Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (May 24,
2019) – It has been a while.
In fact, since the last All Star Circuit
of Champions event was logged into the books on
April 11, Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel
Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team have only
been able to get on the track twice in the past
42 days due to Mother Nature.
That should all change this weekend with
an All Star weekend triple in Ohio followed up
by a Monday night World of Outlaws card in
“We’re just ready to race, I think we’ve
all had enough of the rain,” Reutzel says.
The All Star portion of the weekend begins
at Attica Raceway Park on Friday night before
moving on to Orrville’s Wayne County Raceway on
Saturday and then Fremont Speedway on Sunday.
Reutzel will finish out the Memorial Day weekend
of action aboard Folkens Brothers
Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution
Triple-X with the World of Outlaws at
Lawrenceburg Speedway on Monday.
The reigning All Star Circuit of Champions
titlist and current points leader looks to build
upon that advantage with this weekend’s set of
events aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood
Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine.
Reutzel posted three top-tens at Attica
Raceway Park last year in series action along
with another pair of top-tens at Wayne County
Raceway. Reutzel landed a sixth-place
finish in his first visit to Fremont Speedway
two years ago and rallied through the
Lawrenceburg field for a seventh-place showing
in World of Outlaws action last year.
This weekend’s action will be the first
time back on track for Reutzel and the Nattress
Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team
since a 14th-place showing in World
of Outlaws competition at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway
on May 10.
“We struggled a little bit there with the
motor,” Reutzel recalls. “It turned out
that we had a problem with a spark plug.
We weren’t really able to focus on our setup
because we were trying to get that figured out.”
After a rain-induced hiatus, Reutzel and
the BRM No. 87 are ready to get back to business
