Austin Berry Racing Energized by New Affiliation With VP Racing Fuels

Mifflin, PA – January 21, 2023

Austin Berry Racing will be energized, quite literally, by their new affiliation with VP Racing Fuels.  The company, a leader in the industry for nearly 50 years, will be the sole supplier of fuels, lubricants and coolants for the Central Pennsylvania super late model team in 2023.

 

World Leader in Fuel Technology

Founded in 1975, the quest of VP Racing Fuels since day one has been optimum horsepower.

Founder Steve Burns began his quest at the local tracks of Texas, where racers tried his fuel and liked the power gains. His first fuel was christened “C12™,” and from a single location with two employees in San Antonio, Texas, VP has grown to over 200 employees with five company owned and operated race fuel distribution points in Texas, Indiana, Georgia, Delaware and Tennessee, as well as a regional office in southern California. 

VP is now recognized by many as the world leader in race fuel technology, with a catalog of more than 80 fuel blends and a growing roster of VP-fueled champions across the entire spectrum of motorsports. The passion and dedication of VP’s development team to staying on the leading edge of technology is legendary. Most of VP’s employees are or have been racers in one form or another and are driven by the competitive will to win. Together, the VP team intends to solidify its position as the true World Leader in Race Fuel Technology for years to come.

VP Racing Fuels has been around a long time.  They established themselves as the top brand on the market and they have remained there for years.”, Berry said.

 

Performance

You may wonder why VP Racing Fuel is better, more premium, and an exceedingly popular choice over other fuels.

VP Racing Fuel is highly oxygenated in comparison to standard fuels. Fuels that are higher in oxygenation requires more fuel flow. In particular, VP requires 4 to 6 percent fuel flow, which means less fuel is needed to power the car.

VP Racing Fuel is also better vaporized. The higher oxygenation of the fuel ensures the fuel intakes more air. The air combined with the heat from the engine increases fuel burning and improves vaporization.  Fuels that are better-vaporized burn more efficiently than others, which means it needs less fuel to produce power. Using less fuel means it can be money-saving and much longer-lasting.

The high oxygenation process that occurs makes cars use less fuel yet creates more horsepower. Better vaporization and cooler engines ensure a car can run at its maximum capacity. VP Racing Fuel burns quicker than standard fuels, which gives the car much more power.

Cooler engines make cars safer and longer lasting. As VP Racing Fuel burns more efficiently, this requires less heat from the car. Less heat from the car reduces overheating and car faults. VP uses a coolant in their fuel, as well as other products, to combine with its ‘less fuel usage’ benefit to ensure maximized cooling to guarantee lower engine temperatures.

More Than Fuel

VP isn’t just a fuel producer.  They have a top line of oils, lubricants, coolants and other automotive fluids.

Their fuel makes the most horsepower.  That’s the number one reason we have always run their product.  When you combine that with their high quality lubricants and their leading edge coolant products, it was an easy decision who we wanted to align ourselves with.”, Berry commented.

What VP is doing for us this season is significant and we are going to do our part to make sure this partnership benefits them as much as it benefits us.”

Berry Excited About Partnership With GO Lithium

Team Set To Become Central PA Dealer for the Popular Brand

Mifflin, PA – January 12, 2023

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Mgmt

Austin Berry is excited about a new partnership he has formed with GO Lithium Batteries for the 2023 racing season.  GO Lithium is home to the Ultimate Circle Track and Drag Racing Lithium Battery!  Not only will Berry run the powerful, lightweight batteries in his No.86 super late model, he will be a new Central Pennsylvania dealer for the popular motorsports brand.

 

Built for Motorsports

Hand made in the USA, GO Lithium’s batteries are purpose built for racing. They provide the endurance and durability you can trust. With 1250 cranking amps, weighing only 9 lbs, and used by champions around the country, you can be positive GO Lithium is the correct choice for your team.

The GO Lithium battery has undergone 7 years of research, development, and testing, plus they went one step further and did Real World Dyno Testing.   Their 16V battery is incredibly powerful, recharges quickly, and weighs in at only 9 pounds!  With the lighter weight, the racer is able to reduce gross weight or move ballast where it will be most effective.

People don’t think of batteries as a difference-maker, but the GO Lithium batteries will help us perform better as a result of the weight reduction, not to mention the reliable power.”, Berry commented.

Prismatic cells are more durable and are able to store more power in a smaller area, and that is the technology GO Lithium leveraged to create the only battery on the market using the unique approach. 

 

Built for Safety

GO Lithium’s Battery is safe and was specifically designed for racing applications.  To test, a Lithium cell is subjected to a puncture test in which a steel rod is driven through the cell.  GO Lithium Cells passed this test without any explosion or fire.  This can be an issue with other types of lithium batteries.

The Ultralight Lithium Battery from GO Lithium is also internally balanced, which ensures that the battery discharges and charges its prismatic cells equally. Cell balancing on the battery, which is expensive and thus many manufacturers choose not to do it, increases the lifespan of the product dramatically.

