HOW DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN RACING AND HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU RACED?: Being around race cars at home in the family’s garage and at racetracks is basically all I’ve ever known in life. I grew up watching my papaw (Runah Henry), dad (Skimp Henry) and uncle (Shawn Henry) race, and I wanted to be like them when I got old enough and drive a race car. … I started racing when I was 12 years old in Front Wheel Drive, then moved up to Mini Stock, followed by running Street Stock/Modified Street, and once dad stopped racing I began running a Crate Late Model. I currently compete in both the Crate Late Model and Street Stock classes.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY FROM RACING?: Getting my first-ever win at Volunteer Speedway back in 2006, on the same night my dad (Skimp Henry) also won. Father and son parked in victory lane, it just doesn’t get no better than that!

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY OUTSIDE OF RACING?: I don’t really have any hobbies besides racing. I just enjoy hanging out with my family and friends.
