The Ridge Roars Back To Life This Sunday
August 3, 2017 (Fultonville, NY) – Sunday night ‘The Ridge’ will come back to life with the sound of fan approved horsepower at the fastest ¼ mile on dirt featuring a regular program of Crate Modifieds, Limited Sportsman, Pro Stock, Mini Stock, and Sling Shots. Most importantly it’s fan appreciation night along with a driver Meet & Greet on the front stretch.
Crate Modified point leader Chris Curtis holds a 10 point advantage heading into Sunday’s racing program over Jim Introne Jr., with Alissa Cody just 13 points back in 3rd. Tim Hartman Jr. is hot off his 2nd win since joining the field at ‘The Ridge’ along with drivers Dave Constantino, Chad Edwards, and Jeremy Pitts who have moved into the top 10 in point standings.
Limited Sportsman point leader Kathy Bellen is looking for a better night than the last time the fastest ¼ mile on dirt was in action, as she suffered some damage in an early race accident that ended her evening. Currently Kathy has a four-point lead over Mikey Jackson who has a feature win to his credit this season. Third in points is Dave Richer fresh off a feature win dedicated to his late father Ed “Omar” Richer with Marty Kelly III only eight points behind him also with a feature win to his credit.

Sling Shot point battle is a dandy with Brian Tobey Jr. leading the way with Bryce Cherko just one point behind in 2nd. Just a mere two points behind Cherko sits Jim Pollard in 3rd, with Scott Sprague and Brett Putnam rounding out the top five in point standings.
