Camarillo's Gary Curtis has turned in some impressive performance's in the Mini Stock series. Curtis has 15 main event victories, with nine on the oval track and six in figure 8 racing. In addition, he has four heat race and two trophy dash wins and five quick times.

Curtis leads with 1,485 points in the Mini Stock division followed closely by Rock Ake, Jr. of Moorpark with 1,330. Ventura's Marty Desbrow and Chris Rasche are third and fourth with 1,115 and 1,025 points.
