Reutzel Gears up for Stretch Run!


Lonnie Wheatley, CLUTE, Texas (September 11, 2014) With a number of notable events on the slate to finish out the 2014 season, Aaron Reutzel and the BC Fundz/Wren Motorsports No. 87 Triple-X team are ready to finish out the season on a strong note after a pair of idle weekends.


Already with six feature wins this year aboard the Momentum Racing Suspensions/Danny Sander Construction/ButlerBuilt Sprint Car, the Clute, TX, racer looks to put some additional notches on the win column over the latter portion of the season along with regaining a few point positions in the ASCS National Tour points race.


The pursuit of more wins begins this weekend with Texas Motor Speedways Port-a-Cool U.S. Dirt Track Championships in Fort Worth, Texas, on Friday and Saturday. Its a place that has Reutzel has found to his liking in the past.


Weve always got around there really well, the track is always racy and works well for us, the driver of the Scott Baylor Racing Engines/Basic One Services machine said of the state-of-the-art Texas Motor Speedway dirt track facility.


After charging through the field from B Main action and into the top ten before cutting a tire in his first TMS outing two years ago, Reutzel raced from 11th to fourth in last years ASCS National Tour event at TMS.


This weekends action at Texas Motor Speedway is the first of three September weekend doubles for Reutzel and the Lone Star Hydro Maintenance/Wright Way Logistics team with I-80 Speedways Fall Brawl on September 19-20 in Greenwood, NE, and then Lucas Oil Speedways Hockett/McMillin Memorial on September 26-27 in Wheatland, MO, to follow.


October offers up the Devils Bowl Winter Nationals on October 17-18 in Mesquite, TX, and then the $15,000 to win Short Track Nationals at Little Rocks I-30 Speedway on October 22-25.


November puts the wraps on Reutzels 2014 Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour campaign with Battle at the Border stops in El Paso and Las Cruces on November 7-8 before the season finale at Yumas Cocopah Speedway on November 14-15.


Slipping from sixth to tenth in ASCS National points after missing the recent Jackson Nationals in Minnesota, Reutzel has his sights on regaining those positions over the final events of the year.


Weve spent the last couple of weeks going through everything, trying to make sure weve got everything we need to finish out the year along with some of the non-wing stuff to finish it out as well, Reutzel concludes.


The stretch run gets under way this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. And no better place for Reutzel and team to regain mid-season form that landed him in victory lane on a regular basis.


2014 Quick Stats: 47 races, 6 A Main wins, 22 top-fives, 31 top-tens.
