FORMULA
Empirical: a(n) = (55/84)*n^8 + (67/7)*n^7 + (151/4)*n^6 + 70*n^5 + (1061/12)*n^4 + (521/6)*n^3 + (1377/28)*n^2 + (445/42)*n + 1.
Conjectures from Colin Barker, Nov 12 2018: (Start)
G.f.: x*(354 + 5191*x + 17091*x^2 + 9231*x^3 - 4393*x^4 - 1117*x^5 + 51*x^6 - 9*x^7 + x^8) / (1 - x)^9.
a(n) = 9*a(n-1) - 36*a(n-2) + 84*a(n-3) - 126*a(n-4) + 126*a(n-5) - 84*a(n-6) + 36*a(n-7) - 9*a(n-8) + a(n-9) for n>9.
