Ashley Utts Returns to Pony Stock Action at Ventura

VENTURA (April 14, 2004) -- Teenaged stock car racer Ashley Utts will return to Ventura Raceway Saturday as the track's Pony Stock division returns to action for the first time in April.

Utts is a 17-year-old junior at Oaks Christian High School. She is 16th in the Pony Stock standings with 170 points, but she ranks fourth among drivers with only two starts of a possible three this season. Utts missed one race due to a volleyball commitment.

"It'll be fun to get back out there," Utts said. "My volleyball club team has had a lot of tournaments lately, so I've been pretty busy with that and my school work. I really feel the need for speed."

Utts is an honor student at Oaks Christian.

Utts drives the Custom Printing-sponsored Ford Mustang. She represents the third generation in her family to drive a racecar, following her grandfather and both parents. Utts Racing has a total of 50 main event victories scored at racetracks around the Southwestern states.
