RANSOMVILLE, N.Y. (January 5, 2020) - Officials from Ransomville Speedway and the Freedom Motorsports Park in Delevan, N.Y. are proud to announce the creation of a six-race series for the Mini Stock division.

Ransomville and Freedom will each hold three races during the 2020 racing season, and the top five finishers in series points will share in a $1,000 points fund.

The Mini Stock series will open Friday, May 29 at Ransomville with the second annual Dick Wilkinson Memorial Mini Stock race. On May 11, 2012, just one week after his 73rd birthday, Dick Wilkinson won the Fireball division (now Mini Stock division) feature to set a new benchmark for the oldest feature winner in the history of Ransomville Speedway. Wilkinson passed away in February 2019 and a race was created last year to honor his memory.

Wilkinson had a long on again-off again involvement in motorsports that spanned over 50 years. He raced late models on the dirt at Ransomville and on the pavement at Lancaster Speedway during the 1960s. He also owned a 358 Modified that was piloted by Mark Sylvies. Wilkinson then spent several seasons in the grandstands as a fan before getting the itch to get back behind the wheel in 2008. “I didn’t race because I couldn’t afford it,” he told Dave Roberts in 2012, “I really did want to try it again. So when the Fireball division was at the track, we decided to give it a try.”

The Ransomville/Freedom Mini Stock Series will run its first race at Freedom on June 12, and then head back north to Ransomville the following Friday (June 19). The fourth race will be at Freedom on July 31 followed by the final race at the “Big R” on August 7. The series will conclude on September 12 at Freedom.

Officials from both facilities are looking for a marketing partner to become the series’ title sponsor. Anyone interested in sponsoring the six-race series can contact Jenn Martin at the Ransomville Speedway office at (716) 791-3602.

About Ransomville Speedway: Opened in 1958, Ransomville Speedway is located on Braley Road in the hamlet of Ransomville, just 20 minutes from Niagara Falls and Lockport. “The Big R” is a 3/8-mile DIRTcar sanctioned facility that is the home of the Summer Nationals. Ransomville also features a 1/16-mile Go-Kart track for action on the “Little R” on Thursday nights. For more information, please visit our updated website at as well as follow us on Twitter @Ransomville and like us on Facebook. You can also contact the speedway by phone by calling (716) 791-3602 or (716) 791-3611.
