Aaron Reutzel Shines in Traffic for Second Lucas Oil ASCS Score


MUSKOGEE, Okla. (May 2, 2014) - Lapped traffic was the teller of tales at the Outlaw Motorsports Park on Friday night with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by MAVTV American Real as Aaron Reutzel took the battle three wide for nearly two laps leading up to Lap 17 to capture the lead, and the win for the second time in as many races.


Starting third, Reutzel jumped to second on the start, nearly taking the lead from Jason Johnson on the opening lap.


"I can't believe this. I took so long to get one, and now we have two of them back-to-back, there's just no words to describe this." Asked about the start of the race and nearly taking the lead then, Reutzel explained, "I knew if I couldn't get him on the start, I had to get him in traffic."


Jason Johnson held on to finish second, posting his best finish of the season in Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour competition and in doing so, earned his 300th top-ten finish in Lucas Oil ASCS National competition. He joins Gary Wright as the only other driver to exceed 300 top-ten finishes.


"My car was really good. I made some good laps but when we got to lapped traffic, he could just go," said Johnson of his pursuit of Reutzel. "I was on the mat. I don't know what he was doing to get off the corners, but I really had a great car. I can't thank my guys enough."


Dustin Morgan worked past Jeff Swindell on Lap 21 to earn the final podium step.


"The car felt good. I can't thank Jones and the crew enough. We're on a roll right now and I'm definitely looking forward to tomorrow night."


Brad Loyet worked to fourth on Lap 23 with Jeff Swindell ending his night fifth.


Brian Brown moved up from eighth to sixth with Johnny Herrera from ninth to seventh. Tony Bruce, Jr. advanced from fourteenth to finish eighth with Danny Wood ninth. The top ten rounded out with Sam Hafertepe, Jr.


Joined by the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region, Dustin Morgan was the highest finishing Sooner Region driver. Danny Wood earned second place points with Sean McClelland, Mike Goodman, and Alex Sewell taking fifth place points for the region


Four Heat Races saw Danny Wood, Jason Johnson, James Mosher, and Brian Brown earning wins. The night's lone B-Feature went to Tim Crawley.
