Ransomville Mourns the Loss of Ron Branch


On behalf of management and staff, Ransomville Speedway would like to wish our condolences to the family and friends of Ron Branch.  Ron (pictured center above) was always a familiar face in the pits as a car owner for many Sportsman drivers, including Mike Jeffery, Don Anderson, Rich Williams, Mark Feor, and Roy Susice.  He will missed.



16th Annual Hangover 150!





Ransomville, NY Friday, October 30th, 2015 The 58th annual racing season officially came to a conclusion last Friday night as some two hundred guests gathered to honor the 2015 Champions along with many others.
               Ryan Susice of Ransomville, NY was crowned the Champion in the FinditQuick.com 358 Modifieds after a very consistent season aided him to top the field.  Winning by just eleven points over veteran Danny Johnson, Susice claimed his first of what will most likely be many Modified titles.  Susice had just one victory in the 2015 season but finished in the top five all but twice in Regular points events.  With six wins Johnson finished in the runner up position while Mr. Smallblock Pete Bicknell rounded out the top three.
               As has become customary, the Investors Services Sportsman title came down to the final night as three drivers vied for the title.   When the final checkered flew, not one but two drivers stood as co-champions as a tie in points between Cody McPherson and James Michael Friesen was the result.  It was only the third time in Ransomville history and first since 1996 that a tie was recorded.   For McPherson it would be his first Ransomville title.  What is most impressive is it came in his very first regular season in competition at the mile dirt oval.  McPherson enjoyed five wins, two of them coming in the Grit Series and DIRTcar Sportsman Series.  James Michael Friesen would claim his second championship in the  division,  enjoying some five victories as well and fourteen top three finishes.   Jesse Cotriss claimed the third place points finish with four wins to his credit and seven additional top five finishes.
               Brandon Sherwood of Sanborn, NY is a veteran of the Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks ranks.  Always a contender, the prestigious track title was something that had eluded him until this year.  Taking his very first Championship, Sherwood did so by claiming three wins and an impressive six second place finishes.  After destroying his racer in a mid-season meeting with the wall, Mark Loveland was able to rebound and finish in the runner up position.  Mike Short came home third in points after some dismal luck kept him from possibly winning his first championship.
               The Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman Champion is Austin Susice.  Susice made the switch from 4 Bangers to Sportsman racing seem easy.  Enjoying four wins and six additional top three finishes, Susice came into the final event with John Conklin mathematically still in the hunt.  Susice would take the championship with Conklin settling for second.  Conklin also made the move from 4 Banger racing into the open wheel ranks in 2015, picking up three wins.  Tony Muscato enjoyed three wins as well and earned himself a third place points finish.
               Chris Leone is no stranger to the title ranks.  Picking up yet another track championship in the Gippsters Collision 4 Banger ranks, this driver has proven to be one of the most competitive on a weekly basis. Leone won three of the last four points events solidifying himself as the 2015 Champ.  Ryan Plante had one victory on the season and ten additional top five finishes to claim the runner up position.  Steve Matson of Ransomville, NY finished in third with two wins and three top five finishes.
               The 2015 Ray MacIver Sportsmanship Award went to Pat Dell.  When Mark Lovelands Street Stock was absolutely destroyed in a mid-season meeting with the wall, it looked as if any chance of a top points finish, much less the change of racing again soon was gone.  However Dell was quick to step in and lend him his back up racer.  This gesture kept Mark in the championship hunt in which he ultimately finished second.  This selfless assistance to a fellow racer earned Dell the 2015 honors.
               The Rookie of the Year honors are awarded to the highest finishing rookies in a division.  This year the honor went to Investors Services Sportsman campaigner Brett Senek whom finished 12th in points.  Kenny Wills took home the honors in the FinditQuick.com Modified class.
               Tommy Flannigan was awarded the Most Improved Modified Driver honors if he hadnt missed the first two weeks of the season, he may have been in the hunt for the track title.  As it was, he scored seven top five finishes and an impressive third place at the Battle at the Border.
               After claiming his first win in the Investors Services Sportsman ranks, this years Most Improved Driver award went to James Sweeting.  Not only did he pick up that memorable first win, he also did it in his rookie year coming home just a few points shy of claiming that title as well.
               Ryan Stephenson was honored as the Most Improved Street Stock driver.  After finding some success in the Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers, Ryan moved up to the Street Stock ranks.  Stephenson would lead feature laps in 2015, enjoy two third place finishes and finished seventh in points.
               The National Maintenance Contracting Corporation Most Popular Driver Awards are voted on by the fans using weekly ballots found in the Ransomville Laps program.  Taking this years honors were Jeff McGinnis (FinditQuick.com Modifieds), Jesse Cotriss (Investors Services Sportsman), Randy Zimmerman (Ki-Po Chevrolet SS), Dave DiPietro II (Van Raine Construction Novice Sportsman), and Justin McKay (Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers).
