With just four weeks left prior to the start of the 2016 season, things continue to be busy at Ransomville Speedway.
Race fans are reminded of the Ransomville Speedway car show, Friday through Sunday, April 1-3, at the Eastern Hills Mall in Clarence. Come out and see what will be on the racetrack in 2016.
The season opener, set for Friday, May 6, will kick off Ransomville Speedway's 59th season. It will also be "Student Night," and students from several local high schools are expected to help fill up the grandstand area.
As race preparations build, area sponsors continue to make a commitment.
Ransomville Speedway would like to welcome back Pepsi as the official soft drink, as the Big R and Pepsi's Joe Kasbaum recently agreed to a new, three-year contract. Ransomville Speedway and Pepsi have been partners for more than 20 years.
"It's so great to have them back with us again," Ransomville Speedway General Manager Tana Robinson said. "Pepsi is also the official sponsor for our roster page in our weekly Ransomville Speedway Laps program and utilizes signage throughout the facility as one of their advertising avenues. They are great to work with and we look forward to the next three seasons with them on board."
