Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas
(June 9, 2017) – Following a nasty ride last Thursday
night at the Jackson (MN) Nationals that ultimately
sidelined him for the balance of the weekend, Aaron
Reutzel and the Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution/BC
Fundz No. 87 Triple-X Sprint Car team will be back in
action for the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Speedweek.
ASCS Speedweek features seven
nights of racing at seven different tracks throughout
Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri over the course of nine
Reutzel originally planned on
finishing out last weekend’s Jackson Nationals, but
thought better of it as Friday progressed.
“That morning I felt good and
thought I would be fine to race that night,” Reutzel
says. “But as the day went on, it
kind of set it and I just wasn’t feeling as well.
We decided it was best to just sit out the rest
of the weekend and get rested up for Speedweek.”
A few days of rest have done
wonders for Reutzel.
“There are still a few bumps and
bruises, just a little sore,” Reutzel said.
“But we’ll be good to go racing.”
It all starts Friday night at a
new venue for Reutzel and the Wren Motorsports/Momentum
Racing Suspensions team at Lubbock’s West Texas Raceway.
“That’s the one that’s a new one
for us,” Reutzel said.
Action moves on to Amarillo’s
Route 66 Motor Speedway on Saturday, where Reutzel
finished second last year. “That’s
one I should have won last year, so maybe I can get that
one back this time.”
After two idle nights, the balance
of Speedweek for Reutzel and the Nattress
Construction/Wings Unlimited team includes Devil’s Bowl
Speedway (Mesquite, TX) on Tuesday, Lawton (OK) Speedway
on Wednesday, Creek County Speedway (Sapulpa, OK) on
Thursday, Randolph County Raceway (Moberly, MO) on
Friday, June 16, and Lucas Oil Speedway (Wheatland, MO)
on Saturday, June 17.
Reutzel, who won the most recent
Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour event aboard the Wright Way
Logistics/Walker Performance entry on May 11 at Kansas
City’s Lakeside Speedway, is no stranger to ASCS
“How your luck is going can play a
big role on how your Speedweek goes,” Reutzel says.
“How you’re drawing and how things fall into
place can make it a good week or a bad week.”
Sitting fifth in Lucas Oil ASCS
National Tour points entering Speedweek, Reutzel looks
for a strong week to close the gap as he guns for a
second series title in three years after capturing the
2017 Quick Stats:
30 races, 1 win, 6 top-fives, 11 top-tens.
