Once again the racing at Ventura Raceway was outstanding in all divisions.

The win is Templeman's third win of the season. With 20 cars in the feature he had to come from his sixth place starting position to take the win. Following Templeman and Camarillo across the line were Kyle Smith, Tom Hendricks and Rick Hendrix, who was back in competition at Ventura for the first time since a hard accident last season. There were three heat races run with wins going to Clark Templeman in the Extreme Muffler Heat One, Clif Warren in the LRB Manufacturing Heat Two and Kyle Smith in the BR Motorsports Heat Three. Kyle Smith continues to lead in the season point race by 160 over Templeman after nine races.

VRA Senior Sprints were in action with the 20 lap feature win going top Clif Warren over Wally Pankratz Bruce Douglass and Mike Cook. Warren's win was hard fought as he took the lead from Pankratz on lap 7 and went on to take the win. Taking Senior heat race wins were Victor Davis in the Spin Tech Mufflers Heat One and Clif Warren in the LRB Manufacturing Heat Two. Warren now leads the point race by 30 over Davis.

VRA Dwarf Cars were on hand running in two divisions, Seniors and Pros. In the Seniors, the 20 lap feature win went to Rick Lapka with Walter Boyd, Keith Vondersaar, Bob Kauffman and Tom Stephens Sr following him across the finish line. They ran two heat races with the wins going to Tom Stephens Sr and Rick Lapka. In Pro action the main event started 24 cars with the win going to first time winner Craig Clement over Cody Majors, Darren Brown, Mathew Hicks and Curt Cook. They ran three heat races with wins going to Randy Gordon, Mathew Hicks and Hannah Mayhew. After last Saturday's action, Ray Estrada leads Luke Boles by 80 in Pro points and in Senior points, Bill VanPraag leads by 50 over Tom Stephens Sr.

Cody Nigh took the win in VRA Go Karts over Matt Jones, Ashley Hazelton, and Steven Ito. Their two heat races went to Cody Nigh and Ashley Hazelton. Since moving to the bigger track the go kart racing has been exciting and fast paced.

The final group racing Saturday night was the VRA Focus Midget Class. The twenty lap feature went to Cory Elliott who took the lead from the pole and was never headed. Following him across the line were, Wally Pankratz, Cole Custer, Trevor Cooper and Austin Blair. The class ran one heat race with the win going to Wally Pankratz.
