RANSOMVILLE, NY… (March
28, 2017) The fans that were on hand at the
Ransomville Speedway car show at the Fashion
Outlets were introduced to the 2017 Miss
Ransomville, Emily Buzzard.
Emily grew up around the speedway cheering on
her father Steven Buzzard, and now her
brother-in-law Ryan Hoolihan. Emily has always
wanted to give back to the place that gave her
so many fond memories and she is glad that she
now has that opportunity as Miss Ransomville. “I
am ecstatic to hold this position and can’t wait
for the season to begin” says 2017 Miss
Ransomville Emily Buzzard. Emily is a Junior at
Daemen College pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in
Social Work with a minor in Psychology. After
graduation, Emily plans on attending graduate
school to obtain her Master’s in Social Work.
While at Daemen, Emily is the President of the
Daemen College Honors Program and Vice President
of the Social Work Alliance. She has also
received the honor of being named one of
Daemen’s Trustee Scholars. Emily is a graduate
of Lewiston-Porter High School.
Although she just received the title of Miss
Ransomville, Emily feels like she’s been a part
of the speedway family for a long time.
Alexis Morris was named runner-up and she will
also be promoting the speedway at events
throughout the season. Alexis is a teacher at
Imagination Station and studied Early Childhood
Education at Niagara County Community College.
Like Emily, Alexis has been attending the action
at the “Big R” ever since she was a baby.
Between watching her dad Alex and boyfriend
Brian Monahan race, Alexis has seen it all at
Ransomville. “I hope the best for all the
drivers this year and hope that we all have a
great year” says Alexis Morris. “Being able to
help Emily be Miss Ransomville is going to be
such a great opportunity and a great experience”
are pleased to have Emily be Miss Ransomville
and have Alexis as well” stated Ransomville
General Manager Jenn Martin. “I would like to
say a huge thank you to the judges and for the
crowd that was on hand supporting all of our
contestants this year” Martin added. “I would
also like to thank all the drivers that
supported the car show and came out for the
autograph session” Martin said.
Ransomville Speedway would like to welcome both
Emily and Alexis.
Their first race of the season will be during
the Test, Tune and Time session presented by VP
Racing Fuels on Friday April 28th
with the 60th Season Opener set for
Friday May 5th.
