Rico Abreu goes wire-to-wire at Muskingum County Speedway for first All Star victory of 2020​

DRESDEN, Ohio (July 9, 2020) - Snapping an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 winless streak that dates back to Atomic Speedway on August 25, 2017, St. Helena, California’s Rico Abreu demolished the field on Thursday evening at Muskingum County Speedway, eventually leading all 30 circuits from the pole position to score night six of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires.

Abreu, driver of the Rico Abreu/Curb-Agajanian Racing/Abreu Vineyards/Lucas Oil Products/Curb Records/Self Made Racing/Dancer Logistics/No. 24 sprint car, was just shy of perfect during his visit to the Dresden, Ohio, highbanks with his only defeat during the entire program coming in the form of a runner-up performance during his respective heat race. The now eight-time All Star Circuit of Champions feature winner, two of which occurring during Ohio Sprint Speedweek, set the fastest qualifying time in his respective group of qualifiers, and won the first of two dashes, ultimately setting up his pole position.

Eventually escaping to a comfortable margin of victory that reached nearly a full straightaway, Abreu did encounter some pressure during the non-stop 30-lap contest, most of which in the form of lapped traffic. Although reaching slower cars by lap seven, it was not until lap 12 when things started to really bunch up in front of the familiar No. 24. The high speed roadblock allowed fellow frontrunners Aaron Reutzel and Shane Stewart to close the lead gap, all within just a few car lengths by lap 15.

Although intense for a moment, the pressure faded just as rapidly as it started, as Abreu was able to patiently navigate slower cars and padd his lead to a pair of lappers by lap 22.

“Patience was keen there when we got to lapped traffic. You got guys like Aaron Reutzel, Shane Stewart, Kyle Larson behind you; you gotta really hustle it,” an elated Rico Abreu said in victory lane. “My car had a really good right rear squeeze to it, so I could carry a lot of momentum to the center of the corner then just kinda back everything up getting off. My guys did a phenomenal job. They worked all night long and made little tweaks every time we got off of the track. It’s all based on communication with them and making sure you’re giving them the right feedback. I feel like we hit all of our steps tonight.

“A big thanks to all of the fans for coming out tonight. It’s a Thursday night, so it’s great to see a healthy crowd. I’m looking forward to racing the rest of the week with the All Stars. It’s a lot of fun getting to race with them.”

Shane Stewart worked his way around Aaron Reutzel to claim second with two laps remaining. Reutzel, the current Ohio Sprint Speedweek points leader, maintained third at the final checkers, followed by Kyle Larson and Josh Baughman.

Kyle Larson scores Ohio Sprint Speedweek victory at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex

PEEBLES, Ohio (July 8, 2020) - Forced to settle with a hard charging performance at Wayne County Speedway after getting involved in a tangle during his respective heat race, ultimately rallying from 21st to sixth in 30 green flag laps, Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson bounced back on Wednesday night at Brushcreek Motorsports Park and leveled the field during night five of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires, eventually leading 26 laps to claim a 14th-career Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory worth $5,000.

Lining up sixth on the main event grid, it was apparent from the start that Larson’s pace was unrivaled, utilizing his initial jump to climb three spots before crossing by the flagstand for the first time. By lap three, ‘Yung Money’ was powering by Eliason for second, next setting his aim on Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley. Just two circuits later, Larson was in command, sneaking under Conley’s No. 3C as the pair raced through turns one and two.

From that point forward, it was all Kyle Larson at the top of the charts, easily navigating through traffic before escaping to a near-five second advantage at the end of 30 non-stop laps.

“I watched a little bit of video, but that was it,” said first-time Brushcreek competitor, Kyle Larson, driver of the Paul Silva-owned/Finley Farms/Tarlton and Sons/Durst/Lucas Oil/No. 57 sprint car. “It was a unique race track, for sure. I don’t think I’ve ever been on a track quite like it.

