He bookended the weekend with Tennessee triumphs at I-75 Raceway and 411 Motor Speedway.
“It feels great to finally get a pair of wins on the books for 2022. We’ve been close to Victory Lane for the past two months, and we finally put it altogether this weekend at I-75 (Raceway) and 411 (Motor Speedway),” Henderson said. “We’ve got a really good piece here, and it’s great to finally have something to show for it. As always, I want to thank all of our great marketing partners, who make this all possible.”