 

Brand Dealer

“This new partnership we have formed together gives us the opportunity to progress and continue moving our program forward.  I’m excited about being able to promote GO Lithium’s product and further our brand as a benefit of the partnership.“, Berry shared.

“I’m really looking forward to being a representative for and dealer of the GO Lithium brand.  It’s a great company because at the core of it all, they are racers and fans with a passion for the sport, just like us.

Teams looking for more information or to inquire about purchasing GO Lithium products should contact Austin Berry Racing through any of their social media outlets or at ABRacing86@gmail.com.

Zach Newlin Eyeing Return to 410 Sprint Car Ranks in 2023

Zach Daddy Will Also Continue to Pilot the Mansberger Motorsports No.21m 358 Sprint Car

Millerstown, PA – December 22, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Ashlee Book

Following seven highly successful seasons in the 305 sprint car ranks, Zach Newlin moved into the 358 sprint car ranks in 2020.  He found victory lane at Williams Grove Speedway in that rookie season in his family owned Newlin Racing 11z.

 

The resume Newlin was building turned heads and, over the course of the past two and a half seasons, brought a few opportunities to fill the seat of a few 410 sprint cars.  While the Millerstown, PA resident greatly appreciated those opportunities, none of them blossomed into a long term situation.

 

Newlin had a few notable highlights in his limited 410 sprint car races, including qualifying for his first World of Outlaws A-main in October of 2021, and back-t0-back hard charger awards at Port Royal Speedway’s Labor Day Classic in 2020 and 2021.

 

Meanwhile, Newlin also kept one foot in the door of the 358 division, piloting the Mansberger Motorsports 21m in Central Pennsylvania.  He will continue wheeling that car in 2023, primarily at Williams Grove Speedway, however the team will likely look to expand their schedule a little over recent years.

 

Before the 2022 season had even wrapped up, Newlin had started shaping plans to resurrect his own familiar 11z, but this time with 410 cubic inch power plant under the hood.  Fans will definitely remember the unique ‘Zach Daddy’ green that Newlin made so recognizable in the 305 sprint car division, then in the 358 division as well.  While the final design is not in place yet, the green will make it’s return in 2023.

 

Newlin got started by purchasing a used engine that was in need of a rebuild.  It wasn’t ideal, but it was within his budget.  Small teams like Newlin’s need to keep costs down and spread their expenses out to keep going.

 

Invitations to get behind the wheel of someone’s 410 sprint car are not plentiful to say the least, plus having control of one’s own destiny to allow time to hone skills and grow knowledge is a positive of putting together your own deal.

 

Ever since we decided we were going down this path, we have been chipping away at trying to get the things we need.  We didn’t have much of anything remaining from the 2020 car that we could use.  We knew it wouldn’t be easy with limited funds and it might even take us a year, but we felt it was our best option…maybe our only option…if we wanted to continue racing 410’s.  I definitely didn’t want to give up on that goal.“, Newlin shared.

 

Newlin’s goal for the upcoming season is realistic.  He wants to have enough resources to get to the track at least a dozen times, so the team can make laps and learn.  The engine rebuild is progressing slowly but should be ready in time to meet Newlin’s April goal.  When his season does start, he will have one car, one engine and he won’t have a lot of spare parts, so the team will race smart to make sure they can keep racing and improving.

 

We’re making some progress, but we still have a long way to go.  I’m hoping to have the bare minimum of what I need to get to the track by the end of April.  Bringing a partner into our team would help move things along a little faster and help us be more prepared.”, Newlin said.

 

While his new 410 team may not find victory lane right away, Newlin has a lot to offer potential marketing partners.  He has amassed a sizeable and very supportive following over his years behind the wheel, and his future in the sport holds a lot of promising potential.

Kyle Reinhardt Rebuilding in 2023, Splits With McCall

Abbottstown, PA – December 21, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Brent Smith Photography

When the 2023 season opens for Kyle Reinhardt, some things will seem familiar, but the new year will bring changes.

 

The biggest change:  Jeff McCall and Reinhardt split a few weeks ago. The team spent the past two seasons traveling with the All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) and supplemented their schedule with other races when time allowed, amassing over seventy events entered each season.

 

The combination had moderate success, including Reinhardt’s first ASCoC victory and a pair of eighth place finishes in the ASCoC Championship point standings. More importantly, they were accumulating resources and building the depth of their program. McCall’s departure is on good terms but nonetheless it sets Reinhardt’s program back a few steps.

 

“We were slowly building something solid the last couple seasons and we had things going the right direction the last couple months of this past season, but now we will need to restart the building process in certain ways,” Reinhardt commented.

 

“Jeff’s departure means we will start 2023 without some of the parts, engines, and key components that I have been able to rely on the last two years.”  He will not have any full time employees either.

 

On the familiar side of things, Capitol Renegade, who has been with Reinhardt since 2017, will remain a key partner.

