  1. Blake Hahn Makes it Two in a Row at I-30 Speedway’s Short Track Nationals by Lonnie Wheatley LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 5, 2019) –Blake Hahn added himself to a select list of elite racers by charging to his second consecutive Short Track Nationals championship feature win atop the high-banked, ¼-mile I-30 Speedway clay oval on Saturday night. Courtesy of Lonnie Wheatley Hahn reclaimed the point from John Carney II on the 21st circuit and led the rest of the way in the 41-lapper to take the $10,041-winner’s share in the 32nd Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires finale. “This is amazing,” Hahn said upon climbing out of the DriveWFX/Smiley’s No. 52 in victory lane. “We’ve been running well lately and to win this race twice in a row is incredible.” With the triumph, the Sapulpa, OK racer became just the fifth in STN history to win the event in back-to-back years, joining the likes of Steve Kinser (1988-1989), Gary Wright (2003-2004), Tony Bruce, Jr. (2008-2009) and, most recently, Sammy Swindell (2016-2017). Hahn bounced back from missing the cut in Friday night’s preliminary feature to race his way into Saturday’s four-car Mike Pack Building Materials “Dash for Cash”. And, after drawing the pole position, Hahn led all but the final milliseconds when Seth Bergman nipped him at the line to earn a $500 bonus and the pole for the 41-lap finale with Carson Short and Carney II earning second row starting berths. Hahn gunned into the initial lead only to surrender the point to Carney II on just the second lap. Carney II kept Hahn and company at bay in the ensuing rounds, fending off a pair of bids from Hahn along the way. Hahn began to close in as the midway point approached and dove underneath Carney II entering turn three on the 21st round to recapture the lead. With the final 23 laps run in non-stop fashion after three interruptions in the initial 18 circuits, Hahn worked through some traffic and set a rapid pace to maintain a half-straightaway lead as the laps clicked off. Carney II and Bergman diced in his wake, swapping the runner-up position several times before a tense moment in traffic allowed Bergman to secure the position. Working the cushion, Bergman chipped away at Hahn’s advantage in the closing circuits only to come up short at the line. “I think we may have had something for him if the cautions would have fallen a little different and we had got to more traffic,” the Snohomish, WA, native said after his career-best STN finish. After posting a runner-up finish in Friday’s preliminary, El Paso’s Carney II earned his best career STN championship feature finish as well by rounding out the podium in third. While the trio of Han, Bergman and Carney II monopolized the top three positions throughout the 41-lapper, position changes behind them were frequent with Sam Hafertepe, Jr., ultimately taking the fourth position after starting 13th. Hafertepe, Jr., surged over the final half of the race, gaining a handful of positions to post his fourth career STN top-five. On the charge with Hafertepe, Jr., Lindsay, Oklahoma’s Harli White rallied from 15th to become the first lady racer to crack the top five in an STN championship feature. Friday preliminary winner Derek Hagar was sixth with Howard Moore, Dylan Westbrook, Chris Martin and Charlie Louden completing the top ten after race-long, top-ten contenders Matt Covington and Carson Short tangled in turn one on the final circuit just as Hahn streaked underneath the checkered flag. The race’s first stoppage happened after seven circuits when Zach Pringle and Tony Bruce, Jr., tangled getting into turn three with Greg Wilson going off the embankment to avoid the carnage. All three were done for the night. The caution flew two rounds later Scott Bogucki’s powerplant expired with a final interruption after 18 laps when Chris Martin spun to a stop in turn one. Louden and Bogucki were the only two drivers that started a first career STN championship finale. Hagar, Louden, Eric Baldaccini, Hafertepe, Jr., Pringle, Short, Moore and Bergman each topped heat races to pick up a bonus of $100 courtesy of Jenkins Fleet Services. Martin, Bogucki, Carney II and Brandon Hanks topped qualifying races with Monty Ferriera and Brad Bowden victorious in “C” Main action before Hafertepe, Jr., Bruce, Jr., won the “B” Mains.

  2. “The Guy” Hagar Wins Short Track Nationals Prelim by Lonnie Wheatley LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (October 4, 2019) – For the first time in his career, Marion, Arkansas native Derek “The Guy” Hagar reached victory lane in an STN feature event by wiring the field in Friday night’s 25-lap preliminary at the 32nd Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires atop the high-banked ¼-mile I-30 Speedway clay oval. Courtesy of Lonnie Wheatley Hagar got the best of pole starter John Carney II on the initial start and then held off the El Paso native after a caution in the final five laps to take the $2,500 winner’s share in the STN appetizer aboard the Dynotech-powered Southern Collision Center No. 9jr J&J. “I was running as hard as I needed to keep the lead but was still trying to save the tires,” Hagar commented after besting last year’s previous best runner-up preliminary feature finish. Friday marked Hagar’s eighth career STN prelim feature run. Carney II earned the pole position over a field of 69 competitors after racing from fourth to first to win his heat race and then from sixth to first to win his qualifier to top the night’s point charts. However, it was outside front row starter Hagar diving into the first turn to take the opening lap lead. “I knew I had to get down in front of him right away,” Hagar commented. Hagar set the pace ahead of Carney II with Canada’s Dylan Westbrook moving to apply pressure for second until a lap nine bobble opened the door for Mississippi’s Dale Howard to take over third position. Working delicately through traffic from the ninth lap on, Hagar kept Carney II at bay until a caution flew with just four laps remaining when fourth-running Westbrook popped a right rear tire. Carney II tried to mount a challenge on the restart, but Hagar was up to the task and raced on to victory lane with Carney settling for runner-up honors aboard the Sander Construction/South Plains Auto Transport/Mesilla Valley Transportation No. J2 Sprint Car “I probably shouldn’t have let him cut down on me like that getting into the first turn, but we’ll take second tonight,” Carney II commented. “It may go a little different for $10,041 to win.” Howard held off Seth Bergman in the closing laps to claim the show position with the Washington native next across the line in fourth. Harli White, who scored her first career ASCS Regional win at I-30 Speedway earlier this season, rounded out the top five. Ohio’s Greg Wilson crossed the stripe sixth in his STN return ahead of event rookie Justin Peck of Monrovia, IN. Sam Hafertepe, Jr., three-time STN runner-up including each of the past two years, was eighth with Cody Gardner and Justin Henderson completing the top ten. Heat races were won by Wilson, Hafertepe, Jr., Channin Tankersley, Westbrook, Carney II, Bergman, Sean McClelland and Riley Goodno while White, Jeremy Middleton, Bergman and Peck topped the qualifying races. Scott Bogucki and Tim Crawley won “C” Mains with Kyle Bellm and McClelland victorious in “B” Mains. Dewayne White became the first flip victim of the 2019 STN with a wild ride through turn one in the fourth heat with Cody Hays getting upside down as the next heat went green. Alex Hill got on her side in the First “C” Main with Mike Goodman banging the turn one cushion and taking a ride several laps later. There were no injuries. Defending STN champion was dicing tor the third and final transfer position in the Second “B” Main when he slipped off the top of turn two and did several donuts. Hahn returned to action but ran out of laps to reach a transfer. The 32nd Annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires at I-30 Speedway concludes with Saturday night’s $10,041-to-win tilt that features a full card of heat races, qualifying races, “C” Mains, “B” Mains and 41-lap STN championship “A” Main along with the Mike Pack Building Materials “Dash for Cash” and “Red Shirt Dash” in memory of Lanny Edwards.

