Ventura Raceway concluded its 2015
season Saturday night October 31, with
one of the largest fields of sprint cars
this season. This fact along with five
other classes in attendance gave the
fans on hand an exciting night of all
out racing action as drivers vied to
become 2015 series champions. With the
final 2015 Committee to Support Ventura
Raceway Race headlining the night, the
fans in attendance witnessed great
racing all night long.
Saturday night featured the final
Committee to Support Ventura Raceway
race for 2015. Twenty VRA and visiting
sprint car drivers were on hand to go
for the added winners purse of $1,500
that goes to the winner of each of these
special events. There were three heat
races run with wins going to Kyle
Edwards in heat one, Kyle Smith in heat
two and Trent Williams in heat three.
The 30 lap main event was a fast and
furious event that saw Cody Majors jump
out front for the first 13 laps. He was
passed by Troy Rutherford on lap 14.
Rutherford led laps 14 through 18 until
Majors retook the lead on lap 19 and led
all the way to the final turn on lap 30
when rising star Tristan Guardino made a
great move to pass Majors and take the
win. The race within a race for the 2015
season championship went to Guy Woodward
who's 9th place finish was good enough
to give him the championship by 30
points over 2014 series champ Kyle Smith
who finished third on the night.
VRA Senior Sprints wrapped up their
season with a strong field of 11 Senior
Sprints on hand. Two heats were run with
Eddie Tafoya taking heat one and Chris
Meredith taking heat two. Wally Pankratz
took a hard flip in heat two that caused
him to go to the hospital for a check
up. He returned later in the evening and
appeared to be ok but done for the
night. The main event was won by Chris
Meredith over Ed Schwarz, Mike Cook,
Eddie Tafoya and Ron Bach.

Conley won the 20 lap Pro Race.

Our final class Saturday was our VRA Go
Karts. The night was a battle between

out on top as 2015 champion. In the end
it was Raper on top claiming the main
event win and the championship.
