May 29th, 2010 Results

Greg Taylor and crew back in the winners circle.

Ventura CA - May 29, 2010...2010 has been a year of streaks set and streaks broken. The pattern continued last Saturday night with two streaks broken and new ones set to begin. On a night when Ventura Raceway saw six adult classes in competition fans witnessed some outstanding racing.

Greg Taylor ended Troy Rutherford’s short two race win streak with a powerful win that saw Greg look like the Greg Taylor of old as he came from his six place starting position to take his second win of the 2010 season. The race saw one red flag as Greg Alexander flipped in turn one and a small fire was detected and quickly extinguished. Taylor’s win came in a race that saw four different race leaders in the first twelve laps. Brandon Thomson led laps 1-4 until Josh ford passed him to lead laps 5-8 and again on lap 11-12. Brent Camarillo ran another strong race leading lap 9-10 before crashing in turn two. Taylor took the lead on lap 13 and led to the finish. Following Taylor to the line were Ford, point leader Rutherford, Derek Buckley and Steve Conrad. There were four heat races run on Saturday night. The LRB Manufacturing Heat Race #1 went to Brent Camarillo, The Steve Watt Enterprises Heat # 2 went to Kevin Kierce, the Kaeding Performance Heat #3 went to Marcus Niemela and the Fast Undercar Heat #4 went to Greg Taylor. Niemela’s win in heat three was the first heat race for him. Ventura Raceway and all our drivers want to thank our new contingency sponsors that have come on board to help out our fine drivers. There was one semi main run with the win going to Brian Camarillo in the ITI Performance Semi. Other transferring drivers from the semi main were John Nock, Justin Kierce and Guy Woodward. Troy Rutherford maintains a 220 point lead over Kevin Kierce after Kierce had a eleventh place finish.

VRA Senior Sprints returned to action to see if last race winner Jesse Denome could get his streak going. It was not to be as Rob Kershaw took the 15 lap feature win over past IMCA Sprint Car Champion Gary Howard who finished second. 2009 series champion Bruce Douglass finished third, Russell DeBlauw was fourth and Denome was fifth. Three heat races were run with wins going to Cliff Warren, Jesse Denome and Rob Kershaw. Rob Kershaw leads the season points race by 70 over Douglass.

IMCA Modifieds were back again this weekend with 16 cars in attendance. Two heat races were run with wins going to Randy Thornell and Jack Parker. The 20 lap feature was another barnburner with five different leaders taking their turns out front. Steve Bulpitt, Dennis Eckert, Brad Prows, Larry Hood and eventual winner Damon Redman all lad laps in the fast paced event. It appeared that Hood would win the event but late race traffic on lap 17 played a part in Redman’s pass that led to his win and caused Hood to fall to fourth position. Following Redman across the line were Randy Thornell, Brad Prows, Larry Hood and Austin Rodarte, who now leads Redman by 6 points in the season point race after 7 races.

VRA Dwarf Cars were in action Saturday night with the longest win streak on the line. Angel Figueroa was going for five wins in a row in Pro Dwarf car action, but a float tire in early competition put an end to the streak and run for the record. He would finish seventh in the time shortened event. The win went to 2009 series champ Ray Estrada who finally got his new car running well for the win. Second through fifth went to Mike Lewis, Steven Benson, Lee Majors and Thomas Velasquez. Two heats were run with wins going to Figueroa and Velasquez. Figueroa’s seventh place finish keeps him 210 points ahead of Steven Benson in the point race. In Senior Dwarf Car action, past champion Kevin Alverson took the feature win over 15 other drivers. Following him to the line were George Calvo, Rick Lapke, Mike Neal and George Sack Jr. Two heats were run with wins going to Keith Koslov and George Calvo. Kent Benson maintains a 15 point lead over Calvo in the point race.

The last group racing Saturday was our VRA Go Karts. 22 karts signed into the pits for the night. Three heat races were run with wins going to David Pankratz, Chriss Gibb, and Tyler Stover. A Semi main event was run with the win going to Ken Ito. The 20 lap feature went to Richard Renken with Robert DelGaudio, Pankratz, Jimmy May and Kyle Park finishing second through fifth.

Ventura Raceway is back in action this coming Saturday night with a program featuring VRA Sprints, Dwarf Cars, IMCA Modifieds, California Lightning Sprints and our kid’s classes.