  3. Reutzel Runs Season Win Total to 15 – Looks for More in this Weekend’s All Star Triple by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (September 19, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team just keep rolling right along. Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team made it at least one win in each of the five weekends since a top-five finish at the Knoxville Nationals with a $12,554 triumph at Atomic Speedway’s Dean Knittel Memorial finale on Saturday night. The triumph ran Reutzel’s season win total to 15 and pushed his All Star Circuit of Champions points lead to 54 markers with just four nights of series competition remaining. Three of those nights take place this weekend, beginning with Friday night’s Tommy Hinnershitz Memorial at central Pennsylvania’s Williams Grove Speedway before moving on to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday and then Maryland’s Hagerstown Speedway on Sunday. This weekend’s triple wraps up a string of big money weekends in All Star Circuit of Champions competition with as much $30,000 up for grabs including a $20,000 winner’s share in Saturday’s Dirt Classic at Lincoln Speedway. Last weekend’s three-race set at Chillicothe’s Atomic Speedway opened with Reutzel posting finishes of fifth and fourth on Thursday and Friday before climbing to the top rung of the ladder in Saturday’s big-money finale aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine. Reutzel began each of the three nights in identical fashion by establishing the night’s quickest time in qualifying. It ran his number of quick times on the season to an astounding total of 20. “Some of it is our cars and some of it is just the pill draw,” Reutzel said of his penchant for timing in quickest on the night. In the Thursday night feature, Reutzel entered the mix for the lead and then settled for fifth in the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry after contact with the wall. “We were a little off in the feature, but I still thought we had a car to win,” Reutzel explains. “But I smacked the fence and knocked the ladder off so I just hung on for fifth.” On Friday, Reutzel improved a position to finish fourth. “We missed it in the feature, but we were starting up front and I thought I might be able to hold them off with the track conditions,” Reutzel says. “But I hit a rut and bounced off the track and we just rode in fourth the rest of the way.” Reutzel and the BRM No. 87 saved the best of the weekend for last, leading all 30 laps of the feature to pocket the $12,554 winner’s share. “We finally put the whole thing together between the car and the driver,” Reutzel says. “The car was flawless all night.” Reutzel and crew will try to keep that momentum going with this weekend’s set of events in central Pennsylvania and Maryland. 2019 Quick Stats: 73 races, 15 wins, 35 top-fives, 48 top-tens. Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, PA) on Friday, Lincoln Speedway (Abbottstown, PA) on Saturday and Hagerstown (MD) Speedway on Sunday.

  4. Crucial All Star Weekend Looms for Reutzel after Another Win by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (August 22, 2019) – Another All Star Circuit of Champions weekend resulted in another win for Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team. Now, just a few points out of the lead, the reigning series champion takes on a four-race weekend in central Pennsylvania as he tries to recapture the point lead following an unfortunate DNF last Friday night in Michigan. “This is the weekend that won us the championship last year,” the driver of the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car commented. “We went in just a few points behind Paul (McMahan) and had a really good weekend. Now we’re just a few behind Dale (Blaney). Hopefully we can have the same kind of finishes that we had last year.” It’s a weekend that begins at Grandview Speedway on Thursday before moving on to the storied Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, Lincoln Speedway on Saturday and then BAPS Motor Speedway on Sunday. The same swing last year netted a win at Grandview along with a third-place finish at the Grove and then fifth-place runs at Lincoln and BAPS. Reutzel enters the four-race stretch coming off seventh series win of the year last Saturday at Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway. After being taken out by another car under red flag conditions the previous night, Reutzel meant business from the beginning at Plymouth aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine. He set a new track record of 12.233 seconds in qualifying and then earned the pole position for the 30-lap feature with a Dash win before leading all 30 laps for his ninth overall win of the season. It got a little closer than the pilot of the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions machine might have liked though. “I got to the first group of lapped cars and they were all running the same line, so I was able to get through them pretty well,” Reutzel explained. “The second group was racing each other and I slowed my pace down to get through them. I almost slowed down too much and (Brock) Zearfoss nearly got to us.” It could have easily been a weekend sweep after Reutzel was in command at Michigan’s I-96 Speedway the previous night. After setting another quick time, Reutzel led the way until a red flag flew and another car ended his night. “We were out front and I was just trying to burn down some laps and not do anything stupid,” Reutzel says. “They called a red flag over the radio, so I slowed down and just got taken out.” The DNF proved costly in terms of points. Reutzel and the BRM No. 87 team look to regain that ground in central Pennsylvania this weekend. 2019 Quick Stats: 59 races, 9 wins, 26 top-fives, 36 top-tens. Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Grandview Speedway (Bechtelsville, PA) on Thursday, Williams Grove Speedway (Mechanicsburg, PA) on Friday, Lincoln Speedway (Abbottstown, PA) on Saturday and BAPS Motor Speedway (Newberrytown, PA) on Sunday.

  5. Reutzel Back on the All Star Title Hunt after Top Five Knoxville Nationals Finish by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (August 16, 2019) – After another stellar Knoxville Nationals effort, Aaron Reutzel resumes his pursuit of a second consecutive All Star Circuit of Champions title with a pair of events in Michigan and Indiana this weekend. Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team take to Lake Odessa, Michigan’s I-96 Speedway for the first time on Friday night before moving on to Indiana’s Plymouth Speedway on Saturday night. Reutzel was victorious in his first visit to Plymouth Speedway last year. The driver of the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X Sprint Car enters the weekend after posting his second consecutive top-five Knoxville Nationals finish after earning Hard Charger honors with a run through the field to seventh in 2017. After earning a fourth-place finish, this time Reutzel finished out the Nationals with a fifth-place run aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine. Reutzel had earned the pole position for the $150,000-to-win event by virtue of a strong qualifying time on Thursday followed up by a critical eighth-to-second place run in heat race action and then a fifth-place feature finish aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions machine. And Reutzel started the Saturday night feature in strong form. Perhaps too strong. “We were way too good early,” Reutzel says. “I knew we might be in trouble then.” Leading the way until the 14th round, Reutzel still held on to second until the midway break in the 50-lapper. “I knew I was getting loose, so I started searching around and didn’t make very good laps,” Reutzel explained. With a chance to make adjustments, Reutzel and crew gambled on adjustments to better their chances for a victory over the final 25 circuits. “We ended up making too many changes and got the car too tight for the last half of the race,” Reutzel comments. The reigning All Star Circuit of Champions titlist still raced to a fifth-place finish to make for another successful Knoxville Nationals outing for the BRM No. 87 team. “We wanted that win, but it was still another great weekend for our team and something we can continue to build on,” Reutzel concluded. Now, with a slim lead in the All Star title defense, the team looks to build upon that with events in Michigan and Indiana this weekend. 2019 Quick Stats: 57 races, 8 wins, 25 top-fives, 35 top-tens. Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at I-96 Speedway (Lake Odessa, MI) on Friday and Plymouth (IN) Speedway on Saturday.

