RANSOMVILLE, NY – Third generation driver Erick Rudolph from Ransomville, NY was the winner of the Krown Undercoating Modified feature on JetPort Lounge and Niagara’s Lazy Lakes Camping Resort Night at the Ransomville Speedway on a sultry Friday evening. Chris Burek from Wilson, NY won his first Investors Service Sportsman feature of the season. Robbie Johnston from Lockport, NY won his second feature of the season for the Stevenson’s Hardware Novice Sportsman. The Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers feature was called due to rain after five laps were completed.
Kenny Wills and Allan Wills brought the Krown Undercoating 358 Modifieds to the green flag for their 30 lap feature with Kenny Wills getting the lead over his cousin Allan. Off a lap one restart, “The Ransomville Renegade” Ryan Susice would take the lead over Wills with Tommy Flannigan, Scott George and Erick Rudolph racing inside the top five. Flannigan and Rudolph would both get around George to move into third and fourth respectively and would battle with each other for the third position and at the same time reeling in Kenny Wills for second. As Wills, Flannigan, and Rudolph all battled for second, this allowed race leader Ryan Susice to increase his lead. Rudolph would pass both Flannigan and Wills to move into second place on lap 16 and would begin his chase of race leader Susice. Meanwhile, “Mr. Small Block” Pete Bicknell passed Scott George to take over fifth place and George spun, in turn, one with nine laps to go to bring out the races first caution on lap 21. On the restart, Rudolph went to the outside of Susice and the two Ransomville racers went at it for the lead with the duo battling hard for the lead and the win. Kenny Wills slowed on the main straightaway to bring out the caution on lap 24. The six lap shootout would see Rudolph take off in the lead in his BlueCross BlueShield of WNY, BBL Racing number 25, and would pull away from Susice and Bicknell to score his second win of the season.
