Kyle Reinhardt’s Consistent Speed Runs Streak Of Top-10’s To Seven After Two-Race Weekend
Story By: A2DPR / KYLE REINHARDT RACING – SELINSGROVE, PA – Over the weekend, Kyle Reinhardt and the Capitol Renegade team put another solid pair of outings in Central Pennsylvania, continuing to show they are on the doorstep of bigger things.
Their top five at Williams Grove Speedway in the Tommy Hinnershitz Classic and top ten at Selinsgrove Speedway takes their current streak to seven consecutive top ten finishes. That streak includes three top five finishes for the Capitol Renegade, Capitol Custom Coaches & Trailers, Henry’s Wrecker No.91.
Reinhardt put together a solid night from beginning to end at Williams Grove Speedway Friday night. He kicked off the night by qualifying 7th quickest overall, then proceeded to back it up with a convincing heat race run, powering by Dylan Cisney for the win.
The Neptune City, NJ native took the green for the 30-lap Tommy Hinnershitz Classic from inside the second row. Reinhardt was in the thick of the battle throughout the event, holding down the 3rd and 4th positions over the course of the race.
A late restart led Reinhardt into a heated battle with Danny Dietrich for the 3rd spot. After trading numerous sliders and cross-overs with Dietrich, he had to check up entering turn three when the pair went for the same piece of real estate at the same time. It was just enough for Lance Dewease to slip by and relegate Reinhardt to a 5th place finish.
“That was another solid run for us and we did it against tougher competition. We need to keep building on that.“, Reinhardt said.
Saturday’s planned event at Port Royal Speedway was cancelled due to heavy rains, giving the team a rare Saturday off. The $10,000 to win Spring Thaw at ‘The Speed Palace’ has been rescheduled to Saturday, April 29th.
Sunday afternoon Reinhardt rolled into Selinsgrove Speedway feeling optimistic. Not only has his team’s speed and performance been consistent recently, this has been one of his favorite places to race over the years. His stats there gave him good reason to feel good about his chances.
Reinhardt clocked in 7th fastest in the field, starting his day off just like he did on Friday. Unlike Friday, he wasn’t able to convert that into a heat race win to put himself in the redraw. He held down the runner up spot throughout the heat until Anthony Macri slipped by on the final circuit, handing him a 3rd place finish.
From his 9th starting spot in the A-main, Reinhardt fought hard for forward progress. He was able to keep himself inside the top ten throughout the 25-lap race but could never mount a charge toward the front. In the end, he crossed the line with a 10th place finish.
“I’m a little disappointed with our run tonight to be honest. We were just a little off all day. I wasn’t expecting the top to come in so good in the feature, so we missed the setup a little bit.“, Reinhardt commented.
Saturday, April 29th, Kyle and the Capitol Renegade team will compete in The Spring Thaw at Port Royal Speedway, taking their shot at the $10,000 winner’s share.
Sunday the team will head to BAPS Motor Speedway where the winner is guaranteed $5,500 but could walk away with as much as $7,500!
