Kyle Reinhardt Wraps Up Rookie All Star Season at Fremont

Year on the Road Provided Learning Opportunities

Back in January 2021, there was no doubt in Kyle Reinhardt’s mind that he and his Capitol Renegade team would face new challenges and learn a lot in their upcoming inaugural season on the road with the All Star Circuit of Champions.  They were about to go to school and build quite a notebook.

 

Just over eight months later, the All Star season was poised to fade into the rear view mirror and Reinhardt’s freshman year, so to speak, would be complete.  There was just one more weekend to study, and it took the team to Fremont, Ohio.

 

10/8:  Jim & Joanne Ford Classic Prelim Night at Fremont Speedway – Fremont, OH

 

The story Friday night was all about Mother Nature.  Storms passed through the northern Ohio area, bringing rain and hail.  Despite their best efforts, the track crew was unable to overcome the weather, forcing officials to cancel the program.

10/9:  Jim & Joanne Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway – Fremont, OH 

          (48 cars, Qualifying 9th in group D, Heat 8th, C-main 2nd, A-main 18th)

 

Saturday brought better weather and 48 teams to compete for the $10,000 winner’s share in the Jim & Joanne Ford Classic at Fremont Speedway. It was the All Star Circuit of Champions season finale.  

 

The large car count meant the field was aligned into five groups.  Teams would qualify and heat race against those in their group.  Kyle Reinhardt was the 5th to hit the track in group D but the resulting time of 13.781 was 9th quickest in the group.

 

Only the top four finishers would transfer from each 8-lap heat race to the A-main, so Reinhardt had a tall order in front of him from his 9th starting spot in heat number four.  His 8th place finish relegated him to the C-main, leaving him with an even taller order.

 

Reinhardt was able to move his Capitol Renegade, Champion Hi-Tech Lubricants, Henry’s Wrecker Service No.91 forward in the 10-lap C-main, finishing 2nd and transferring to the B-main.

 

The team opted for a series provisional to start the A-main, bypassing the last chance qualifying race.   The Neptune City, NJ native was able to go +7 from his 25th starting spot in the A-main, recording an 18th place finish.  

 

Reflecting on the 2021 ASCoC Season

 

It was definitely a learning year.  I learned; the whole team learned…every night.  We saw a lot of new places.  In the long run it will make me and the team better.  It already has honestly“, Reinhardt shared candidly.  

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team appeared in 37 All Star features and 16 dashes, finishing 8th in series points.  The team captured victories in 7 heat races, 2 dashes and 1 A-main during the 2021 season.

 

We had some good moments, like our first win, but of course we expected more of our team.  Going into the season we weren’t sure what to expect.  After Florida we felt like we should be able to compete for a spot somewhere in the middle of the top 10 in points.  We fell short of that, largely because of all the new challenges we faced in the early part of the season.  We missed features because we didn’t solve those problems as quickly as we needed to.  It was a whole new team learning to work together and seeing new tracks all at the same time.  No excuses.  That’s just how it was“, Reinhardt surmised.

 

Up Next

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will race close to home, making a stop at BAPS Motor Speedway on Saturday, October 23rd.  It will be their final tune up before heading to The World Finals in Charlotte in early November.

Reinhardt Returns to Action at Grove’s National Open

All Star Season Finale Up Next at Fremont

New Oxford, PA – October 6, 2021

 )

After being sidelined for a couple weekends, Kyle Reinhardt eagerly returned to the seat of the Capitol Renegade No.91.  The team returned to the track for the 59th Annual Champion Oil National Open at Williams Grove Speedway.  

 

The event is attended by tens of thousands of fans, watched by even more and is one of the most coveted events for winged sprint car drivers and teams.  Not only is the race lucrative, paying $75,000 to the winner, but it has been won by a who’s who in sprint car racing over the years.  The winners list includes names that range from Indy 500 winner, Gordon Johncock, to the King of the Outlaws, Steve Kinser.  It’s one of those handful of events that provide a sense of pride just to make the starting field.

