Bryan Hulbert – LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (September 29, 2022) Out of 74 drivers on hand Thursday night, Aaron Reutzel proved unstoppable in the 15th running of the $5,646 to win Ralph Henson Memorial, with a dominating performance against the ASCS Mid-South Region at I-30 Speedway.

Battling with Wayne Johnson on two starts, Aaron and Wayne traded the position twice before the first lap was complete, with the No. 8r holding the spot. Into heavy lapped traffic before the caution shown with ten laps to run, the restart saw a trio of slower cars in the mix. Giving Aaron plenty of breathing room, the focus turned to the race for second, with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. having worked past Johnson before the pause.

Able to fend off the run of the No. 2c, Sam went to work reeling in Reutzel.

Unable to make up much time, Aaron hit the line with 2.953-seconds to spare. Sam Hafertepe, Jr., in second, was followed by Jordon Mallett, who, off the final turn, got two positions as Wayne rolled up the cushion. Three wide to the front stretch, the No. 2c held on to fourth by 0.099-seconds over Ryan Timms, who charged from 13th to fifth.

Derek Hagar crossed sixth and secured the 2022 I-30 Speedway track championship and ASCS Mid-South Regional title. Brad Bowden crossed seventh, with Garet Williamson hauling from 18th to eighth. Kyler Johnson and Dylan Westbrook completed the top ten.

Events at I-30 Speedway continue on Friday, September 30, and Saturday, October 1, with the 35th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires. Both nights go green at 7:30 P.M. (CDT). More information can be found at www.i-30speedway.com.
