RANSOMVILLE, NY – Sunflowers of Sanborn, Firth Jewelers and the Barker Lions Club are three of the many great marketing partners associated with the Ransomville Speedway. All three of these sponsors are all anxious and excited to get the season started at the Big R!
When multi-time Krown Undercoating Modified track champion Chad Brachmann and his wife Louise started to plant sunflowers last season on their family farm at the corner of Saunders Settlement and Baer Road in Sanborn, they did not know that one picture that was taken of their sunflowers turned into one of the most trending locations in all of Western New York. Thus, Sunflowers of Sanborn was born. They planted their rows and rows of sunflowers as a tribute to Louise’s parents, Jean and Flevie who recently passed away.
They have had visitors from all over Western New York and beyond last summer to see the beautiful flowers. “We had no idea that the sunflowers were going to be such a phenomenon”, stated Chad Brachmann. “It was crazy to see the amount of people that would come out to take a picture, or just take in the beauty of it all”, Brachmann said. “We have bigger plans for this year with off-road parking and a couple of events scheduled to help Niagara Hospice and Breast Cancer Awareness”, Brachmann added.