  6. Bubak Banks Second Consecutive Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals Triumph by Lonnie Wheatley BELLEVILLE, Kan. (August 3, 2019) – Jake Bubak kept his Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals perfection alive by storming to a $7,000 payday in Saturday night’s United Rebel Sprint Series-sanctioned Second Annual Belleville 305 Nationals 30-lap finale atop the ½-mile Belleville High Banks clay oval. Courtesy of Lonnie Wheatley It completed an improbably duplication of last year’s Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals two-night sweep with the Arvada, CO, shoe now four-for-four in event competition aboard the Coyote Candle Company No. 74x Sprint Car. While Bubak didn’t wire the field this time around, he bettered himself in the lapped cars department by leaving just six other cars on the lead lap after lapping all but seven other cars in last year’s inaugural event. This time, Eagle, Nebraska’s Tyler Drueke earned the pole position for the feature with Bubak alongside. But it was fourth-starter Jason Martin gunning into the lead on the initial circuit ahead of Bubak, Jed Werner and Drueke. Martin held off Bubak for a half dozen rounds before Bubak powered by for the point. Martin tried to fight back, but Bubak began to slip away as the laps clicked off. Bubak reached traffic in short order and spent the last two-thirds of the feature event slicing through the field. By the time the checkered flag flew, Bubak held more than a half-lap advantage over Drueke, who made a late move past Martin to snare runner-up honors. Martin settled for the show position behind Bubak and Drueke with Luke Cranston picking off several positions in the closing circuits to snare fourth. J.D. Johnson rounded out the top five with Joe Wood, Jr. and Jed Werner the final cars on the lead lap. Ty Williams was eighth with Shane Sundquist and Buddy Tubbs completing the top ten. The original start to the feature was waved off when Jeremy Huish got into the turn one guardrail and suffered race-ending damage. One lap later, Trey Gropp took a wild ride in turn one that precipitated a red flag. Gropp walked away from the damage, picking up Hard Luck honors. Cranston, Bubak, Drueke, J.D. Johnson and Werner topped heat race action with Drueke, Zach Blurton, Bubak and Williams winning the qualifying races. Before Gropp’s “A” Main tumble, T.J. Cain became the weekend’s first flip victim when he tumbled down the backstretch on the opening lap of the fifth and final heat race. Nebraska’s Shayle Bade and Arkansas’ Tim Crawley, who suffered ignition box woes that sidelined him from heat race action, both earned “B” Main wins. Both “B” Mains featured spirited battles for the fourth and final transfer position with Kyler Johnson battling past Blake Scott in the first “B” Main and then Todd Plemons edging Dalton Stevens in the second “B” Main.

  7. Bubak Shines Again in Belleville 305 Nationals Preliminary by Lonnie Wheatley BELLEVILLE, Kan. (August 2, 2019) – Jake Bubak continues to find the Belleville High Banks to his liking. That was evident with his $2,500 triumph in Friday night’s United Rebel Sprint Series-sanctioned Second Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals preliminary atop the lightning-fast half-mile clay oval aboard the Coyote Candle Company No. 74b entry. Coutesy of Lonnie Wheatley It marked the Arvada, Colorado racer’s fourth consecutive score atop the High Banks including a sweep of last year’s Inaugural edition of the Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals. After earning the pole position for the feature, Bubak had his hands full throughout with Jason Martin pushing him to the limit. In fact, Martin gunned into the lead from the front row outside upon the drop of the green flag and paced the initial four laps before Bubak battled by on the top side. Bubak began to slip away from Martin’s grasp after several laps and encountered traffic on the 12th round just as a caution flew for Craig Dollansky, who slowed just three laps after taking third away from Jed Werner. Martin made a bid for the lead on the restart with the duo side-by-side for nearly a lap before Bubak reestablished command. The same scenario played out again four laps later when a final caution flew for Luke Cranston’s stalled mount. Bubak fought off Martin over the closing circuits with Arkansas’ filling out the podium in third. Werner was fourth with J.D. Johnson rounding out the top five. Ty Williams advanced a half-dozen positions to claim sixth with Tyler Drueke turning in the night’s top passing performance by rallying from 18th to seventh. Joe Wood, Jr., was eighth with Zach Blurton and Brett Becker completing the top ten. Cranston, Bubak, Martin, Werner and Andy Shouse topped heat race action for the 41-car field with Dollansky, Bubak, Williams and Buddy Tubbs victorious in the qualifying races. Todd Plemons and Drueke bested the twin “B” Mains.

  8. Courtney wins USAC “Midwest Midget Championship” finale at Jefferson County Speedway by Lonnie Wheatley FAIRBURY, Neb. (July 13, 2019) – Current NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series points leader Tyler Courtney finished off Jefferson County Speedway’s Riverside Chevrolet Midwest Midget Championship presented by Westin Packaged Meats and Schmidt’s Sanitation by storming to victory lane in Saturday night’s 40-lap feature event atop the 1/5-mile clay oval. Courtney took advantage of a Kevin Thomas, Jr, miscue on a lap five restart to take command after starting from the pole position and led the frantic final 36 laps aboard the Clauson-Marshall Racing No. 7bc NOS Energy Drink Toyota-powered entry. It wasn’t without some late drama though, as Thomas, Jr., had one last shot at stealing the win after a final caution that set up a four-lap dash to the stripe. “I saw someone there racing with me for the win,” Courtney said in victory lane. “I hadn’t been on the bottom of the track since early in the race so I knew I just had to keep hitting my marks up top.” While Courtney started from the pole position, it was front row outside starter Thomas, Jr., jumping into the initial lead as Courtney fell back to fourth behind Jerry Coons, Jr., and Tanner Thorson on the opening lap. Courtney rebounded quickly though by getting back up to second by the time the first of three cautions flew after four laps for 2016 Fairbury winner Chad Boat. And when Thomas, Jr., stumbled on the turn two cushion on the restart, Courtney took quick advantage and raced into a lead that he wouldn’t relinquish aside from a few backstretch feet on the 38th lap. A 22-lap green flag stretch had the leaders dicing through traffic much of the way until Brady Bacon came to a stop outside of turn two with 26 laps in the books. And, by that time, Courtney had three lapped cars separating himself from Thomas, Jr., and reigning series champion Logan Seavey. Courtney raced away on open track as Thomas, Jr., and Seavey lost ground working lapped traffic. The advantage was negated when Ethan Mitchell spun to a stop in turn three with just four laps to go. Thomas, Jr., challenged on the final restart, edging ahead briefly exiting turn two on the 38th lap. Courtney continued to rail the topside and made it work for his sixth series win of the year. “We brought our game tonight,” Courtney explained. “We have to capitalize on nights like this when we start up front.” Thomas, Jr., settled for second in the Petry Motorsports No. 5 entry. “Other than my mistake early in the race, I felt like we had equal cars,” Thomas, Jr., commented. “I tried to sneak by and it worked until I got in the grease and pushed up.” Seavey settled for the show position in the Keith Kunz Motorsports Mobil 1 No. 67 Toyota-powered machine. “Those last ten laps were a lot of fun, this track is always fun to race at,” Seavey said Coons, Jr., crossed the stripe fourth while Tyler Thomas earned Hard Charger honors by rounding out the top five after starting 11th. Friday night winner Jason McDougal was sixth with Tanner Carrick, Tanner Thorson, Chris Windom and Tucker Klaasmeyer completing the top ten. Seavey set quick time in qualifying for the second night in a row, stopping the clocks this time at 11.412 seconds before racing to a heat race win as well along with T. Thomas and Zeb Wise.

