henry, aboard the Jeff Ward Motorsports #33W, led all 30 laps of the Callie’s Performance Products 410 Sprint A-main though he was challenged early by Cale Thomas and held off a charging Emerson Axsom late for his 17th career Attica division win, placing him seventh on the all-time 410 win list at the track.


Axsom drove from ninth to a second place finish with Greg Wilson, Trey Jacobs and Zane DeVault rounding out the top five on the challenging track that took over four inches of rain the two days prior to the event.


“I’ll be honest, it was all I had to hang onto that thing. I needed those red flags and cautions. The car was really good…I’d say I was about 50 percent. I knew we had to get going and I was trying to pick my pace and maintain for a long time. Cale (Thomas) showed me his nose wing once and got by me in traffic and luckily the caution came out and we got it back. This goes to these guys over here (his crew). I tore this thing up a couple of weeks ago and they put it back together and never gave up,” said Henry beside his Premier Planning Services, Jeff Ward Demolition, Ohio Logistics, Primal Tee Shop, Elliott’s Custom Trailers and Carts, FK Rod Ends, Griff’s Engines backed machine.


Jimmy McGrath of Clyde, Ohio, has led a lot of 305 sprint features and finished second a lot. He finally got the monkey off his back Saturday at Attica, leading all 25 laps of the Fremont Fence feature to claim his first ever sprint car win. It wasn’t easy for McGrath as many cautions and red flags caused several restarts with one caution actually handing him back the lead after Jamie Miller had just passed him.


Steve Rando, Brandon Moore, Tyler Shullick and John Ivy would round out the top five.

“This feels good…it doesn’t seem real. I wasn’t thinking about a lot. I just drove it as hard as I could right through the middle and hoped it stuck and stayed on all fours,” said McGrath beside his Awesome Racewear, Wood Wizard, Level Utilities, Level Performance, JP Builders, BSE Fab. WDLC Sheds, Sulfer Town Pub, D2 Excavating backed #5jr.


Attica Raceway Park will be back in action Friday, April 19 on Baumann Auto Group/7L Construction/Venture Visionary Partners Night. The All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series presented by the Baumann Auto Group will kick off its season for the 410 sprints as will the NAPA of Bryan AFCS presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales for the 305 sprints. The Dirt Nerds Podcast Powered by Propane UMP Late Models will also be in action.
