Tommy Flannigan won the main event for the Krown Undercoating Modifieds on Crop Production Services, Snyder Industries, Barker Lion’s Club and Firth’s Jewelers night at Ransomville Speedway on Friday evening. Greg Martin won his first Investors Service Sportsman feature of the season, while Jake Stefanski scored his second win of the season for the KiPo Chevrolet Street Stocks. Ashley Blech scored her first win of the season in the Gippsters Collision 4 Bangers and Kyle Wendt scored his third win of the season in the Stevenson’s Hardware Novice Sportsman.
John Smith and Flannigan brought the Modifieds to the green flag for their 30-lap main event with Flannigan leading early and taking a four-second lead over the field by Lap 12. Flannigan led every lap to score his first win of the season.
Joey Zimmerman and Mike Kramarz led the Street Stocks to the green flag for their 20-lap feature with Kramarz jumping into the early race lead, but Stefanski took the lead away from Kramarz on Lap 11. Kramarz would reel in Stefanski in the late going, but Stefanski held on for his second win of the season.
Orval Harris and Bubby Pawlak brought the Novice Sportsman to the green flag with Pawlak taking the lead early. Orval spun in Turn 2 to bring out the first caution, and Kyle Wendt took the lead on the restart and built a lead of over two seconds. Wendt slowed on the front stretch to bring out the caution with five laps remaining, giving Robbie Johnston the lead on the restart, but Wendt would drive his way back through the field and would go on to score the win, his third of the season.