 

10/1:  National Open Prelim Night at Williams Grove Speedway – Mechanicsburg, PA 

        (49 cars, Qualifying 6th in flight 1, Heat 4th, A-main 23rd)

 

The month of October opened with a perfect Central Pennsylvania autumn evening that saw 49 teams unload in the pits at Williams Grove Speedway.  They were there not only to chase the $10,000 winner’s share, but more importantly, learn everything they could so they could be at their best the following night, when the eyes of the sprint car world would descend on the legendary oval.

 

A good pill draw put Kyle Reinhardt fourth in line to take the track for time trials in the World of Outlaws’ sanctioned event.  He used that opportunity to record the 6th quickest lap in the flight of 25.

 

The format called for four 8-lap heat races, from which the top 5 would transfer to the A-main.  Reinhardt’s qualifying effort placed him 3rd for the start of heat number two.  After a tough battle in the opening laps, the Neptune City, NJ native settled into the 4th position and held on to that spot to transfer to the night’s finale.

 

Reinhardt took the green for the 25-lap A-main from the inside of row eight and struggled from the start.  He battled an ill-handling racecar throughout the event, slowly sliding backward through the running order to a frustrating 23rd place finish.

  

10/2:  59th Annual National Open at Williams Grove Speedway – Mechanicsburg, PA 

          (48 cars, Qualifying 21st in flight 2, Heat 9th, B-main 13th)

 

Saturday night brought 48 teams back to take their shot at the $75,000 top prize.  A less friendly pill draw had Reinhardt near the less desirable end of the qualifying order, taking to the track as the 17th of 24 drivers in flight 2, and 41st overall.  Kyle was unable to wring the kind of lap he needed out of his Capitol Renegade No.91, leaving him a disappointing 21st when the dust settled.

 

With only the top five finishers in each heat race moving to the A-main, Reinhardt had a tall order from his 11th starting spot in heat number three.  In that situation, when a giant leap forward will be difficult, the strategy is often to take two smaller steps.  The first step would be to at least finish somewhere between 6th and 9th to get into the B-main, where the team would have a chance to take the second step into the A-main.  Finishing 10th or worse in the heat race relegates teams to the C-main and creates a nearly insurmountable challenge to get to the finale.

 

The All Star Circuit of Champions Rookie of the Year candidate came out of the gate quick in his heat race, surging to the 8th spot on lap one.  From there, he found himself in an intense battle to maintain position to make the cut for the B-main.  He managed to survive, bringing home a 9th place finish to avoid an unwanted trip to the C-main.  

 

Figuratively speaking, Reinhardt once again found himself looking up a steep hill when the green flag dropped on the 12-lap Last Chance Showdown.  Starting outside the 8th row, Reinhardt gave it everything he had, but ultimately finished 13th in the B-main, ending his night.

 

We were a lot better Friday but I didn’t have things quite right for the feature that night“, Reinhardt commented, referring directly to himself and alluding to the fact that he was handling the setup chores after the team recently parted ways with crew chief Bob Curtis.  “Saturday we tried to improve using what we experienced Friday but it made it worse for qualifying, so we were trying to play catch up all night”, he concluded.

 

Up Next

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will close out their first full All Star Circuit of Champions season on October 8th and 9th at Fremont Speedway in Fremont, OH at the Jim and Joanne Ford Classic, where the Saturday night finale will pay $10,000 to the victor.

Reinhardt Earns First Career Tuscarora 50 Start

Pockets $6,000 Bonus to Cap Weekend

New Oxford, PA – September 15, 2021

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

 )

Kyle Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team rolled into Port Royal Speedway last week for the three-night, All Star sanctioned, Tuscarora 50 that has become the centerpiece of the season schedule at “The Speed Palace”.  The team had struggled on the tricky surface in earlier season appearances and was aiming to show the strides they had made since then, plus hopefully take home a chunk of the cash that was up for grabs at the lucrative event.

