The 2016 season saw rookies in all of its divisions stand out. Phil Vigneri III enjoyed some success finishing tenth in points in the Krown Undercoating of Ransomville 358 Modifieds. Vigneri, a second generation driver had some past experience in the Investors Service Company Sportsman. In 2016, Vigneri led several laps against a very tough Krown Undercoating of Ransomville 358 Modified division. Vigneri showed that he belonged in Ransomville Speedways premier class and earned Rookie of the Year status after besting fellow rookie Allan Wills in the points battle. To say these two had their hands full with a field full of veterans would be an understatement. They showed they are part of the bright future of the Krown Undercoating Modifieds.

The Investors Service Company Sportsman had several rookie drivers in the division. Austin Susice of Ransomville was the first rookie to take a feature win this past season in the Sportsman class. Steve Lewis Jr also of Ransomville was a feature winner late in the season. The victory came after Lewis had several top ten finishes. Dave DiPietro of North Tonawanda, NY came close as a rookie, but was held off the victory list in 2016. Other rookies were Noah Walker of North Tonawanda, John Conklin of Niagara Falls, NY and JIm Harbison of Ransomville. While all are very deserving of the honors - the rookie of the year award will go to Austin Susice as the highest finisher in the points among the rookies.

In the Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks they also had several rookies. The one rookie feature winner was Ryan Hoolihan of Sanborn, NY. Based on his points finish - he will be honored with the Rookie of the Year honors at the annual banquet. Other first year drivers in the Street Stocks were Chris Dziomba of North Tonawanda, NY, Matt Tracey of Basom, NY, Zachary George of Wilson, NY and Don Spillman of  Ransomville.  

Vigneri, Susice, and Hoolihan will be honored at the annual award dinner and banquet scheduled for Friday, November 11th at the Ransomville Firehall. The champions in all five divisions along with many specialty award winners will also be honored. Tickets are $40 if purchased by Nov. 4th, $45 after.
