Owner Bio: Darryl SoteraDarryl Sotera, age 59, a road maintenance worker, bought his Ventura for $500 in 1988. He liked the X-body Pontiac because it was unusual, and to this day he has not seen many '75 Venturas. He drag raced in the late '60s and early '70s and returned to the hobby in the mid '90s. He and his wife, Alaine, have owned five Pontiacs in the past: several late-model Grand Ams and his favorite, an '01 Grand Prix GT. He says the most fun he's had in his Ventura race car was his participation in the Ames Tri-Power Pontiac Nationals for the last six years, and he has been on the bracket teams at Thompson Raceway Park and Quaker City Raceway. He tells HPP, "Racing runs in the family. One of my sons and two of my nephews have drag cars, but I'm the lucky one. I have the only Pontiac."