 

“On a positive note, we will start the year on the same car and shock package we were running at the end of 2022.  We were running well on that combination, so we will have that to build on.“, Reinhardt shared.

 

The schedule will look a little different for Reinhardt in 2023. It will primarily consist of races in Pennsylvania, along with some travel for World of Outlaw, All Star and High Limit series events when possible. Exactly which events, and the total number of events, the team enters will be dependent on securing additional funding.

 

Reinhardt is open to a partnership that will enable him to rebuild the depth of his team, as well as enable him to run all the events on his tentative schedule.

 

“I am open to conversations about help, funding, or opportunities. I was hoping to kick off the season in Georgia with the All Stars, but given the current crew help situation and resources available, we will probably delay the start of our season to early March.,” Reinhardt said.

Kyle Reinhardt Captures Career Best World Finals Finish on Opening Night; Misses Field on Final Night

Concord, NC – November 11, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Apex Media

Kyle Reinhardt unloaded his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91 at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC last week with his team’s performance trending in the right direction.  

 

That trend, combined with two A-main appearances in the 2021 edition of the World Finals, had the Capitol Renegade team feeling optimistic about their chances to finish out the 2022 season on a positive note.

  

November 2:  World Finals / The Dirt Track at Charlotte / Concord, NC  [52 cars, Qualifying 9th Flight A, Heat 6th (5), B-main 2nd (3), A-main 13th (22)]

 

Opening night brought 52 teams to compete in the 4-day World of Outlaws sanctioned event.  This year’s scheduled called for the sprint car teams to compete on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.  

 

Teams would compete in full shows on Wednesday and Friday, then heat races for Saturday’s finale would be lined up by points accumulated during the previous two races.

 

Wednesday and Friday’s format info

 
Reinhardt’s night got off to a good start when he registered the 9th quickest lap of the 26 cars to go under the clock in Flight A qualifying.  The effort provided him with the inside row three starting spot in heat number one.
 
With the top five finishers from the 8-lap race transferring directly to the Wednesday night A-main, Reinhardt was in position to capitalize.  That said, the spot would still need to be earned, especially given the stout field on hand.
 
Tyler Courtney was able to win the 3rd row battle for the 5th spot on the opening lap and Reinhardt wasn’t able to wrestle it away.  He settled for a 6th place finish, which relegated him to the B-main for his final shot to make the night’s finale.
 
From his 3rd starting spot in the B-main, Reinhardt needed to record a top four finish to transfer to the main event.  From the drop of the green on the 12-lap race, he made it clear he was going to control his own destiny.
 
Reinhardt grabbed the lead by using the high side on the opening lap and went on to build a comfortable lead for most of the race.  As the race reached the closing laps, Brent Marks powered his way into the runner up position and began to put pressure on the leader.
 
Strategy was on display as Reinhardt took the low line away from Marks as the pair sailed into turn three with just over two laps remaining.  
 
Reinhardt held the lead for another lap, then Marks edged in front briefly before the Neptune City, NJ native drove back under him going into turn three on the final lap.  Marks turned under Reinhardt off turn four and beat the Capitol Renegade No.91 to the line by 0.375 seconds.  It was an exciting few laps, but in the end all that mattered was Reinhardt was in the show.
 
From his 22nd starting spot in the 30-lap A-main, Reinhardt appeared to struggle in the early going.  He dropped as far as 26th before finding a rhythm and some room to race.  The forward progress started on lap seven.  
 
Reinhardt reached the 19th spot on lap thirteen, but it took another ten laps before the car and the track would really come to him.  On lap twenty three he turned his fastest lap of the race.  Over the final five laps, he rolled the bottom with great success, climbing from 18th all the way to 13th at the checkered flag.
 
The finish was a career best for Reinhardt at the World Finals, improving on his 2021 result by a few spots.
 
November 4:  World Finals / The Dirt Track at Charlotte / Concord, NC  [52 cars, Qualifying 10th Flight B, Heat 10th (5), C-main 3rd (4)]

 

Friday’s second chance to accumulate points started off very similar to Wednesday for Reinhardt, who registered the 10th quickest lap of the 26 drivers to hit the track in Flight B.  Once again, he would take the green for his heat race from the 5th starting spot, needing only to remain in the top five to transfer to the main event.

 

The opening lap of heat number four is where Reinhardt’s week took a turn the wrong direction.  A bunched up start led to a four wide situation in turn one, forcing his No.91 above the cushion.  He managed to avoid contact but rolled to a stop, bringing out the caution.

 

Reinhardt was able to restart and join the rear of the field, but it would be tough to recover the track position in a short eight laps.  He finished a distant 10th, dropping him into the C-main and leaving him with slim odds of making his way to the A-main.

 

Reinhardt would need to finish first or second in the 10-lap C-main to advance to the B-main.  From his starting spot outside row two, he claimed the 3rd position on the opening lap.  He was unable to close the gap enough on runner up Eric Riggins to mount a serious challenge.

