The Super DIRTcar Modified Series came to a halt Wednesday night at Ransomville Speedway and a solid group of 36 modified big blocks were available at this 3/8 mile oval in western New York.
But just as the feature was about to begin, heavy rain postponed the 75 rpm main event until Thursday evening at 8 p.m. A regular at Ransomville, Mat Williamson will start on pole, with Stewart Friesen fifth and Matt Sheppard sixth. The main event winner collects a check for $7,500.
