Henson Sweeps Front Wheel Drives Figure 8 Action

By Ken de la Bastide

(July 15, 2013) - Although Kevin Henson has put together an outstanding season in the Front Wheel Drive Figure-8 Division, he had only swept the competition once in 2013.

Henson set fast time, won a heat race and the feature way back on April 6 on the opening night of the season. During Poet Biorefining Night at
Anderson Speedway, Henson repeated the feat.

Henson jumped into the lead at the start of the feature race chased by
teammate Elliot McKinney and Brian McKinney.

On the second lap Elliott McKinney pulled out of competition which allowed Henson to power away from his remaining competitors.

On lap five Mark Allman and Randy Hoppes took advantage of a slip by Brian McKinney coming off the second corner to claim the second and third positions. McKinney finished fourth with Jerry Swinford coming home in fifth.

Henson led the entire distance to win the heat race with Elliott McKinney
passing Brian on the second lap coming off turn two.

Elliott McKinney parked his ride with two laps remaining. Henson was followed to the checkers by Brian McKinney.

During qualifications Henson turned a lap at 20.696-seconds to top the
speed chart followed by Elliott McKinney at 20.738-seconds.

For Henson it was his fourth quick time of the year, third heat victory
and fifth feature win in 2013.
