Ventura Raceway was in action Saturday night June 11, as it continued its 2016 racing season, with a great night of exciting short track racing. Despite smaller than usual car counts, in some classes, competition was very close and hard fought from top to bottom in each event.
Saturday night June 4, saw a great night of short track racing, as Ventura Raceway continued its 2016 season. With the first 2016 Battle at the Beach highlighting the night, race fans were there to see who would take the first win in this series within a series that will crown the King of the Beach in November.
The USAC Midgets returned to Ventura Raceway Saturday night May 21, and quite a show it was! Twenty-eight of these high speed machines raced around Ventura’s 1/5 mile clay oval in front of a crowd who showed their appreciation for their return.
