Ventura CA - April 16, 2011.....Troy Rutherford continues to be the man to beat as he took his fourth VRA Sprint Car race of the new season to increase his season point lead to 120 points over Greg Taylor. Rutherford has been almost unbeatable this season as he goes for his second series championship. In five races only Steve Conrad's win on March 12 has broken his string of victories. Starting from fifth position in the 30 lap feature, Rutherford took the lead on lap 13 from Steve Conrad, who had led the first 12 laps from his front row starting position. From that point on Rutherford was never headed and took the checkered flag ahead of Conrad, Johnathan Henry, Brent Camarillo and Josh Ford. With 28 cars signed into the pits for the night's competition, four hear races were run. Heat race wins went to Josh Ford in heat one, Cory Kruseman in heat two, Rutherford in heat three and Derek Buckley in heat four. One Semi Main was run with the win going to Brandon Thomson with Dakota Kershaw, Tom Harper and Clark Templeman III joining in the transfers to the main event.

VRA Senior Sprints were back Saturday with 13 cars signed into the pits for two heat races and a 20 lap feature. Clif Warren took the win in heat one with Richard McCormick taking heat two. The 20 lap feature was a battle between Russell Deblauw, Rob Kershaw and Bruce Douglass. Deblauw led the first lap but series point leader Kershaw took over the lead on lap two and led to the checkered flag with Douglass trying to catch him. The win puts Kershaw 10 points out front in the season long point battle over Douglass and 100 points ahead of Deblauw. Finishing behind Kershaw and Douglass were Richard McCormick, Clif Warren and Russell DeBlauw.

IMCA Modiifeds ran two heat races Saturday night with wins going to Brad Prows and Austin Rodarte. Twelve of the 14 cars signed in started the 20 lap feature with the win going to past champion Jack Parker followed by Brad Prows, Austin Rodarte, John Romero and Rob Green. Prow's second place finish moved him ahead of 2010 series champion Austin Rodarte in the 2011 season run for the championship by a slim 4 point margin after four races.

VRA Pro Dwarf Cars saw a small field of 9 cars in attendance Saturday night. One heat race was run with the win going to Kevin Calvo. Their feature event went to past series champion Ray Estrada. He was followed across the line by Curt Cook, Kevin Calvo, Tom Stephens and Jason Horton.

The California Lightning Sprints made their first appearance at Ventura Raceway in 2011 Saturday. Heat race wins went to Jacob Will and Jim Squire III. the 20 lap feature went to Dan Hillberg after on track winner Jarrett Kramer failed post race tech.

Our final class that raced Saturday night was our VRA Go Karts. Four heat race s were run with wins going to Scott Bohle, Dave Pankratz, Richard Renken and Tyler Stover. One Semi Main was run with the win going to Josh Ford. The 20 lap feature went to Richard Renken followed by James Locey, Dave Pankratz, Jeremy Ellertson and Bill Didion.
