Iowa Speedway Sponsors Central Iowa Lawn Mower Racing Association's 2nd Annual STA-BIL America’s Heartland Summer Nationals June 29-30 at the River Bottom Raceway in Carlisle, Iowa.

The Hawkeye State will be on the Cutting Edge of American motorsports Saturday and Sunday, June 29-30, as the Iowa Speedway and The Central Iowa Lawn Mower Racing Association (CILMRA) present the STA-BIL Midwest Summer Nationals for two days of sod stomping at the River Bottom Raceway in Carlisle, Iowa, near Des Moines.

Grass kickers from across the country will compete in bladeless competition at the River Bottom Raceway, 101 HWY 5 Carlisle, IA 50047, in Carlisle, Iowa. Racing starts at 4:00 PM on Saturday and 1:00 PM on Sunday. Admission is $5.00 for those 11 years and older, free for children ten and under.

The turf battle will feature racing mower action on riding lawn mowers with all cutting blades removed at speeds up to 60 mph. Racers compete for points, trophies and bragging rights, as well as the occasional garden gnome, rather than cash prizes. Racing is sanctioned by the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) and is sponsored by STA-BIL®, America's top selling fuel stabilizer.
