Ransomville, NY’s Erick Rudolph outfoxed local Merrittville Speedway stars Ryan Susice and Gary Lindberg to pick up his fourth Super DIRTcar Series win of 2019. Just when the capacity Thorold, Ontario crowd thought it would be a duel between two of their best drivers for the $8,000 payday, Rudolph’s No. 25R came roaring through the top of the field. Finally, Rudolph made the decisive move with five laps to go and captured the checkered flag.
