The first ARP Battle at the Beach for VRA 360 Sprint Cars will take place on Saturday June 4, at Ventura Raceway. This special race will feature a $1,500 to win purse. This ongoing series within a series will see all the best VRA and visiting drivers going for the higher winner’s purse as well as the coveted ARP Battle at the Beach custom trophy. Last year 2015 VRA Sprint Champion Guy Woodward took the title of King of the Beach with the highest accrued point total in the races held. Tristian Guardino took the win at the last Battle at the Beach race in October. We expect to see both drivers at the June 4, race. Other drivers expected to compete are Troy Rutherford, who won the USAC 410 race here on May 7, VRA point leader Rick Hendrix, 2014 VRA Champion Kyle Smith and many other fine sprint car drivers from across California.
Also racing on June 4 will be the VRA Senior Sprints, IMCA Modifieds, VRA Dwarf Cars and the winged California Lightning Sprints. These classes will add to the excitement that is always present on Battle at the Beach race nights.
