STEWART FRIESEN COMES FROM LAST TO FIRST TO POST THE WIN IN THE ALEX FRIEESN SUMMER NATIONALS SDS EVENT AT RANSOMVILLE SPEEDWAY; JAMES MICHAEL AND CHRIS LEONE ALSO COLLECT WINS

Ransomville, NY Friday, September 2nd, 2015 Four weeks after the originally scheduled event, the 31st Alex Friesen Summer Nationals took center stage last Wednesday night at Ransomville Speedway. Despite the event having to be rescheduled due to weather, the small hamlet of Ransomville, NY swelled in capacity as race fans flocked to the Western New York clay oval to watch the best of the best in Big Block Modified action.  A great field of thirty-four strong entertained guests and sponsors with some great racing.
               Stewart Friesen of Sprakers, NY captured an emotional win last Wednesday night aboard the 100 lap Alex Friesen Summer Nationals Super DIRTcar Series. It was Friesens second win in the event held in memory and honor of his late uncle Alex Friesen.  Piloting the Atlas Paving #66 entry, Friesen would advance to second early on but suffer a flat tire resulting in a trip pitside.  Marred deep in the field, Friesen began his trek back to the front.  With the aid of several late caution periods, Friesen would advance to the runner up position and set his sights on race leader Tim Fuller.  With just a few laps remaining, Friesen would take the lead on the highside of turn four and take the very popular win.  To win this event is so special, commented Friesen. I have to thank my mom and dad, the entire Atlas crew, and my wife Jessica.  It has certainly been an amazing season for Friesen who will also become a dad in December.
               After leading from the drop of the green, Fuller would hold on and finish second in his DC Rauscher/Manodnock sponsored #19.  Pat Ward claimed the third position followed by Erick Rudolph and Randy Chrysler.  After blowing a motor during qualifying action aboard the Randy Chrysler owned #21x, Rudolph and crew would head home for his #25 Snyder Industries entry.  After starting scratch on the field, Rudolph would finish a solid fourth.
               James Michael Friesen notched win number three on the year aboard his Manchester Cable sponsored #52.  Friesen took the lead away from Justin Sharp on lap fifteen of the twenty-five lap main and quickly pulled away from the remainder of the field.  Friesen would put some distance between himself and the rest of the field as he cruised to the checker.  Sharp, Greg Martin, Mike Williams, and Matt Farnham rounded out the top five.  Friesen came into the night fourteen markers behind points leader Cody McPherson. Friesens win and McPhersons misfortune of being caught up in an early race mishap allowed Friesen to move in and unofficially take the lead.  This Friday, Sept 4th will be the final points event of the season for the Sportsman class with the 2015 champion being crowned after the twenty-five lap main.
               Chris Leone of Niagara Falls, NY captured the win in the Gippsters Collision 4 Banger feataure main.  Leone took the lead at the drop of the green and would go uncontested as he led all twelve circuits to claim his third win of the season.  The defending champion is certainly in championship form as his win further extended his points lead for the 2015 title.  Three point races remain for the 4 cylinder class. Ryan Plante came home in second followed by Steve Matson, Dave Dussault, and Pat OKeefe.

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. Mullen took the lead away from points leader Braden Foley on lap six and maintained it through the lap fifteen checker. 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.
