RANSOMVILLE, NY – Ransomville Speedway will welcome a new series to the facility in 2020. The Northeast Late Model Alliance (NLMA) will make its first ever visit to the “Big R” on Friday, August 28 as part of a jam packed show alongside the Krown Undercoating 358 Modifieds, Investor’s Service Sportsman, Ki-Po Chevrolet Street Stocks and Sunflowers of Sanborn Mini Stocks.
“Our Crate Late Model event was a fantastic race last season,” said Jenn Martin, general manager “we’re looking forward to working with the Northeast Late Model Alliance to bring more Late Model teams to the Big R in 2020.”
The Crate Late Models returned to Ransomville this past June for their first appearance since 2016. Jeremy Wondering won the feature after a thrilling battle with Paul Grigsby. A total of 20 cars from across New York and Ontario took part in the event.
Founded in 2018, the NLMA is collaboration between the promoters of the Brighton, Fulton and Humberstone Speedways to align and grow their Late Model divisions. In addition to events at its member facilities, the NLMA holds races at the Cornwall and Merrittville Speedways. Drivers earn series points based on where they finish in their home track’s point standings in addition to NLMA events.
This past season Charlie Sandercock of Belleville, Ontario claimed his second-straight NLMA series championship. Sandercock racked up the Brighton Speedway Late Model track championship along with a strong showing in the five series races. Additional series front runners include Sam Pennachio, Tim Gillespie and David Pangrazio from Humberstone Speedway, Steve Baldwin and Bradley Rainer from Brighton and Chad Homan and Kyle Sopaz from Fulton.
The Novice Sportsman division will be off on August 28, but drivers will have the option to compete with the regular Sportsman on that night.
Ransomville will have a driver registration event and divisional meetings for the 2020 season on Saturday, January 26 at the Ransomville Fire Hall. Season passes, event sponsorship and billboard advertising for the upcoming season is available by calling the office at (716) 791-3602.