 

Reinhardt’s night ended much earlier than expected with the 3rd place C-main finish.  The real price of the disappointing night was a low point total to add to his solid first night, which would make Saturday night’s main event slightly more difficult to reach.

 

November 5:  World Finals / The Dirt Track at Charlotte / Concord, NC  [52 cars, Heat 7th (7), B-main 8th (9)]

 

Saturday’s program consisted of four 11-car heat races.  The top ten starters were set heads-up by points from the first two night, and they were joined by a top four finisher from the non-qualifier’s race that opened the night.  The top five finishers from each heat race would move on to the A-main, and the remaining teams would compete in a B-main for the final four starting spots.

 

The ripple effect of Friday’s heat race troubles was clear.  Reinhardt’s two day point total placed him 7th in heat number four.  He took 6th on lap two with a slide job on Kraig Kinser and set his sights on the final transfer spot.  At the halfway point, Kinser forced his way back around the No.91 off turn four.  Reinhardt couldn’t mount another challenge and settled for a 7th place finish.

 

The B-main would be an uphill climb for Reinhardt, needing to reach the top four in twelve short laps from his 9th starting spot to make the show.  He gave it everything he had, climbing has high as 7th by the time the caution flag appeared with three laps complete.

 

The ensuing restart didn’t go Reinhardt’s way.  He lost the track position he had gained, slipping back to 9th again.  In the closing laps he raced his way back into 8th but that’s where the week, and season, came to an end.

 

We had decent speed this week.  We weren’t great but things just didn’t go our way Friday and we got behind.  I want to give a shout out to Cheerwine, Carolina Beverage Corp and Arthur Carver IV for coming on board this week to help us out at the World Finals.  I also want to say thank you to Capitol Renegade, Champion Hi-Tech Lubricant’s, Henry’s Wrecker Service and all our other partners who have supported us all season.“, Reinhardt commented.

 

Overall our season wasn’t up to our expectations, but with the speed we found the past month we feel better going into the offseason.  We feel like we have something to build on for 2023.”

Reinhardt Tallies Runner Up and 5th Place Finishes in Solid Weekend at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Home State of NJ

2022 Season Will Conclude at World Finals in Charlotte, NC This Week

Swedesboro, NJ – November 2, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Kyle Reinhardt has definitely found speed again.

 

Coming into a late October two-race weekend in his home state of New Jersey, his month already included three top five finishes at three different tracks, one of those on the podium.

 

‘Sprinttoberfest’ at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, NJ provided Reinhardt with two more shots in October to continue building momentum before heading south to compete at the World Finals in Charlotte, NC in early November. 

 

He capitalized on both opportunities.

  

October 29:  Sprintoberfest / Bridgeport Motorsports Park / Swedesboro, NJ  [25 cars, Qualifying 1st Group 1, Heat 4th (3), Dash 5th (5) A-main 5th (5)]

 

Reinhardt has expressed his love of the new 4-tenths mile configuration at Bridgeport ever since it opened a few years ago.  He has been fast on the high-banked surface, including a runner-up finish in the ‘Invasion of the Posse’ event back in April of this year in his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91.

 

Bridgeport Motorsports Park Sprintoberfest Format Details

 

Reinhardt’s draw placed him in group one.  He promptly laid down a lap of 12.786, quickest in the group, which put him inside row two to start heat number one and guaranteed him a spot in the dash redraw.

 

The Neptune City, NJ native finished 4th in his 8-lap heat race, drew the #5 starting spot for the dash, and finished in the same position in the 5-lap event.

 

Reinhardt started 5th in the 25-lap A-main and began to make moves early on.  He claimed the 4th spot at the start and held onto it through the first six laps before wrestling the 3rd spot away from Sye Lynch on lap seven.  Lynch battled back a lap later and took the podium spot back from Reinhardt.

 

Meanwhile, Gio Scelzi was closing in to become part of the battle.  He worked his way past Reinhardt to take 4th on lap ten, dropping the Capitol Renegade No.91 to 5th, where he would finish the event 

 

October 30:  Sprintoberfest / Bridgeport Motorsports Park / Swedesboro, NJ  [26 cars, Qualifying 1st Group 3, Heat 4th (3), Dash 6th (5), A-main 2nd (6)]

 

Sunday’s field grew by one to 26 cars, but the format remained the same as Saturday.

 

Sunday’s draw put Reinhardt in group three, but the result was no different.  Once again, he was quickest in his group, this time with a lap of 12.687.  The 8-lap heat race and redraw were like Deja vu as well, as Reinhardt started 3rd and finished 4th in the heat, then drew the 5th starting spot for the dash.

 

Reinhardt finished 6th in the dash, putting him outside row three to start the 40-lap finale.  Once again he got right to work, moving forward into the 5th spot on the opening lap.  He raced 5th for the majority of the first half of the race, slipping to 6th only briefly in the early going.

