For Immediate Release

SEXTON/GATLIN RACING HEADED TO POWRi CALIFORNIA LIGHTNING SPRINT CAR RACE AT VENTURA!

(Lakeside, CA, May 31, 2019) Fresh off a third-place finish two weeks ago at Barona, two-time series champion Brent Sexton will lead his sons Dalton and Grant into round #7 of the 2019 POWRi California Lightning Sprint Car Series this Saturday night, June 1st, at the Ventura Raceway.  Spectator gates will open at 3:00 P.M. and the first race will be at 5:30.

After a humbling start to the 2019 campaign, family patriarch Brent has seen his year turn around the last two races.  When the CLS was last at Ventura on May 8th, he notched a season-best eighth-place finish.  He then topped that with the third at Barona.  The two finishes rocketed the Tennessee native from the mid-20s in the championship standings all the way up to 15th.

Grant, the youngest of the two Sexton siblings and the 2018 CLS Rookie of the Year, has shaken off the disappointment of his almost win two weeks ago and, like his father, will be back at the scene of his best CLS finish of the year.  At the first race of 2019 at the ocean side oval on March 13th, the 14-year-old placed seventh in the 25-lap main event.  He enters Saturday’s race, 12th, which is three spots ahead of his father in the standings.

Dalton racked up his best two finishes of the current campaign with a fifth at Bakersfield on April 20th and a sixth at Ventura on May 4th.  He is and has been all season long, the highest ranking of the family trio in the championship standings.  He currently sits in the ninth spot heading into Saturday’s race. 

The Lakeside, California based racing clan hopes to keep an unusual streak intact on Saturday.  All three family members have qualified in the top 10 over the last three races.

The month of June will be busy for Sexton/Gatlin Racing.  In addition to Saturday’s race at Ventura, the team will contest the POWRi California Lightning Sprint Car race at the Bakersfield Speedway on June 15th and an Open Competition race at Barona on June 29th. 

Fans who would like to watch the Sextons in action this Saturday can find the track on the Ventura County Fairgrounds at 10 W. Harbor Boulevard (93001).  For more information, visit the track website at http://venturaraceway.com/ or call the office at (805) 648-RACE.
