“The Tornado” Banks $2,000 at Ransomville Modified Special


RANSOMVILLE, NY (May 25, 2018) “The Tornado” Tommy Flannigan from St. Catharines, Ontario was victorious and scored $2,000 for his efforts after winning the 40-lap special for the Krown Undercoating 358 Modifieds this past Friday night at the Ransomville Speedway as Snyder Industries presented the racing program. “Oh Henry” James Henry from Niagara Falls, NY won his first Investors Service Sportsman feature of the season.

Second-generation driver Matt Hornquist from Eden, NY won his first feature of the season in the Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers. David Fingerlow from North Tonawanda, NY would score his second consecutive victory in the Stevenson’s Hardware Novice Sportsman.

Qualifying heat winners Allan Wills and the “Tornado” Tommy Flannigan led the field of Krown Undercoating Modifieds to the green flag for their 40-lap special with Wills in the lead. Working their way through the field early on were Ryan Susice, Erick Rudolph, and “The Doctor” Danny Johnson. Mike Williams spun in turn four to bring out the races’ first caution. The yellow flag would immediately fly just one lap later as Kenny Wills spun, in turn, one and John Smith making contact. On the restart, Flannigan would take the lead, just as Rudolph and Susice would go three wide with Jeff McGinnis to move into the top five.

After a pair of cautions that plagued the start of the main event for the Investors Service Sportsman, “Oh Henry” James Henry would pull away from Robbie Johnston, Dustin Gorhan, Derrick Borkenhagen, and Jonathan Reid in the 25-lap feature go. Borkenhagen would battle with Gorhan for third as point’s leader Brett Senek would reel in Reid for fifth place. Henry would stretch his lead by a full-straightaway over Johnston at the halfway mark. “Oh Henry” would hit lap traffic with 10 laps remaining and he would go on to score the win, his first of the season, making it the third different winner in the division.

Pat Dell and the “Racing Grandpa” Randy Zimmerman led the field of KiPo Chevrolet Street Stocks to the green flag for their feature event with Dell in the lead over “Showtime” Jaren Israel. The lead trio of Dell, Israel, and Cory Sawyer were leading last week’s feature winner Pete Stefanski and Ken Camidge early on. Past divisional champion Brandon Sherwood came to a stop on the front stretch to bring out the caution on lap five. On the restart, Israel would take lead as Dell was challenged by Stefanski for second place.
