Talladega, AL - May 4, 2013 - The lines will blur even further today when Dixie Chopper will be on the No. 19 Dixie Chopper Toyota Camry, driven by Mike Bliss, at the 2.66-mile tri-oval of Talladega Superspeedway.
“I’m excited for Dixie Choppers to come aboard this weekend, I’m hoping we can keep the Dixie Choppers Toyota Camry out of trouble and have a great finish,” said Bliss. Dixie Chopper is known for manufacturing the world’s fastest lawn mower, therefore being on display at one of NASCAR’s fastest tracks, seems inevitable.

About Dixie Chopper
Working in his barn near Greencastle, Indiana, Art Evans knew there had to be a better way, and in the year 1980 the first Dixie Chopper was born. Little did anyone know that he would lead the way to revolutionizing the entire lawn and garden industry by providing the first zero-turn lawn mowers built specifically for commercial mowing contractors.
Today Dixie Chopper continues to lead the industry in innovation and quality. Still family owned and operated, Evans remains active as the company's Chairman, but you won't find him sitting at a desk at Dixie Chopper headquarters (which is still located on the original property). He spends his days in the company's Research and Development department where he continues to provide ideas and inspiration to the Dixie Chopper engineering staff and manufacturing team.
Known as "the World's Fastest Lawn Mower," Dixie Chopper mowers are about much more than being fast. The company prides itself on providing quality and reliability in addition to speed. "It's not enough to just be fast," Evans states. "We need to be the best. We want to produce a mower that has many years of useable life left after it is paid for."
