Ventura Raceway was in action Saturday night July 6th, with a race program featuring VRA Sprints, VRA Senior Sprints, WMR/Focus Midgets, Hobby Stocks and Lightning Sprints. Once again a small field of VRA Sprints and Senior Sprints had the two classes combined for their 20 lap Main event. Five cars were signed in to each class for the night's action. The race was a hard fought battle in each of the two classes with Chris Meredith taking the Senior win over Wally Pankratz, Mike Cook, Mike English and Mark Sheppard. In the VRA Sprint portion of the event, Jeff Fillingame took his first ever win over Rick Hendrix, Brent Owens, Gage Rucker and Geoffrey Strole. The event was a strange one with Strole flipping on the warm up lap and Fillingame flipping at the checkered flag as he crossed the finish line. Fillingame emerged from his damaged racer to do his winners interview, expressing his joy in winning his first sprint car race ever. Heat race wins in these two classes went to Geoffrey Strole in Sprints and Wally Pankratz in Senior Sprints.

Saturday night, June 29th, saw an evening of exciting open wheel and stock car racing at Ventura Raceway. The drivers in five car classes were on hand to continue the season long point battle in each class. VRA Sprint Cars had a small car count of five cars. Rick Hendrix took the 30 lap feature over Kyle Smith,Tyler Edwards, Wally Pankratz and Tom Hendricks. They ran one heat with the win being taken by Kyle Smith. The small car count in Senior Sprints as well, caused them to run as a part of the Sprint car main. Scored separately, the Senior win went to Wally Pankrratz over Chris Meredith, Russell Martin and Paul Mirick. Mirick had a very hard crash on lap one, when Charlie Butcher and Mirick came into contact on the front straight with Mirick flipping wildly down the front straight.
