(August 25, 2014, Cliff Morgan, Ventura Raceway) Saturday night August 23, saw one of the best car counts of the last two seasons at Ventura Raceway. With the Third Battle at the Beach for VRA Sprint Cars headlining the night the fans in attendance witnessed great racing all night long. Racing across the board was outstanding in our adult and kids classes. Over 100 cars and drivers were signed into the pit Saturday night.

Saturday night featured the third ARP Battle at the Beach race of 2014. All the top VRA drivers were on hand to go for the very special trophy and added winners purse that goes to the winner of each of these special events. There were three heat races run with wins going to Kyle Smith, Troy Rutherford and Johnathan Henry. Their 30 lap main event was a great race with Jimmy Crawford leading lap 1-4. Troy Rutherford then led lap 5-11 only to have a crash in turn one, between Rutherford, Henry and Sheldon DeBlauw, as the leaders were going through lapped traffic. Crawford then inherited the lead and led laps 12 to 30 and take his second win in this series within a series for VRA Sprint Cars sponsored by ARP. Crawford's win was worth $1,500 along with the special Battle at the Beach trophy. Rick Hendrix finished second followed by Bruce Douglas, Luke Boles and Tom Hendricks. After 13 events in the season Kyle Smith now leads Austin DeBlauw by 155 points in the season point race.

VRA Senior Sprints continued their season with two heat races for the ten cars in the pits. Mike Cook and Gary Howard took the heat race wins. The twenty lap feature was a very strong performance by defending series champion Clif Warren, who took the lead from Wally Pankratz on lap 17 and went on to take the win. Pankratz finished second followed by Steve Brown, Ed Schwarz, and Chris Meredith. After 12 races Clif Warren holds a 415 point lead over Chris Meredith.

In IMCA Modified action the racing was fast and furious with 11 modifieds taking the green flag for their 20 lap main event. The race was an excellent race that saw Josh Vogt come from his 10 place starting position to take the lead on lap 5 from Andrew Phipps and go on to take another win and maintain his season point lead. Following Vogt to the finish line were Brad Prows, Robbie Witwer, Dave Phipps and Dennis Eckert. Two heat races were run with wins going to Josh Vogt and Andrew Phipps. After 12 races in the 2014 season, Josh Vogt leads Robbie Witwer and Jack Parker in the point race.

VRA Dwarf Cars were back in action Saturday with main event wins going to Keith Vondersaar in the Seniors and Johnathan Henry in the Pros. Both drivers drove excellent races to take their wins. In the Seniors Vondersaar was followed by Bob Kaufman, Mike Lewis, Bill VanPraag and David Conlley. Their heat race win went to point leader Mike Lewis. In the Pros, Johnathan Henry took the win over a hard charging Hannah Mayhew in their 20 lap main. After Henry and Mayhew, Johnny Conley, Jason Horton and Eric Moore followed to the finish line.. The Pros ran three heat races with wins going to Hannah Mayhew, Johnny Conley and Brandon Wiley

David Peterson took the win in the Sport Compact class 20 lap main event after on track winner Trenton Morley was DQD in post race tech for not having a muffler on his car at the completion of the race. Peterson's win was as a substitute driver for his son, point leader Zach Peterson who was unable to drive Saturday night. Following Peterson to the finish line were Gary Garvin, Myra Cook, Jeff Long and Scott Olsen.

Focus Midget action saw Ashley Hazleton take a hard fought win over Randi Pankratz in their 20 lap Main Event. Following Hazleton and Pankratz to the line were Justin Raper, Jet Davison and point leader Zac Bogner. Bogner also took their one heat race. Zac now leads in the season point race by 110 points over Ashley Hazleton.

Four Mod Lites were on hand for this weeks action. The win in their 20 lap main event went to Mike Neal over Zack Forster, Tim Varney and point leader Jeffrey Fry. Neal also took their one heat race.

In Junior action Mike Long took another win in the Junior Midgets in their 15 lap feature over Dalton Houghton, Cinnamon Brown and, Sandy Brown. Long also took the win in their one heat race. In Superchrger action, Blake Hendricks took the win over Sandy Brown, J D Brown, Dalton Houghton and Logan Rutherford.

Ventura Raceway will be back in action Saturday night August 30, as we host motorcycle flat track racing.

The racing will feature both regular flat track racers and Speedway Bikes.
