When the ground crews at Daytona International Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, and Talladega Superspeedway need to maintain the areas surrounding their legendary race tracks, they turn to RC Mowers, a manufacturer of remote-operated and autonomous robotic mowers, to cut some of the most famous banks in racing.
Representatives of RC Mowers showcased their remote-operated mowers and their newly released Autonomous Mowing Robot last week on the Midway at Daytona Speedweeks, including the Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. 300 on Feb 18 and the Daytona 500 on Feb. 19.
“Our mowers have helped these racetracks address major challenges which include solving labor, safety, and efficiency issues,” said Tim Kubista, vice president of sales and marketing for RC Mowers. “These speedways have allowed us to showcase our mowers at select events. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain national awareness for our brand. Thousands of people pass by our products in Daytona and Miami over the course of these events.”
RC Mowers displayed their mowers alongside other major brands such as Toyota, Door Dash, Ally Bank, and Sunoco.
Daytona International Speedway uses the TK-52XP to mow its outer banks and Homestead-Miami Speedway utilizes the TK-44E for theirs.
Talladega Superspeedway has maintained its banks with a TK-60XP since 2021.
The robotic mower company also will be on hand at the Wawa 250 Powered by Coca-Cola race on Aug. 25, 2023, and the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on Aug. 26, 2023, at Daytona International Speedway and will showcase their mowers at the Contender Boats 300 on Oct. 21, 2023, and at the NASCAR Cup Series 400 on Oct. 22, 2023, at Homestead-Miami Speedway. RC Mowers displayed their collection at these same events in 2022.