 

On lap twenty three, Reinhardt worked his way into the 4th spot, then found himself in the runner up spot with Gio Scelzi in front and Danny Dietrich on his heels with fifteen laps remaining.  

 

With Devin Borden and Lance Dewease also in the top five, there was no room for error during the final dozen circuits.  Reinhardt was up to the challenge and came home with the runner up finish, 1.288 seconds behind Scelzi. Dewease, Borden and Dietrich rounded out the top five.

 

It was great to run up front both nights in front of a lot of family and friends.  I’m happy about the consistent speed we have found lately.  We’re running well, but we still have a little work to do to get the car into victory lane again.  Hopefully we can keep that going in Charlotte next week to finish out our season.“, Reinhardt commented.

 

Up Next

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will wrap up their 2022 season with a trip to the World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  The team will compete in the World of Outlaws sanctioned event on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, November 2nd, 4th and 5th.

 

In 2021, Reinhardt made the A-main on both Friday and Saturday night at Charlotte, recording finishes of 14th and 20th.  This week he will look to improve on last year’s successful trip.

 

The events will be broadcast on DirtVision.com for those who subscribe to the streaming service.

Kyle Reinhardt Posts Top Five Finish at BAPS Motor Speedway

Home State Racing at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in NJ on Tap This Weekend

Mechanicsburg, PA – October 28, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Jeremy Zarfos Photography

Kyle Reinhardt wrapped up his second All Star Circuit of Champions season two weeks ago with a podium finish to solidify an 8th place finish in the series’ points.  Following a weekend off for himself and the team, the Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91 was back in action twice this past weekend.

 

Friday night Reinhardt put a successful run in the books at BAPS Motor Speedway, then headed to Williams Grove Speedway on Saturday night for the rescheduled $75,000-to-win Champion Racing Oil National Open, sanctioned by the World of Outlaws.

 

October 21:  The Night Before / BAPS Motor Speedway / York Haven, PA  [27 cars, Qualifying 5th, Heat 5th (5), A-main5th (15)]

 

Originally scheduled to race 410 sprint cars on Saturday night, BAPS Motor Speedway moved their event to Friday night and dubbed it ‘The Night Before’, in reference to the National Open that had been rescheduled to the October 22nd date as the result of an October 1st rainout.

 

The 27 cars on hand were split into three groups for qualifying and heat races to set the field for the 30-lap main event.  In some very close competition under the clock, Reinhardt timed 5th quick in group 3, just 0.005 seconds behind 4th fastest Dylan Norris.

 

Reinhardt started and finished 5th in an uneventful 10-lap heat race number three, which put him 15th on the starting grid for the $6,000-to-win A-main.

 

The Neptune City, NJ native wasted no time charging inside the top ten by lap five, then chipped away to reach 8th by the halfway point.  Reinhardt was still holding down the 8th spot with four laps to go.

 

Things got wild on a restart with three laps remaining.  Contact between two cars near the front of the field caused a multi-car incident which nearly collected Reinhardt.  After initial impact caused the front end of his No.91 to point skyward, he was somehow able to gather it up, keep it out of the wall, and skirt the melee on the high side.

 

Reinhardt restarted 6th following the incident and was able to grab 5th to record the top five finish.

 

October 22:  National Open / Williams Grove Speedway / Mechanicsburg, PA  [44 cars, Qualifying 11th in Group B, Heat 5th (6), B-main 2nd (6)]

 

The following night, fans and teams finally gathered at Williams Grove Speedway after a three week wait for night number two of the lucrative National Open.

 

The World of Outlaw sanctioned event used two qualifying flights and four heat races, followed by a C-main and B-main, to set the field for the $75,000-to-win event.

 

Reinhardt registered the 11th best lap in Group B qualifying, lining him up 6th in heat number three.  The top five finishers would transfer directly to the night’s finale.

 

After jumping into the 5th and final transfer spot on the opening lap, Logan Schuchart slipped by off turn two a lap later, dropping Reinhardt to 6th.  One lap later, Kyle charged under Schuchart’s No.1s as the pair dove into turn three1.  Reinhardt powered off turn four with the advantage, taking back the transfer spot.

 

A restart at the halfway point didn’t work in Reinhardt’s favor.  Schuchart was able to wrestle the spot away again.  Reinhardt finished 6th, relegating the Capitol Renegade team to the B-main for a final shot at making the show.

 

Reinhardt started on the outside of the front row in the 12-lap B-main and needed to secure a top four finish to put himself in the 40-lap A-main.  Dylan Norris slipped by on the opening lap, dropping Reinhardt to 3rd.

 

A lap two caution and the ensuing double-file restart cost Reinhardt another spot when Matt Campbell got by.  A hard-charging Corey Eliason then began to pressure Reinhardt for the final transfer spot.  Ultimately both Eliason and Dylan Cisney found their way past the Capitol Renegade No.91, putting an end to Reinhardt’s night with a 6th place finish.