  9. McDougal Masters USAC Midwest Midget Championship Night One at Jefferson County by Lonnie Wheatley FAIRBURY, Neb. (July 12, 2019) – The opening night of Jefferson County Speedway’s Riverside Chevrolet Midwest Midget Championship presented by Westin Packaged Meats and Schmidt’s Sanitation offered up a first-time NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget series feature winner with Jason McDougal topping Friday night’s 30-lap feature atop the 1/5-mile clay oval. Courtesy of USAC McDougal assumed the point when early leader Tanner Thorson ran afoul of lapped traffic on the 19th circuit and then kept the Clauson-Marshall Racing duo of Tyler Courtney and Chris Windom at bay over the final dozen circuits to secure the $3,000 triumph aboard the FMR No. 76m entry. “This is amazing, it’s such a great feeling to finally get one for this team,” the Broken Arrow, OK native commented in victory lane. “Tanner (Thorson) was gone by a straightaway or so, but Bob (East) always gets this thing pretty tight at the beginning so we’re always fast for the last five laps.” While McDougal gridded the feature field outside the second row, 2017 Fairbury USAC Midget winner Tanner Thorson led the feature field to the green flag with California’s Robert Dalby alongside. Thorson gunned into the early lead with McDougal making a move past Dalby soon after a lap five caution for Tyler Thomas’ turn four spin into an infield tire. McDougal tried to chase down Thorson’s Keith Kunz Motorsports No. 98 entry, but the Nevada native held off the young Oklahoma racer until spinning to a stop on the frontstretch on the 19th lap after contact with a lapped car. McDougal slipped through the skirmish unharmed with third-runner Kevin Thomas, Jr., and fourth-place contender Tucker Klaasmeyer collected in the scrum as well. Thomas, Jr., left on the hook, Thorson returned after a quick trip to the work area and Klaasmeyer returned as well only to flip down the backstretch one lap later. Set for an 11-lap dash to the checkered flag, McDougal had the NOS Energy Drink CMR duo of Windom and 12th-starting Courtney breathing down his neck the rest of the way. McDougal opened up a slight advantage until Courtney finally battled past Windom for second on the high side. Courtney and Windom closed in over the final handful of rounds with Courtney falling just two car-lengths short at the stripe as Windom settled for the show position. “I think one more lap and we would have had him, but it’s only 30 laps,” Courtney said of the close finish. Windom explained that, “It was a crazy race that first half, then it widened out some at the end. Jason was a little better than us on the bottom, then I saw Tyler come by the outside of me and I moved up and we both ran him down. I wish we would have moved up a little sooner, I think we could have got to Jason. It’s good to be on the podium again, but we’re looking for wins.” Chad Boat, a 2016 winner at Fairbury, advanced from ninth to fourth with fellow Arizona shoe and tenth-starter Jerry Coons, Jr., rounding out the top five. Tyler Thomas rebounded from the early incident to claim sixth with current series points leader Logan Seavey, Andrew Layser, Zeb Wise and Dalby completing the top ten. After Seavey set a new track record of 10.685 seconds in qualifying, Tanner Carrick, Klaasmeyer and Boat each scored heat race wins. The Riverside Chevrolet Midwest Midget Championship presented by Westin Packaged Meats and Schmidt’s Sanitation wraps up with Saturday night’s card that gets under way with qualifying at 6:30 p.m. and racing at 7:00 p.m. The JayHusker Non-Wing Micro Sprints round out Saturday’s tilt.

  10. Reutzel Runs Win Total to Seven – New York Triple on Deck this Weekend by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (July 12, 2019) – Another weekend of All Star Circuit of Champions competition netted another win for reigning series champion Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team. Reutzel is looking for more this weekend with a set of events in New York beginning at Utica-Rome Speedway on Friday that is in neither Utica nor Rome but in Vernon. From there, action shifts to Middletown’s Orange County Speedway on Saturday and then West Lebanon’s Lebanon Valley Speedway on Sunday. “It’s really the start of another Speedweek for us,” Reutzel says. “We do these three nights, then we get one night off before five straight nights with the World of Outlaws in Ohio.” Reutzel rides into New York with momentum on the side of the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team after a triumph at Lernerville Speedway last Friday and then a fifth-place finish at Sharon Speedway on Saturday. And Reutzel will be the first to admit that the Sharon finish could have been a better one. “I set fast time by three-tenths of a second,” Reutzel said of his qualifying run. “I guess I was thinking about something on the car, and I just drove right past the scales and back to the pits. I haven’t done that since the Micro Sprint days.” With his time disallowed, Reutzel rallied from last in his heat race to third to secure the 13th starting position for the feature. Running around tenth midway through the feature, Reutzel got on the move and made his way up to fifth in the closing laps aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine. “(Dale) Blaney was on his own level, but I think we had a second-place car,” Reutzel recalls. “It was a good rebound for us after getting off to a bad start.” After setting quick time the previous night at Lernerville, Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team dealt with some adversity to achieve their seventh win of the year. “The motor had a stumble and it wouldn’t clear out, and we couldn’t figure out exactly what the issue was,” Reutzel explains. “So, after the Dash, we changed everything motor and fuel related.” The hard work in the pit area paid off, with Reutzel needing just eight laps to race into the lead from seventh en route to another win. “I was able to run right through the middle of the track and went straight to the lead,” Reutzel says of his fifth series win of the year. Reutzel looks to chalk up more wins this weekend in the Empire State. 2019 Quick Stats: 39 races, 7 wins, 16 top-fives, 24 top-tens. Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Utica-Rome Speedway on Friday, Orange County Fair Speedway on Saturday and Lebanon Valley Speedway on Sunday. For those unable to attend, all three nights will be available live via PPV at www.speedshifttv.com.

  11. Seavey Strikes for “Tuesday Night Thunder” Glory at Red Dirt Raceway! by Lonnie Wheatley MEEKER, Okla. (July 9, 2019) – In a NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget feature event that offered up more twists and turns than the country highways and byways leading to Red Dirt Raceway, Sutter, California’s Logan Seavey emerged to take “Tuesday Night Thunder” honors atop the ¼-mile red clay oval. With three and four-wide battles the norm throughout the 30-lapper, the reigning series champion railed the topside of the track to take the lead away from Jerry Coons, Jr., on the 24th round and led the final seven circuits to pocket the $3,000 winner’s share aboard the Keith Kunz Motorsports Mobil 1 No. 67. Posting his second series win of the year, Seavey was chased to the stripe by Clauson-Marshall Racing rep Zeb Wise with fellow CMR shoe Chris Windom edging Coons, Jr., for the final podium position. “Once the race came to me, I was patient and when a couple of them crashed out it cleaned up the field and I was able to make the moves I really wanted to make,” Seavey explained in victory lane. “I was trying to not get crashed, everyone was running so hard. That’s what makes these races so exciting.” While Seavey gridded the feature field ninth after clinging to the final transfer from “B” Main action after a late run-in with teammate Tucker Klaasmeyer, current series points leader Tyler Courtney and Broken Arrow native Jason McDougal led the way to the green flag. After the initial start was waved off for a turn four fracas, McDougal gunned into the early lead aboard the FMR No. 76m and paced the initial eight circuits before Courtney pounced on the lead on a lap nine restart with the red flag flying moments later when Holley Hollan exited the venue with a flyer over the turn three wall. Hollan escaped injury. McDougal battled back in front for a lap on the restart, only to have Courtney recapture the lead with chaos soon ensuing in his wake when Tanner Carrick slid McDougal for second getting into turn one on the 16th lap. With the aspiring flamingo breeder slowed from the contact, top-five contender Kevin Thomas, Jr., made contact and flipped with fellow front runner Tanner Thorson also involved as Tyler Thomas got upside down as well in the melee. McDougal and Thomas, Jr., were done for the night while the others were able to rejoin. Courtney took off on the restart ahead of Carrick, Windom and Wise with Seavey up to sixth, but “Sunshine” surrendered the lead soon after when his NOS Energy Drink No. 7bc slowed on the backstretch with mechanical woes on the 18th round. Windom assumed the point and traded the lead with Carrick before Coons, Jr., catfished the low line and surged in front in a three-wide battle for the lead. A final caution flew with seven laps remaining when Carrick slowed with a flattened left rear after contact from a Windom slider. Up to second by avoiding all the chaos, Seavey made the top of the track work to his advantage and raced past Coons, Jr., on the restart and led the rest of the way to the checkered flag with Angola, Indiana’s Wise racing into second place. “It’s a dream come true to be racing right now, I just can’t thank Keith (Kunz) and Pete (Willoughby) enough for believing in me,” Seavey summed up. “We’re just having a dream year.” After starting seventh, runner-up Wise commented that, “I knew starting seventh that I had to do what I do to get to the front and we were able to edge them out for second.” Rounding out the podium in third, Windom said that, “There was a lot going on there. We got to the lead and the 71k was short sliding guys all night, so I finally took care of that. I didn’t mean to actually hit him, but if he’s not gonna lift then I’m not gonna let him have the position and it bumped us back to about sixth. There was a lot of haymaker slidejobs, this has got to be awesome to watch for the fans.” Racing from the 15th starting position, Coons, Jr., crossed the stripe fourth with Broken Arrow’s Jonathan Beason earning Hard Charger honors by racing from 17th to round out the top five aboard the Hard Eight Racing No. 8J. Owasso’s Matt Sherrell raced from 16th to sixth with 13th-starter Chard Boat in seventh as none of the top seven finishers started better than seventh. Tanner Thorson salvaged an eighth-place finish after being collected in a mid-race incident with Tucker Klaasmeyer and Tyler Thomas completing the top ten. After Zeb Wise established a new track record of 13.207 seconds in qualifying, Beason, Hollan, Chad Boat and Thomas topped heat race action for the 36-car field with Wise winning the “B” Main. While Hollan sailed out of the park in “A” Main action, Karsyn Elledge beat her to the punch by doing the same in the mid stages of the “B” Main while holding down the sixth and final transfer positions. Elledge walked away as well.

