Reutzel prevails at Texana

Bryan Hulbert - EDNA, Texas (July 5, 2013) When the dust settled at the Texana Raceway Park, it was Aaron Reutzel picking up his fifth Griffith Truck and Equipment Gulf South Regional win of 2013, leading only the final five laps of the night’s 25 lap feature event.

Drawing the front row, Blake Hahn jumped to the point for the first four rounds. Surrendering the lead to Channin Tankersley for a pair of laps, Hahn raced back to the lead on Lap 7 and set the pace until Lap 19.

The following lap scored the No. 87 of Reutzel out front where the Clute, Texas driver would remain. Channin Tankersley worked to second with Hahn slipping to the final step on the podium. Ray Allen Kulhanek and Travis Elliot made up the top five with Michael Lang, Ryan Beechler, Beau Smith, Klint Angelette, and J.J. Simmons rounded out the top ten.

Reutzel’s win has brought the race for the Griffith Truck and Equipment Gulf South Regional championship to 17 markers behind Ray Allen Kulhanek.

The Griffith Truck and Equipment Gulf South Region returns to competition on Saturday, July 6 at the Battleground Speedway in Highlands, Texas.
