(September 30, 2013, Cliff Morgan, Ventura Raceway) OXNARD, CA - The final night in the 2013 ARP Battle at the Beach proved to be one of the best races seen at Ventura Raceway all season. With 14 top quality midgets starting the feature it was clear to all in attendance that Ronnie Gardner would have a tough time taking another win and repeating as King of the Beach. Gardner started sixth in the feature and had to pass many top VRA and USAC competitors to get to the front. It took him 13 laps to move to the front passing Cody Swanson for the lead. After taking the lead he led to the finish to claim the Battle at the Beach win and his second King of the Beach Title. Following Gardner to the line were Jake Swanson, David Prickett, Cory Kruseman and Trey Marcham. Two heat races were run with wins going to Swanson in Super Shox heat one and Prickett in Schroeder Racing Products heat two

In IMCA action the win went to Robbie Witwer over a field of 10 cars. Witwer's first win of the season clinched his 2013 Ventura Raceway IMCA title. Witwer battled with David Phipps and Josh Vogt to get the win. Following Witwer to the line were Vogt, Phipps, Brad Prows, and Dennis Eckert. The two heat races run Saturday night went to Vogt in heat one and Phipps in heat two. Witwer ended the season 9 points ahead of Brad Prows in the season point race.

VRA Focus Midgets were in attendance Saturday and point leader Brennan Rogers took another win in a hard fought battle with Wally Pankratz and Parker Colston. Rogers took the lead on lap 3 from Darin McCart and then led to the checkered flag ahead of Pankratz, Colston, McCart and Courtney Crone. One heat race was run with the win going to Wally Pankratz. Brennan Rogers continues to lead in the season point race by 115 points over Wally Pankratz.

VRA Mod Lites raced Saturday night and it was another night for Ricky Lewis to lead the field to the checkered flag. Jeffery Fry led the first 11 laps but Lewis passed him on lap 12 and went on to take his seventh win of the season. Following Lewis to the finish were Jeffrey Fry, George Calvo, Dave Dotson and Mike Gilmore. Lewis also took their 8 lap heat race. He leads in the season point race by 125 over Dave Dotson after 8 races.

In Junior Class racing J D Brown took another win in the Superchargers over Sandy Brown and Will Mimms and Zack Chavez took the win in the Pistons over Garrett Egan and Dylan Neal.

Ventura Raceway returns to action next Saturday night October 5, with VRA Sprints, Sr. Sprints, Dwarf Cars, Focus Midgets, NMRA TQ Midgets and Go Karts.
