On a cool, breezy Saturday night, May 5th, fans at Ventura Raceway were treated to a great night of short track racing, as the Amsoil USAC/CRA 410 Sprint Cars headlined the show. VRA Dwarf Cars and California Lightning Sprints were also there to complete a full night of exciting racing action.
Ventura Raceway’s second night of racing action was another exciting night for all divisions. The fans in attendance saw close, hard fought competition from the opening heats to the final main events. VRA Dwarf Cars, VRA Hobby Stocks, VRA Focus. IMCA Modifieds and the VRA Sprint Cars, who opened their 2018 season, were on hand to compete for points in the new season.
After over a month of delays due to weather and Fairgrounds activities, Ventura Raceway finally was able to begin its 2018 racing season. The delay in opening was worth the wait as six divisions put on a night of outstanding racing action for the good crowd in attendance. On a beautiful spring night, the drivers began their quest for points that will lead to series championships when the season ends in October.
