The Hy-Tech Concrete DIRTcar Sportsman and the Kevin’s Carpet Cleaning Novice Sportsman will be having their traditional end of the season shootout. “With the support of both divisions all season long and with all the calls and emails from drivers, crews, and marketing partners to add the class to the schedule, we have made the decision to add them back to the program,” speedway management said. It was previously announced that the division was off the schedule for the September 15 program.
The RUSH Late Models will be making their first appearance at Ransomville since 2021.
