Ransomville Speedway management recently met with members of the Susice family and will be adding a special race in memory of long time racing supporter John Susice Sr., who passed away in February 2017.
“My uncle did a lot for racers around the area, and we thought it would be great to do something in his memory,” said two-time defending Krown Undercoating of Ransomville 358 Modified champion Ryan Susice.
“John was always a huge Street Stock supporter, so it was a natural fit to have a big Street Stock race in his memory,” said Ransomville Speedway Race Director Jeff Anstett.
The format of the John Susice Sr. Memorial will be a 30-lap feature with a draw to determine starting positions in the heat races and a redraw for the feature event. Rules follow the King of the Hill Street Stock rules which includes meeting Ransomville Street Stock weight. Niagara region tracks Humberstone, Merrittville and Ohsweken rules are legal for this event. All Ransomville Street Stocks members will receive 60 show-up points.
The John Susice Sr. Memorial will pay $400 to win, with $250 for second, $150 for third, $120 for fourth and $100 for fifth. $75, $70, $60, $55 will be given for positions six through nine and $50 will be given for positions 10-24.
Anyone interested in sponsoring a contingency program for the event can contact Ransomville Speedway General Manager Jenn Martin at 716-791-3602 or email@example.com or contact Ryan Susice at 716-534-7298 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The John Susice Sr. Memorial Street Stock event for the KiPo Chevrolet Street Stocks will be part of the racing program presented by the Sunset Bar and Grill that features a full card of Krown Undercoating of Ransomville 358 Modifieds, Investors Services Sportsman, Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers and the Stevenson’s Hardware Novice Sportsman. Also scheduled for that evening will be a Spectator 1-on-1 race. Keep up with the action at www.ransomvillespeedway.com.
