We are diligently working on making the racing the best it can be for drivers, crews, patrons and sponsors stated Ransomville General Manager Jenn Martin. We are working on a new weekday date to make up the May 19th racing card so that Season Ticket holders, as well as the fans, will not lose a show. The make-up show will be announced as soon as possible after working with the drivers to come up a date Martin added.