  13. Reutzel Racks Up another All Star Win – Continues Title Defense with Pair of Events this Weekend Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (July 5, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel racked up perhaps one of his more impressive wins in All Star Circuit of Champions competition at Joliet’s Dirt Track at Route 66 last Saturday. Then he stormed eastward and picked off a pair of top-five finishes in Pennsylvania Speedweek competition. Now, Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team resume their All Star Circuit of Champions with a pair of events along the Western Pennsylvania / Eastern Ohio border this weekend at Sarver’s Lernerville Speedway on Friday night and then Hartford’s Sharon Speedway on Saturday night. Reutzel raced to victory lane at both venues during last year’s championship campaign aboard the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X entry. “We had good runs at both tracks last year, so hopefully that means we can have another good weekend,” Reutzel commented. After the first of last weekend’s pair of All Star events fell victim to rain at Illinois’s Jacksonville Speedway, Reutzel romped to victory lane at Joliet the next night for the second year in a row aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine. And he did it the hard way after a Dash tumble that had the team prepared to break out the backup car and start at the tail. “I got in on the cushion and half spun, and when you’re going that fast the half spin turns into a flip,” Reutzel explains. “When I got back to the trailer, our guys were already rolling out the backup and it was ready to go.” Further examination made the team reconsider their options. “When the car got back, we looked it over and it was mostly just bolt on stuff so we decided to fix it and at least hang on to the eighth starting position,” Reutzel says. “It turned out to be a really good decision.” Reutzel wasted little time rallying through the field and stormed on to an easy All Star victory for the fifth time this season and sixth overall of 2019 in the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions machine. “I got up to third and was closing in on Paul (McMahan) and I kept seeing Kyle (Larson) more and more before we had a red,” Reutzel said before a mid-race red flag occurred. Reutzel raced into the lead in short order when action resumed and was well in command the rest of the way. “We have had a good car there the last two years, that place has been good for us,” Reutzel said of the Joliet clay oval. Reutzel then took in his first of three legs of Pennsylvania Speedweek competition on Monday night at Lincoln Speedway and promptly turned in the night’s quickest time. A bad redraw for the feature made for a challenge, with Reutzel ultimately finishing out the night in fifth. “We drew the seven for the feature and then there was always people racing for position right ahead of us so it made it hard to get anywhere,” Reutzel recalls. “We finally had a couple of cautions late and I was able to get up to fourth. I tried to make a move after the last caution to move up but it cost us a spot and we ended up fifth.” Moving on to Grandview Speedway on Tuesday night, it was more of the same with early speed netting a heat race win and a similar feature redraw netting another fifth place finish. “It was about exactly the same as Lincoln,” Reutzel says. “We were good at times of the race; at one point we were there with the lead group. It was just hard to get going anywhere though consistently.” Reutzel finished out his portion of Pennsylvania Speedweek at Port Royal Speedway on Wednesday and ended the night early with a cut tire. “We missed it some in qualifying and then had a good heat race,” Reutzel says. “We were racing for position in the feature and got into it with someone and cut the right rear tire, so that was the end of our night.” Back on the All Star trail this weekend, Reutzel looks to open his points lead as he chases a second consecutive series title. 2019 Quick Stats: 37 races, 6 wins, 14 top-fives, 22 top-tens. Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions Lernerville Speedway (Sarver, PA) on Friday and Sharon Speedway (Hartford, OH) on Saturday. For those unable to attend, all three nights will be available live via PPV at www.speedshifttv.com.

  15. All Star Double this Weekend for Reutzel after Setting a New Track Record by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (May 3, 2019) – Following another weekend washout, Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team try to get the All Star Circuit of Champions title chase back under way with a pair of events this weekend. The weekend double gets under way in Western Pennsylvania at Lernerville Speedway on Friday night before shifting just across the border to Hartford, Ohio’s Sharon Speedway on Saturday night. Reutzel visited both tracks for the first time during last year’s championship campaign and reached victory lane in both first visits. “We won at Lernerville and we also won at Sharon the first time and were horrible the next two times we went there,” Reutzel recalls. “We just have to get back to what we did the first time at Sharon and we can have a good weekend.” While last weekend’s pair of All Star events in Ohio fell victim to weather, Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team got in part of Sunday’s World of Outlaws event at Illinois’ Jacksonville Speedway before Mother Nature stepped in once again. And they made the most of the short night with Reutzel setting a new track record of 10.028 seconds in qualifying over a field of 42 before winning his heat race as well aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine. After making a last-lap move past Donny Schatz to snare fourth in the Dash, Reutzel was poised to grid the feature outside the second row aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions machine before rain brought an early end to the night. A makeup date for the feature event has not yet been announced. “We made the right adjustments for qualifying after hot laps, we knew we had to run the curb hard,” Reutzel explains. “It was slick by the time we ran the Dash, so we tightened up. I was pumped for the ‘A’, I wish we would have had a chance to get that in.” With rain the common denominator over the past several weekends, Reutzel and the BRM No. 87 look to get the All Star Circuit of Champions title pursuit into high gear with this weekend’s pair of events. 2019 Quick Stats: 20 races, 1 win, 6 top-fives, 11 top-tens. Next Up: All Star Circuit of Champions at Lernerville (PA) Speedway on Friday and Sharon Speedway (Hartford, OH) on Saturday.