 

I’m happy with our performance at BAPS (Motor Speedway).  We kept it on track to a top five.  We have racked up several of those the last few weeks, so we’ve got things going the right direction.“, Reinhardt commented.  “A few slip ups at The Grove cost us a starting spot.

 

I’m excited for a weekend of 410 racing in NJ.  It’s always good to get back home where we see a lot of family and friends.

 

Up Next

 

The Capitol Renegade team will make the tow to Reinhardt’s home state of NJ to compete at Bridgeport Speedway in their ‘Sprinttoberfest’ event on Saturday and Sunday, October 29-30 in the 410 sprint division.

Hartlaub Continues Steady Top Performances in October

Attention Quickly Turns to 2023 Preparation

Abbottstown, PA – October 21, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Jeremy Zarfos Photography

Kody Hartlaub has had one of the most consistent seasons a driver and team could ask for during the 2022 season in the 358 sprint car division in Central Pennsylvania.

 

That doesn’t mean anything came easy.  There have been plenty of nights that were an uphill climb.  The East Berlin, PA driver and his team never quit though, no matter the situation.  They battled to the end each night, passed a ton of cars over the course of the season, and as a result put together an impressive season statistically.

 

When the final races of the season were in the books, Hartlaub had logged 23 starts and had never finished outside the top 15.  Of those, 19 were top 10’s and 11 were top 5’s.  Stats like that are not easy to achieve racing weekly at Lincoln Speedway where the average field is 30 cars.

 

October 8:  Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

     [37 cars, Heat 1st (1), A-main 4th (7)]

 

The Brewer Home Improvements / Moose Blocks / Smith Titanium / SRR Engines / Siegel Racing / T and N Solutions / Jason Emlet Iron Valley Real Estate / Bigham Appraisals / Pretzel Boy / HAAS Shocks / C.H. Folk & Son Feeds / Chop Designs / Herr Electric, Hartlaub Racing No.2 was part of a deep, 37-car field that signed in for action at Lincoln Speedway on October 8th.

 

The large field set up five 8-lap heat races for the 358 sprint cars, with lineups set by pill draw.  The top four finishers would transfer to the A-main, with the top two making the handicap.  To qualify for the handicap, drivers need to have established a points average by participating in at least one previous race at the track this season.

 

Hartlaub had a favorable pill draw, something that had not happened much this season.  He started from the pole of the fifth and final heat race and never looked back, taking the win by nearly 3.5 seconds.

 

The handicap format put Hartlaub 7th on the starting grid for the 20-lap A-main.  The first half of the feature event did not go according to plan, as he dropped back into the thick of a battle for 8th and 9th.  

 

Once again, Hartlaub found his rhythm and began to march forward in the second half of the race.  He surged into 6th with just three laps remaining and climbed to 4th by the time the checkered flag fell on the event.

 

October 15:  Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

     [30 cars, Heat 4th (1), A-main 6th (13)]

 

The season finale for the 358 sprint cars at Lincoln Speedway drew yet another 30-car field, setting up four 8-lap heat races.  The top five finishers from each would transfer directly to the A-main, with the top two handicapped to set the first four rows of the feature event.

 

Hartlaub’s pill draw luck continued, this time landing him on the pole of the first heat.  Things didn’t go as well as the week before though.  The start was a little ragged, leaving Hartlaub off the throttle just long enough to cost him a couple spots.  Combine that with a car that was a bit too tight, and you get a 4th place finish.

 

Having missed his opportunity to start inside first four rows via the handicap, Hartlaub had his work cut out for him from the 13th starting spot in the 20-lap A-main.

 

Hartlaub wasted no time from the drop of the green, picking off competitors lap by lap and charging to 6th by lap sixteen.  He was on the verge of advancing into the top five when a caution appeared with three laps remaining.  

 

Restarts are typically a good opportunity for good cars to make up track position and make moves.  It didn’t work out that way for Hartlaub on this night.  When the race resumed, his tires didn’t seem to ‘fire’ and he was simply holding his ground, which he did, crossing the line 6th to wrap up the season.

 

After putting myself behind the 8-ball early, I was glad to go forward in the A-Main and seal off 2nd in the championship.“, Hartlaub commented.

 

“Proud of my entire team, family, and sponsors for everything we have accomplished this year. Week in and week out we were one of the most consistent finishers.  Bummed I couldn’t pick up a win for my guys this year, but that just makes us push and drive harder over the off season for next year.”

 

Achievements

 

As Hartlaub alluded to, Saturday night’s finish solidified a 2nd place finish in Lincoln Speedway’s Championship Point standings for the 2022 season, a significant accomplishment for the young driver.  In 2018 Hartlaub logged what was almost a full season, but then sat on the sidelines in 2019 and raced a very sparse schedule in 2020.  Finally, in 2021, everything fell into place for the Littlestown, PA native to run a full season.  

