Niagara Gazette — Ransomville Speedway wrapped up a busy week late Friday, hosting the last of three race cards scheduled within a four-day span. Two of the nights were planned, with the third added to make up for a rain delay earlier in the season.
Newfane resident Scott Kerwin captured his second win of the season in the Mighty Taco Modified division, taking the lead from the start and holding it firmly through the race's 30 laps. Pete Bicknell finished second, while Justin Wright and rivals Ryan Susice and Erick Rudolph rounded out the top five finishers.
Wilson's Chris Burek captured his first checkered flag of the season, winning the feature race in the Investor’s Services Sportsman division. Like Kerwin, Burek took control at the start of the 25-lap race and held it until the finish. Greg Martin finished second, while Justin Sharp took third for his best finish so far this season. James Henry and James Michael Friesen rounded out the top five.
Brian Lonneville of Sanborn became the seventh different winner in the Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stock division, losing his initial lead in the ninth lap but regaining it in the 17th lap. Jaren Israel, who grabbed the lead from Lonneville, fell to third place behind Lonneville and second-place finisher Jake Stefanski. Pat Dell and defending champion Alex Morris completed the top five.
Ashley Harbison of Ransomville captured her first career win in the FinditQuick.com Fireball division, in a feature race rescheduled from Wednesday as the result of rain. Harbison defeated her nearest challenger, Jim Stone, by an estimated ten car lengths. Her brother, Jim Harbison, won the second feature race in the Fireball division.
Austin Susice of Ransomville notched his second win of 2013 aboard the twelve lap Gippster’s Collision 4 Banger main event. Mike Kramarz finished second in the race but took the points lead in the division.