“My car was really good. I could run where everyone else wasn’t,” Larson continued. “All of the lapped cars were either on the bottom or the top, so I could stay relaxed knowing that I would have a lane open when I got to lapped cars. I started to get a little stressed late in the race. When you’re the leader, you never know where second and third place are. I knew (Reutzel) and (Abreu) would be there somewhere. There were some lappers that showed me their nose on the bottom. You just have to focus on what’s ahead and keep moving forward.”

Rico Abreu made a late charge to finish second at Brushcreek Motorsports Park, followed by two-time and defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, Cale Conley, and polesitter, Cory Eliason. Abreu faded as far back as fifth before making the surge to second in the final two circuits.

Cap Henry claims Duffy Smith Memorial at Wayne County for second win of 2020 Ohio Sprint Speedweek

ORRVILLE, Ohio (July 7, 2020) - Becoming the first repeat winner of 2020 Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires featuring the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1, Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry found himself back in the Speedweek limelight on Monday night at Wayne County Speedway, doing so by tracking down race-long leader, Cale Conley, and completing a winning pass with two laps remaining to secure the $6,000-to-win Duffy Smith Memorial.

Now fifth in the Ohio Sprint Speedweek standings, Henry opened the nine-race Speedweek campaign with a victory at Attica Raceway Park on Friday evening, July 3.

“When we took the checkered, I didn’t even know we took the checkered. I actually thought a caution came out and I started to get really antsy. Then, when Eric (Walls) came over the radio and said ‘top three to the scale,’ I knew the race was over,” Cap Henry laughed in Wayne County Speedway victory lane, driver of the Brett and Patty Lane-owned/Dragon’s Milk White/Beer Barrel Bourbon/Pro Auto Wraps/FK Rod Ends/No. 4 sprint car. “Man, I can’t thank this team enough. They presented me with an incredible opportunity a few years back and it has been great ever since. I’m happy we’ve been able to come out here and take advantage.”

Utilizing an inside-second row starting position, Henry, now a two-time All Star winner at ‘Orrville’s Historic Oval,’ was a contender right from the drop of the green, getting away third after the initial start before taking over second from Zeb Wise on lap eight. At the time, Cale Conley was the race leader, earning the early jump after starting second on the 30-lap grid.

Despite getting the opportunity to show his nose to Conley on several occasions, and having the chance to restart on the tail tank of the Vienna, West Virginia-native twice, once on lap ten and again on lap 13, it was not until lap 27 when Henry was presented with his first, true takeover attempt.

Throwing a slider that did not stick on lap 27, Henry made the next attempt work, this time using slower traffic as a pick to drive underneath Conley at the exit of turn four on lap 28.

“I could see the bottom was starting to come in there, so we moved down and I noticed I was starting to make some gains on Conley,” Cap Henry continued. “Even when we got to traffic there at the end, that groove was still working. It almost looked like Cale (Conely) lost his brakes because he was so committed to the top and wouldn’t come down.”

Cale Conley held on to finish second on Monday evening, followed by Rico Abreu, Jac Haudenschild and Justin Peck. Elk Grove, California’s Kyle Larson charged from 21st to finish sixth earning the evening’s Hercules Tires Hard Charger Award.

What’s Next:
After a previously scheduled rain date of Tuesday, July 7, the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires on Wednesday evening, July 8, at Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles, Ohio.

Aaron Reutzel scores Speedweek victory during second stop at Fremont Speedway

FREMONT, Ohio (July 5, 2020) - The third try was definitely the charm for Clute, Texas-native Aaron Reutzel, as the two-time and defending Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 titleholder finally cracked into the 2020 Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires win column, doing so with a victory at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, on Sunday evening, July 5.

The win, the second of Reutzel’s career at Fremont, not only secured a $5,000 payday, but it ultimately furthered a Speedweek podium streak that already includes a third-place performance at Attica Raceway Park on Friday, July 3, and a runner-up finish at Fremont on Saturday, July 4.

