Ferris Joins Ty Dillon, Spire Motorsports for Multi-Race Partnership in 2023
Ferris Mowers, a leading supplier of commercial and industrial turf maintenance equipment, will sponsor Ty Dillon in a number of NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) races in 2023. Dillon, who is entering his inaugural season with Spire Motorsports, will debut the No. 77 Ferris Mowers Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in the 65th race of the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. The announcement was made today in Concord, North Carolina at 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 in the Dirt late model series in 2013.
Dillon will also sport the Ferris brand in a number of starts driving the #3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Camaro SS in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
“Ty is a great brand ambassador for Ferris, and we have 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 Spire Motorsports and Richard Childress Racing.”
“I’m thrilled to partner with Ferris again,” said Dillon, entering his sixth full-time season in NASCAR’s premier series. “Ferris has supported my career since 2013 when I drove Late Models and am grateful for an ongoing relationship. Wearing and representing their brand 10 years later is an honor and I know we will achieve great success on and off. track in 2023.”
The ties 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 loved by lawn contractors for its comfort, traction and mowing efficiency.
Race 65 of the Daytona 500 will be televised live on FOX on Sunday, February 19 starting at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST). The first of 36 races on the 2023 NCS schedule will be broadcast live on Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