 

9/9:  Port Royal Speedway – Port Royal, PA 

        (45 cars, Qualifying 4th in group B/12th overall, Heat 2nd,A-main 22nd)

 

With 45 teams singed in to compete, the “41 or more” All Star format was in use, dividing teams into 5 equal groups of nine cars for hot laps, qualifying and heat races.  

 

Reinhardt qualified 4th quickest in Group B, giving him the pole for the second 8-lap heat race, with Bill Balog lined up beside him.  Balog used the preferred outside line to beat Kyle to turn one at the drop of the green.  Reinhardt chased Balog but was unable to run him down and settled for the runner-up finish and a spot in the A-main.

 

Rolling to the green for the 30-lap feature from his 12th starting spot, Reinhardt looked racy at the start.  He held his ground, briefly claimed 11th, and threatened to move into the top 10 during the first half of the A-main.  The handling of the Capitol Renegade No.91 went away as the race moved into the later stages, causing the All Star Rookie of the Year candidate to slip back a handful of positions.  With about five laps remaining, Reinhardt quickly lifted and pulled down out of the groove when it seemed the motor had gone sour.  The issue ended his night and left him with a 22nd place finish officially.  Fortunately, the team later determined it was a header issue and nothing terminal.

  

9/10:  Night Before the 50 at Port Royal Speedway – Port Royal, PA 

          (55 cars, Qualifying 5th in group B/21st overall, Heat 6th, B-main 8th, A-main 22nd)

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team made repairs and returned to “The Speed Palace”
Friday for The Night Before the 50, along with 54 other teams, to go after the $10,000 winner’s share.  Given the hefty car count, the same format was in play as the previous night.

 

The qualifying effort by Reinhardt left him 5th fastest in Group B, which meant he would need to climb his way into one of the four transfer spots in the second 8-lap heat.  It wasn’t in the cards on this night, and the Neptune City, NJ native found himself on the outside looking in, crossing the line 6th at the finish.

 

Relegated to an 8th place start in the 12-lap B-main, Reinhardt once again needed to climb into the top four to make the A-main.  Despite his best efforts, he couldn’t make it happen and again found himself on the outside looking in.  He settled for an 8th place finish and opted to use a provisional to start the feature event.  Reinhardt started 27th in the 30-lap A-main and came home in 22nd.  

 

This was just one of those nights.  If you miss it early in qualifying, you spend the rest of the night trying to recover.  We’ll come back tomorrow and try to get out of the gate a little stronger“, Reinhardt shared.

 

9/11:  Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal Speedway – Port Royal, PA 

          (57 cars, Qualifying 11th in flight B, Heat 2nd, A-main 23rd)

 

Saturday night’s goal for Kyle Reinhardt was very simple:  Make the starting field for the 54th Annual Tuscarora 50.  It would be no easy task with a stout field of 57 cars in the pits.  Reinhardt had tried a few times in the past but had come up short, including 2020 when he blew a right rear tire while leading the B-main by a large margin.

 

The Tuscarora 50 uses its own unique format.  The field was divided into two flights for qualifying.  Within each flight, the field would then be divided into three heat races based on lap times.  A 4-car invert meant the fastest car in each heat started 4th, while the 4th fastest qualifier started on the pole.  The remainder of the field lined up by qualifying time behind those four.  Only the top three finishers would advance to the A-main, with each of the winners drawing for one of the top six starting spots.  Meanwhile, 4th-6th would move to the B-main and everyone from 7th back would fall to the C-main.

 

Reinhardt was the 9th of 28 cars to hit the track for Flight 2 time trials.  His lap of 18.640 was good enough for 11th in his flight and it kept him inside the inversion for the heat
race.  It was the first step to a good night.  It put Reinhardt on the pole of heat number five, giving him the best opportunity he could ask for to claim one of those top three spots and put himself into his first Tuscarora 50.

