Reutzel Ready for Saturday’s Open Wheel Nationals

Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (April 24, 2020) – At long last, Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team will finally be back in action this weekend.

Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car crew will be gunning for Saturday’s $6,000 winner’s share in the 410-ci Sprint Car portion of Park Jefferson Speedway’s “Open Wheel Nationals” in North Sioux City, SD.

It will be the first time atop the Park Jefferson oval for Reutzel aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine.

“It will be nice to just get back on the track and get an actual race in,” Reutzel commented.

It will mark Reutzel’s first on-track action since winning East Bay Raceway Park’s “King of 360” Nationals near Tampa, FL, February 15.  All scheduled races since have either been postponed or canceled altogether due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The “King of 360” Nationals triumph was already Reutzel’s fourth of the young 2020 season in just 18 starts with a pair of All Star Circuit of Champions victories in Florida to go along with a World Series SprintCar win in Australia in January.

The two-time and reigning All Star champion looks to continue his winning ways on Saturday night.

2020 Quick Stats:  18 races, 4 wins, 11 top-fives, 15 top-tens.

Next Up:  “Open Wheel Nationals” at Park Jefferson Speedway in North Sioux City, SD, on Saturday.
