Ransomville, NY Friday, August 15th- It was a chilly night at the Big R as a total of ninety-eight cars filled the pit area.  Pepsi and Creekside Sales and Service presented a Full Card of Racing which included the FinditQuick.com Modifieds, Investors Services Sportsman, KiPo Chevrolet Street Stocks, Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers, and Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman plus an Autograph Night and Ladies Race.
Danny Johnson of Rochester, NY captured his second win of the season in the FinditQuick.com Modified division.  In what came down to one of the most exciting finishes of the season, Johnson used a move to the inside of defending champion Pete Bicknell on the final lap to take over the point position and the win in the thirty lap main.  Chad Brachmann and Erick Rudolph were also in the hunt as the four car battle brought fans to the edge of their seats.  By virtue of his win, Johnson would take over the points lead by just one marker over Ryan Susice and Erick Rudolph who are tied for second.  Just two points separate the top three with two point shows remaining.  This could not be scripted any better!!  Bicknell held on to finish second followed by Brachmann, Rudolph and Susice.  
Jesse Cotriss of Akron, NY took top honors for the third time in 2014 aboard the Investors Services Sportsman division.  The defending champion used a move to the inside of Justin Sharp on lap eighteen and quickly pulled away from the field.  Piloting his Fearbys Auto sponsored #55c, Cotriss unofficially took over the points lead by three markers over James Michael Friesen. Boyd MacTavish advanced to second followed by Justin Sharp, Greg Martin, and James Henry.
Brian Lonneville of Sanborn, NY took top honors last Friday night aboard the twenty lap Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stock division.  Winning his second of the season, Lonnvilles win further extended his leads in the points battle as he looks poised to win his first track title.  Lonneville took the lead away from Dave Stozlenberg Jr. on lap eight and maintained it through the final distance. Lonnevilles consistent finishes through-out the season has aided him in his quest to win the title.  He currently holds close to a one hundred point lead over three time winner Kyle Wendt.  Ken Camidge came home in the second position followed by Brett Senek, Jesse Johnston, and Alex Morris.
Austin Susice won his third of the season in the Gippsters Collision 4 Banger division.  Susice took the lead away from past Fireball champion Jim Stone on an early race restart and quickly pulled away from the field.  A late race caution would bunch up the field but it would be Susice hanging on to the top spot.  Stone held on for second followed by Chris Leone,  Mike Pahl, and Justin McKay.
Mike Martin of Lockport, NY captured his second win of the season in the Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman twelve lap main.  Martin took the lead away from Dan Heschke with just a couple of laps remaining.  Heschke held on for second followed by James Sweeting, Randy Chrysler Jr., and Jim Stone.

Ransomville fans, drivers, staff, and sponsors joined in presenting a sea of orange in remembrance of Kevin Ward whom lost his life the week prior at the Canandaigua Motorsports Park.  In addition to many in attendance wearing orange, patrons of the pit area lined the backstretch and joined those in the grandstands with a moment of silence for Kevin.  The Modified feature would find the outside pole position left empty for Kevin during the initial pace lap.  During victory lane, one attendee mentioned how fitting it was that an orange car won the headlining divisions feature main.  R.I.P #13.
