Kyle Reinhardt Scores Top-5 In First Trip To Huset’s Speedway

Story By: A2DPR / KYLE REINHARDT RACING – EAGLE, NE – Kyle Reinhardt was preparing to race his own No.91 at Lincoln Speedway’s Elijah Hawkins Memorial last weekend but his plans quickly changed when Bernie Stuebgen reached out and asked the Neptune City, NJ native to wheel his Indy Race Parts No.71 at a couple of Midwest shows.

Reinhardt filled the seat of Stuebgen’s car at a High Limit Racing event last year at Grandview Speedway. He recorded a top-ten finish that night. Opportunity knocked again last week to wheel the car at Knoxville Raceway Saturday night and again a few days later at the Eagle Raceway (NE) High Limit Racing event.


Reinhardt’s first trip to Knoxville Raceway in 2024 Saturday night was also his first time in the seat of the No.71 this year. With only a few hot laps under his belt, he took to the half-mile for qualifying. His best lap ranked him 19th in the field of 30.

A 7th-place run in his heat put him 19th on the grid for the A-main. He netted a 17th-place finish in that 20-lap finale.

“We were behind the 8-ball tonight by about one track session. We were playing catch-up all night but got better by the end. I wish we had another go at it.”, Reinhardt said.

“Ripped the nose wing off when a few cars stacked up coming to the green in the feature. Bernie had the wrench spinning & made some big changes that got us better.”

A last-minute decision early Sunday made Reinhardt and the Indy Race Parts No.71 a surprise entry at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, SD that night. The 3/8-mile banked oval was another first for Reinhardt but it didn’t show.

He posted the 3rd quickest lap in Group A qualifying, then converted a 3rd place start in his heat race to a runner-up finish, putting himself solidly inside the top ten to start the A-main.

From his starting spot inside row four, Reinhardt grabbed the 6th spot on the opening circuit and settled in there until near the midpoint of the 25-lap finale.

The car got even better in the late stages and Reinhardt didn’t waste it. He cracked the top five on lap fourteen, then claimed the 4th spot on lap twenty-three, which is where he took the checkers.

“We definitely rebounded tonight. That felt good.”, Reinhardt commented.

“I want to thank Bernie for the opportunity. He gave me a great car. I also want to thank Tod Quiring and Huset’s Speedway for having us. That is a bad-ass track and I’m extremely happy I had the opportunity to race here.”

The third leg of Reinhardt’s Midwest tour took him to Eagle Raceway in Nebraska on Tuesday night. A stout field of 43 teams was on hand for the $50,000-to-win High Limit Racing event.

Reinhardt clocked in 12th quickest in Group B qualifying. A 6th place run in his heat race and 5th place finish in the B-main were both one spot short of claiming a spot in the A-main.


Reinhardt will take the upcoming weekend off to conserve his engines for the upcoming Pennsylvania Sprint Speedweek.
