Rutherford wins on a last corner pass

VENTURA, CA - MAY 9, 2010... With 32 Sprint cars signed into the pits racing was outstanding!  Once again we had a different winner in the VRA360 Sprint Cars at Ventura Raceway.  With seven races completed in 2010 we have had seven different winners.  This week it was point leader Troy Rutherford taking the win in the 30-lap feature.  Rutherford’s win keeps him out front in the 2010 point race over 2009 champ Kevin Kierce who now trails by 115 points.  For the first time in VRA history a father and son, Kevin Kierce and son Justin started on the front row of a main event.  They raced hard for several laps as Brent Camarillo, Josh Ford, Cory Kruseman, Rutherford, Steve Conrad and others moved toward the front.  After Justin left the race it was Brent Camarillo and Kierce battling for several laps with Camarillo taking the lead for a few laps, all the while Rutherford was coming forward from his 9th place starting position.  Also on the move was Kenny Perkins.  When the yellow flew on lap 27 for Ronnie Cases slowing on the track, the field was bunched up for a three-lap shoot out.  Camarillo was out front at the green but Kierce passed him coming out of turn two for the lead.  Rutherford whom restarted third then made a bold move to take the lead to take the win at the checkered flag.  Camarillo spun in turn four coming to the finish and collected Cory Kruseman and the both finished the race in the infield in 13th and 14th place.  Following Rutherford and Kierce to the line were Ford and Perkins.  There is a scoring review underway to see if it was Rick Hendrix or Brody Roa in fifth and sixth.  The race was one of the best we have seen all year as these drivers battled for all 30 laps.  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 Cory Kruseman, the Racing Optics Heat #3 went to Steve Conrad and the Fast Undercar Heat #4 went to Brian Camarillo.  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 Greg Alexander with Tom Hendrix, Ronnie Case and Greg Taylor joining him as transfer drivers to the main.
It was a good night for the VRA Seniors as well with 19 cars taking the green for their 20 lap main event. The race began with Russell DeBleau and Victor Davis on the front row.  Davis jumped out front and led for a few laps as Jesse Denome and Rob Kershaw began their move to the front.  As the race progressed, Kershaw got to the lead with Denome on his tail.  Denome driving the Steve Watt number 69 was able to get by Kershaw with a couple of laps to go to take his first VRA Senior win.  Kershaw, Davis, Danny Miller and Mark Weitzman followed him across the line. There were three heat races run with wins going to Mark Weitzman taking the LRB Manufacturing Heat #1, Bruce Douglass taking the Maxwell Industries Heat #2 and Rob Kershaw taking the Fast Undercar Heat #3.  Kershaw’s second place finish puts him 25 points out front in the season point race over Bruce Douglass after four races.
There were 20 VRA Pro Dwarf Cars in attendance Saturday night. Everyone wanted to see if anyone could break point leader Angel Figueroa’s win streak.  After all was said and done, Lars Wolfe almost pulled it off, only to have Figueroa get by him at the close of the 15 lap feature for win number 4 in four events.  The race was a battle between Wolfe, Figueroa and Mike Lewis.  Lewis finished third with Curt Cook fourth and Chuck Lippert taking fifth.  There were three heat races run with wins going to Ray Estrada, Steven Bensen and Kevin Alverson.  Figueroa will be back in action next week seeking a record five feature wins in a row.
IMCA Modifieds were also racing Saturday night.  With fourteen cars signed in two heat races were run with wins going to Damon Redman and Danny Lauer.  Lauer went on to take the main event with Redman, Kenny Kirkpatrick and Aaron Rodarte the only cars on the lead lap in second through fourth.  Austin Rodarte maintains an 11 point lead over Redman in the point’s race after a seventh place finish.
The final group racing Saturday night was our VRA Go Karts.  23 karts signed in necessitating a semi main event.  Three heats were run with wins going to Chriss Gibb, Jimmy May and Robert DelGaudio.  The semi main went to Morgan Cole.  The 20-lap feature went to Gibb with Richard Renken, Ford, Steven Ito and David Pankratz rounding out the top five.  Josh Ford’s strong performance Saturday moved him into the season point lead by 15 points over Richard Renken.
Racing action returns to Ventura Raceway next week with VRA Sprints, Senior Dwarf Cars, IMCA Modifieds, Sport Compacts and VRA Go Karts.
