Kyle Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade No.91 team have struggled at Attica in two attempts earlier this season. Both the April and June events at the one-third mile banked clay oval located on the Attica Fairgrounds in north central Ohio resulted in DNQ’s for the team on its rookie campaign with the All Stars. Early September brought a pair of opportunities at Attica to show the improvement they have made as a team over the course of the 2021 season.
9/3: Attica Raceway Park – Attica, OH
(39 cars, Qualifying 6th in group D/30th overall, Heat 7th, B-main 4th, A-main 16th)
Night one of the two day All Star Circuit of Champions event at Attica Raceway Park saw 39 teams pit-side to compete for the $5,000 preliminary night top prize. Kyle Reinhardt was the first in group D, and 31st overall, to hit the track for qualifying.
The struggles for Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team at Attica continued, as his qualifying lap of 13.057 was only good enough for 6th quickest in his group, placing him outside row three for the fourth heat race.
The top five finishers from each heat would transfer to the A-main, but Reinhardt wasn’t able to mount a challenge for a transfer spot. He rode home in 7th, relegating him to the B-main for one more shot to make the field.
Reinhardt would need to turn things around in the 12-lap B-main and he did just that. He started 8th and steadily drove forward. By lap 9 he was in 5th position and within striking distance of a transfer spot. Reinhardt was able to run his fastest lap of the race on lap 11 and use the momentum to execute a last lap pass to claim the 4th and final transfer spot into the A-main.
Rolling off from his 24th starting spot, the All Star Rookie of the Year candidate continued turning a bad night into a good one. During the 35-lap A-main, Reinhardt battled his way forward, making the most of a few restarts. When the checkered flag flew, the Capitol Renegade No.91 had reached 16th. Had it not been for brake issues late in the going, the result would likely have even been a few spots better, but given the team’s 2021 record at Attica, it was step in the right direction. Going +4 in the B-main and +8 in the A-main shows progress is being made.
9/4: Attica Raceway Park – Attica, OH
(36 cars, Qualifying 3rd in group B/11th overall, Heat 2nd, A-main 23rd)
Reinhardt and team returned Saturday night for the $10,000 to win Attica Ambush finale, hoping to continue their momentum. They were one of 36 teams signed in to take their shot at the attractive purse.
Qualifying in Group B Saturday night, Kyle registered the 11th best overall lap, good enough for 3rd in the group. Reinhardt started the second heat from outside the front row and chased leader Jac Haudenchild throughout the 8-lap event. A win would have meant a spot in the dash redraw for the Neptune City, NJ native but he was unable to get by “The Wild Child” and settled for the runner-up finish.
Their 12th place start in the A-main Saturday night showed the steady gains that Reinhardt and crew chief Bob Curtis had made at Attica in 2021. Unfortunately, the results at the end of the night were not as indicative. The Capitol Renegade team has been making changes trying to solve recurring brake issues in recent months, but unfortunately the issue resurfaced early in Saturday’s A-main at Attica. Reinhardt fought an unwinnable battle as he slowly slid back through the field, eventually calling it a night, and taking a 23rd place finish.
Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will return to familiar turf, Port Royal Speedway, to race in the highly lucrative, 3-day, All Star sanctioned Tuscarora 50. The event spans September 9th-11th, paying $8,000, $10,000, and $54,000 to the winner respectively.