Lining up third on the main event grid by way of dash result, it did not take long for the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry to find its way to the front, first sneaking by Paul McMahan to secure second after a restart on lap five, then taking command from race leader, Lee Jacobs, on lap 16. From that point forward, Reutzel was unchallenged, sailing ahead to solidify a 32nd All Star Circuit of Champions victory and his seventh of the season.

Nashville’s Paul McMahan chased Reutzel to the final checkers, followed by Lee Jacobs, Saturday night winner Buddy Kofoid, and Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley.

“It’s pretty cool to win on a race track like this. The last time we won here, it was rough and heavy which is more my style,” Aaron Reutzel said, who now owns the Ohio Sprint Speedweek points lead. “This is as slick as it gets right here. Anything we had in our notebook, we couldn’t look at. We basically had to think ‘what would non-wing guys do’ because the wing really wasn’t working well.”

Although a contender from the start, a pair of cautions on lap five proved to be a positive momentum changer for Reutzel. Restarting in the third position, Reutzel quickly moved by McMahan to claim second, instantly applying pressure to race leader and Fremont Speedway track record holder, Lee Jacobs. By lap ten, Reutzel was all over Jacobs for the race lead, actually pulling even with the 1881 Racing entry on several occasions before slipping underneath Jacobs on lap 16.

Despite a third yellow flag appearance on lap 19, and a fourth caution on lap 24, Reutzel remained sound at the front of the field, never giving McMahan, who followed Reutzel beyond Jacobs for second on lap 18, an opportunity to capitalize. Even when Reutzel found himself entangled with slower cars during the final circuits, the two-time champ was untouchable, instantly separating himself from McMahan by two lappers.

“I can’t say enough about this Folkens Brothers Trucking, Fischer Body Shop, Dissolvalloy race team right now,” Reutzel continued. “Rough and heavy, slick; we just seem to adapt to anything and it’s pretty cool when you can do stuff like that. I couldn’t be more proud of my guys.”

The caution on lap 24 eventually turned into an open red scenario, which allowed the track’s ambulance to respond to a call in the pit area.

What’s Next:
The first segment of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires will continue on Monday evening, July 6, with a visit to ‘Orrville’s Historic Oval’ - Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio. The $6,000-to-win program will conclude a four-race sweep for the All Stars with Ohio Sprint Speedweek continuing on Wednesday evening, July 8, during a visit to Brushcreek Motorsports Complex in Peebles, Ohio.

Buddy Kofoid earns July 4th Speedweek victory over All Stars at Fremont Speedway

FREMONT, Ohio (July 4, 2020) - Forced to settle for second after getting overtaken with five laps remaining one night prior at Attica Raceway Park, Penngrove, California’s Buddy Kofoid redeemed himself in a big way during night two of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires, eventually leading all 35 circuits to score a second-ever Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 victory in front of a packed house at Fremont Speedway.

Starting from the pole position by way of dash victory, Kofoid’s campaign at the front of the field was relatively uncontested, with his only real challenges in the form of restarts, three in total, and a long altercation with lapped traffic.

Although a sure-fire favorite in any All Star main event, two-time and defending Series champion, Aaron Reutzel, was unable to apply any pressure on Kofoid after attaining the second spot on lap 15. Reutzel would drive home second, followed by Cole Duncan, Greg Wilson, and the evening’s fast qualifier, Josh Baughman.

“Yea, shit, I don’t know what to say,” Buddy Kofoid said in Fremont Speedway victory lane, driver of the Ed Neumeister-owned/Gill Construction/Linder’s Speed Equipment/No. 11N sprint car. “Last year if the track was like this, we would have been a podium or a top-five car. The guys have really picked it up and we got our car so good on slick tracks like this. Even at Attica last night, we were so good. I can’t thank Ed Neumeister and everyone enough for what they do for me. They let me come out and have some fun. This is only my third sprint car race this year, so to have a first and a second with the All Stars is pretty damn cool.”

Despite a pair of red flag stoppages on lap five resulting in an early fuel stop, as well as an additional caution on lap 15, it was smooth sailing for Kofoid at the front of the field, and with the first-half cautions negating any chances for traffic, it was not until lap 23 when the frontrunners reached slower cars for the first time.

