Timmons Rolls In Ventura Sprint

VENTURA, Calif. — Taking control from Kyle Edwards on the 12th lap, Ryan Timmons scored his first USAC West Coast Sprint Car win of the season Saturday at Ventura Raceway.

Piloting the family owned No. 29t Timmons Auto & Truck Repair / Red Line Oil Maxim, Timmons won the 30-lap feature over newly crowned champion D.J. Johnson, Caden Sarale, Troy Rutherford and hard charger Jarrett Soares, who earned rookie-of-the-year honors.

Making his first start of the year, Sarale led the first three laps from the pole position. With changing track conditions, Edwards slipped by the second-generation driver for the top spot.

As most drivers found the bottom groove to their liking, Edwards searched for another line to attack the speedway.

Racing from third, Timmons took advantage of an Edwards miscue to grab the top spot nine laps later. Once out front, the night belonged to the former rookie of the year who earned the fifth series win of his career.

Steve Hix posted the first Woodland Auto Display fast time award of his career.

The finish:

Feature (30 laps, With Starting Positions): 1. Ryan Timmons (3), 2. D.J. Johnson (4), 3. Caden Sarale (1), 4. Troy Rutherford (5), 5. Jarrett Soares (10), 6. Kyle Edwards (2), 7. Steve Hix (6), 8. Trent Carter (13), 9. Bruce Douglass (14), 10. Jake Hodges (9), 11. James Herrera (15), 12. Troy DeGaton (12), 13. Tanner Boul (8), 14. Joey Bishop (11), 15. Hannah Mayhew (16).
