Ventura CA - August 27, 2011..... Matt Mitchell had a night to remember as he took home the victors check for over $7,000 and a beautiful trophy in the inaugural VRA Vendors Cup Race Saturday night by taking the 40 lap feature win over a strong field of 32 VRA 360 Sprint Cars. Starting from the pole position, he led all 40 laps holding off a strong challenge from Cory Kruseman who gave it all he ha to get by Mitchell. The race was a fast and furious event that saw two red flags slow the race. The first was for a flip in turn one involving VRA point leader Greg Taylor and later on lap 36 past VRA champ Kevin Kierce had a nasty side by side flip entering turn three. Both drivers emerged from their wrecked cars uninjured. Mitchell was driving Steve Watts number 81 sprinter Saturday night. Following Mitchell across the line in this prestigious event were Kruseman, Troy Rutherford, Brian Camarillo and Josh Ford. There were four heat races run Saturday night with wins going to Cliff Warren in the Extreme Muffler Heat One, Cory Kruseman in the Joie of Seating Heat Two, Brian Camarillo in the BR Motorsport Heat Three and Matt Mitchell in the Steve Watt enterprises Heat Four. The 12 lap Semi Main went to Johnathon Henry. At the end of the night Greg Taylor maintains a 230 point lead over Josh Ford in the season point race.

Ventura Raceway wants to thank all the vendors who contributed to make this the largest first place check in VRA Sprint Car history. Matt Mitchell's name is the first name on the Vendor's Cup perpetual trophy. We hope that this is the first of many Vendor's Cup Races to be held in future seasons.

VRA Midgets also were on the card Saturday night with many drivers doing dual duty. Johnathon Henry jumped out to an early lead and led the first 6 laps only to be passed by Jake Swanson who led then led until lap 26 when a flying Brian Camarillo passed him and went on to take the win. Camarillo roared around the top of he track thrilling the crowd with his daring style. The crowd roared when he took the lead and cheered loudly at his victory. Following him across the line were Jake Swanson, his brother Brent Camarillo, Cory Kruseman and Robby Josett. There were three heat races run with wins going to
Cory Kruseman in the West Evans Motorsports Heat One, Sean Dodenhoff in the Joie of Seating Heat Two and Brian Camarillo in Heat Three. Cory Kruseman, with his 2nd place finish keeps him 180 points ahead of Robby Josett in the point battle.

The Ford Focus Midgets were also on hand Saturday night. There was a small field of four Junior Focus racers but the night was very special for first time winner and past VRA Junior Midget Champion Brennan Rogers. He took the 12 lap feature win over Bradley Morris, Parker Colston and Katlynn Leer. Their one heat race went to Leer. In Regular Ford Focus competition, the heat race went to Bradley Morris and the main went to Casey Martinez, followed by Nick Carlson, Morris, Daniel Williams and Katlynn Leer.

IMCA Modifieds returned to action after the Ventura County FAIR event and it was point leader Aaron Rodarte showing his rear bumper to the field tasking the 20 lap main event win over brother and past champion Austin Rodarte, Josh Vogt, Steve Bulpitt and Rob Green. Dennis Eckert finished 4th in the event on track but failed post race tech. Two heats were run with wins going to Vogt in heat one and Austin Rodarte in heat two. With two races left in the IMCA schedule for 2011, Aaron Rodarte leads Brad Prows by 18 points.

The final competitors Saturday night were our VRA Go Karts. Johnny Conley took his second win in a row leading all 20 laps. finishing second through fifth were David Pankratz, Josh Ford, Jimmy May and Kenny Byers JR. They ran two heats with wins going to Ashley Hazleton and James Locy.
