Ransomville drivers Ryan Susice and Erick Rudolph took home the twin features for the Krown Undercoating 358 Modifieds at Ransomville Speedway on Friday night. Dave DiPietro II from North Tonawanda won his first career feature event for the Investors Service Sportsman, while Jaren Israel from Ransomville picked up the win in the KiPo Chevrolet Street Stocks. Cameron Tuttle from Wilson won his first Stevenson’s Hardware Novice Sportsman feature of the season, and Chad Desso from Wilson picked up his first win of the season in the Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers.

The first Krown Undercoating 358 Modified feature of the night was the make-up event from May 12 and was led to the green flag by Chad Brachmann and Kenny Wills, with Wills leading Lap 1. Brachmann took the lead from Wills following a Lap 9 caution, with Rudolph taking second away from Wills on Lap 22 and Susice taking third with seven laps remaining. After Rudolph slowed coming off Turn 4 while running second with two to go and Brachmann had issues under another late-race caution and went to the pits, Susice drove away from Tyler Willard to pick up the win. Jeff McGinnis, Tommy Flannigan and Kenny Wills completed the top five.

In the second feature, McGinnis and Gary Lindberg led the field to the green flag with Lindberg showing the way as Rudolph battled McGinnis for second.

Rudolph went on to score the win in the BCL Racing entry for his first win at Ransomville in 2017. Lindberg would finish in second followed by McGinnis, Susice, and Brachmann.
