RANSOMVILLE, N.Y. (November 18, 2020) - Ransomville Speedway is proud to welcome back four of its divisional sponsors for the 2021 racing season, including Krown Undercoating of Ransomville, Investor’s Service, KIPO Chevrolet and Sunflowers of Sanborn.

“We’re thankful for our returning divisional naming rights partners,” said Jenn Martin, Ransomville Speedway general manager. ”All of these businesses and their owners have been involved with the “Big R” for many seasons, and we appreciate their continued support.”

The headlining 358 Modifieds will once again be supported by Krown Undercoating of Ransomville. Owned and operated by former racer and track official, Jipper Ortiz, Krown Undercoating offers rust proofing and protection products to extend the life of your vehicle. Krown Undercoating is located in Ed’s Garage, the site of the original Ransomville Speedway in the late 50s. Both Krown Undercoating and Ed’s Garage can be found at 2662 Youngstown Lockport Road in Ransomville, and by phone at (716) 791-3712.

Investor’s Service will return as the sponsor for the DIRTcar Sportsman division. Owned and operated by former competitor Mike Greenawalt, Investor’s Services restores and renovates properties while coordinating with the property owners to ensure complete satisfaction. Investors Services has been in business for over ten years with proven results and has completed numerous projects throughout Erie and Niagara Counties in towns and cities such as Buffalo, Tonawanda, Kenmore, the Town of Niagara and Niagara Falls. Investors can be reached by mail at 4939 Lockport Road in Niagara Falls, NY, by phone at (716) 285-3000 or online at

KIPO Chevrolet will continue in its role as the title sponsor of the full fender Street Stock division. At KIPO Chevrolet, their entire team works together to provide you with the ultimate Chevrolet shopping experience. They are there to exceed your expectations, deliver the best service possible, and make car shopping fun again. Contact KIPO by seeing them at 2534 Youngstown-Lockport Road in Ransomville, by phone at 791-5378, or see their entire inventory of new and used Chevrolets online at

Sunflowers of Sanborn has once again committed to sponsoring the Mini Stock division. They had planned on making their debut as division sponsor in 2020 until those plans were put on hold. Located at the intersection of Saunders Settlement and Baer Roads in Sanborn, Sunflowers of Sanborn is owned and operated by five-time track champion Chad Brachmann and his wife Louise. Their field of sunflowers became an overnight viral sensation in 2017, and it has gotten even bigger with added attractions, vendors and events.

The attraction became a part of Brachmann’s racing operation in 2018 as the Sunflowers of Sanborn logo was featured prominently on his 358 and Big Block Modifieds. Brachmann, a racing veteran of over 20 years, took the Sunflowers of Sanborn #3 Modified to victory lane in 2020 with the BRP Modified Tour and is looking to returning to his home track in 2021.

Currently, Ransomville Speedway management is in search of a new division sponsor for the Novice Sportsman division. Any businesses or groups that are interested in supporting this entry-level, open-wheeled division that helps grooms the next generation of Sportsman and Modified stars can contact Jenn Martin at (716) 791-3602 or