 

When the green flag dropped on the 8-lap heat race, Reinhardt surged to the point and took control of the race.  As the laps clicked off, 2nd place Dylan Cisney found his groove and began to reel in the Capitol Renegade No.91 of Reinhardt.  As the pair received the two to
go sign, Cisney took his shot.  He not only took the lead away from Reinhardt, along with it he claimed one of the top six starting spots in the feature.  It was a minor disappointment, but Reinhardt knew he didn’t give it away.  Cisney was just better than him in that event.  

 

The bottom line.  He would be in the starting field for his first Tuscarora 50.

 

Reinhardt took the green for the 50-lap finale from a very respectable 12th starting spot.  While the long distance race can be about tire conservation and pace, Kyle wasted no time
grabbing some track position by jumping into the top ten on the opening circuit.  During the opening segment, Reinhardt hovered around the 10th position, then slipping a couple spots by lap 15.  

 

That’s when the handle seemed to go away significantly.  By the time the field reached lap 20, Reinhardt was struggling and had faded to 22nd.  He restarted in that spot after the
halfway break, then slipped further back to 25th for a bit before recovering to 23rd at the checkered flag.  It certainly wasn’t the finish he or the team wanted or expected given how their night had gone.  They simply missed the setup that they needed to be competitive in the second half of the event.

 

The week did however end on a positive note for the Capitol Renegade team.  Jim and Sandy Kline regularly offer bonus money to a randomly chosen finisher in the feature events at Port Royal Speedway.  For the Tuscarora 50, they set that amount as a generous $6,000.  The random draw turned up pill #23, handing the cash to 23rd place finisher, Reinhardt.

 

While the finishes were certainly not satisfying, the team did show their improvement by timing well and earning spots in two of the three main events.  Putting an entire night together and finishing as strong as they start has been the elusive holy grail in recent weeks.  

 

We made our first Tuscarora 50, so we’re definitely happy about that.  We continued to show speed early too.  We just need to keep working hard to put it all together and be more consistent throughout the night“, Reinhardt commented.

Reinhardt Makes Small Gains at Attica

Attention Turns to Tuscarora 50 at Port Royal

New Oxford, PA – September 8, 2021

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

Feature Photo Credit:  Dave Hendrick Photography

 )

Kyle Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade No.91 team have struggled at Attica in two attempts earlier this season.  Both the April and June events at the one-third mile banked clay oval located on the Attica Fairgrounds in north central Ohio resulted in DNQ’s for the team on its rookie campaign with the All Stars.  Early September brought a pair of opportunities at Attica to show the improvement they have made as a team over the course of the 2021 season.

 

9/3:  Attica Raceway Park – Attica, OH

      (39 cars, Qualifying 6th in group D/30th overall, Heat 7th, B-main 4th, A-main 16th)

 

Night one of the two day All Star Circuit of Champions event at Attica Raceway Park saw 39 teams pit-side to compete for the $5,000 preliminary night top prize.  Kyle Reinhardt was the first in group D, and 31st overall, to hit the track for qualifying.

 

The struggles for Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team at Attica continued, as his qualifying lap of 13.057 was only good enough for 6th quickest in his group, placing him outside row three for the fourth heat race.  

 

The top five finishers from each heat would transfer to the A-main, but Reinhardt wasn’t able to mount a challenge for a transfer spot.  He rode home in 7th, relegating him to the B-main for one more shot to make the field.

 

Reinhardt would need to turn things around in the 12-lap B-main and he did just that.  He started 8th and steadily drove forward.  By lap 9 he was in 5th position and within striking distance of a transfer spot.  Reinhardt was able to run his fastest lap of the race on lap 11 and use the momentum to execute a last lap pass to claim the 4th and final transfer spot into the A-main.

 

Rolling off from his 24th starting spot, the All Star Rookie of the Year candidate continued turning a bad night into a good one.  During the 35-lap A-main, Reinhardt battled his way forward, making the most of a few restarts.  When the checkered flag flew, the Capitol Renegade No.91 had reached 16th.  Had it not been for brake issues late in the going, the result would likely have even been a few spots better, but given the team’s 2021 record at Attica, it was step in the right direction.  Going +4 in the B-main and +8 in the A-main shows progress is being made.  

