Empire State Triple for Reutzel after
Mansfield Prelim Win
Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (June 7,
2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel
Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team had a
$100,000 payday in their sights.
But Mother Nature had other ideas.
Following a Thursday night rainout,
Reutzel raced to victory lane in his Friday

competition this weekend for the Folkens
Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole
Revolution Triple-X team with a set of events in
the Empire State beginning at Dundee, New York’s
Outlaw Speedway on Frida night before moving on
to Busti’s Stateline Speedway on Saturday and
then Weedsport Speedway on Sunday.
Reutzel raced to finishes of fourth and
third at Outlaw Speedway in All Star competition
last year and posted a fourth-place finish at
Weedsport in the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood
Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine.
The reigning All Star Circuit of Champions
titlist enters the weekend atop the series point
charts with victories in the series most recent
pair of events over Memorial Day Weekend.
Reutzel ran that streak to three wins in a
row with a perfect night at Mansfield Motor
Speedway last Friday, setting quick time in his
qualifying group and then making a last-lap move
to win his heat race and then posting his fourth
overall win of the season.
He looks to add to the win column this
weekend in New York before embarking upon the
All Stars Ohio Sprint Speedweek that features
nine nights of racing over as many days
beginning next Friday.
