Yard-Man cuts deal with NASCAR Yard-Man and the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, Inc. (NASCAR) have announced a sponsorship agreement that makes Yard-Man the Official Lawn Mowers of NASCAR.
The three-year agreement, which begins with the 2007 NASCAR season, is an outgrowth of Yard-Man’s increasing presence in motorsports and includes category exclusivity with the sanctioning body.

We’re already seeing some exciting plans to communicate these attributes to the NASCAR fan base in new and creative ways."
