SPOTLIGHT ON SPEED: JOSH HENERY

В В В  The Factory Stock division in the Saturday Super Showdown Stock Car Series has featured a hotly-contested points race all season and 26-year-old Overbrook driver Josh Henery has been happy to be a part of it.В 

В  В "It would be more comfortable if I was ahead, but I kind of started in the back in points and worked my way up, so I'm glad to be where I'm at,'' Henery said prior to Saturday night's races. "We've got some good competitors, so it's fun, good clean racing ... sometimes.''В 

В  В Even though Henery would love to win his first track championship, he said he's concentrating more on winning than he is the points race.В 

В  В "You've got to give it your best shot and hope everything goes well,'' said Henery, who is in his third year of Factory Stock racing, with a best of seventh in the final points standings.В 

В  В Henery comes by his love of racing naturally, as the Henery family has been involved in the sport for a long time. Henery's brother and uncle are also currently competing at in the Super Showdown Series.В 

В  В "My family's been racing for years, so it's just one of those things I got into when we could afford it,'' Henery said.В 

В  В Henery would eventually like to move up to the Modified class, but is in no big hurry to make that jump.В 

В  В "The ideal deal is to move up to Modified, but we'll see where we go from here,'' Henery said. "Win some races, that's all I'm concerned about.''В
