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.
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

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.
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.
72 races, 0 wins, 10 top 5’s, 20 top 10’s, 36 top 15’s
