RANSOMVILLE, NEW YORK_It took an additional week, but Ransomville Speedway finally got its King of the Hill Weekend in the books last Friday night after rain washed out the second day of the weekend two weeks ago.

Investors Service Company occupied the Ransomville Speedway VIP Towers after spotty rain dominated the afternoon hours. Waiting out the rain, Ransomville ended its 2016 season with just two rainouts on the year. A good crowd filled the Ransomville Speedway grandstands for the season finale.

Matt Farnham of Tonawanda, NY made a statement on his championship season, winning the 100 lap Investors Service Company Sportsman feature. Farnham would win his third feature of the 2016 season.

The last yellow flag of the race would wave on lap 79 when Steve Lewis Jr would slow under the starters stand. With Cotriss right behind Farnham for the restart, Farnham was just too fast speeding out to a 1.29 second lead on Cotriss.
