The weather in Central Pennsylvania wasn’t the only thing that was too hot during PA Speedweek. Kyle Reinhardt battled engine overheating issues two nights in a row before cutting his week short to avoid hurting the engine.  

Prior to the unfortunate issues, Reinhardt was headed for a career-best Speedweek points finish.

Entering the second half of the ten-race series, Reinhardt sat 6th in the point standings.

Wednesday night at Port Royal Speedway, a place that has been challenging in recent years, Reinhardt’s qualifying lap ranked him 9th in Group B and put him 5th on the starting grid for his heat race.  With the top five transferring to the A-main, it put the New Oxford, PA driver in good position to make the show.

Reinhardt got the job done, finishing 5th and transferring to the feature.  He went on to move forward a few spots and finish 15th in the 30-lap finale.  

The following night the series visited Hagerstown Speedway, a track Reinhardt said he looks forward to racing each year when the sprint cars make their lone annual visit.

Reinhardt qualified 18th at the Maryland half-mile and logged another heat race finish of 5th to transfer to the A-main once again.

Despite managing an engine that was running hot during Thursday’s show, Reinhardt made it through the 30-lap feature to record a 15th-place finish.

Friday night Speedweek action returned to Williams Grove Speedway where Reinhardt had logged a top ten finish a week earlier in the Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers, Coors Banquet Beer, E-Z-GO Golf Cars, Henry’s Wrecker Service No.91.

His qualifying result was on par with the week before but he battled an overheating engine again in his heat race, slipping back two spots to a 7th place finish.

Reinhardt was forced to make the tough call to end his week before the B-main took to the track.  

“Hate to have to pull the plug on our week but I just can’t afford to hurt this engine and my other engine is currently getting freshened. I want to thank David, Mike, Kent, and Chris for all their hard work and efforts this week.”, Reinhardt said.

I think we made better improvements with the car but I think we were being held back with engine issues during the week. Definitely disappointing to end early after such a grueling effort all week long.


Reinhardt had already planned to take a break in his schedule after Speedweek.  That break now becomes a must while he gets his engines back in race-ready condition before the World of Outlaws’ summer swing through Central Pennsylvania.

The Neptune City, NJ native plans to complete with the Outlaws at BAPS Motor Speedway on July 24th and Williams Grove Speedway on July 26th and 27th.
