Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing lubricants, congratulates Erick Rudolph of Ransomville Speedway who picked up his second 358 Modified win this season.
Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/21/2019 -- A strong field of 24 drivers were on hand for just their second race of the 2019 season at Ransomville. Jeff McGinnis and Rick Richner started on the front row, while Erick Rudolph had to start 12th due to Ransomville's lineup procedures. As the winner of the most recent feature in the division, Rudolph had to start at the end of the cars that qualified for the redraw.
McGinnis grabbed the early lead, but handed it off to Ryan Susice after a restart on lap 3. Rudolph wasted little time as he moved from seventh place on lap 3 to third place just three laps later. The red flag was displayed on lap 6 when Tyler Willard rolled his car over after making impact with the wall in turn one. He walked away from the incident.
The race then went on a long green flag run with Susice leading Mat Williamson and Rudolph. Williamson and Rudolph ran side-by-side for several laps as they contested the runner up position. Susice tried to pull away from the battle between Williamson and Rudolph, but lapped traffic made that difficult.
The trio remained close together on the track as Rudolph finally wrestled second away from Williamson on lap 18. He then tracked down Susice, and made a run underneath him coming out of turn two on lap 24 to take the lead for the first time. Susice tried to regain the spot at the other end of the track, but he hopped the cushion in turn three and scraped the wall.
Rudolph survived a late race restart when Steve Lewis, Jr. brought out the caution with four laps to go. He drove on to pick up his second-straight Ransomville win, and did it in front of his sponsor Blue Cross Blue Shield of WNY.
