Henes Dominates MSA Finale for First Ever Championship
Jon Henes had the point lead in MSA supermodified competition heading into Adkins Glass Championship Night. However, a bobble in qualifying by Henes gave AJ Lesiecki the fast qualifying time at 14.848 seconds as well as a one point lead. Danny Shirey won the eight lap heat race, but when feature time rolled around, it was all Jon Henes as he stormed to the front on lap three and never looked back in order to claim his first ever points championship in supermodified competition.
Denny Fisher would set the Single Source Paint Source #81 on the front row of the thirty lap feature event inside of the Dock Motorsports/Mays Polynesian Hotel #07 of Kevin Jaycox Jr. The story of the event was May Motorsports teammates Charlie Schultz and AJ Lesiecki colliding on the start of the race, sending both pitside for repairs with a complete restart looming. Fisher would go to the immediate lead over Jaycox with Jon Henes passing Danny Shirey and Jaycox for the runner-up position in turn three on the first lap. Henes and Shirey would pass Fisher for the top two spots in turn three on lap three, relegating Fisher to the third position and giving Henes a breath of fresh air in the tight point battle. Jaycox would spin in turn three on lap five after contact from “Chargin’ Charlie” Schultz, tightening the field back up with Henes leading Shirey, Fisher, Schultz and AJ Lesiecki.
Schultz would take the third position on lap five going down the back straightaway as Denny Fisher did not get going on the restart. Meanwhile, Danny Shirey was trying all he could to get by Jon Henes for the race lead. Shirey would get up to Henes but could do nothing with the veteran supermodified shoe. Fisher would get by Schultz for the reassumption of the third position with two laps to go as teammate AJ Lesiecki also took advantage of a struggling Schultz. The final finishing order would be Jon Henes, Danny Shirey, Denny Fisher, AJ Lesiecki and Charlie Schultz. Kevin Jaycox Jr., Zach Gibson and Larry Lehnert all did not complete the thirty lap affair.
The 2015 MSA points top ten are as follows: Jon Henes, AJ Lesiecki, Charlie Schultz, Kevin Jaycox Jr., Jim Paller, Joe Gillingham, Denny Fisher, Kyle Edwards, Larry Lehnert and Rich Reid. Congratulations to the 2015 Midwest Supermodified Association presented by Adkins Glass champions, Henes Racing!
