Drivers will get their first opportunity to take their cars onto the track at the Ransomville Speedway on Friday, April 30, for “Test, Tune, and Time,” presented by VP Racing Fuels. A 55-gallon drum of VP Racing Fuel will be presented to the pole winners in the Krown Undercoating Modifieds and Investor’s Service Sportsman divisions.
“We are happy to announce that we are having our ‘Test, Tune, and Time’ on April 30,” Ransomville Speedway General Manager Jenn Martin said. “We do apologize, but no fans will be admitted into the grandstands.”
Current New York state COVID-19 guidelines will be enforced with social distancing and face coverings. Guidelines for grandstand opening for when racing begins at the "Big R" will be released next week.
Drivers in the Krown Undercoating Modifieds, Investor’s Service Sportsman, Ki-Po Motors Street Stocks, Sunflowers of Sanborn Mini Stocks and the Kevin’s Carpet Cleaning Novice Sportsman are looking to make their first laps of the season at “The Big R,” plus set the front row for the 2021 season opener.
A reminder to drivers and crews: Pre-tech will be available at the speedway from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Sunday, April 25. Drivers are asked to park in the parking lot and then drive their racecar to the tech barn where the inspection will take place. Drivers are then asked to bring their helmet, race suit, gloves, as well as their head and neck restraint. Drivers and crews can purchase season passes, memberships, and DIRTcar licenses at this event.
