Racing across the board was outstanding in our adult and kids classes.

There were three heat races run with wins going to Brian Camarillo, Austin DeBlauw and Jimmy Crawford. Their 30 lap main event was a great race with Brandon Thomson leading lap 1-7. Luke Boles then led lap 8-29 only to have Jimmy Crawford pass, him as he bobbled, coming out of turn two on the last lap. Crawford then went on to take the checkered flag and the $1,500 winners check. Boles finished second followed by new point leader Austin DeBlauw, Guy Woodward and Brandon Thomson. The first ARP race winner of 2014, Cory Kruseman suffered problems early in the race and fell out on lap 8. After 11 events in the season Austin DeBlauw now leads Kyle Smith by 20 points in the season point race...

VRA Senior Sprints continued their season with one heat race for the eight cars in the pits. last race winner Chris Meredith took the heat race win. The twenty lap feature was a very strong performance by defending series champion Clif Warren, who took the lead from Wally Pankratz on lap 8 and went on to take the win. Pankratz finished second followed by Ed Schwarz, Steve Brown and Chris Meredith. After 10 races Clif Warren holds a 325 point lead over Chris Meredith.

In IMCA Modified action the racing was fast and furious with 18 modifieds taking the green flag for their 20 lap main event. The race was an excellent race that saw 17 of the 18 starters finish on the lead lap. The race saw Andrew Phipps drive his best race of the season, leading many laps only to have 2013 champion Robbie Witwer get by him and take the win. Following Witwer to the finish line were Andrew Phipps, Donald Houghton, Josh Vogt and Jack Parker. Three heat races were run with wins going to Donald Houghton, Jack Parker and Dennis Eckert.. After eight 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 Senior point leader Mike Lewis and Brian Saxton in the Pros. Both drivers drove excellent races to take their wins. In the Seniors Lewis was followed by Bob Kaufman, Curt Cook Steve Addison and David Conely. Their heat race win went to Bill VanPraag. In the Pros, Brian Saxton took the win over a hard charging Hannah Mayhew in their 20 lap main. His win puts him in the point lead over Johhn Conley who missed Saturday's event. After Saxton and Mayhew, Ricky Lewis finished third followed by Chase Lippert and Thomas Velasquez. The Pros ran three heat races with wins going to Hannah Mayhew, Tommy Welasquez and Jason Horton.
