Ventura CRA

From high up on the hill looking down to the scenic Ventura seashore, it is amazing.

Terry said smile?

The Dwarfs were the only other class running tonight and that is very unusual.

Ron Bach was out racing his own car.

Jimbo is still working in the pits like always, but looks out of sinc to me since the Kittle Motorsports # 18 was parked. He is doing the same old stuff, but .................

A view down one of the fingers of the pits.

Lance Jennings up to no good in the pits.

An old friend Gale Forester who still gets out to the racing these days.

Ryan Bernal was added to the Ford team for the week. It is temorary, but he did well with a 4th place finish as he ran hard. He has had a hard time finding that perfect ride as this was at least his 3rd different car he has run so far. Such talent doesn't just happen so I hope he grabs a weekly ride to grow more in.

The Gansen boys ran tonight with Chris and Don running 13th and 14th in that order.

Jake Swanson had a good night with fast time, 2nd in his heat and 3rd in the main in the Moosemobile.

This is Youmi Hendrix posing as Rick was off to the drivers meeting. She is his only crewman. He had a flat and finished 16th after an incident on the track.