               The Best Appearing Awards are the most difficult for judges to pick.  There are so many very deserving drivers and crew who meet the criteria. This years awards went to Jeff McGinnis (FinditQuick.com Modifieds), Jesse Cotriss and James Sweeting (Investors Services Sportsman), Mark Loveland (Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks), and Justin McKay (Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers).
               The Trevor Wilkins Hard Charger Award is presented to a Sportsman driver who exhibits the desire, commitment, and competitive nature as the late Trevor Wilkins.  This years recipient consistently worked from the back of the field to the front.  Having picked up key wins in the past, this was his first full season at Ransomville but yet he looked like a season veteran of the Big R.  This years Trevor Wilkins Hard Charger Award went to Cody McPherson.
               The Hard Luck Award one nobody wants to win.  After a decent start to the season, including a trip to victory lane, his season came to a literal crashing halt at the end of June with a vicious flip into the front stretch moat.  After a hospital stay and some at home recuperation, he was back at the track on Friday night-although he couldnt race.  This years recipient was Mike Hossfeld.
               The 2015 Pat Spina Mechanic of the Year award went to Pat OKeefe.  How can I flip thee  - let me count the ways.   Repairing, rebuilding, and maintaining 4 Bangers took up most of his time this summer.  OKeefe was instrumental in fielding two cars weekly his and his son Brendens.  Not only did he have to maintain them, but he had to rebuild and replace the #154 driven by his son after he flipped four times.
               The Owner of the Year honors went to Guy McPherson.  It is difficult enough to field one competitive car on a weekly basis, but when you have a pair of top notch racing operations in your fold, thats some commitment of time and resources.  Guy McPherson aided his son Tyler to a fifth place points finish in the head-lining Modified ranks and his other son Cody to his first championship in the Sportsman at Ransomville.
               Danny Johnson..what more needs to be said?  This veteran can never be counted out.  Despite some dismal luck in 2015 at the Big R, he led the track win column with six victories and in the history of the track is amongst those at the top of the all-time feature win list.  By virtue of his successes, Danny was awarded the Performance Award for 2015.
               A new category was established this year simply put the Nice Guy awards.  As any promoter will tell you, having the drivers as ambassadors of your speedway is the best advertising you can get.  Well these two teams exemplify this positive approach to racing at Ransomville, even at times when the chips are down.    The first team to be awarded this honor was the Cotriss/Fearby team.  Always professional be it to other racers, officials, or to fans.  The driver always has a smile on his face and often volunteers for 50/50 sell-offs. They help boost track exposure via their own social media pages, are amongst the first to sponsor laps of special events, and this year aided in bringing new sponsorship to the track.
               The second team to receive the honor is a household name in Ransomville when it comes to racing.  The McGinnis team!  Even after some tough situations, they will move on with a can-do attitude.  Family members have volunteered to pitch in with ground maintenance, and the team is always sharing Speedway posts and boosting the track exposure via their social network.  Their camping parties at the track have become legendary and they welcome any and all fans, racers, and officials to stop by and join their fun.  Ransomville Speedway is, without question, very lucky to have these two teams in their fold on a weekly basis.
               The Key Player!  This award was established to recognize the behind the scenes efforts on part of those who make racing at Ransomville Speedway successful.  Our Key Player, Pete Bicknell, was honored for everything he has done over his many years of involvement in the sport to benefit not just Ransomville Speedway, but motorsports around the region in general.  He has established himself as one of the all-time great drivers in the region, but one little statistic most people dont realize is that from his very first Ransomville Speedway start in the early 70s, he has not missed a single race night for his class he has had perfect attendance for 42 years!
               Ryan Susices development as a racer has been witnessed by a lot of people at Ransomville Speedway.  His dad was a competitive racer for many years, and the apple didnt fall far from the tree.  He established himself as a youngster as a competitive go-kart racer, and made the move to stock cars seem effortless, with championship seasons in the Street Stocks and Sportsman.  Upon his move to the Modifieds, his learning curve was fast.  It all came together for him this season with his first ever Modified title, all while he was expanding his racing horizons with competitive outings in a Sprint Car and TQ Midget.  By virtue of his 2015 successes, Susice was awarded the highly prestigious Driver of the Year Honors.
               In addition to receiving their Championship Awards from the Speedway, this year top guys were also honored by Firths Jewelers with their traditional honors.  Each champion received a commemorative Champions Watch while their significant others received a Racers Bracelet. 
               In addition the 50/50 girls Jenn, Jessica, and Katie also received Zable earring as a special thank you from the Speedway as did the Beautification crew April and Lynda.
               Feature winner plaques were also awarded  to the following; Chris Leone, Brendan OKeefe, Ashley Harbison, Mike Hossfeld, Brian Monahan Jr., Chad Lederhouse, Dave Dussault, Pat OKeefe, Ryan Plante, Austin Susice, John Conklin, Anthony Muscato, Darrell Borkenhagen, Mike Short, Brandon Sherwood, Mark Loveland, Jesse Johnston, Ken Camidge, Jaren Israel, Pat Dell, Cody McPherson, James Michael Friesen, Jesse Cotriss, Greg Martin, Brett Martin, James Sweeting, Mike Williams, James Henry, Justin Sharp, Danny Johnson, Erick Rudolph, Phil Vigneri Jr., Chad Brachmann, Jeff McGinnis, Pete Bicknell, and Ryan Susice.
