(July 21, 2014, Cliff Morgan, Ventura Raceway) Saturday night July 19 was a special night at Ventura Raceway. On that night USAC Western 360 Sprint Cars were here to challenge our own VRA Sprints. The racing was some of the best seen at our 1/5 mile facility in many seasons. With the two sanctioning body Sprint Cars headlining the night the fans in attendance witnessed outstanding racing action. Racing in the other classes racing that night was also exciting and hard fought.

Saturday featured the first time VRA 360 Sprints and USAC Western 360 Sprints have raced in a joint event. Those in attendance were not disappointed as the divers and crews of the 27 sprint cars in attendance put on some of the best racing seen at Ventura in several seasons. From the opening heats to the end of the 30 lap feature the racing was fast, furious and exciting. Three heat races were contested with wins going to Ryan Bernal in heat one, Landon Hurst in heat two and New Zealand star Michael Pickens in heat three. The larger than normal car count necessitated a 13 car, 12 lap, semi main. In that race Kyle Smith took the win. He and Rick Hendrix, Cody Majors, Kevin Barnes, George Morris and Tony Everhart all transferred to the 30 lap main event. The 22 car main event saw Ryan Bernal and Matt Mitchell start on the front row. Mitchell jumped out front and led the first 16 laps, only to be passed by Micheal Pickens on lap 17. Pickens held off Jake Swanson with a right rear tire going soft until lap25 when Swanson passed him for the lead. Swanson went on to take his first sprint car win at Ventura and the $1,500 winners check. Following Swanson to the finish line were Ryan Bernal, Michael Pickens, Troy Rutherford and Danny Faria Jr.

VRA Senior Sprints continued their season with one heat race for the six cars in the pits. Ed Schwarz took the heat race win. The twenty lap feature was another very strong performance by defending series champion Clif Warren, who took the lead from Mike Cook on lap 2 and went on to take the win. Cook finished second followed by Chris Meredith Case Montgomery and Brian Grosenheider. After 11 races Clif Warren holds the season point lead over Chris Meredith.

In IMCA Modified action the racing was again fast and furious with 14 modifieds taking the green flag for their 20 lap main event. The race was an excellent race that saw Damom Redman lead the first 13 laps. He was passed by race winner Austin Rodarte on ladp14, who then led to the checkered flag. Following Austin Rodarte to the finish line were point leader Josh Vogt, Andrew Phipps, Damom Redman and Dave Phipps. Two heat races were run with wins going to Josh Vogt and Austin Rodarte. After nine races in the 2014 season, Josh Vogt leads Robbie Witwer by 30 points and Jack Parker by 40 points in the point race.
These racers and many more will be in action on Wednesday July 30, at the Ventura County Fair event.

In VRA Mod Lite racing, Jeffrey Fry took his first ever win in their 20 lap main event. Fry took the lead on lap 6 from Ricky Lewis and led to the finish. He was followed across the line by Mike Neal, Ricky Lewis, Dave Dotson and Kris Kordner. Mike Neal took the one heat race.
Ricky Lewis leads Jeffrey Fry by 100 points after 7 races in 2014.

Focus Midget action saw Tanner Bole take his first Focus victory over a field of 10 Focus Midget racers in t heir 20 lap feature. Following Bole to the line were Gary Howard, Dylan Ito, Courtney Crone and Mike Lewis making his Focus debut. Brennan Rogers and Dylan Ito took heart race wins. Zack Bogner now leads in the season point race by 155 points over Ashley Hazleton.

VRA Go Karts ran on the big track Saturday night. Justin Raper took the win over Kenny Byers Jr., Henry Ito, Dylan Ito, and Brendan McCarthy. Raper also took their one heat race win. After 6 races Byers holds a 10 point lead over Raper in the season long point race.
