The “Greatest Show on Dirt” has run twice at Ransomville. In 1994, “The Buckeye Bullet,” Dave Blaney, won the inaugural visit, leading all 25 laps to score the win in front of a packed house at “The Big R”. The one lap track record was set by “The Wild Child” Jac Haudenschild with a 14.582-second lap around the semi-banked, 1/2-mile dirt oval and an average speed of 123.440 mph. Sammy Swindell finished in second followed by Steve Kinser, Jeff Swindell and Jac Haudenschild. In 1997, Andy Hillenburg went to victory lane, his first win on the season; Blaney finished second with Haudenschild, Donny Schatz and Stevie Smith rounding out the top five. Mark Kinser set the track new one-lap record with a 14.365-second lap. The events scheduled in 1995 and 1996 were rained out.
