Souix Falls, S.D. — (January 4, 2013) —  Popular sprint car driver Justin Henderson is available to join another top sprint car team for the 2013 season, as he and Blazin Racin parted ways on Thursday.


“I want to thank Todd, Susan and Larissa LaHaise for everything they’ve done for me in the past six months,” Henderson said.  “I also want to thank my crew chief/team manager, Greg McCormick, and give special thanks to Dean, Andrea and everyone else from Blazin Racin who helped out along the way.


“I also want to thank my product sponsors for always standing behind me,” he added.  “They include Hinchman Racewear, ButlerBuilt Professional Seat Systems, Bell Helmets, Rod End Supply, Winters Performance, KSE Racing Products, Saldana Racing Products, Weld Wheels, Outerwears, Oakley and Restart Communications.


“I’m looking forward to the next opportunity to race hard and win races,” he added.


Blazin Racin enjoyed a great deal of success after car owners Todd and Susan LaHaise hired Henderson to drive their Buffalo Wild Wings No. 82 last June. Some of their accomplishments included a fourth at the Kings Royal at Eldora (Ohio) Speedway; making the A main at the Knoxville Nationals in Knoxville, Iowa and winning that event’s preliminary feature on Friday, and victories with the World of Outlaws, the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) and the Interstate Racing Association (IRA) Outlaw Sprints.  Those victories included events at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, S.D.; LoneStar Speedway in Kilgore, Texas and Beaver Dam Raceway in Beaver Dam, Wis., in addition to Knoxville.


In addition to competing with the World of Outlaws and other sprint car groups, Henderson raced on the tough Central Pennsylvania circuit in recent years with Sorokach Motorsports.
