JACKSON, Minn. (June 23, 2021) – All eyes will be on Aaron Reutzel this weekend as he has a chance to garner a six-figure bonus.
Reutzel captured the inaugural $30,000-to-win BillionAuto.com Huset’s 50 on Tuesday at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, S.D., during the midpoint of THE SHOWDOWN. The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series victory gives Reutzel an opportunity to score a $100,000 bonus if he wins the 43 rd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals finale this Saturday at Jackson Motorplex.
The event, which has quickly turned into a crown jewel in sprint car racing, showcases $10,000-to-win and $1,000-to-start preliminary nights on Thursday and Friday prior to the $50,000-to-win finale on Saturday. That will be the best-paying World of Outlaws feature so far this year.
If Reutzel wins on Saturday he takes home a whopping $180,000 for his success this week.
It won’t be an easy task as drivers will accumulate points every time he or she competes on the track except the dash. The top four in event points after the two preliminary nights will be locked into a special King of the Hill. The four qualifier winners on Saturday will join them to determine the first four rows of the main event. The remaining feature positions will be filled by top-three finishers in the qualifiers as well as the top four in the B Main.
The event point format is 100 points for quick time during qualifying with each position dropping one point. Heat race winners receive 100 points with each position dropping five points. Each feature offers points with the A Main awarding 250 points to the winner and dropping by three points per position.
A stout field of competitors is expected to converge upon Jackson Motorplex this week, including Reutzel, 2017 and 2019 AGCO Jackson Nationals champion Brad Sweet, 2018 event winner Donny Schatz and defending champion Logan Schuchart among dozens of others.
The pits open at 2 p.m. and the main gates at 4 p.m. each night during the AGCO Jackson Nationals. Racing is slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. each night.
