STATESVILLE, N.C. (May 5, 2022) – Ferris Mowers, a leading commercial and industrial turf care equipment provider, and Petty GMS today announced a multifaceted partnership for the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season.
Ferris, a brand of Briggs & Stratton®, will serve as the primary partner of Ty Dillon and the No. 42 Chevrolet for three races: All-Star Open at Texas Motor Speedway on May 22, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course on July 31, and Michigan International Speedway on August 7. The brand will also be a full season associate partner on Dillon’s Camaro ZL1. In addition, Ferris will be featured as an associate partner for six races on the No. 43 Chevrolet driven by Erik Jones.
“I’m excited to have Ferris join Petty GMS and be on our No. 42 Chevrolet for the remainder of the season,” said Dillon. “Carrying their colors during the three primary races is going to be cool. Ferris sets themselves apart by helping professional landscapers work hard and feel good, which I appreciate. I look forward to getting behind the wheel of the Ferris Chevrolet at Texas in a couple weeks.”
As an industry leader, Ferris has built a reputation for accomplishing more work with ease, through innovation, uncompromising performance, and quality features. Ferris Mowers makes extremely durable equipment with patented full suspension systems and ergonomic controls and backs them up through world-class dealers.

Vanguard engines are designed with their customers productivity and bottom line in mind. When putting trust in Vanguard, the company commits to deliver innovative products, application expertise, and world-class support needed to get the job done.

We are excited to have the No. 42 car, driven by Ty Dillon, sporting the Ferris badge at the All-Star Race, Indianapolis, and Michigan races this season.”
