Consistently running at the front of the field challenging for victories, Dale Reinhart would place sixth in the final Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modifieds presented by Just Foam It Standings.
Beginning the season with a qualifier victory at Sunset Speedway, Reinhart was able to start up front, taking the lead in the feature on the opening lap. He would lead the next 38 laps, only for contact from behind to send the No. 51 around coming off of turn two; he rebounded to place ninth. Returning to the Innisfil facility two weeks later, he scored another heat win, and made passes throughout the 40 laps for a fifth.
With qualifying rained out at the beach, Reinhart was able to start up front at Sauble Speedway, and ran inside the top-five through the first half of the event until contact from behind sent him around at the halfway mark. Although he tried to rebound, involvement in another incident relegated him to 14th. The comeback run came a couple weeks later back at Sunset Speedway, turning a heat victory into running inside the top-five all feature long to place fifth.
Although he started up front once again a week later at Delaware Speedway, he would see his feature end early on the first lap as he got tangled up in a wreck following contact ahead of him. The team made the necessary repairs through the following week, allowing their driver to score a third-place finish at Flamboro Speedway.
He then capped off the season with another heat win, followed by running inside the top-three most of the feature before a late pass resulted in a fifth-place finish.
Despite some rough moments during the season, Reinhart continued to show speed behind the wheel of the No. 51 Modified, which should translate to trips to victory lane in 2022.