  

9/4:  Attica Raceway Park – Attica, OH

      (36 cars, Qualifying 3rd in group B/11th overall, Heat 2nd, A-main 23rd)

 

Reinhardt and team returned Saturday night for the $10,000 to win Attica Ambush finale, hoping to continue their momentum.  They were one of 36 teams signed in to take their shot at the attractive purse.

 

Qualifying in Group B Saturday night, Kyle registered the 11th best overall lap, good enough for 3rd in the group.  Reinhardt started the second heat from outside the front row and chased leader Jac Haudenchild throughout the 8-lap event.  A win would have meant a spot in the dash redraw for the Neptune City, NJ native but he was unable to get by “The Wild Child” and settled for the runner-up finish.

 

Their 12th place start in the A-main Saturday night showed the steady gains that Reinhardt and crew chief Bob Curtis had made at Attica in 2021.  Unfortunately, the results at the end of the night were not as indicative.  The Capitol Renegade team has been making changes trying to solve recurring brake issues in recent months, but unfortunately the issue resurfaced early in Saturday’s A-main at Attica.  Reinhardt fought an unwinnable battle as he slowly slid back through the field, eventually calling it a night, and taking a 23rd place finish.  

 

Up Next:

 

Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team will return to familiar turf, Port Royal Speedway, to race in the highly lucrative, 3-day, All Star sanctioned Tuscarora 50.  The event spans September 9th-11th, paying $8,000, $10,000, and $54,000 to the winner respectively.

Reinhardt’s Week in PA: Solid Performances, Little Luck

Capitol Renegade Team Inching Closer to Consistent Top-10’s

New Oxford, PA – September 1, 2021

by Addicted2Dirt PR & Media Management

In three races in Central Pennsylvania last week, Kyle Reinhardt qualified for all three dashes, won two heats, and earned a starting spot no worse than 7th in the three feature events.  Sounds like an excellent week, doesn’t it?  Unfortunately, the story doesn’t end that way.

 

8/26:  Grandview Speedway – Bechtelsville, PA

      (26 cars, Qualifying 12th, Heat 1st,  Dash 5th, A-main 24th)

 

Thursday night, 26 teams made the trek to Eastern Pennsylvania to compete at the 1/3rd mile clay oval.  Reinhardt qualified mid-pack with a lap of 12.016, placing him 12th quick.  The single group qualifying format placed the All Star Rookie of the Year candidate on the pole for the 3rd heat.  

 

Reinhardt capitalized on the starting spot, holding the lead throughout the 8-lap contest, winning by 6-tenths of a second over Justin Peck and locking himself into the dash redraw.

 

The redraw wasn’t as friendly.  Reinhardt drew pill number five, giving him the inside row three starting spot.  Kyle was unable to gain any positions in the 6-lap dash but did hold onto 5th at the checkered flag.  

 

The real loss in the dash wasn’t positions, it was the motor.  It came up lame in the final lap, leaving the Capitol Renegade team a very small window of time to make repairs or swap motors, depending on the diagnosis.  The team quickly determined an engine change would be needed but there wasn’t sufficient time to do so, leaving the team with only one option to collect a paycheck for the night.  They would have to give up their 5th starting spot and elect to start at the rear of the field.  Reinhardt would take the green, then park the No.91 immediately to prevent further damage.

 

A solid night that looked primed to provide Reinhardt with a top-5 finish, instead left him watching from the sideline.

  

8/27:  Williams Grove Speedway – Mechanicsburg, PA

 

Unfortunately, Mother Nature claimed victory on the second night of the 4-race swing through PA.  Weather forced the legendary oval, Williams Grove Speedway, to cancel the annual Jack Gunn Memorial Twin 20’s program.  

 

8/28:  Lincoln Speedway – Abbottstown, PA

      (38 cars, Qualifying 4th in group D/20th overall, Heat 1st, Dash 4thA-main 6th)

 

Following the night off due to rain, the All Star tour rolled into the Pigeon Hills of Pennsylvania for the Kramer Klash, in honor of the late Kramer Williamson.  The field was 38 teams strong in pursuit of the $7,300 winner’s share.

