Ferris Mowers, a leading supplier of commercial and industrial lawn care equipment, will sponsor Ty Dillon in a select number of NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) races in 2023. Dillon, who begins his first season with Spire Motorsports, will debut the No. 77 Ferris Mowers Chevrolet The Camaro ZL1 in the 65th running of the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. The announcement was made today in Concord, NC, at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
This is the second year in a row that Ferris has partnered with Dillon and marks the 10th anniversary of the brand’s first sponsorship of the veteran North Carolina driver. The Ferris brand originally partnered with Dillon on the dirt late model series in 2013.
Dillon will also feature Ferris branding in a select number of starts behind the wheel of the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Camaro SS in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
“Ty is a great ambassador for the Ferris brand and we enjoy a great relationship with him,” said Christin Wam, senior director of marketing, Briggs & Stratton. “We are excited to see what he can do this season with both Spire Motorsports and Richard Childress Racing.”
“I’m excited to partner with Ferris again,” said Dillon, who enters his sixth full-time season in NASCAR’s premier series. “Ferris has supported my career since 2013 when I was racing badass late models and I am grateful for a continued relationship. To carry and represent their brand 10 years later is an honor and I know we will have great success on and off the field in 2023.”
The connections between Ferris and racing run deep. The company’s patented suspension system is inspired by stock-car racing. This suspension system is unlike any other in the outdoor power equipment industry and is valued by lawn contractors for its comfort, traction and cutting efficiency.
The 65th running of the Daytona 500 will be televised live on FOX, Sunday, February 19, beginning at 14:30 Eastern Standard Time (EST). The first of 36 races on the 2023 NCS schedule will be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