By lap 27, traffic intensified, now stacked-up two and three wide in front of Kofoid and second-place running Aaron Reutzel. In a desperate attempt to navigate by a potential roadblock, Kofoid drove high through turns three and four and passed two lappers at once, clearing the pair just before completing lap 28. The move essentially sealed the deal for Kofoid, opening up to a near-straightaway advantage by the 35th and final circuit.

“We had some lapped cars there at the end that kinda made things a little interesting, but I was able to get them,” Kofoid continued. “I knew once we had some cars behind us, I figured it would maybe take some time for the guys behind me to get them.

“I have to leave after Monday to go run the (Keith Kunz Motorsports) midget, so hopefully some of you guys will watch the midget race, too!”

The $5,000 All Star triumph was Kofoid’s first at Fremont Speedway, with his first-ever All Star victory taking shape at Wayne County Speedway during the 2019 edition of Ohio Sprint Speedweek.

Cap Henry earns second-ever All Star victory in Ohio Sprint Speedweek opener at Attica Raceway Park

ATTICA, Ohio (July 3, 2020) - For the second time in his career, and for the first time at Attica Raceway Park, Republic, Ohio’s Cap Henry is an Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 main event winner, doing so over a stout contingent of 46 entries during night one of Cometic Gasket Ohio Sprint Speedweek presented by Hercules Tires.

Impressive, nonetheless, Henry’s route to Attica Raceway Park victory lane commenced from the third row, forced to work his way to the front twice while fending off former All Star winner and California standout, Buddy Kofoid, as well as two-time All Star champion and current Series point leader, Aaron Reutzel. Henry’s second and final takeover occurred on lap 35, using the last inch of Attica’s bottom groove to sneak under Kofoid as the pair battled off of turn four.

Kofoid chased Henry to the final checkers, followed by Reutzel, Cale Thomas and Cale Conley.

“Brett and Patty Lane gave me a great opportunity here and we continue to make the most of it. Zack (Meyers) came on board last year and this is incredible,” Cap Henry said, driver of the Brett and Patty Lane-owned/Dragon’s Milk White/Beer Barrel Bourbon/Pro Auto Wraps/FK Rod Ends/No. 4 sprint car. “I’ve come so close to winning one of these speedweek races here and to finally knock one off is so cool.”

Starting from the fifth position, Henry’s initial jump proved to be beneficial, using momentum to slip his way into third before the completion of lap one. Aaron Reutzel, fresh off of a win at Volunteer Speedway, led the field from the outside-pole.

By the end of lap three, Henry had powered by Kofoid to take control of second, now setting his aim on the defending All Star champion. Inching closer and closer as the laps clicked down, Henry was in position to take the lead for the first time on lap 12, eventually cruising by Reutzel on the bottom just as the leaders were approaching slower traffic. Kofoid mimicked Henry’s move and also powered by Reutzel to take second on lap 15.

The 40-lap main event’s first and only caution appeared on lap 21 ultimately setting up a single-file restart. A better launch for Kofoid proved to be a benefactor for the Penngrove, California-native, using the top of turns one and two to slingshot around Henry before pinching off the No. 4 in turn three.

Although Kofoid was able to maintain composure and keep command, Henry never lost sight of the Ed Neumeister-owned entry and kept himself within striking distance. By lap 35, Henry was ready to pounce again, this time squeezing by Kofoid on the bottom of turn four.

Despite one last encounter with traffic, Henry held tough, driving away to a $5,000 payday.

“Once Buddy (Kofoid) got back by me, I just needed to settle down and get back into my rhythm,” Henry continued. “I kept trying to get lower and lower, all while avoiding the infield tires. I just had to be patient. Lucky for me, our car was great on those long runs. We ended up getting back to him just in time.

“I really wasn’t sure what to do for that restart. I heard (Kofoid) and then I saw him, then I knew I was in trouble. I just had to get settled down and rely on my car on those long runs.”

