RANSOMVILLE SPEEDWAY 2014 AWARDS BANQUET HONORED CHAMPIONS AND MANY OTHERS FOR THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS

 

2014 RANSOMVILLE DRIVER OF THE YEAR DANNY JOHNSON
Ransomville, NY – Friday, November 14th, 2014 – Approximately two hundred and twenty guests gathered for the 2014 awards and dinner banquet last Friday night. It was a night of celebration, one of coming together as competitors, friends, and family.

Danny Johnson celebrated his eighth track championship in the Finditquick.com 358 Modifieds. As has become customary at the Big R, the points title came down to the final night as Johnson, Erick Rudolph, and Ryan Susice vied for the top spot. Johnson’s strong performance in the month of August along with his four victories would result in the eighth title for the veteran who has been racing at Ransomville Speedway for 36 years. Rudolph settled for second while Susice rounded out the top three.

Greg Martin of Wilson, NY enjoyed his first ever track title. Coming in the Investor’s Service Company Sportsman ranks – Martin would also need the final week to claim his championship over James Michael Friesen and defending champion Jesse Cotriss. These three were involved in a tight points battle through-out the season swapping the lead on several occasions. Friesen finished second in points with seven victories on the year while Cotriss rounded out the top three.

Brian Lonneville of Sanborn, NY had a stellar season as he notched his first track title before the final night of racing! Lonneville enjoyed consistent top five finishes which aided him to the top of the points charts. Winning by over 100 points, Lonneville topped rookie Brett Senek and Mike Short.

Chris Leone claimed his second track championship in the four cylinder ranks – this one in the Gippster’s Collision 4 Bangers. Leone graced victory lane twice in 2014 taking the title by twenty markers over Jim Stone and Steve Matson.

The first Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman title was won by Dan Heschke. The Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman division made its debut in 2014 as a stepping stone for those looking to graduate into the open wheel ranks. Approximately thirty different drivers took the opportunity to give open wheel a try while several made it a weekly affair. Mike Martin and Rick Blech rounded out the top three in points

The top fifteen in FinditQuick.com Modifieds, Investor’s Service Company Sportsman, Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks, and Gippster’s Collision 4 Bangers received point fund checks while the top seven in Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman were honored. In addition – FinditQuick.com Modifieds, Investor’s Service Company Sportsman, and Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks received bonus checks compliments of the sponsors. Many thanks to these fine sponsors for supporting our weekly racers.
