Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas
(July 28, 2017) – A big weekend is on tap for Aaron
Reutzel and the Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution/BC
Fundz No. 87 Triple-X Sprint Car team after a pair of
charges through the field at Knoxville Raceway last
Reutzel raced forward through the
field to post top ten finishes in both the 410-ci and
360-ci Sprint Car features at Knoxville Raceway on
Saturday night in preparations for the upcoming
Knoxville 360 Nationals and Knoxville Nationals.
More Knoxville Raceway action is
in store for this weekend with the Lucas Oil ASCS
National Tour taking to the ˝-mile clay oval in Iowa on
Saturday night. It will follow 410-ci
Sprint Car action at Minnesota’s Jackson Motorplex on
Friday night with more ASCS competition at Iowa’s Mason
City Motor Speedway on Sunday rounding out the weekend.
The theme of the night for Reutzel
at Knoxville last Saturday was similar in both
“I ruined both our laps in
qualifying in both cars, I messed up coming off four and
it killed both laps,” Reutzel says.
“In the 360, I jumped the cushion coming off four and
got sideways and then in the 410 I drove up on the berm
in then got in the grease.”
Reutzel overcame the qualifying
miscues to put together a solid night, racing to ninth
in the 360-ci feature and then tenth in the 410-ci
feature aboard the Wren Motorsports/Momentum Racing
After winning his 360-ci heat
race, Reutzel gridded the feature midpack and was
sitting seventh just two laps into the main event.
“I drove in deep on (Sawyer)
Phillips, I tried to drag brake and jammed the breaks
too much and spun myself,” Reutzel recalls.
Mired deep in the field, Reutzel
rallied back through the field to post a ninth-place
finish aboard the Nattress Construction/Wings Unlimited
“We had good speed, we were able
to go wherever they weren’t,” Reutzel says.
“We were good all over.”
The 410-ci Sprint Car feature was
more of the same with Reutzel rallying from the 19th
starting position to round out the top ten in the Wright
Way Logistics/Walker Performance entry.
“We were good, the car was what we
needed it to be,” Reutzel comments.
“I just can’t put myself in a hole like that in
A three night weekend of action
gets under way at Jackson, MN, on Friday before a pair
of big Nationals weekend in Knoxville, IA.
