(August 26th, 2013, Cliff Morgan, Ventura Raceway) OXNARD, CA - Ventura Raceway got back to racing Saturday August 24 with another night of exciting short track racing as the racers returned to action after a three week break as the Ventura County Fair had its run. Once again fans and teams were treated to fast and furious racing on Ventura's red clay oval track.

Guy Woodward returned to VRA action and went on to take the 30 lap feature over hard charging Rick Hendrix, Tom Hendricks, Josh Lakatos and Bruce Douglass, who did everything they could to try to catch him. Woodward started outside front row and chased Hendrix for the first 20 laps. He moved to the front of the 14 car field on lap 21 and went on to take his second VRA Sprint Car win. Two heat races were run with wins being taken by Greg Taylor in heat one and Josh Lakatos in heat two. The night's racing ended with Guy Woodward increasing his point lead to 55 points over Tom Hendricks.

Two heat races were run with the wins going to Randy Thornell in heat one and Dennis Eckert in heat two. Witwer and Prows came into the night’s event tied in points. Witwer’s second place finish gave him a six point advantage over Prows, who finished 8th in the feature. The man who’s dominated IMCA racing thus far, Josh Vogt had a season worst 12th place finish after contact with Jack Parker on the final lap. Vogt is third in points, 13 back of Witwer.
