With gas prices hitting an all time high, the U.S. Lawn Mover Racing Association (USLMRA) is feeling the heat, but it wont keep them from riding the grass-cutting speed machines.
Bruce Kaufman, founder of the USLMRA, says, Times are tough this year. Its certainly become a challenge to race with the price of gas, but Americas gonna keep racing. Gas isnt gonna stop us. Its 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 mans sport. You dont need to be someone special, but you do have to have it mowin on.
