Aaron Reutzel Earns His First Lucas Oil ASCS Texas World Dirt Track Championship

FT. WORTH, Texas (May 14, 2016) An emotional victory turns around a lackluster start to his Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network title defense as Aaron Reutzel captured his first National Tour victory of 2016 at the Texas Motor Speedway Dirt Track for his first Texas World Dirt Track Championship win.

“Man that was awesome. You know, going out there we knew it was going to be rubber down, and you figured the pole guy would win that one, but they left us just enough top to get up there and get to them. Johnny, I really thing, was better than us and if we hadn’t had the restart we would have ran second but we were just good enough to get him on that restart,” commented Aaron in Victory Lane.

“I got a perfect start and ran the top perfect. After that I never did go back up there and just held on the rest of the night, but I really liked running the top in the beginning because I knew I was saving my right rear while the rest of those guys were burning theirs off so I knew I could go harder, longer, than the rest of those guys. This is kind of an emotional win. We’ve been struggling so hard lately and I’m just glad Marty hasn’t given up on me. I’ve pretty hard on him because I had a hell of a year last year, so it’s been tough. I also need to thank my wife, Shelbey. I just can’t thank her enough.”

FORT WORTH, Texas (May 9, 2016) – Seth Bergman, a native of Snohomish, Wash., may not be a Texan, but knows the importance of wearing a cowboy hat when visiting the Lone Star State.
