Greg Taylor wins the Bandit-VRA Championship

Greg Taylor wins the Bandit-VRA Challenge Championship over Josh Ford and Jesse Mack.

Troy Rutherford won the battle, but Greg Taylor won the war
Troy Rutherford won the battle, but Greg Taylor won the war as the final VRA/Bandit Grand Slam Series Race of 2007 took place last Saturday night October 27. As Rutherford took his fourth win in the last five Ventura Raceway events, Taylor clinched his first Grand Slam Series Championship with a third place finish in the thirty lap feature. Josh Ford finished second in the race and second in the series 14 points behind Taylor. Johnathon Henry finished fourth in the feature and third in the series. 2007 Bandit Jesse Mack had a bad night Saturday when a rock knocked a fitting off his brake line and he went out on lap 2. He finished the series in fourth in points due to excellent finished in earlier competition at Bakersfield and Santa Maria.

Saturday’s event was another great race night with heat wins going to Luis Espinoza, Kevin Kierce, Jesse Mack and Greg Taylor. Derek Buckley took the win in the 12 lap Semi Main. With the threat of rain all around the raceway, the races were lined up by regular VRA Pill Pick format rather than by qualifications. This allowed us to get the entire race in, in a more timely fashion. The 30 lap feature was a race that saw Troy Rutherford once again go to the front to take the win. Several early yellow flags took out some competitors in the first 9 laps. Once the race got rolling in a clean manner, Rutherford led a hard charging Josh Ford, who came from 9th to 2nd across the finish line. Finishing third through fifth were Taylor, Henry and Luis Espinoza. Taylor’s third place finish gives him a 500 point lead over Kevin Kierce going into the final two events of the year. He only needs to score 25 points on November 10, to clinch his first VRA Championship
