Cap Henry Takes Sharon Speedway’s Buckeye Cup In Final Corner Drag Race

Tommy Hinnershitz Classic presented by KRS Graphics - Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 - Williams Grove Speedway - 4 Cap Henry

HARTFORD, OH – It was down to the wire for Cap Henry and Lane Racing in Sharon Speedway’s annual Buckeye Cup, ultimately scoring their first Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory of the 2022 season with an epic final corner dive and drag race over Myerstown, Pennsylvania’s Brent Marks. Henry, who led just the final half-straightaway of the 30-lap Buckeye Cup program, made his winning move when Marks attempted to clear a bundle of slower traffic in the final corner, opening the door for Henry to squeeze through on the bottom and out sprint Marks to the line.

The victory, earning the Republic, Ohio, native a $6,500 payday, $500 of which on behalf of Krill Recycling, bumps Henry’s career total to seven with “America’s Series,” this being the first at Sharon Speedway. Brent Marks, who led lap 29, held on to finish second, followed by Parker Price-Miller, Zeb Wise, and George Hobaugh. Hobaugh led the first 28 laps before handling issues allowed multiple cars to slip by. At one time, his lead was commanding, stretching to nearly a full straightaway over Henry and Marks until caution flags appeared on lap 23. Marks ultimately slipped by Hobaugh to lead lap 29.

“I saw Brent (Marks) miss the bottom there in the final two corners and I drove this thing in there as hard as I could…harder than I have the whole race. I think we bumped tires there coming off of four. I didn’t do it on purpose…I just wanted to try and win one,” Cap Henry said in Sharon Speedway victory lane, ace of the Blake’s Hard Cider No. 4. “You never want to get too confident, but this team has been doing all of the right things. We started the year off a lot better than we did last year. I’m just so proud of everyone involved.”

UP NEXT:
The highbanks of Waynesfield Raceway Park in Waynesfield, Ohio, will conclude the All Stars’ upcoming three-race weekend, set to host the regional travelers on Sunday, May 1. Although a short history with the Series when compared to its weekend schedule mates, Waynesfield is certainly memorable and exciting, providing an elbows-up experience for all who compete. Cole Duncan and Kyle Larson were each victorious at the raceway in 2021 with Larson earning the win during Ohio Sprint Speedweek. It is noted that, should this event be subject to cancellation due to weather, the program will be moved to Sunday, May 15.
