FREMONT, Ohio — Cap Henry used to have a love-hate relationship with Fremont Speedway. But in 2019, the Republic, Ohio, driver has taken a shine to The Track That Action Built.
Henry drove to his third 410 sprint win of the season at the track Saturday night.
“The crew did a great job on the track tonight,” Henry said. “You could run all over it. Historically I hated this place but now I’m having some fun here. The car felt pretty maneuverable. I wasn’t quite sure what my crew chief was telling me with the hand signals so I was moving around a little bit and kind of got into a rhythm there around the bottom. The last five I kind of worried because I wasn’t sure of that was the right thing to do.”
D.J. Foos finished second with Nate Dussel, Buddy Kofoid and Travis Philo rounding out the top five.
Paul Weaver used patience with lapped cars and drove to his second straight Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature in a race that went green to checkers, taking a little over seven minutes to complete the 25 laps. It’s his third win of the year at Fremont and the 50th overall of his career at the track placing him eighth on the all-time win list.
“I could tell the track slowed down and I noticed a lot of guys were running in between the tires and throwing up the marbles and every other lap you didn’t know if the car was going to take out from under you. I thought they are doing so I’ll slow the guys down behind me and do it too,” said Weaver.
Shawn Valenti doubled up in the Burmeister Trophy Dirt Trucks, winning the make-up feature from May and the night’s regular event.