 

Hartlaub soaked up a lot of knowledge in 2021 and he put it to use in 2022.  He adds the 2nd place at Lincoln Speedway to a list of achievements for the season.  He also earned the Williams Grove Speedway 358 sprint car Rookie of the Year award, finished 2nd in the 358 Summer Series points, and finished 5th in the season championship point standings at Williams Grove Speedway.

 

Up Next

 

2023 preparations are already in full swing for Kody Hartlaub Racing.  Efforts are ongoing to build depth in the program to position Kody to compete for wins and championships.  Be sure to follow Addicted2DirtPR on social media, as well as Kody Hartlaub Racing, for a look ahead at next season’s plans.  More details will be released this winter.

Reinhardt On the Podium at Fremont to Close Out 2022 All Star Season

Three Race Weekend Also Included Top 5 Finish at Lincoln Speedway

Fremont, OH – October 12, 2022

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Chad Warner Photography

Coming off a week that included two rainouts and a subpar National Open prelim night, Kyle Reinhardt was more than ready to strap back into the seat of his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91 and get back to work.

 

In recent weeks the Capitol Renegade team had been showing glimpses of their old speed again, and you can’t get faster sitting at the shop.  Three opportunities were on the docket last week for Reinhardt.  First up was the Brian Montieth Classic, just a mile or so down the road from the team’s shop at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, PA.

 

October 6:  Brian Montieth Classic / Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA [36 cars, Qualifying 12th, Heat 1st (2), A-main 5th (4)]

 

Thursday night’s event used a single group qualifying format for the 36 cars on hand.  Heat lineups would be set by inverting the top four, with the balance of the lineup heads up by time.  The top five finishers from each of four heats would transfer to the A-main, with the top two making the redraw.  If the quick timer in the race could win, only the winner would be in the redraw.

 

Reinhardt was 27th in line but clocked in 12th quickest in the field, which put him outside the front row for the start of the fourth heat.  He blasted to the lead at the drop of the green, survived a late restart and led all 10 laps, enroute to a 1.5 second victory over Chad Trout.

 

The redraw produced the number four pill for Reinhardt, placing him outside the second row for the 35-lap A-main.  With Gio Scelzi and Brian Brown leading the field to the green, Reinhardt beat third-starting Dylan Norris to the low side of turn one and claimed 3rd on the opening lap.

 

The low side was good to Reinhardt for the first five laps, but on lap six, he moved to the high side as Justin Peck closed on his rear bumper.  Reinhardt closed the gap on second place Brian Brown and the trio waged an intense battle until the caution appeared with seven laps complete.

 

Reinhardt blasted under Brown entering turn one on the restart and immediately put distance between himself and the Missouri driver.  One lap later, the caution appeared yet again.

 

On the ensuing restart, Reinhardt held a firm grasp on the runner up spot, again pulling away from Brown by two seconds.  Scelzi was even better, putting several car lengths between himself and Reinhardt’s No.91.

 

Reinhardt began to close on Scelzi when he caught lapped traffic with twenty laps remaining, but he could not quite get close enough to challenge for the lead.  While this was going on at the front, Buddy Kofoid moved into third, with Justin Peck now fourth and Brown fifth.

 

Kofoid wrestled the spot away from Reinhardt on lap 25 and one lap later Peck got by as well, dropping Reinhardt from 2nd to 4th in the span of two laps.  

 

Reinhardt regrouped and set his sights on Peck.  Meanwhile, Danny Dietrich had moved into 5th just before the yellow lights flashed on with two laps remaining.  On the ensuing restart, Reinhardt seemed to be set to finish out the night in 4th until the final corner.  Dietrich turned under the Capitol Renegade 91 and drag raced Reinhardt to the line, nipping him by 0.042 seconds.

 

Despite some frustration with himself for giving up 4th in the run through the final corner coming to the line, Reinhardt was still happy with his team’s effort and results.  He put it in very simple terms after the race.

 

Solid night.  We needed that.

 

October 7:  Jim Ford Classic – Night 1 / Fremont Speedway / Fremont, OH [38 cars, Qualifying 7th in Group C, Heat 5th (7), A-main 12th (18)]

 

The final weekend of the season for the Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions (ASCoC) brought the series to Fremont, Ohio for the two-day Jim Ford Classic.  Night one produced a roster of 38 teams to chase the $6,000 winner’s share.

 

Reinhardt was the 8th of nine drivers in Group C to hit the track for qualifying.  He only managed the 7th best lap in the group, creating a bit of a hill for the Capitol Renegade team to climb.

 

Starting 7th in the third of four heats, Reinhardt needed to reach the top five to transfer directly to the A-main and avoid racing the B-main to get in.  The 8-lap qualifying race got off on the wrong foot when he slipped to 8th, but Reinhardt soon found his rhythm.  By lap five he had worked his way to 6th and was able to make the pass for 5th on lap seven, putting himself into the night’s finale.

 

Reinhardt started the 35-lap A-main in the 18th position and patiently waited for the traffic around him to sort itself out over the first five laps.  From there, he used a steady effort to chip his way toward the front, making his way into the top fifteen on lap nine.  