  16. Reutzel Resumes All Star Title Chase after Rallying to Knoxville Runner-Up Finish by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (April 25, 2019) – After a dazzling run through the field to capture a second-place finish in Saturday night’s Knoxville Raceway season opener, Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team get back to the business of defending the All Star Circuit of Champions title with a pair of events in Ohio this weekend. The weekend double begins at Attica Raceway Park on Friday night before shifting to Orrville’s Wayne County Speedway on Saturday night. Reutzel will round out the weekend by taking in Sunday’s World of Outlaws card at Illinois’ Jacksonville Speedway on Sunday night aboard teammate Josh Baughman’s No. 17 Sprint Car. After last weekend’s All Star double fell victim to rain, Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team took advantage of an opportunity to take in Knoxville Raceway’s season-opening event in Knoxville, IA. And the team made the most of it, rallying through the feature field from the 12th starting position to capture runner-up honors in the 20-lapper aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine. “We were really good,” Reutzel summed up of the night. “It was good to get some laps in at Knoxville, we’re really looking forward to the Nationals now.” Reutzel started the night by timing in ninth among the field of 33. “We tried out something that we had been wanting to try, and it was no good,” Reutzel explains. Reutzel then made his way to the feature with a fifth-place heat race finish. “We weren’t too bad, I just got off to a bad start. Then it jumped out of gear, but that rebunched the field and gave us a chance to get going.” Gridding the feature field outside the sixth row, Reutzel wasted little time slicing through the field aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry. He made it all the way to second but ran out of laps to run down eventual race winner Brian Brown. “We tried something else that we were wanting to try out, we really forced ourselves to test,” Reutzel explains. “And it as really good. I got to (Kerry) Madsen and made some mistakes trying to get by him. Then I got to (Justin) Henderson and made some mistakes trying to get by him too. Those mistakes cost us several laps, otherwise I think we could have got up there and raced for the win.” With his sixth top-five of the season and fifth in a row in the books including a World of Outlaws score in California, Reutzel looks to add some notches to the win column in Ohio and Illinois this weekend. Reutzel posted three top-tens in All Star Circuit of Champions competition at Attica Raceway Park and two top-tens at Wayne County Speedway last year. Reutzel also posted a fifth-place World of Outlaws finish at Jacksonville Speedway in 2016. 2019 Quick Stats: 20 races, 1 win, 6 top-fives, 11 top-tens. Next Up: Friday - All Star Circuit of Champions at Attica (OH) Raceway Park. Saturday – All Star Circuit of Champions at Wayne County Speedway (Orrville, OH). Sunday – World of Outlaws at Jacksonville (IL) Speedway. For those unable to attend, the Friday and Saturday All Star events are available via PPP at www.speedshifttv.com while Sunday’s World of Outlaws card is available PPV at www.dirtvision.com.

  17. Reutzel Reroutes to Knoxville this Weekend after Opening All Star Campaign with Pair of Top-Fives by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (April 19, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team opened up their All Star Circuit of Champions title defense in strong form by posting a pair of top-fives in last weekend’s events. Originally on the way to Attica Raceway Park for another pair of All Star events, inclement Ohio weather has redirected the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team back to Iowa for Saturday night’s season-opening card at Knoxville Raceway. “It’s always good to be able to get in an extra night or two at Knoxville before the Nationals just to see where we’re at with the car and what we need to do to be ready in August,” Reutzel explains. Last weekend’s originally-slated four-race set got under way at Virginia Motor Speedway with Reutzel timing in second-quickest and needing nothing more than a top-five heat race finish to lock into a Dash. However, engine problems late in the heat race raised the degree of difficulty for the night. Reutzel and the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment crew responded though, making repairs and then charging from the 22nd starting position in the feature event to post a top-five finish. And Reutzel felt it could have been better if not for a late skirmish with a lapped car. “We were really fast and we came right through the field,” Reutzel recalls. “I think we could have been right there in the mix for the win if that lapped car wouldn’t have pulled that stunt.” Even after the contact, Reutzel recovered and regained a pair of lost positions to open his All Star title defense with a fifth-place finish. After Friday’s round at Williams Grove Speedway in central Pennsylvania fell victim to rain, action continued on Saturday night at Port Royal Speedway with Reutzel driving the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry to another strong finish in fourth. “We missed it a little bit in qualifying, but it worked out and put on the front row of our heat race,” Reutzel explains. Reutzel made the most of it, winning his heat race and then scoring a third-place Dash finish to secure the fifth starting position for the 30-lap main event. Reutzel stayed among the lead pack throughout before ultimately taking the checkered flag in fourth. “We couldn’t quite get off the corners that we needed to in the feature,” Reutzel says. “That really kept us from being able to contend more for the win, but at least we were able to get away with a good finish.” Following another rainout on Sunday at Bedford Speedway, Reutzel and company left the opening weekend of All Star Circuit of Champions points action a close second in points. Now the team looks to get dialed in at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night. 2019 Quick Stats: 19 races, 1 win, 5 top-fives, 10 top-tens. Next Up: Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night. Those unable to attend in person can call all the action live via PPV at www.dirtvision.com.

  18. Reutzel Guns for Air Capital Shootout Loot after Dominant World of Outlaws Triumph at Perris by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (April 5, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports Sprint Car team are Kansas-bound for this weekend’s $14,000-to-win “Park City Cup/Air Capital Shootout” at Wichita’s 81 Speedway. The event atop the 3/8-mile clay oval takes place on Friday and Saturday. Reutzel will be wheeling teammate Josh Baughman’s No. 17 entry during the event rather than the familiar No. 87 machine. Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team enter the weekend after perhaps the most dominant performance of Reutzel’s Sprint Car racing career at California’s Perris Auto Speedway last Saturday, where the reigning All Star Circuit of Champions titlist dominated every portion of the night en route to his second career World of Outlaws victory. And it was pure dominance. Reutzel set the tone early, turning in the quickest time in hot laps aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry. He then proceeded to set quick time in qualifying, win his heat race and the Dash before leading all 30 laps of the feature. And it was all the result of one change for the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team. “It was a last-minute decision,” Reutzel recalls. “We had done our regular maintenance, and then we decided to pully down one of ours from last year and see if that would make a difference.” It made a difference indeed. “It was night and day,” Reutzel says. The impressive Perris Auto Speedway triumph came after a solid 11th-place run at Hanford, California’s Keller Auto Speedway the previous night from the 23rd starting position. “I got up to about 12th or so passing everyone on the bottom, then I felt like I needed to get to the top,” Reutzel says. “I lost a couple of spots up there before I got back to the bottom and got some back. I should have just stayed down there the whole time.” The decision to compete at this weekend’s NCRA Sprint Car “Air Capital Shootout” comes after scrapping original plans of an Arizona weekend of World of Outlaws competition before kicking off his All Star Circuit of Champions title defense next weekend. “We went straight back to the shop in Knoxville after the Perris race, we need to try to figure out our car a little better before the All Star races get going next weekend,” Reutzel explains. “That’s a good payday at 81 Speedway this weekend and we’ve had success there before, so we’re hoping to have a shot at it this weekend.” Reutzel raced to victory lane in his first visit to 81 Speedway in 2014 and then posted an eighth-place finish in World of Outlaws competition at the Kansas oval in 2017. He looks to add another win or two to the 2019 ledger this weekend. 2019 Quick Stats: 16 races, 1 win, 2 top-fives, 7 top-tens.

