“We are diligently working on making the racing the best it can be for drivers, crews, patrons and sponsors” stated Ransomville General Manager Jenn Martin. “We are working on a new weekday date to make up the May 19th racing card so that Season Ticket holders, as well as the fans, will not lose a show. The make-up show will be announced as soon as possible after working with the drivers to come up a date” Martin added.

“We are still scheduling the double features from the Opening Night rainout to not lose that show either” Martin continued. Double features for the Street Stocks and Novice Sportsman will take place on May 26th. Double features for the Sportsman will be held on June 2nd as part of the Patriot Sprint Tour event.
