Sunflowers of Sanborn Continues Marketing Partnership with Ransomville Speedway

(April 9, 2021) Over the past few summers, the corner of Saunders Settlement and Baer Roads in Sanborn, NY has been turned into an overnight sensation when five-time track champion Chad Brachmann and his wife Louise planted sunflowers on their family farm. After becoming a viral sensation in 2017, the Sunflowers of Sanborn has become a popular stop in the region. Not only that the Sunflowers of Sanborn continues to be a marketing partner of the Ransomville Speedway, but will also be the divisional sponsor for the Mini Stock division.
“We are going to have different events planned again for the Sunflower field,” commented Chad Brachmann. “It will be the same feel as it was last year with social distancing and we will be announcing our events on Facebook in the near future,” Brachmann continued. “We do have some new things in the works, but we are not ready to announce those details yet, but they are things to do with the family and the Dads,” he said.
The Sunflowers of Sanborn logo was prominently featured on Chad Brachmann’s 358 and Big-Block Modifieds. The veteran of over 20 years finished fourth in the point standings for the Krown Undercoating Modifieds and earned two victories. Brachmann will once again be calling the “Big R” his Friday night home.
The goals for the 2021 season are just like any other season for Brachmann, winning races. “Plans for this year are all dependent on when tracks open and if the border opens,” Brachmann said. “We are planning on going to Bristol Motor Speedway and running the Bristol Throwdown with the Super DIRTcar Series, plus running the BRP Modified Tour,” Brachmann said.
Sponsoring Brachmann and his racing efforts are Sunflowers of Sanborn, Niagara Lawn and Garden, Stirling Lubricants/Champion Oil, Willco AutoCare, Rangeline Group, Coffee Crazy K-cup Super Store, Clover Ag Consulting, and Lawson Products. Turning the wrenches include his Dad Mike, brother Corey, Cash, and Mike. Chad would like to extend special thanks to his wife Louise and daughters Olivia and Sophia.
Not only that the Sunflowers of Sanborn will be the division sponsor for the Mini Stocks, and will be a race night sponsor in 2021, as they will be sponsoring the July 16 racing program.
