Ford Wins All Coast $2000

Saturday night March 20, saw a great field of VRA Sprint Cars assembled for the first race in the 2010 All Coast Challenge Series. Some of the best sprint car drivers in the West were on hand to go for the $2,000 to win first place check. Visiting drivers included David Cardy, Nic Faas, Henry Clarke and Johnathan Henry. These drivers were there to challenge the regular VRA drivers for the cash and glory.

Racing got under way with five heat races for the 43 cars signed into the pits. Heat race wins went to Rob Kershaw, Troy Rutherford, Rick Hendrix, Josh Ford and Ronnie Case. The large car count necessitated a two semi main format. The semi mains ran 12 laps with four cars transferring to the feature. The first semi went to Greg Taylor with Cody Kershaw, Guy Woodward and Bruce Douglass joining him in moving on the feature. Jeff Culver won the second semi main with Nic Faas, Luis Espinoza and David Cardy also moving on to the feature. The 30-lap feature was highly anticipated as the 23 starters fired off for the start. The race got under way with Henry Clarke out front early but Josh Ford, Jimmy Crawford and Kevin Kierce were on the move to the front. Clarke and Ford were able to get out front and battled for several laps, until a yellow came out for a flip in turn three by Brian Camarillo. When the race resumed the battle continued with Ford getting by Clarke who eventually would make contact with another car and stop in turn two, bringing out the yellow. On lap 19 Ronnie Case hit the wall in turn one-two and slowed to a stop in turn three. From that point on, it was a battle to the flag with Josh Ford holding off Troy Rutherford and then Jimmy Crawford and Kevin Kierce. At the flag it was Josh Ford taking the win, followed by Kevin Kierce, Jimmy Crawford, Don Ganson and Troy Rutherford. It was a great start to the three race series in a series that will conclude with a $5,000 to win event in October.

IMCA Modifieds made their 2010 debut with a field of seventeen cars in the pits. Heat race wins went to Damon Redman and Matt Lauer. Lauer went on to dominate the feature and take the win. Dennis Eckert, Ron Wiley, Rob Green and Jack Parker followed him across the line. 2009 series track champion Austin Rodarte finished sixth.

Also racing on Saturday night were the VRA Pro Dwarf Cars. In heat race action, wins went to Angel Figueroa, Eric Alton and Curt Cook. Figueroa then went on to win the 15-lap feature. Finishing second through fifth in the feature were Steven Benson, Dillon Hume, Bill VanPraag and Thomas Velasquez.

The final group racing Saturday was our VRA Sport Compacts. Now racing in rear wheel only competition, 14 cars were ready for the night’s action. Two heat races were run with wins going to Trevor Fitzbiggon and Jason Marshall. Fitzgibbon then went on to take the 15 lap feature. Also finishing in the top five were James Brown, Brent Underwood, Mike Frazier and Bill Changus.

Next Saturday night, March 27, will see VRA Sprints, Senior Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, Senior Dwarf Cars, Junior Midgets and Mini Dwarf Cars in action.