  20. Reutzel finishes out World of Outlaws California swing after best finish of the year by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (March 28, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team are set to finish out this month’s NOS Energy Drinks California swings with a pair of events this weekend after last weekend’s double fell early to rain. This week’s action for the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team takes place at Hanford’s Keller Auto Speedway at Kings Fairgrounds on Friday night and then the Perris Auto Speedway on Saturday night. While it will be the reigning All Star Circuit of Champions titlist first visit to Perris on Saturday, it will be his second visit to the Kings Fairgrounds after posting a 17th place finish with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour eight years ago in February of 2011. Reutzel enters the weekend after another pair of strong runs with the World of Outlaws at Chico’s Silver Dollar Speedway and then the Stockton Dirt Track on March 15-16. After early Chico struggles, Reutzel salvaged a solid 11th-place finish that netted Hard Charger honors and the rallied from 12th to capture fourth atop a rough Stockton surface the following night aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry. His first visit to Silver Dollar Speedway got off to an inauspicious start before rallying through the “B” Main to earn the 24th starting position for the feature. “We struggled until the end of the night,” Reutzel comments. “We were so tight early that I couldn’t hardly stay on the racetrack.” The Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions crew made improvements as the night progressed though. “We finally got freed up enough by the ‘B’ Feature and went from tenth to get the final transfer,” Reutzel recalls. From there, Reutzel sliced through the feature field, cracking the top ten at one point before ultimately settling for 11th at the stripe and Hard Charger honors. “We got up to ninth, then I hit a hole really bad and bottomed out the right front and broke the shaft off of the shock,” Reutzel explains. Moving on to Stockton on Saturday the 16th, a qualifying effort of 16th was followed up by a third-place heat race run that found the team gridded 12th in the feature event. “We were too tight again in qualifying, so we had some work to do again,” Reutzel recalls. Starting 12th, an opening lap mishap put Reutzel back to 20th. Reutzel was on the wheel from there, ripping through the field all the way to fourth by race’s end on a rough surface with the top three within reach at the line. “We got freed up for the ‘A” and the car was really good,” Reutzel says. “On the first lap, everyone checked up and I swerved to miss and slid off the track. That put us way back, but we came back up through the field. It was rough, but I was able to drive right through the holes. It was a blast to race on.” With his first top-five of the season in the books, Reutzel will look to add more and perhaps a first win of the season in this weekend’s events at Hanford and Perris. 2019 Quick Stats: 14 races, 1 top-five, 6 top-tens. Next Up: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Hanford, California’s Keller Auto Speedway at Kings Fairgrounds on Friday and then Perris (CA) Auto Speedway on Saturday.

  21. Reutzel Races to World of Outlaws Top Ten at Tulare – Chico and Stockton on Tap for this Weekend by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (March 14, 2019) – After the opening night of last weekend’s NOS Energy Drink World of Outlaws Sprint Car double at Tulare, California’s Thunderbowl Raceway fell victim to rain, Aaron Reutzel put together another strong outing by racing to a top-ten finish atop the 1/3-mile clay oval on Saturday night. Reutzel had to work for it, rallying from the 14th starting position to post a ninth-place finish aboard the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car. The California adventures continue for the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team with World of Outlaws events at Chico’s Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night and then the Stockton Dirt Track on Saturday night. While Reutzel took in last year’s World of Outlaws event at Stockton, Friday’s card will mark his first visit to Silver Dollar Speedway. “I haven’t been there, but I’ve watched a lot of video and it looks like it should be right up our alley,” Reutzel said of Silver Dollar Speedway. Reutzel carries confidence into Stockton as well. “There was a lot of rain leading into it last year, so it was kind of rough,” Reutzel recalls. “We were going good though until a left rear shock broke.” Last Saturday’s event at Thunderbowl Raceway found Reutzel timing in tenth-quick aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry before posting a fourth-place finish in heat race action to secure the 14th starting position for the feature. From there, Reutzel began making his way forward in the closing rounds aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions entry, nipping Donny Schatz at the line for the ninth-place finish on the night. “We’ve been just a little too tight all year, we’re making gains on it though and I think we’re about where we need to be,” Reutzel explained. “We maintained most of the way at Tulare, then when the fuel burned off enough I was finally able to move in and out the way I needed to. We really got going with about ten to go, we just have to get dialed in a little better to get going sooner.” Ten nights into the Sprint Car season aboard the BRM No. 87, Reutzel and crew look to build upon their progress this weekend. “We started with two different kind of racetracks in Florida that don’t really apply to anywhere else you go,” Reutzel says. “We’re building our notes and we keep making gains, we’re getting close.” The team will reach the midway portion of this month’s World of Outlaws California swing with this weekend’s pair of events at Chico and Stockton. 2019 Quick Stats: 12 races, 5 top-tens. Next Up: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Chico, California’s Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday night and the Stockton (CA) Dirt Track on Saturday night.

  22. Reutzel Ready to Roll the Dice with a World of Outlaws Double in Vegas by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (February 27, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team are ready to get back to action with the NOS Energy Drinks World of Outlaws Sprint Car series with a pair of events at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas. Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team take to the dirt track in Nevada on both Wednesday and Thursday before rolling on westward to take in the California portion of the World of Outlaws tour over the month of March. “We’re looking forward to it, these are a bunch of fun tracks to race at beginning with Las Vegas,” the driver of the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment entry commented. The Dirt Track at Las Vegas is where it all started for the BRM No. 87 in 2018, as the team debuted at last year’s event following a weekend washout in Texas that was repeated last weekend. Last year’s debut was a good one, with the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team leaving Las Vegas with a top-five finish. “It got us off on the right foot and really set the tone for the season,” Reutzel said of the season that ultimately led to the All Star Circuit of Champions title. This time around, Reutzel and crew already have some laps in with several nights of Florida competition including the opening two nights of World of Outlaws action that have the Clute, TX, native sitting seventh in series points. “We had a decent enough start in Florida,” Reutzel says. “We got things to where they needed to be by the last night, now we just need to take that out west and keep improving upon it.” It begins Wednesday night at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas. 2019 Quick Stats: 9 races, 4 top-tens. Next Up: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas (NV) on Wednesday and Thursday (February 27 and 28).

  23. Reutzel Finishes Out Florida in Strong Form at DIRTcar Nationals by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (February 13, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team finished out their Florida in February events on a positive note with a solid performance at last week’s DIRTcar Nationals at Barberville’s Volusia Speedway Park. Reutzel finished out the week ranked seventh in both the final DIRTcar Nationals points as well as the early NOS Energy Drinks World of Outlaws Sprint Car points. After opening the week with runs of ninth and 12th in All Star Circuit of Champions competition on Wednesday and Thursday, Reutzel and the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X team finished out the week with showings of 11th and seventh in the opening World of Outlaws events of the year before Sunday night’s finale was rained out. “All in all, it wasn’t too bad for us,” Reutzel commented. “Our starting point wasn’t quite as good as needed it to be. But by the end of the last night, I felt like we were back to where we were last year. I really wish we could have got the Sunday night show in.” The reigning All Star Circuit of Champions kingpin began the week timing in 19th quick in Wednesday’s All Star card and then winning his heat race to land a Dash starting position. After starting the feature in tenth, Reutzel drove the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine to a ninth place finish. Thursday’s final All Star card of the Florida portion of the season netted Reutzel and the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions team Hard Charger honors for the night after rallying from 24th to capture a 12thplace finish. “We had a hard time qualifying the first couple of nights or so, it made us work that much more to get good finishes,” Reutzel says. The qualifying woes continued as the World of Outlaws kicked off the season on Friday night, but Reutzel rallied from seventh to third in his heat race to salvage the 12th starting position for the feature event and then finished out the night in eleventh. Getting things dialed in what proved to be the final night of the DIRTcar Nationals, Reutzel timed in ninth-quick to lead the way to a seventh-place finish on the night. “We got to where we needed to be, now we’re looking forward to the Texas races next weekend,” Reutzel concluded. Reutzel and the BRM No. 87 team will be back in action with the NOS Energy Drinks World of Outlaws Sprint Car series next weekend at Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, TX, on Friday night, February 22, and then Kilgore’s Lonestar Speedway on Saturday, February 23. 2019 Quick Stats: 9 races, 4 top-tens. Next Up: World of Outlaws Sprint Cars at Cotton Bowl Speedway (Paige, TX) on February 22 and Lonestar Speedway (Kilgore, TX) on February 23.

