Reutzel Ready to Race after Wild Ride in Jackson Nationals Opener
Lonnie Wheatley, JACKSON, Minn. (June 2, 2017) – After a wild ride to close out the opening night of the Jackson Nationals for Aaron Reutzel, the Clute, TX, racer and the Dissolvalloy Downhole Revolution/BC Fundz No. 87 Triple-X Sprint Car team are already preparing for Friday’s second night of World of Outlaws action following a quick trip to the hospital.
It was a night that started out well for Reutzel and the Wren Motorsports/Momentum Racing Suspensions team at the Jackson (MN) Motorplex with a solid qualifying effort and a runner-up heat race finish that put him in the Dash where he finished seventh in a new car that he and Shane Liebig had just assembled.
But, just a few laps into the feature, the caution lights flickered for a Kraig Kinser flip in turn three. As a car checked up in front of him, Reutzel jumped the right rear tire and went for a wild series of end-over-end flips down the frontstretch.
Emergency personnel were on the scene immediately as Reutzel exited the Nattress Construction/Wings Unlimited machine.
A trip to the hospital followed with CT scans of Reutzel’s head and back coming back clear.
With just the expected bumps and bruises from such a ride, Reutzel and the Wright Way Logistics/Walker Performance team expect to be back on track for Friday’s second round of Jackson Nationals competition.
Those unable to take in this weekend’s Jackson Nationals can watch all the action live on-line via PPV at www.dirtvision.com.
2017 Quick Stats: 30 races, 1 win, 6 top-fives, 11 top-tens.
