The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) will head to Martinsville Speedway this weekend for the sixth race of the season. Bad Boy Mowers, specializing in commercial and residential zero-turn lawn mowers, has signed on to serve as the primary sponsor of the No. 72 with driver Cole Whitt. Famed as the 'Paperclip', the 0.526-mile oval is located in Ridgeway, VA where Whitt has six previous MENCS starts, has completed 2,950 laps, with a best finish of 18th.
Based in Batesville, Arkansas, Bad Boy Mowers provides quality commercial and residential equipment for all of your lawn care needs. Delivering more was the whole purpose of building our first mower. It sure wasn't because the world needed one more zero-turn mower company-it just needed one built right. As a group of folks gathered around the parking lot driving our first mower, the name Bad Boy was struck when a driver jumped off and exclaimed, "that's a Bad Boy." With more power, strength and simple easy-to-use functionality than any before it, that "Mow with an Attitude" determination and strength from deep within our company has propelled us and driven our success ever since. We were obviously on to something because our competitors would freely offer the advice that we couldn't keep 'over-building them' like that and sell them "for that low of a price." Of course, we just didn't think there was anything wrong with building a mower that outlasted everything else out there and our customers sure didn't seem to mind saving a bit of money along the way.
"It's a pleasure to continue our relationship with Cole Whitt," says Bill Hurst, Bad Boy Mowers. We first partnered during his Rookie year in the Cup Series at Talladega and are very excited to be back with him on the No. 72 car with TriStar Motorsports. We feel NASCAR is a great platform to showcase our brand and are excited to be involved in the short-track action this weekend at the Paperclip in Martinsville."
"I'm looking forward to short-track racing at the 'Paperclip". We're glad to have Bad Boy Mowers on board with us for the weekend," said Whitt. "We appreciate their support and partnership. It's Spring and the start of lawn care season. Be sure to check out Bad Boy Mowers for your lawn care needs."
The STP 500 is scheduled for Sunday, April 2, at 2:00pm ET, airing live on FOX Sports 1.
