For Immediate Release
BRENT SEXTON AND SONS BACK AT THE VENTURA RACEWAY THIS SATURDAY!
(Lakeside, CA, July 5, 2018) Brent Sexton and his teenage sons, Dalton and Grant, will be back in action this Saturday night when the USAC/California Lightning Sprint Cars Series returns to its home track, the Ventura Raceway. It will be the third appearance of the year for the Sexton/Gatlin team at the beachside oval on the Ventura County Fairgrounds.
Going into the race, Brent is the highest ranked “Sexton” in the CLS championship standings. He currently sits second in the title chase and is 72-points out of the top spot. Remarkably, in their first full season in CLS competition, his sons sit ninth and 11th respectively in the points. Grant is the one in ninth and older brother Dalton is 11th. That also ranks them first and second in the “Rookie of the Year” battle. Grant leads the fight for that trophy by a mere 16-points over his brother.
In their first two outings at Ventura this year, Brent has a second and a fifth-place finish. Grant has a seventh and a 12th. The first trip up the coast saw Dalton not start the main event due to wiring and engine problems, but he placed 10th the last time the series was at the track on “Cinco de Mayo.”
Saturday’s race will be the last one in California before Sexton/Gatlin Racing travels to the prestigious 35th Annual Dirt Cup at the Deming Speedway in Everson, Washington on July 19th, 20th and 21st.
Spectator gates at the Ventura Raceway will open at 3:00 P.M. with racing at 5:30 on Saturday. The track is located on the Ventura County Fairgrounds at 10 West Harbor Boulevard in Ventura (93001). The track website is http://venturaraceway.com/ and the track phone number is (805) 648-RACE.
