Jimmy Henderson Returns To ARCA; Hooks Up With TC Motorsports
Sparta, Kentucky - - Georgia native Jimmy Henderson returns to the ARCA RE/MAX Series this weekend taking the reins of the No. 35 Flagship RV Chevrolet Monte Carlo for TC Motorsports.
Henderson, who competed in several American Speed Association events this season will return to the tour for the first time since July 27th, 2003 which saw him take a freighting hit at Pocono Raceway on lap two after contact with Jason Jarrett.
"I'm looking forward to competing in the ARCA RE/MAX Series again," stated Henderson, who resides in Conyers. "Pocono was a tough break for my ARCA career, but when Mr. Clower asked me to drive for him, I couldn't turn it down."
Flagship RV will return to the No. 35 Chevrolet Monte Carlo as the primary sponsor for Friday's night event. In addition, Crown Spray Power joins the ARCA RE/MAX Series team as an associate sponsor for their fourth event of the 2004 season.
Calling the shots for Henderson on Friday night, will be longtime crew member Donnie Poole.
Rolling into Kentucky Speedway, the team has competed in four Superspeedway events this season. The Loganville Georgia team started their season off at Daytona, followed by events at Nashville, Kentucky, and Lowes Motor Speedway.
Wayne Anderson maneuvered the team to two powerful top-ten finishes with a sixth at Kentucky, followed by a fifth place finish at Lowes Motor Speedway in May.
"The team has had some strong results this year, there's no reason why we shouldn't be just as competitive this weekend," Jimmy continued.
Henderson, who hopes to compete in a NASCAR Busch Series event later this season has no prior ARCA starts at the 1.5 mile-oval.
"I've never raced at Kentucky in the ARCA RE/MAX Series, but I qualified really well with the ASA car here in May. We were fast in practice, fast in time trials, but were washed out in an early wreck, I hope we can do all the same, plus beat the gremlins."
At this point, Henderson has announced this is a one-race affiliation with TC Motorsports, but he is confident that he may be behind the wheel more often. "We're going to race at Kentucky, then we'll see where it goes. All the sponsors will be attending the race this weekend, so we look as a team to make the best of it. I would like to do more racing with the team, sponsors and in the ARCA division."
The Kentucky 150 on 700 WLW Pole Night is the 12th of 22 events on the 2004 ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule. For the second week in a row, the teams will endure another one-day show. First round practice is on tap Friday morning with qualifying also on the agenda this Friday afternoon July 9th, with the race set to take the green flag that night. The Speed Channel will broadcast the race live, starting at 8:00pm EST.
