Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
At 7:02 A.M. (EDT) this morning, spring began with the Vernal Equinox and the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) announcing the schedule for its 21st annual STA-BIL® Lawn & Garden Mower Racing Series.
The increasing daylight, warmer temperatures and rebirth of flora and fauna is an annual excuse for lawn mower racers to take their machines like Turfinator, Sodzilla and Lawn Ranger out of the garage onto racing lawn mower tracks from coast to coast.
“Spring is here and it’s time to fire up the racing mowers,” said Bruce Kaufman, “Mr. Mow It All,” USLMRA President. “With STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer® in their gas tanks, the fuel has stayed fresh all winter, so these sod stompers and grass kickers will start the first time, every time. All systems are mow!”
Race dates for the 2013 STA-BIL Lawn & Garden Mower Racing Series include some old favorites such as the annual Huntington’s Disease Race For Research in Grand Rapids and the St. Mary’s County Mow Down in Clements, Maryland along with new venues such as the legendary Charlotte Motor Speedway and Lancaster’s TNT Speedway in Tampico, Illinois.
The 21st STA-BIL Keeps Gas Fresh Finals national championships will move back two weeks from its’ traditional Labor Day Weekend slot to become part of the Delaware County Fair in Delaware, Ohio on Sept. 14.
