(Oct. 6, 2014, Cliff Morgan, Ventura Raceway) Ventura Raceway's 2014 Flat Track Motorcycle season concluded Saturday night October 4, with a full program of motorcycle racing featuring exciting flat track and speedway racing. With a smaller than usual 68 riders signed into the pits, the fans in attendance saw some very good racing despite the smaller than usual fields. Fifteen classes ranging from kids 65 and under to vintage and modern flat track and oval races for bikes all the way to open professional racers going for a first place prize of $1,200. Racing was once again fast and furious from the first to last event. Additionally a Team Speedway bike race was held as well for Division 1 through Vintage racers.

In the Kid's class, Ashton Carlson took the win in the 65cc and under class over Ty Travis, Josh Travis and Cody Morin.

In the adult classes for amateur riders wins went to Patrick O'Conner over Howdy Grabau in the flat track 150cc Pit Bike Class. In the Pit Bike 125cc and under class the win went to John Tinsley over Howdy Grabau. In 500 cc Vintage racing the win went to Johnny McClure. 750 cc vintage racing saw Larry Earhart win over Mike Boal. The Hooligan Derby class was won by Shaun Guardado over Daniel Vidrio and Gabriel Vidrio. The Open Vet Class for over 35 year olds went to James Davis over Sean Lambert. In the Vintage Brakeless/Handshift class the win went to Paul Herman over Josh Travis and Mike Boal. 250/450 cc Motocross Flat Track went to Tom Hendricks over James Davis. The 450cc Flat Track win went to John Tinsley over Brian Harmon. The 250/450cc Motorcross Flat Track win went to James Davis over Loui Zuvic and Dave Tice.

Team USA World Cup star and AMA National #3 Max Ruml scored a faultless 4 ride maximum at Ventura on October 4th, but his Vikings team went down 54-45 to the superior Aces.

This late addition to the US Speedway season proved to be very popular with the riders and fans in attendance on this double billed show with Flat Track races. Each team featured 8 riders with 4 500cc laydown riders and 4 Vintage bike riders per team. Each rider raced 4 times in the 16 heat program.

Austin Novratil was second behind Ruml in 3 of the heats, but was unlucky when leading his third and then was hit with a flat tire. Rocco Scopellite had a mixed night with two very impressive wins and two last places. Dillon Ruml scored 9 points on his West Coast 500cc debut, including 2 wins. Eddie Castro scored a steady 6+2 at his local track where he is still a huge fan favorite.

For the vintage riders, Dan Waller was unbeaten with 12 points and 4 wins. Malcolm Roe, a Manchester native and Belle Vue fan, scored 3 wins and 11 points for the Aces. Pat Smith, also an Ace, ended with 9+1.

The Aces held a 15-9 lead after heat 4, going up to 10 points after heat 6. Max Ruml got a double point win for the Vikings in heat 8 to make the gap 7. After heat 12 the Vikings pulled back to 40-35 down and a 4-2 in heat 13 left the gap at 3. But a 5-1 and 4-2 in heats 14 and 15 pulled the lead back to 9 which stayed with a 3-3 in the final race as Max Ruml led home Novratil, Castro and Scopellite.

Vikings 45 - M Ruml 15, Scopellite 6, Ron Davis 0, Bruce Marteney 5; (Vintage) Bob Waller 5+1, D Waller 12, Mike Novartil 0, Dave Tice 0, Ron Bankow 2

Aces 54- A Novratil 6, E Castro 6+2, D Ruml 9, Mike Lane 4+1; (Vintage) John Vandermeulen 6+3, M Roe 11, P Smith 9+1, Dave Smith 3+2
Chat Conversation End

Five professional riders took the green flag in their 20 lap main event going for the winners check of $1,200., A J Hateley took the 20 lap feature over Brandon Watters, Andrew Luker, Casey Cahoon and Larry Earhart. These racers thrilled the crowd with hard fought racing from the first lap until the finish on lap 20. A J Hateley took their eight lap heat win. The smaller than normal pro field was due to a very high paying race being held at Willow Springs Raceway Saturday night.

We now take October 11 off for the Fair to hold the Highland Games. We will return to racing on October 18th, with a full field of Sprint cars battling to see who will become the King of the Beach for 2014 as we conclude our 2014 ARP Battle at the Beach series within a series. Also racing will be Dwarf Cars, Sport Compacts, California Lightning Sprints, Mod Lites and our Kid's classes.
