Cap Henry claims Duffy Smith Memorial at Wayne County for second win of 2020 Ohio Sprint Speedweek

ORRVILLE, OH – Becoming the first repeat winner of 2020 Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry found himself back in the Speedweek limelight on Monday night at Wayne County Speedway, doing so by tracking down race-long leader, Cale Conley, and completing a winning pass with two laps remaining to secure the $6,000-to-win Duffy Smith Memorial.

Now fifth in the Ohio Sprint Speedweek standings, Henry opened the nine-race Speedweek campaign with a victory at Attica Raceway Park on Friday evening, July 3.

“When we took the checkered, I didn’t even know we took the checkered. I actually thought a caution came out and I started to get really antsy. Then, when Eric (Walls) came over the radio and said ‘top three to the scale,’ I knew the race was over,” Cap Henry laughed in Wayne County Speedway victory lane, driver of the Brett and Patty Lane-owned/Dragon’s Milk White/Beer Barrel Bourbon/Pro Auto Wraps/FK Rod Ends/No. 4 sprint car. “Man, I can’t thank this team enough. They presented me with an incredible opportunity a few years back and it has been great ever since. I’m happy we’ve been able to come out here and take advantage.”

Utilizing an inside-second row starting position, Henry, now a two-time All Star winner at ‘Orrville’s Historic Oval,’ was a contender right from the drop of the green, getting away third after the initial start before taking over second from Zeb Wise on lap eight. At the time, Cale Conley was the race leader, earning the early jump after starting second on the 30-lap grid.

Despite getting the opportunity to show his nose to Conley on several occasions, and having the chance to restart on the tail tank of the Vienna, West Virginia-native twice, once on lap ten and again on lap 13, it was not until lap 27 when Henry was presented with his first, true takeover attempt.




Throwing a slider that did not stick on lap 27, Henry made the next attempt work, this time using slower traffic as a pick to drive underneath Conley at the exit of turn four on lap 28.

“I could see the bottom was starting to come in there, so we moved down and I noticed I was starting to make some gains on Conley,” Cap Henry continued. “Even when we got to traffic there at the end, that groove was still working. It almost looked like Cale (Conely) lost his brakes because he was so committed to the top and wouldn’t come down.”

Cale Conley held on to finish second on Monday evening, followed by Rico Abreu, Jac Haudenschild and Justin Peck. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson charged from 21st to finish sixth earning the evening’s Hercules Tires Hard Charger Award.
