RC Mowers robots help maintain two iconic Florida race tracks

Daytona International Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway ground crews have solved labor shortage and safety challenges with the robotic mower manufacturer’s remote-operated machines

RC Mowers, a manufacturer of remote-operated and autonomous robotic mowers, has been contracted to cut some of the most famous banks in racing. 

When the ground crews at Daytona International Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway needed to maintain the areas surrounding their legendary race tracks, they chose RC Mowers.

Representatives of RC Mowers are showcasing their remote-operated mowers and their newly released Autonomous Mowing Robot this week on the Midway at Daytona Speedweeks, including the Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. 300 on February 18 and the Daytona 500 on February 19.

Tim Kubista, vice president of sales and marketing for RC Mowers, says: “Our mowers have helped these racetracks address major challenges which include solving labor, safety and efficiency issues.

“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 will pass by our products in Daytona and Miami over the course of these events.”

RC Mowers will display their mowers alongside other major brands such as Toyota, Door Dash, Ally Bank, and Sunoco.

Daytona International Speedway uses the TK-52XP to mow their outer banks and Homestead-Miami Speedway utilizes the TK-44E for theirs. Talladega Superspeedway has maintained their 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 August 25, 2023 and the Coke Zero Sugar 400 on August 26, 2023 at Daytona International Speedway and will showcase their mowers at the Contender Boats 300 on October 21, 2023, and at the NASCAR Cup Series 400 on October 22, 2023, at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

RC Mowers displayed their collection at these same events in 2022.
