“I still don’t know how I wasn’t collected in the crash when Rusty (Ballenger) and Cameron (Marlar) got together there. Those guys were racing hard for the win, and I hated to see them got knocked out, but we were in the right place to capitalize on the opportunity and got the win,” Henderson said after claiming his 15th win of the 2021 campaign. “This team is clicking better every week, and it seems as we continue to learn and improve. Can’t thank this great group that is part of this enough.

“We’re going to take this weekend off to get ready for the Powell Memorial at All-Tech (Raceway) next weekend. We’ve had a great year, but a $26,000 payday would really be the icing on the cake.”

Matt Henderson was one of 20 competitors entered at 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tenn.) on Tuesday evening to compete in the Crate Late Model portion of the Castrol FloRacing Night in America event.

With the fourth-fastest qualifying effort placing him on the second row for the feature, Henderson took advantage of a late-race tangle between the front-runners to capture his 15th win of the season and a $1,500 payday. He finished ahead of Josh Henry, Perry Delaney, Greg Martin, and Bradley Lewelling.

1Friday night found Matt Henderson adding another accolade to his stellar 2021 campaign. The Tennessee racer piloted his Stanco Equipment Co.

The victory was his 14th of the season.

“Friday night was a picture-perfect night for our team with the exception of my hand getting burned after hot laps. We had a coolant system problem, and I burnt my hand bleeding the system off. It probably looked worse than it was, and it didn’t help that my firesuit and gloves kept rubbing it, but we made it through the night and got the win,” Henderson shared. “On Saturday night it unfortunately rained during our qualifying laps, which left us starting 10th in a heat race. We made the decision to call it a night and save our equipment. Just one of those deals, but still a great weekend for our team.”

1On Friday evening, Matt Henderson visited Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Ala.) to enter his Vineyard Lawn No. 17 Late Model into the opening round of the two-day Red Farmer Tribute.

With 39 Crate Racin’ USA Late Model entries on hand, Henderson’s 13.627-second lap in time trials earned him the fast time honors and the pole position for the opening night feature.

Leading flag-to-flag in the 37-lap affair, Matt cruised to his 14th win of the season, which came ahead of Tim Busha, Jadon Frame, Jimmy Thomas, and Josh Adkins. He earned $3,700.

With rain striking during qualifications on Saturday, Matt took part in his time trial session but was a scratch from the remainder of the evening.
