Tom Stevens Named Track Photographer at Ransomville Speedway

RANSOMVILLE, NY (January 11, 2018) Long-time race fan and photographer Tom Stevens has been named the new track photographer at the Ransomville Speedway. Tom will be taking pictures of the action on both Thursday nights for the go-kart program as well as the weekly action on Friday nights at the Big R!

I started bringing my small camera to the races 10 years ago and posted some pictures on Dirt Track Digest, Stevens said. Mike and George over at DTD asked if I wanted to contribute every week so I upgraded my equipment and have been taking pictures ever since Stevens continued.

One of Toms favorite moments behind the lens took place at Ransomville. The first was a photo-finish between Danny Johnson and Erick Rudolph. My lens was pointed right at the start-finish line between Danny and Erick and it was a great race, Tom said. Rudolph would get the win on that Friday night over The Doctor by 0.009 of a second. That night, Ryan Susice would win his first track championship.

My favorite race that I photographed was the last Super DIRT Week at the Fairgrounds. The whole week was amazing and so different than any other race I have covered. I was just glad I got the opportunity to cover the last one held there Tom added.

If you are looking for a summer job, the Ransomville Speedway is looking for you! Positions are available from the concession stand to officials and more. We are also looking for the 2018 Miss Ransomville. For those interested in being Miss Ransomville, you must be available all weekend long during the annual Ransomville Speedway Car Show March 23-25 at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls USA and be available for every race night at Ransomville Speedway.

A Renewed focus on Safety Hi-Lights Ransomville's Street Stock / 4 Banger Meeting!

A healthy group of participants came out to go over the 2018 rules packages for the Ki-Po Motors Street Stocks Class and the Gippsters Collision 4 Banger Class. 

Among the topics discussed included the following:

Following DIRTs lead, It was announced that Ransomville Speedway will mandate the use of head and neck restraint (commonly referred to as HANS Devices) for the 2018 season in all classes.  The rule will mirror the 2018 DIRT Rulebook:

The head and neck restraint must be SFI 38.1 approved and display a legible and valid SFI 38.1 label. 

We applaud DIRTs efforts to protect drivers and adding head and neck restraint devices into our rulebook is a big step in that direction. commented Ransomville General Manager Jennifer Martin.  Anything that helps makes our drivers safer is a welcome addition to our rulebook.meeting!

Attention all Drivers!

 

Attention all drivers using VP Fuel, we just received a call from New York State, and we wanted to inform you that they may come to Speedway to check on your fuel. You can NOT be using any VP Fuel containing MTBE.
 

Here is the excerpt from NYS:
Section 192-g. Methyl tertiary butyl ether; prohibited. * (Effective January 1, 2004)
 

1. For the purposes of this section, "gasoline" shall mean any fuel sold for use in motor vehicles and motor vehicle engines, and commonly or commercially known or sold as gasoline.
