Team Bio

Kit Henry Team Manager Cap Henry RacingTeam CHR is a family-based team that traces it roots back to the late 1950’s when “Cap’s” grandfather Charles “Chuck” Henry was a successful SCCA H Production road racing driver with his 1948 MG TC. When not racing this production car, Chuck worked for the telephone company and ran a local asphalt go-kart track in Bellevue, Ohio. Unfortunately his life was cut short in a practice session in 1961 at Road America, in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. He was crowned National Champion after his demise.

His sons Paul And Kit Henry eventually picked up where their father left off racing SCCA Formula Atlantic and Continental cars successfully during the 70’s and early 80’s, amassing numerous NeOhio regional championships between the two of them. Paul was invited to the National Run offs on more than one occasion.

The team then faded for 15 years until Kit’s son “Cap” began showing an interest in racing when he was just 6 years old. Since then the team has raced at all levels of go karting successfully through out the Midwest, winning local, regional and divisional championships in WKA and SKUSA. In 1999, Kit opened the Go-Kart and Safety Gear business and called it Henry MotorSports, Inc. as a means to finance “Cap’s” racing endeavors. As the business grew and took more of Kit’s time at the track it became apparent that they needed to hire additional drivers to help maintain “Cap’s” karts at the track. Over the last few years the team has had the opportunity to work with some of the best young guns of the racing world including sprint car drivers and super modified drivers including John Ivy, Craig Mintz, and Moe Lilje, as well as Brad Bowman and others. Our family businesses have been the team’s primary funding source to this pointTeam Manager
