About Farrell’s’ Excavating

Farrell’s Excavating Limited started out with one man and a rubber tire backhoe, and in the last 25 years has grown into one of the largest heavy civil company’s in Newfoundland. Farrell’s Excavating play’s a major role in the completion of many large provincial and municipal projects that involve the building and paving of the provincial highways and rural roads. Along with producing and placing their own granular and asphalt, they are also a huge player in moving heavy equipment throughout the island. The company’s experience, resources, equipment and highly skilled and trained workforce continue to lead them into a future of exponential growth within their industry.

The company’s owner, William Farrell, has always had an interest in racing and started sponsoring a dirt car for Wayne Walsh over ten years ago at a local track in Avondale, NL. William (Billy) passed on his interest in racing to his two sons, William and Waylon, who along with Wayne, have clearly demonstrated a strong love and passion for the sport. Billy is extremely proud of the boys and is thrilled to be a part of the racing at Riverside.
