Photo Gallery: Aaron Reutzel Wins WoO SoCal Showdown At Perris

Aaron Reutzel.

In dominating fashion Aaron Reutzel won everything there was to win at Perris Auto Speedway, en route to his second career World of Outlaws win. He set the fastest in practice and qualifying, won his Heat race, won the DIRTVision Fast Pass Dash and then went on to lead all 30 laps of the Feature. Carson Macedo and Rico Abreu, who respectively finished second and third, could close on Reutzel, but could never get enough of a run to challenge him for the lead.

Coming into the Perris event, Reutzel had a top-five and two top-10 finishes in the WoO California swing, and sat seventh in Series points ahead of full-time World of Outlaws drivers such as Shane Stewart and Madsen. Both Macedo and Abreu are California natives who grew up racing on the California swing tracks, which makes Reutzel’s performance even sweeter.

Reutzel’s win closes the story of the 2019 World of Outlaws Spring Break California swing, but the Series continues next weekend on Friday, April 5, for the Wildcat Shootout at USA Raceway in Tucson, Ariz. and on Saturday, April 6, for the Arizona Desert Shootout at Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Arizona where they put on a spectacular show the last time they raced on the 1/3-mile oval track. Donny Schatz navigated his way from 12th place to the lead by lap 21, and never looked back, claiming his first win at the track last year.
