What do Big Machines, the world’s fastest lawn mower manufacturer, and Kyle Larson all have in common? They’re all partnering up for this weekend’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Lilly Diabetes 250.
Larson will once again pilot the No. 42 Chevrolet for HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi in Saturday’s race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Wednesday, the team announced that Big Machine Records and Dixie Chopper will co-sponsor the car.
The pairing will be Big Machine Records’s second primary sponsorship of Larson at Indy. Last year, the two teamed up for Larson’s eighth-place finish at the 2.5-mile superspeedway.
“We are honored to be joining our great partners at HScott Motorsports with Chip Ganassi and Textron / Dixie Chopper on Kyle Larson’s fast No. 42,” Scott Borchetta, CEO of Big Machine Records said in a release. “Kyle has won before carrying the Big Machine livery and he’s one of the best there is — I won’t be surprised if he guides his Camaro right into Victory Lane.”
Co-sponsoring the car with Big Machine Records is Dixie Chopper, a lawn mower manufacturer with offerings that run up to 36 horsepower. In addition to their commercial offerings, they also build the World’s Fastest Lawn Mower.
“We are very excited about this opportunity to be represented by Kyle Larson in the Xfinity Series,” Chris Vernon, VP and GM of Dixie Chopper, explained about the partnership. “As ‘the World’s Fastest Lawn Mower,’ we think it’s only fitting to be on Larson’s No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro given his impressive track record.”
Larson and the rest of the NXS field will first take to the track for practice on Friday, July 24 before qualifying and racing on Saturday.
