KNOXVILLE, Iowa – The upcoming sprint car season is going to be a sizable endeavor for Aaron Reutzel and Ridge & Sons Racing, marked by a bevy of sponsor support as the team chases the Knoxville Raceway track championship.
The Clute, Texas, native will be aiming to capture his first 410ci title at the Sprint Car Capital of the World, in addition to other marquee regional wins against the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series and High Limit Racing national contenders.
Ridge & Sons Racing and Reutzel will have the backing of major partners including Folkens Brothers Trucking, Don Long & STC, American Table, The P.O. Box, B&L Holdings, Rasmusson Service Center, and Xpress Laundry.
The team and partner relationships run deep at RSR, with the end goal including both victories and championships, as well as a heightened sense of exposure and return on investment for all involved.
“We’re pretty blessed to have so many great people involved with us at Ridge & Sons Racing, and it’s support like that that allows us to go out and be competitive on two different fronts this season,” said team manager Brian Ridge. “Aaron is an exceptional talent and he will do a great job at representing all of our partners at the highest level.
“Folkens Brother Trucking, STC, American Table, The P.O. Box, Rasmusson, Xpress, B&L – they aren’t just partners; they’re the building blocks and essential components for what we hope will be a successful season.”
The Knoxville Raceway season kicks off April 19-20, with Friday featuring a practice session before Saturday’s full racing program.
Reutzel, who recently won the prestigious Grand Annual Sprint Car Classic in Australia, will venture south to the Sunshine State prior to his planned schedule in the Midwest.
The past ASCS national champion kicks things off with High Limit Racing and 360 sprint car competition at East Bay Raceway Park in Tampa, Fla., from Feb. 12-17.
“It will be a great way to shake things down and better ourselves for the rest of the year,” noted Ridge of East Bay. “We hope everyone can join us.”
