Gas Prices Can’t Keep Lawn Mower Racing Down

GLENVIEW, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Lawn mower racing is facing a gassy threat.

With gas prices hitting an all time high, the U.S. Lawn Mover Racing Association (USLMRA) is feeling the heat, but it won’t keep them from riding the grass-cutting speed machines.

Bruce Kaufman, founder of the USLMRA, says, “Times are tough this year. It’s certainly become a challenge to race with the price of gas, but America’s gonna keep racing. Gas isn’t gonna stop us. It’s just another thing to overcome.”

Racers will be doing their best to spread that message this weekend (Apr. 26-27) at the 2nd Annual STA-BIL Kentucky Bluegrass Spring Nationals in Barbourville, Kentucky, which is a qualifier for the national championship.

According to Kaufman, it takes a man who can handle a machine to be considered the mow master.

He adds, “This is a common man’s sport. You don’t need to be someone special, but you do have to have it mowin’ on.”
