On Your Mark, Get Set, Mow!

GLENVIEW, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ladies and gentlemen – start your lawn mowers.

That’s because mowers from all over the U.S. are going to be cutting it up in Mansfield, Ohio, to compete in the 15th annual National Lawn Mower Racing Championships, which start September 2.

Event spokesman Bruce Kaufman says more than 100 “mow- inacs” will be racing at speeds up to 45-miles-per-hour for the grand prize trophy and, of course, “bragging rights.”

It’s only $20 to enter the competition and Kaufman says anyone’s welcome although he admits newcomers will be “thrown out there” with returning favorites like “Sodzilla,” “Turfinator,” and “Mr. Mow It All.”

But he says no matter who wins or loses, the event is sure to be one big party complete with a barbecue and racer camp out.

As Kaufman puts it, “We are like the Grateful Dead of motor sports”
