June 5, 2021 - Henderson cruises in Thunder in the Mountains at Crossville
1 Matt Henderson added another feature win to the tally on Friday night at Crossville Speedway. Leading flag-to-flag in the feature he recorded his ninth triumph of the season.

His latest victory came aboard his Stanco Equipment Co. No. 17 Vineyard Lawn / CVR Race Car / Hendren Racing Engine Late Model.

“This East Tennessee scene is no joke, and on any given night there’s easily 10-12 guys who can win, so to keep taking this No. 17 CVR Race Car to Victory Lane says a lot about our team. It’s an honor for me to get to drive it,” Henderson said. “On Saturday night the Topless Outlaw event at Richmond got canceled, so we made the last-minute decision to take our No. 00 Steel Head Late Model to Lake Cumberland Speedway for their Super Late Model event. Despite being at a horsepower disadvantage we were running fifth in the feature, until we had a right-rear tire blow. Even though we had some bad luck there, we had a great time at Lake Cumberland. It’s a jewel of a track with an awesome staff.”
