On Friday, Sept. 3, Triple T Auto Parts will present a $1,000-to-win demolition derby following the completion of the full racing program at Ransomville Speedway.

The top three in the demolition derby will receive prize money, with $1,000 going to the winner, $750 for second, and $500 for third. The “Heavy Hitter” award-winner will also receive $500 – as voted on by the crowd.

There is $50 admission fee for the driver and car. Pit admission for crewmembers is $30 for members or $35 for non-members.

The Sept. 3 racing program will also be presented by Krown Undercoating and Hy-Tech Concrete and will feature the season championship events for the 358 Modifieds, Sportsman and Street Stocks. The Novice Sportsman and Mini Stocks will also be in competition.

Going into the regular-season finale this coming Friday night for the Krown Undercoating Modifieds, Mat Williamson holds a 2-point lead over Erick Rudolph and a 24-point lead over Ryan Susice. Brett Senek is looking for his third straight Investor’s Service Sportsman track title and will head into season championship night with a 42-point lead over Derek Wagner, who is one point ahead of Scott Kerwin, while Cameron Tuttle is now 64 points behind Senek for the lead.

Jaren Israel clinched the KiPo Chevrolet Street Stock championship after his ninth win of the season this past Friday night. “Showtime” has an 84-point lead over “That Guy” Mike Kramarz. With his win on Aug. 21, Jacob Bansmer was the first to clinch a track championship as he was crowned the 2021 Kevin’s Carpet Cleaning Novice Sportsman champion. The Mini Stock divisional championship will be decided Sept. 17.
