Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas
(November 9, 2017) – It all began at Florida in
February. Now, a quick nine months
later, Aaron Reutzel and the Dissolvalloy Downhole
Revolution/BC Fundz No. 87 Triple-X Sprint Car team will
finish out the 2017 season with a three-day weekend in
far southwest Arizona.
And it’s a place that Reutzel has
found to his liking in the past.
Sitting a solid second in Lucas
Oil ASCS National Tour points, Reutzel looks to finish
out the season strong aboard the Wren
Motorsports/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry at Cocopah
Speedway near Yuma, AZ. Action begins
on Thursday night with two more rounds of competition on
Friday and Saturday.
Reutzel topped last year’s season
finale at Cocopah. He also enjoyed
his first 410-ci Sprint Car win at Cocopah at the outset
of the 2015 season.
“We always have good speed there,”
the driver of the Nattress Construction/Wings Unlimited
Reutzel enters the Cocopah weekend
coming off a Devil’s Bowl Winter Nationals triumph that
ran his season total to seven wins among more than 40
overall top-tens in another stellar season for the
Clute, TX, racer.
As always in ASCS competition,
heat race success in this weekend’s Cocopah triple will
be paramount. “Hopefully we can get
through our heat in good shape and go from there,”
Reutzel comments. “As long as we
don’t get buried too far back, we usually have good
enough speed at Cocopah to finish strong.”
In a season that has included
nearly 80 race nights for the driver of the Wright Way
Logistics/Walker Performance entry, another victory lane
trip or two would be the ideal way to transition into a
2017 Quick Stats:
76 races, 7 wins, 29 top-fives, 43 top-tens.
Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour season finale at Yuma,
Arizona’s Cocopah Speedway on November 9-11.
