Darryn Saenz Demo Derby Winner on Thursday Night

Ventura CA - August 4-5, 2010..... Boosted by Pepsi Dollar Day at the FAIR, standing room only was the reality of the first night of the Ventura Raceway/Ventura County Fair Motorsports night number one on August 4. With a totally full grandstand, VRA Dwarf Cars, VRA Kids Classes, USAC Focus and Young Guns and a 14 car Demolition Derby the night proved to be one to remember for those in attendance.

VRA Dwarf Cars were on hand with 40 cars racing in two classes, Seniors and Prows. The Seniors ran three heat races and a 20 lap main event. Heat wins went to Kent Benson, George Calvo and Tom Stephens Sr. The main event went to Bill VanPraag followed by Calvo, Gordon Brand, Geroge Sack and Glen Monk. The Pro Class also ran three heats with wins going to Curt Cook, Ray Estrada and Errol Sack. Their 20 lap main went to Lars Wolfe followed by Angel Figueroa, Ray Estrada, Eric Alton and Steven Benson. Both feature winners took home a first place check for $600.00 for their efforts.

USAC Ford Focus Midgets were on hand on day one with 10 cars signed in. The two heat race wins went to Andrew Mulhearn and Wally Pankratz. Their 20 lap feature went to Jake Blackhurst who was followed by Cody Kershaw, Nick Carlson, Wally Pankratz and Bruce Douglass.

USAC Young Guns saw a popular first time winner when Colin Henry took the win in their 20 lap main event. Jared Blondel, Alex Jacobson, Jake Blackhurst and Daniel Williams followed him to the line. They ran one heat race, with the win going to Casey Martinez.

VRA Kids classes were on hand racing in three classes, Pistons, Super Chargers and Junior Midgets. In Junior Midgets, heat race wins went to Riley Helland and Devin McCree. Their 20 lap feature went to Austin Figuerroa with McCree, Helland, Cody Majors and Brennan Rogers following to the checkered flag. In Mini Dwarf Pistons, the win went to Conner Wakim with Ryan Butcher, Destyn Garcia, Logan Rutherford and J D Brown following. Their two heat races went to Rutherford and Wakim. In Mini Dwarf Superchargers, the main event went to Nick Velasquez followed by Cameron McCauley, Joseph Magana, Cole Wakim and Oliver Blades.

The final event for night one was a 14 car Demolition Derby that paid $1,000 to the last car running. The event went to Eric Mulay who pounded his way to victory over Travis Riley, Walter VanWiingerdan, Michael Stanford and Billy O.

Night two was a night that saw IMCA Modified racers, VRA Sport Compacts, VRA Go Karts and another Demolition Derby.

IMCA Modifieds were on hand with 27 cars in the pits all vying for the 20 starting spots in the feature that would pay $850 to win. Four heat races were run with wins going to Nick Sylvester, Aaron Rodarte, Austin Rodarte and Mike Kirby. A semi main event was needed to settle the 20 car starting line up. The win went to Daylan Coffey. Joining Coffey and moving to the feature was Joey Yantis, Troy Morris Jr, and Damon Redman. The 30 lap feature was a wild one that saw a great deal of attrition in the early laps. Seven cars were gone by the fifth lap leaving the remaining thirteen to race to the checker. At the end it was pole sitter Danny Lauer repeating his 2009 FAIR win. Following Lauer to the line were Randy Brown, Brad Prows, Mike Kirby and Larry Hood.

VRA Sport Compacts ran their event that paid $600 to the winner. Two heats were run with wins going to Brandon Reta and Trevor Fitzgibbon. Fitzgibbon went on to take the 20 lap feature and the purse check. He was followed across the line by Cody Greiman, Brent Underwood, Michaela Stanton and Zach Peterson. Brandon Reta finished the feature in 4th on the track but his car failed post race tech inspection.

VRA Go Karts raced in three heat races with wins going to David Pankratz, Brody Roa and Ashley Hazleton. The 20 lap feature went to Cody Nigh follwed by Brody Roa, Troy Rutherford, Richard Renken and Jimmy May.

The final event for night one was a 13 car Demolition Derby that paid $1,000 to the last car running. The event went to Darren Saenz who bashed all the other cars into submission on his way to victory over Billy O, Evan Thrasher, Kody Harper and Cole Pitchford.
