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.

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.

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.“
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.
70 races, 0 wins, 8 top 5’s, 18 top 10’s, 34 top 15’s
