MCGINNIS, BILLS, BANSMER, BOLAM, PHILLIPS, MULLEN, AND ANSTETT CAPTURE GO-KART FEATURE WINS

Ransomville, NY Thursday, August 27, 2015 The 2015 season has been a great one for the Little R Go-Kart club. Only two rain-outs to date allowing for one of the better seasons as of late.
This past Thursdays weather was a beautiful late summer evening. A total of fifty-four drivers signed in for competition including four new racers. In the Investors Services Novice class the win in the first ten lap event went to Wyatt McGinnis. McGinnis took the lead away from Austin Zimmerman on lap two and held it the remaining distance. Brayden James finished in second followed by Zimmerman and Anthony Pearson. The second ten lap event was won by Brayden Bills. Bills also took the lead on lap two and would maintain it through the checker. JJ Bailey, Reese Rutherford, Daniel Johnston, and Jocelyn Just rounded out the field.
Jacob Bansmer won his seventh of the season in the Slack Karts Junior I ranks. Bansmer would lead all fifteen circuits enroute to the big win. Greenley George stayed glued to the back bumper of Bansmer but would be unable to complete the pass. George finished second followed by Brenden Wallace, Anthony Pollow, Paul Lassman, Abby Castile, and Tyler MacLeod.
Alexis Bolam won her first Coppins Service Center Junior II feature main! Bolam was very competitive through-out the night having enjoyed two great qualifying heat finishes. Bolam would apply pressure to multi-time feature winner Kyle Phillips and make the pass on lap four. Although Phillips would mount a challenge a few times, Bolam would maintain the top spot and take the win. Phillips finished second followed by Matt Krull, Morgan Tucker, and Robbie Johnston.
Kyle Phillips notched his fourth win of the year in the Western District Process Services Junior III ranks. Phillips took control at the drop of the green and kept both Dylan Duhow and Joshua Hansen at bay for the win. Hansen and Duhow would swap the runner up position a few times with Hansen ahead at the checker. Duhow, Trevor Wright, Michael Carmer, Jordan Moden, Kyle Joseph, Randy Giroux, Noah Coppins, and Keirstan Farina rounded out the field.
Alyssa Mullen took top honors in the Tim Phillips Garage Senior Lite fifteen lap main.

Brad Dohow advanced from last to post second at the finish followed by Kayla Joseph, Jeff Chapman, Gary Gow, Eric Veihdeffer, Tim Richmond, Robert Henning, James Foley, Brian Monahan Jr., Avery Coppins, Charlotte Booth, Braden Foley, and Zachary Moden.

ANNUAL KING OF THE HILL EVENT AT RANSOMVILLE SPEEDWAY CHANGES FORMAT;

$1500 TO WIN TWIN 75S FOR SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19TH

Ransomville, NY Thursday, August 20, 2015 With the end of the season just around the corner, the management team at Ransomville Speedway took a hard look at the traditional season ending two day event.  In the economic interest of the drivers, we have elected to make it a one day show on Saturday, September 19th rather than the two day show ran in previous years, commented Co-Promoter Jamie Friesen.  Less laps for a bigger purse will save the teams financially and hopefully increase the car count for Saturdays event.
               Investors Services and L.O.E. Trailer Sales will present an action packed day of racing on Saturday, September 19th to complete the 2015 season.  Slated for competition are; Investors Services Sportsman $1500 to Win 75 Laps, Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks $1500 to Win 75 Laps, Parts Plus ProStock Series $500 to Win 25 Laps, Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers 12 Laps and Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman 15 Laps.  The champions in both the Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers and Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman will be crowned on Saturday as well.  Fridays program has been cancelled.
               The drivers talked and we listened, said PR Director Tana Robinson. The King of the Hill event has become a great tradition at the speedway.  We certainly did not want to see that change however with the increasing costs of everything we thought change was in order.  Between the increased purse, lap money, and potential added bonus awards this years event is sure to help us end the 2015 season on a big note!   Each Ki-Po Chevrolet KOH SS heat winner will receive a FREE American Racer tire and each Investors Services Sportsman heat winner will receive a FREE Hoosier tire compliments of Ransomville Speedway and Hoosier Tire.
               Gates will open on Saturday, September 19th at 4:30 pm with racing slated for 6 pm.   Grandstand admission in US Funds will be $12 for adults, $10 for students (13-17) and senior citizens (60 plus), $6 kids 8-12, 7 and under and Free. Additional information can be obtained by calling the speedway at 716-791-3602 or by email at raceransomville@aol.com.

 

 

 

The 2015 Alex Friesen Summer Nationals has been re-scheduled for
Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015!
 
Ransomville, NY Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 All day sunshine gave way to clouds and late afternoon rain showers forcing officials to pull the plug last Tuesday on the Alex Friesen Summer Nationals Super DIRTcar Big Block Modified Series.   DIRTcar officials and Ransomville Speedway management remained hopeful after the rain stopped just past 6 pm.  Unfortunately it returned less than an hour later forcing the postponement. We were watching the radar and progress of the last storm passing through, commented PR Director Tana Robinson. We were right on the edge, but unfortunately it clipped us enough to put us way behind schedule.  With it being a week night and taking into consideration the neighbors and everyone who had to work on Wednesday, we felt it best at that point to reschedule.  It proved to be the right call as light showers would pass through the area just past 9 pm once again.
               The event has been rescheduled for Wednesday, September 2nd.   The Super DIRTcar Big Block Modified stars will return to take on the very stout Ransomville Speedway 358 Modified field.  Those in attendance prior to the rain-out were point leader Matt Sheppard, Billy Decker, Brett Hearn, Stewart Friesen, Larry Wight, Gary Tomkins and more.  Look for all of these drivers to return in early September for the 31st annual event.   All rain-checks from Tuesday, August 4th will be honored.  For those unable to return, please call the office to make other arrangements.  716-791-3602.
               In addition to the Big Block Modified Series, a full card of Investors Services Sportman and Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers is slated.  Young Explosives will return as well with awesome fireworks planned.  Gates will open at 4:30 pm, Timed Hotlaps will begin at 7 pm for the Big Block Modified Super DIRTcar Series.  For additional information, please visit the event page at www.ransomvillespeedway.com or on our facebook page Ransomville Speedway.
               Taking a look at the remaining schedule finds five weeks of FinditQuick.com Modified action remaining while all other divisions will go through September 19th.  Point chases are still up for grabs in all classes with the Investors Service Sportsman and Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks being very close. For the latest update please see the point standings on our website.
