Kyle Reinhardt came away from the Knoxville Nationals reenergized. He and his Capitol renegade team had recaptured some of their early season speed and had the beginnings of some new momentum.
The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions tour schedule resumed Friday night with three scheduled races across New York state. A total of only eighteen points races remained on Reinhardt’s sophomore All Star season schedule. He and the team were looking to continue building that momentum, finish the season strong, and erase the memories created by a couple months of struggle.
August 19: Outlaw Speedway / Dundee, NY
[26 cars, Qualifying 13th, Heat 5th (5), A-main 10th (13)]
Reinhardt was among 26 drivers signed in for the Friday night event at Outlaw Speedway, which utilized single group qualifying and three heats to set the field for the 30-lap main event.
The Neptune City, NJ native hit the track 21st for qualifying and turned in the 13th quickest lap in his Capitol Renegade / Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers / Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants / J&J Auto Racing No.91, missing the heat race inversion by one spot.
Competition is tight. Every tick of the clock matters. A lap 0.065 seconds quicker would have put Reinhardt on the front row for his heat race, but instead he rolled off inside row three for the 8-lap race . He held the 5th position throughout and transferred to the A-main.
Reinhardt started the 30-lap feature event from the 13th position. He went on to earn a hard-fought 10th place finish on the 4-tenths mile banked oval that sits just fifteen minutes north of Watkins Glen, NY.
“The car was pretty good tonight, but it got a little tight. Overall, I’m pleased. We’ve got things going the right direction.“, Reinhardt commented.
August 20: Utica-Rome Speedway / Vernon, NY
[30 cars, Qualifying 13th, Heat 5th (5), A-main 9th (15)]
Saturday the tour moved two hours northeast to the half-mile Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, NY and the car count increased to 30, but otherwise there was a lot of Deja vu for Reinhardt. The format was the same and his night started off once again with the 13th fastest lap overall and a 5th place finish in his heat race.
Reinhardt took the green from the 15th spot in Saturday night’s 30-lap A-main and went on the offensive immediately. By lap three, the mechanical engineer turned professional sprint car driver was running 8th and looking for more.
Reinhardt was challenging for 7th when a caution slowed the field with twelve laps remaining. The restart didn’t go his way and he lost track position, dropping to 10th. By the time the checkered flag fell, he had climbed back to 9th.
August 21 Weedsport Speedway / Weedsport, NY
[Cancelled – Rain]
Sunday’s NY swing finale at Weedsport Speedway was rained out, which was likely a disappointment to Reinhardt who has four top tens in four races at four different tracks in the state of New York in 2022.
“We’re definitely happy with our weekend, but our finish Saturday doesn’t reflect how good we really were. We were really good all night. I was racing Zeb (Wise) for 6th right before the caution. I lost the brakes on the last restart and that dropped us a few spots from where we should’ve finished.“, Reinhardt shared.
This week brings a very busy schedule for Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team. After returning from New York, they had two days to prepare for five races in five days. The Tezos All Star Circuit of Champions schedule will take teams on a swing covering much of Pennsylvania and a stop in Reinhardt’s home state of New Jersey.
The stops will include Bloomsburg Fair Raceway on Wednesday, Bridgeport Motorsports Park on Thursday, Williams Grove Speedway on Friday, Lincoln Speedway on Saturday and Bedford Speedway on Sunday.
