Ransomville is very proud to announce a 4 race $100.00 to win series for all 5 go-kart points classes! We would really like to thank our loyal supporters for stepping up and helping us provide an all new program for our karters commented Ransomville General Manager Jennifer Martin. Karting is an integral part of our entire program and we want to thank the racers with some better paying races.

Thanks to our great marketing partners, the races will feature the same entry fees as the standard weekly karting series! The races will all be $100 to win, with the normal purse going to positions 2-4. This adds an additional $2000 into the entire season long purse with no additional entry fees!  Ransomville could not do this without the support of many great partners: Matt Farnham Racing (Junior 1), Tim Phillips Garage (Junior 2), Buds Apple Juice (Junior 3), Jerry Gradl Motors (Senior Lite) and 61 Racing (Senior Heavy). The 2018 go-kart schedule is available online at www.ransomvillespeedway.com under the go-kart icon.

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.
 

2. No person shall import into, or sell, dispense or offer for sale any gasoline which contains methyl tertiary butyl ether.
