For Immediate Release


(Lakeside, CA, August 22, 2019) The youngest members of Sexton/Gatlin Racing, brothers Dalton and Grant Sexton, will return to action this Saturday when the California Lightning Sprint Car Series returns to its home track, the Ventura Raceway. 

Saturday’s race will be the fourth appearance of 2019 for the talented teenagers at the beautiful track located on the beach in Ventura.  Dalton, 17, has two sixth-place finishes and an 11th at the facility this year.  Grant’s best finish there was a seventh on March 23rd.  In his last two races at the near half-century-old facility, he has come home 16th and 17th.

Two weeks ago, at the last CLS race at the Barona Speedway, Dalton came from 15th to finish 7th.  Grant took a tumble earlier in the race and was finished for the night.

Thus far in CLS action in 2019, Grant’s second-place finish at Santa Maria on July 28th and father Brent’s second-place at Barona on August 10th, have been the best results for the family.  Dalton’s best CLS finish this season was a fifth at Bakersfield on April 20th. 

Heading into Saturday’s race, Dalton is 12th in CLS points and Grant is 15th.  After this week’s event, the teens will get one week off before returning to Ventura on September 7th. 

Spectator gates will open at 3:00 P.M. with racing at 5:00 on Saturday.  For fans who would like to see the Sexton teens in action, they can find the track on the Ventura County Fairgrounds at 10 W. Harbor Boulevard (93001).  The track website is and the office phone number is (805) 648-RACE.
