Reuvers Comes Home As ASA Midwest Tour Heads To Shakopee's Raceway Park

DAYTONA BEACH, FL (August 9, 2007) - It's been a long summer traveling throughout the Midwest, but Donny Reuvers of Dundas, MN is heading home as the American Speed Association Kwik Trip Midwest Tour presented by Echo Outdoor Power Equipment rolls into Raceway Park in Shakopee, MN. The Shakopee 100, Presented by Prairie Lawn and Garden will take to the track on Sunday August 12th.

Reuvers, a former Raceway Park Track Champion, looks forward to returning to his home track and the fans at Raceway Park. "It's always fun going somewhere where you know there is going to be a lot of people there to support you," said Reuvers. "Hopefully we don't let them down and bring home the checkers."

Starting out the season, Reuvers set a goal of just making all of the ASA Midwest Tour races. "So far we've done that, but it's pretty tough when you come to a lot of these places that we've never been too," said Reuvers. "Hopefully we can race well and finish up there in the front." Consistent finishes helped to move him to the top of the point standings. Reuvers was the points leader heading into Tuesday night's race at Wisconsin International Raceway, but a ninth-place finish put him 14 makers back of the new ASA Midwest Tour points leader, Nathan Haseleu, fresh off his third-place run at WIR.

Raceway Park is a tight ¼ mile track that Reuvers has had a lot of success on in recent years. "I have a lot of laps out there and we have a setup that works really good out there," said Reuvers. Many drivers find the track hard to pass on, but Reuvers has made his car able to handle on both the inside and the outside grooves. "I don't think we do anything crazy or weird or anything, more of it is just the laps that I have out there, that's the key." Twenty-six cars will make up the field for the Shakopee 100, with over $35,000 in posted awards on the line for the competitors.

In addition to the ASA Midwest Tour events, Raceway Park Hobby Stocks and Figure 8's will joining the race program. Spectator gates open at 3 PM, with ASA Midwest Tour Qualifying set to begin at 4 PM. A driver autograph session is slated for 5 PM, with the first green flag of the night set to fly at 6 PM.
