"I spend a great deal of time outside and do a lot of work on my home myself, and I understand how important their products can be. They have a great history and it will be an honor to have a brand of their stature and reputation on our #16 Ford Fusion moving forward." Ortho makes its debut on the #16 car next week at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and will appear on the car for two more races this season before becoming the anchor partner in 2015.
"Roush Fenway Racing, Greg Biffle and the #16 Ford are a natural partner for Ortho," said Mike Sutterer, Vice President of Ortho and Regional Marketing. "Like Ortho, Greg and Roush Fenway Racing have a long history of success, including being number one. We feel Greg and his crew will enable us to engage with fans and highlight our great brand. Needless to say, our entire team is excited to see the new car on the starting grid and in victory lane."
Ortho's parent company, Scotts Miracle-Gro teamed with Roush Fenway from 2005 until 2011, teaming for 12 wins and 14 poles across all three of NASCAR's major series. Mark Martin drove the Scotts Ford F-150 to six victories in the NASCAR Truck Series, while Carl Edwards captured the 2007 NNS Championship carrying Scotts colors. Roush Fenway Racing