 

Reinhardt’s machine continued to get quicker as the fuel load burned off.  On the restart following a lap twenty caution, he surged forward into the 13th spot.  As the race reached its final five circuits, he moved up another position.  The late charge ended just 8-tenths of a second out of a top ten finish with Reinhardt in 12th.

 

October 8:  Jim Ford Classic – Night 2 / Fremont Speedway / Fremont, OH [39 cars, Qualifying 1st in Group 2, Heat 3rd (4), A-main 3rd (6)]

 

The $10,000 to win finale of the Jim Ford Classic and the 2022 ASCoC season drew a field of 39 cars, once again putting the four qualifying group, four heat format into action.

 

Reinhardt rolled out 7th in Group B for his turn under the clock and promptly showed the resurgence of his team’s speed as he laid down the fastest lap in the group.

 

Only needing to transfer by finishing in the top five of his heat race, Reinhardt ran hard from his starting spot outside row two in his 8-lap heat race.  He brought home a third place finish and along with it, a spot in the dash redraw.

 

Reinhardt drew the 6th starting spot for the 6-lap dash.  On the opening lap he moved up one spot but eventually finished 6th, putting his Capitol Renegade No.91 on the outside of row three for the 30-lap Jim Ford Classic main event.

 

On lap two, Reinhardt moved into the fifth position.  He held that ground, executing a steady performance, for the next twenty three laps and appeared set to come home with a nice top five finish.

 

Reinhardt wasn’t done yet though.

 

A caution slowed the field with four laps remaining and Reinhardt still running 5th.  On the restart, he drove to the inside of Zeb Wise in turn one and took the 4th position away.

 

Two laps later the yellow lights flashed on yet again, forcing a restart for a green-white-checkered finish.  On this restart, Cole Macedo was Reinhardt’s victim when the former professional engineer turned full time racer slipped underneath the No.18 entering turn one.

 

Reinhardt held on to 3rd for the remaining lap and a half, closing out the touring series’ portion of his season with his first ASCoC podium of the year and first ASCoC top five since August 24th at Bloomsburg Fair Raceway in Pennsylvania.

 

I was trying to save my tire.  I could tell early on the track was probably going to take rubber and tires would be important at the end.  It’s tough to hold back but it paid off in the end.“, Reinhardt shared.

 

We had a solid finish to our All Star season tonight.  It’s been a challenging year, but we’ve finally been finding our speed again lately, so hopefully we can continue that in our remaining races and go into the offseason with something positive to build on.  I want to say thank you to all of our partners and everyone involved with our team that got our 91 car up and down the road all season.”

 

Up Next

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will take the coming weekend off, then will return on Friday, October 21st at BAPS Motor Speedway for their “The Night Before” event.  The following night, the Neptune City, NJ native will roll back into Williams Grove Speedway for the rescheduled finale of the 60th Annual National Open.

Newlin Logs Top 10 at Lincoln Speedway After Last Minute Schedule Addition

Mansberger Motorsports Team Not Done Yet in 2022

Abbottstown, PA – October 10, 2022

After originally indicating their season was done, Zach Newlin and the Mansberger Motorsports team decided to extend their season with a trip to Lincoln Speedway on Saturday night, October 8th.

 

The team missed a few planned races earlier in the season due to weather and other personal reasons, so the equipment still had some laps left in it and the team wasn’t quite ready to call it a year.  

 

October 8:  Lincoln Speedway / Abbottstown, PA

     [37 cars, Heat 2nd (3), A-main 10th (10)]

 

A deep field of 37 cars signed in to compete, setting up five 8-lap heat races for the 358 sprint cars.  The top four finishers would transfer to the A-main, with the top two making the handicap.  To qualify for the handicap, drivers need to have established a points average by participating in at least one previous race at the track this season.

 

Heat race lineups were set by a pill draw.  Zach Newlin was slated to start inside row two in the first heat race of the evening but took the green flag from the outside of the front row after one of the front row starters opted to drop to the rear of the field.

 

At the drop of the green, Dylan Norris got out in front to grab the early lead.  Newlin settled into the second spot and held the position for the duration of the event.  Despite finishing 2nd, Newlin did not qualify for the redraw since he had not competed at Lincoln Speedway during the 2022 season.  

 

Newlin lined up 10th for the 20-lap A-main, just behind the handicapped starters.  The feature event was slowed multiple times by cautions, bunching the field and providing opportunities to make moves.  The Millerstown, PA native fought hard throughout the event, moving just inside the top ten at times, then slipping just outside for a few laps.

 

Ultimately Newlin came home with a 10th place finish, a respectable result on the team’s first trip to the Abbottstown, PA oval, especially against the field of cars assembled Saturday night.

 

Up Next

 

The team plans to return to Lincoln Speedway Saturday night, October 15th to extend their season yet one more night and hopefully end their up and down season on a high note.
