Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September
8, 2017) – This weekend will be a first for Aaron Reutzel and
the Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution/BC Fundz No. 87 Triple-X
Sprint Car team as the Clute, TX, racer takes to Pennsylvania
Posse territory for the first time in his career.
And for good reason, with a $50,000
winner’s share up for grabs in Saturday’s Tuscarora 50 at Port
Royal Speedway following a $5,000-to-win tilt on Friday night.
Both events are sanctioned by the All Star Circuit of
“I’m looking forward to it, the tracks
there always look to be really racy,” Reutzel said of the
upcoming weekend. “It’s going to be an
experience for sure.”
Reutzel and the Wren Motorsports/Momentum
Racing Suspensions team are looking to put the last weekend’s
action at the Jackson Motorplex in the past as quickly as
“It was the worst weekend that we have had
in a long time,” Reutzel says.
Friday’s portion started out strong with a
good heat race run and then redrawing the number two pill to
start outside the front row of the feature.
It was one that wasn’t meant to be for the Nattress
Construction/Wings Unlimited team though, as rain washed out the
night’s feature event.
Saturday brought double duty for Reutzel
and the Wright Way Logistics/Walker Performance team.
The 410-ci effort was essentially stopped
short before it got started. “We broke a
shifter cable in qualifying,” Reutzel says of the lap that put
them at the tail of the field. “That
basically put us in start-and-park mode the rest of the night.”
The Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour 360-ci
portion of the night wasn’t much better, with Reutzel mired in
the back of a tough heat. “We had a loaded
heat and just couldn’t really go anywhere,” Reutzel recalls.
Reutzel was on the move in the “B” Main,
leading the way until mechanical problems brought an early end
to a long night.
With a half dozen wins already to his
credit in 2017, the past ASCS National champion now looks for
his first taste of Posse success at this weekend’s Tuscarora 50
at Port Royal Speedway.