  24. Reutzel Ready for DIRTcar Nationals after Pair of Ocala Top Tens by Lonnie Wheatley CLUTE, Texas (February 6, 2019) – Aaron Reutzel and the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports No. 87 Sprint Car team are set for five consecutive nights of racing action at Volusia Speedway Park’s DIRTcar Winter Nationals this week after posting a pair of top ten finishes in last weekend’s opening set of All Star Circuit of Champions events at Ocala, Florida’s Bubba Raceway Park. The reigning All Star Circuit of Champions titlist will take to Barberville, Florida’s Volusia Speedway Park on Wednesday and Thursday for a pair of All Star events and then the opening three rounds of the 2019 World of Outlaws Sprint Car series on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Reutzel enters the high-octane week of competition after driving the Folkens Brothers Trucking/Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution Triple-X entry to a pair of top-tens at Bubba Raceway Park last Thursday and Friday before passing on Saturday’s finale. The Clute, TX, native opened his Sprint Car season with a tenth-place finish in Thursday night’s All Star lidlifter before posting an eighth-place finish on Friday. Reutzel opened things up by timing in fourth quickest overall on Thursday aboard the Precision Catalyst/Hollywood Blasting & Coating/Beard Equipment machine, which put him in the second row of heat race action. “We qualified well, but we were in that invert,” Reutzel recalls. While a third-place heat race run secured a feature starting position, it was short of the Dash and had him starting on the sixth row outside in the 30-lap “A” Main. After an opening lap mishap that cost him several positions, Reutzel rallied back through the field to post a tenth-place finish aboard the Nattress Construction/Momentum Racing Suspensions machine. “We got over the curb on the opening lap and fell back to about 17th,” Reutzel says. “The car was okay, it was enough that I was able to drive back up through there to get back to tenth. We still weren’t quite where we needed to be though.” A qualifying effort of twelfth-quickest overall on Saturday netted a front row starting position that translated into a dominant heat race win to secure a Dash position. “We qualified bad enough to be on the front row, won the heat race and then draw the last starting position for the Dash,” Reutzel recalls. After a fifth-place run in the Dash, Reutzel gridded the feature in the ninth starting position and raced on to an eighth-place finish on a fast yet narrow track. “We started ninth, ran it wide open for 30 laps and finished up in eighth,” Reutzel said of the night. With afternoon showers on Saturday putting the night’s event in question, Reutzel and crew made the early decision to forego the Ocala finale. “We really thought it would rain out,” Reutzel says. “We just felt it was better to take an extra day to get everything ready for Volusia.” It will be Reutzel’s second dose of DIRTcar Nationals competition after taking in the 2017 edition of the event. “We struggled with motor issues the entire time the last time here, so we didn’t really get a chance to race,” Reutzel recalls. “We should be in good shape now and I think this should be our kind of place. We just need to qualify well and go from there, I’m looking forward to this week.” The chase for that Big Gator gets under way on Wednesday night. 2019 Quick Stats: 5 races, 2 top-tens. Next Up: DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville, FL, on Wednesday through Sunday (All Star Circuit of Champions on Wednesday and Thursday, World of Outlaws on Friday, Saturday and Sunday).

  25. Weiss a Winner of $14K in Wild West Shootout Finale – Sheppard Crowned Champion by Lonnie Wheatley SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (January 13, 2019) – The conclusion of the 13th Annual Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts atop the 1/3-mile FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway played out in the most unpredictable of fashions with Manitoba’s Ricky Weiss cashing for a $14,000 payday in Sunday night’s Shaw Trucking 50-lap Super Late Model finale. Perhaps with a lucky horseshoe aboard the No. 7 entry, Weiss assumed the point for a green-white-checkered restart after Scott Bloomquist crashed into a stopped car less than a half-lap away from the checkered flag. Earlier in the race, Bloomquist had taken command when Bobby Pierce surrendered the point with rear end failure. “I hate to see that,” Weiss said of Bloomquist’s last lap misfortune. “He was checked out, he was gone.” While Weiss topped the Late Model finale, Ricky Thornton, Jr., bested the Modifieds and Cole Searing added his fourth win of the six-race miniseries in X Modified competition with Darrell Nelson topping the makeup Modified main event from the previous night. Brandon Sheppard earned the Wild West Shootout championship in the Modified ranks with Nelson capturing Modified title honors and Searing scoring X Modified championship honors for the second year in a row. In the 50-lap Black Diamond Super Late Models presented by M&W Transport feature event, Bobby Pierce once again battled into the lead on the opening round and was gunning to bump Keyser Quarter Million Challenge bonus from $10,000 to $25,000 with a fourth win of the week. And for much of the race, it appeared that the Illinois racer would do just that. But for the second night in a row, Pierce slowed near the midway point to bring out a caution. This time, it came after 27 laps with race-ending rear end woes that handed the lead off to Bloomquist. Closing in on his first career Wild West Shootout win, Bloomquist held nearly a half straightaway lead as he took the white flag only to have disaster strike when he tagged the car of R.C. Whitwell that was backed into the turn three wall. Weiss, who had worked his way towards the front from 11th, found himself out front on the restart and raced on to his second victory of the week. “Our speed is because of them,” Weiss said of the Bloomquist team. “We’ve been working together as a team.” Brandon Overton chased Weiss to the line in second with Brandon Sheppard, Chase Junghans and Jimmy Mars rounding out the top five. d’s sixth top-five run in as many events including one runner-up finish, two third-place showing, one fourth-place finish and a fifth-place outing was enough to net the 13th Annual Wild West Shootout championship. “We stayed in the top five all week,” Sheppard commented. “We had a lot of bad luck all week that nobody ever saw. My hat’s off to all of my crew.” Darrell Nelson opened the night by fending off Rodney Sanders to win the 25-lap Mesilla Valley Transportation/Border International Modifieds presented by Arizona Differential feature event postponed from Saturday night while Ricky Thornton, Jr., became the first repeat winner of the week by leading Sanders and Dereck Ramirez to the stripe in the finale. Five top-fives in six events including the makeup feature win gave Nelson the Wild West Shootout Modified championship by just nine points over Sanders. South Dakota’s Cole Searing put an exclamation point on a second consecutive Wild West Shootout championship effort in the RHRSwag.com X-Mods presented by Barnett Harley-Davidson ranks by racing to his fourth win of the week ahead of Austin Hunter and Preston Carr in the 20-lap finale. After winning three of six features last year, Searing upped it to four along with a runner-up and a third-place finish to take the title by a comfortable 76 point advantage.
