Kyle Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team had enjoyed a two and a half week break from the grind on the road following the completion of the first 31 points races of the All Star Circuit of Champions season, which wrapped up with the grueling 10-day Ohio Speedweek in mid-June.
The break was a busy one, regrouping, restocking, making repairs and preparing for the final 26-race homestretch of the season.
July 6: Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup, Lernerville Speedway / Sarver, PA
[36 cars, Qualifying 7th Group C, Heat 5th (7), A-main 21st (19)]
The prestigious Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup at Lernerville Speedway in western Pennsylvania, offering a $25,000 payday to the winner, was the scene for the kickoff of the second half of the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions schedule.
Reinhardt’s night got off to a tough start when he clocked in at 7th quickest in Group C. Following qualifying for the 36 cars on hand, four 8-lap heats were slated, with the top five finishers from each advancing to the A-main.
The Neptune City, NJ native was able to start digging out of the early hole by moving forward from his 7th starting spot in the heat to finish 5th and capture the final transfer position.
Reinhardt wasn’t able to complete the recovery in the 30-lap feature event. After starting 19th, on lap six he suffered a right rear flat on his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91. He was one of three drivers who experienced the same fate when debris on the speedway cut multiple tires.
Reinhardt rejoined the field but was unable to move forward and ultimately recorded a 21st place finish.
July 8: Ransomville Speedway / Ransomville, NY
[20 cars, Qualifying 13th, Heat 5th (5), A-main 7th (13)]
Teams used a day off to make the four hour trek north to Ransomville Speedway in NY, north of Buffalo. Twenty teams signed in to compete at the half-mile facility situated just twenty minutes from Niagara Falls.
Kyle Reinhardt was aiming to get his team’s night off to a stronger start. A late slot in the qualifying order resulted in the 13th quickest lap overall and a 5th place starting spot in the first of three 8-lap heat races.
Reinhardt held his ground but wasn’t able to advance in the heat race. His 5th place finish translated to a starting spot inside row seven in the 30-lap A-main. During the first dozen laps of the feature, once again he was unable to push forward in the running order.
Following a lap twelve caution, the car and the surface came to Reinhardt. On the restart he started his steady march forward, cracking the top ten at the halfway point. From there on, Reinhardt cleared a competitor every few laps, reaching 7th on the final lap to claim his eighth top ten of the season.
“We struggled with some brake issues at Lernerville Wednesday and again early tonight, but we finally resolved the problem and got better for the feature. We weren’t great tonight, but we never quit and were able to make a decent night out of it.”, Reinhardt commented.
July 9: Stateline Speedway / Busti, NY
[21 cars, Qualifying 15th, Heat 4th (5), A-main 10th (13)]
The final night of the brief NY swing for the All Stars brought 21 teams to the Pennsylvania border to race at the 1/3-mile Stateline Speedway in Busti, NY. It was a different night and a different track, but it was a similar outcome for the Capitol Renegade No.91 team.
Reinhardt recorded the 15th best lap overall in qualifying, then advanced one spot to finish 4th in his heat race. He went on to convert his 13th starting spot in the 30-lap main event to a 10th place finish, his second top-10 in as many days.
“We didn’t qualify well this weekend and that obviously is a big part of this deal. We need to get better early in the night and give ourselves a chance to make dashes. We will keep digging.“, Reinhardt said with both frustration and determination apparent in his voice.
“I want to thank Wayne and Capitol Renegade for everything they do for us, and of course Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants, J&J Auto Racing, Henry’s Wrecker, and everyone who supports us. It sounds cliche but we truly couldn’t do this without all of them. We really appreciate everything they do to help us.“
Kyle and the Capitol Renegade team will be off this weekend, then will return to action on July 22nd and 23rd with the All Stars for a 2-day show at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri.
