Ventura Raceway was taken over in 1978 by Jim Naylor, who has successfully managed and promoted the venue. In 2003 Naylor as faced with the surrounding community wanting to shut the facility down as the residential infrastructure grew ever closer to surrounding the fairgrounds. Residents had now grown tired of hearing the noise produced from the race track at night. After countless court hearings, it became clear that drastic changes had to take place; cut the noise level produced during race events, and adjust the time schedule of race events to end them earlier in the evening.
Necessity being the mother of invention, Jim Naylor hooked up with Dan Wheeler owner of Extreme Muffler Technologies of Simi Valley, California.
