DAYTONA BEACH, FL (April 10, 2007) – The American Speed Association Kwik Trip Midwest Tour presented by Echo Outdoor Power Equipment is pleased to announce Scag Power Equipment as the Official Lawn Mower of the Tour.

“Many Scag employees and Scag customers are die hard race fans,” reported Chris Frame, Manager of Marketing and Technology for Scag Power Equipment. “Scag is proud to be the Official Lawn Mower of the ASA Midwest Tour. The ASA Midwest Tour is right in our backyard and we are honored to support some of the best short track drivers in the country.”

Scag Power Equipment was founded in 1983. From the original gear-drive rider, to over 50 high performance models today, Scag has become the largest independent manufacturer of commercial grade mowing equipment in the country. Scag Power Equipment is known and respected throughout the commercial power equipment industry for their innovation and attention to quality.

“This is such a huge step forward in building the ASA Midwest Tour foundation. The involvement of Scag Power Equipment enables us to build for the future of the Tour with the development of a long term relationship between the Tour, Scag, and our supporting racers. I am so excited about this partnership because the people at Scag are elated to be able to be a part of our Tour. Just take a look at the quality of the companies currently involved in the Tour; it says it all about the future of our success,” ASAMT VP Steve Einhaus explained with a smile, “Scag mowers can give you more time to pursue your passion for racing by cutting your mowing time in half when compared to ordinary yard tractors. Less time spent mowing means more time to spend at the track.”
