(July 31, 2014, Cliff Morgan, Ventura Raceway) The 2014 Ventura County Fair Motorsports night once again provided racing action for the fans in attendance July 30. With the best in IMCA Modified open wheel stock cars, VRA Dwarf Cars, Hobby Stocks and a Demolition Derby, fans saw some great racing action.

Wednesday night saw 30 IMCA Modifieds signed in for competition. All the best drivers in Southern California and a few from further away were there to go for the $1,000 winners check and the prestige that goes to a Fair winner. There were four heat races held with wins going to Jack Parker, Kyle Heckman, Austin Rodarte and Troy Morris Jr. They then ran a 14 car 12 lap semi main that transferred 6 cars to the feature for the 30 lap main event. Taking the semi main win was Joshua Vogt. The 22 main event cars and drivers then ran a 30 lap feature that was wild and, action filled from lap one to lap 30. Danny Lauer led all 30 laps but he was under constant pressure from Cody Laney who finished second. they were followed to the line by Dylan Coffee, Troy Morris Jr., Larry Hood, Josh Vogt, Brad Pounds, Aaron Rodarte, Austin Rodarte and Kyle Heckman. The hard charger of the race went to Ventura Raceway IMCA point leader, Josh Vogt who started 17 and finished fifth.

Thirty VRA Pro Dwarf Cars also competed on Wednesday night. Pro action saw four heat races run with wins going to Curt Cook in heat one, Tim Conley taking heat two, Bob Brown Jr., taking heat three and Hannah Mayhew took heat four. The 20 lap main event went to Tim Conley followed by Johnathan Henry, David Taft, VRA season point leader Brian Saxton, Mike Neal and Reece Shelton. The race saw three leaders as Johnny Coney led laps1-4, Bob Brown led laps 5-12 and eventual winner Tin Conley took the lead on lap 13 and went on to take the win

The final group racing on Wednesday were our VRA Hobby Stocks. These full sized, V8 powered, American Stock Cars put on an exciting night of racing. Visiting Santa Maria driver Doug Thorton took the 20 lap main event over 2013 VRA Champion Scott Dinger, @014 point leader Mike Stanford, David Heurung and Sam Garvin. Two heat races were run with wins going to David Heurung and Scott Dinger.

To end the night a 8 car Demolition Derby was contested. On this night the banging and crashing lasted 8 minutes with Eric Mulay as the last car running taking the $1,500 winners check. Finishing second through fifth were Billy "O" Owezeski,, Vince Bledsoe, Darren Loe and Jake Bledsoe.

We also want to thank all the competitors, crews and fans who came out to make the FAIR event one of the best ever. Ventura Raceway will now take a couple of weeks off until August 23 when we return to racing action after the FAIR has completed its run. On that night VRA Sprint Cars will contest the next Battle At The Beach Race. Also competing on that night will be, VRA Senior Sprints, VRA Dwarf Cars, IMCA Modifieds, VRA Sport Compacts and our VRA Kids Classes.