Aaron Reutzel tracks down Cory Eliason to score Volunteer Speedway victory

BULLS GAP, Tenn. (June 27, 2020) - It took fifth-starting Aaron Reutzel 23 circuits to track down Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 championship rival Cory Eliason, but once the Clute, Texas-native secured the top spot on lap 24, the Texas Sprint Car Nationals main event on the highbanks of Volunteer Speedway was as good as complete. Although forced to endure a green-white-checkered finish, Reutzel’s dominance was clear, eventually escaping to a two-second advantage in just two trips around the speedway.

A sweet ending to a bitter night for the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports team, Reutzel was forced to change motors after his respective hot lap session, only to be caught-up in an incident during the evening’s dash. The familiar No. 87 did restart the dash, but had to settle with a fifth-place result.

The $5,000 triumph, a first-ever for Reutzel at Volunteer and a first-ever as a full-time All Star in the state of Tennessee, bumped Reutzel’s 2020 win tally to six during All Star Circuit of Champions competition, continuing his chase toward a third consecutive Series title.

Eliason, who led the first 23 laps before losing the top spot to Reutzel, held on to finish second at Volunteer on Saturday night, followed by Nashville’s Paul McMahan and three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Tony Stewart.

“Everyone always talks about how good their team is, but I have the best team in the pit area. This was definitely a tough night,” Aaron Reutzel boasted in Volunteer Speedway victory lane, backed by Folkens Brothers Trucking, Fischer Body Shop, Ti22, and Hollywood Blasting. “We had to do so much tonight, but they never gave up and continued to work hard no matter what was thrown at them. They proved why we won the championship the last two years. My team won this race tonight.”

Utilizing the outside-front row starting spot, Visalia, California’s Cory Eliason jumped to the early advantage, quickly driving away from Paul McMahan, Sye Lynch and Tony Stewart. In fact, Eliason’s only challenge during the first 15 laps of the 30-lap contest was in the form of lapped traffic, which came into play for the first time on lap nine. At the time, Reutzel was battling in the fifth position, eventually earning a spot over Stewart to claim fourth on lap 13. Two circuits later, Reutzel was on the move again, this time working by the Pete Grove-owned entry occupied by Sye Lynch.

Working the very topside of turns one and two, and sneaking through the middle and very bottom of turns three and four, Reutzel powered his way around McMahan to take second on lap 20, this time using a slide job between turns one and two to secure the position.

Despite Eliason’s attempt to escape in traffic, Reutzel’s momentum was too powerful to overcome, as the Baughman-Reutzel Motorsports entry cut the near-straightaway lead to less than a car length by lap 22. One circuit later, Reutzel made his first bid for the lead, and although the slider did not stick, a slider the following lap would, driving by Eliason at the exit of turn two on lap 24.

The main event’s first and only caution appeared on lap 29 forcing the aforementioned green-white-checkered finish.

“You could only drive into the corner so hard above the cushion because you would just slide to the fence,” Reutzel continued. “There was only one piece of moisture in that whole corner and that was right along the bottom. When I went in and turned down, I could get a good run down the front stretch. I just kept digging at it and digging at it and I was able to make up some time on people. We were able to track down (Eliason) without a caution and that’s just a statement of how good we were.”

“We were good in one and two, but we struggled in three and four. That’s where Aaron (Reutzel) beat us,” Cory Eliason said, driver of Rudeen Racing No. 26. “He was able to carry momentum a lot better than I could. We are getting a lot closer to where we need to be. This kinda happened to me in Australia where I finished on the podium twelve or so times in a row before I finally won one. Sometimes finishing second can get frustrating. Hats off to my team. We were fast all night.”

As an added bonus for Reutzel, his feature performance also secured the evening’s Hercules Tires Hard Charger Award.

What’s Next:
The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue their weekend in the Volunteer State with a second consecutive appearance at Volunteer Speedway in Bulls Gap, Tennessee, on Sunday, June 28. The Texas Sprint Car Nationals finale will award a $5,000 top prize.
