GEORGE, JOHNSTON AND STEFANSKI CAPTURE KING OF THE HILL WINS AT RANSOMVILLE SPEEDWAY
 

Ransomville, NY Saturday, September 13th The 2014 season came to an official close last weekend with the running of the annual King of the Hill two day show.  Mother Nature ended the season as she started it by challenging track maintenance with wet conditions through early afternoon.   Blue skies would prevail by race time as Investors Services and LOE Trailers presented the King of the Hill twin 100s.

Scott George of Wilson, NY picked up his second King of the Hill 100 win in as many years as he topped the Investors Services Sportsman field last Saturday night.  George took the lead away from James Henry on lap fifty and proceeded to lead the remaining fifty circuits.  George would contend with a hard charging Jesse Cotriss with thirty to go but it would go all for naught as George was able to extend his lead by a half a straight away in the closing laps.  Piloting his Shawnee Services sponsored #26, George collected his first win of the 2014 season.  I want to thank my crew, sponsors, and family for all they do, commented a very happy George.  The car was great tonight.

Cotriss would hold on for second aboard his HFI sponsored #55c.   After leading the first fifty laps, James Henry would settle for third followed by Matt Farnham and Kevin Wills.  A total of twenty-one strong took the initial green with sixteen still running at the checkered.  Only three cautions slowed the pace. 

Jesse Johnston of Wilson, NY took top honors in the $1000 to WIN King of the Hill Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stock 100.  In a rare occurrence in the one hundred lap season finale, Johnston would lead all one hundred circuits on his way to the victory. Johnston would have to contend with heavy pressure from track champion Brian Lonneville through the mid way portion and Brandon Sherwood in the late stages.  Driving the preferred top lane, Johnston would keep the pair at bay and collect his biggest win of his career aboard his Tim Hortons sponsored #43. Jesse was all smiles as he exited his racer and was joined by an ecstatic mom, dad, and brother. 

Sherwood looked to the inside of Johnston on the final circuit bringing the fans to their feet!  Sherwood would settle for second followed by Lonneville, Alex Morris, and Ken Camidge. A hand full of cautions slowed the pace along with one red flag.  Chase Matteson took a very hard hit into the front stretch concrete wall on lap 94.  Chase was ok but his racer suffered substantial damage. 

Pete Stefanski of Wheatfield, NY captured the win in the twenty lap Parts Plus ProStreet feature main event.  Stefanski took the lead from the outside front row starting position and quickly established himself as the man to beat.  Butch Zimmerman was able to keep Stefanski in his sights but was unable to mount a challenge as the laps clicked off.  Stefanski took the win aboard his Sunrise Racing sponsored #2 machine.  Zimmerman held on for second followed by Mike Welch, Pat Hobbs, and Marc Minutolo. 

Austin Susice picked up the win in the 4/6 Cylinder Enduro.

Many thanks to our fans, drivers, crew, employees, and sponsors for a tremendous 2014 season.  See everyone January 1st for the 15th annual Hangover 150