 

Kyle Reinhardt was the 31st overall to go under the clock for qualifying.  His 13.562 second lap was solid for the late slot and good enough for 4th in his group and the pole of the 4th heat.

 

For the second consecutive night, the Neptune City, NJ native did not waste the opportunity, grabbing the lead at the drop of the green.   Reinhardt never gave up the top spot, cruising to a convincing 1.7 second victory over Alan Krimes. 

 

Reinhardt had to be sensing deja vu.  First there was the pole and heat win just like Thursday, then yet again the dash redraw turned up the 5th starting spot in the first dash. This time he was able to make forward progress, grabbing the 4th spot and securing the 7th starting spot for the A-main in the process.

 

The 35-lap feature at the 3/8-mile high banked oval provided the stage for Reinhardt to play out the final act of a solid night.  He raced solidly inside the top 10 throughout the event, ultimately netting one spot and finishing 6th, completing his career-best overall night at Lincoln Speedway.

 

8/29:  BAPS Motor Speedway – Newberrytown, PA

      (32 cars, Qualifying 4th in group A/5th overall, Heat 2nd, Dash 4th, A-main 23rd)

 

The fourth and final night of the PA swing for the All Stars led the series to Lincoln Speedway, a 4-tenths mile oval in the heart of Posse country.  

 

The night started well for Reinhardt, drawing the number one slot for qualifying.  He promptly turned in the 5th quickest time overall and 4th fastest in his group, once again putting the Capitol Renegade No.91 on the heat race pole.

 

Despite a side by side battle through the first corner at the start, Reinhardt could not claim the top spot from Bill Balog, who used the cushion to build momentum.  The pair exited turn two and powered down the backstretch with Reinhardt nipping at Balog’s heels.  On lap 3, Lucas Wolfe worked his way past Reinhardt, claiming the runner up spot at the line.  Kyle was up to the challenge, crossing over and pulling a slider on Wolfe to retake the spot on the next lap.  From there, Reinhardt built up a cushion and rode home in 2nd.  

 

Reinhardt was locked into the dash redraw for the 3rd race in a row and this time his pick was a little better.  Rolling off from inside row 2 in the dash, Reinhardt was looking to earn a starting spot at the front of the field.  Things didn’t quite work out that way.  The setup was off a touch, and he slipped to a 4th place finish, once again slotting him in the 4th row for the A-main.

 

The Capitol Renegade team applied what they had learned from the 4-lap dash and rolled Reinhardt out for the 30-lap feature.  It was evident from the drop of the green that Reinhardt had something good to work with.  As he flashed under the flag stand to complete lap 1, he was already up to 5th position.  A split second later, contact from behind turned Reinhardt around and sent him sliding down across the front straightaway and into the inside barrier.  The impact damaged his J&J Auto Racing No.91 and ended the night for the Capitol Renegade team.  They were officially credited with a 23rd place finish.

 

We had good speed all weekend, making 3-of-3 dashes, but we only have one finish to show for it.  I’m happy about our night at Lincoln.  That’s the best I’ve run there.  The other two nights were just things that were out of our control, so it’s frustrating.”, Reinhardt commented.  

 

He continued, “At Grandview we would have started 5th in the feature but we hurt the motor at the end of the dash and ran out of time to change it.  We had a great start to the night last night at BAPS.  Started 7th in the feature and was up to 5th on lap one but unfortunately got turned on the front stretch and it ended our night.  I have to thank my guys and Capitol Renegade for everything they do for me“.

 

Up Next:

 

There are ten races remaining in the All Star Circuit of Champions 2021 season.  The first two of those will take place this weekend, September 3rd-4th at Attica Raceway Park in Ohio.  Kyle and the Capitol Renegade team struggled at Attica earlier this season but have been consistently fast over the past six weeks.  They will carry that momentum into Attica to go after the $10,000 top prize in Saturday night’s finale, the “Attica Ambush”.
