Lonnie Wheatley, JACKSON, Minn. (June 2,
2017) – After a wild ride to close out the opening night of the
Jackson Nationals for Aaron Reutzel, the Clute, TX, racer and
the Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution/BC Fundz No. 87 Triple-X
Sprint Car team are already preparing for Friday’s second night
of World of Outlaws action following a quick trip to the
It was a night that started out well for
Reutzel and the Wren Motorsports/Momentum Racing Suspensions
team at the Jackson (MN) Motorplex with a solid qualifying
effort and a runner-up heat race finish that put him in the Dash
where he finished seventh in a new car that he and Shane Liebig
had just assembled.
But, just a few laps into the feature, the
caution lights flickered for a Kraig Kinser flip in turn three.
As a car checked up in front of him, Reutzel jumped the
right rear tire and went for a wild series of end-over-end flips
down the frontstretch.
Emergency personnel were on the scene
immediately as Reutzel exited the Nattress Construction/Wings
A trip to the hospital followed with CT
scans of Reutzel’s head and back coming back clear.
With just the expected bumps and bruises
from such a ride, Reutzel and the Wright Way Logistics/Walker
Performance team expect to be back on track for Friday’s second
round of Jackson Nationals competition.
Those unable to take in this weekend’s
Jackson Nationals can watch all the action live on-line via PPV
