Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) March 16, 2011
As sure as Ground Hog Day sees furry rodents pulled from hibernation, the First Day of Spring, Sunday, March 20, will see lawn mower racers drag their bladeless beasts form garages, shops and sheds across America while the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) announces its’ 2011 STA-BIL Lawn & Garden Mower Racing Series schedule.
“Spring is here and the time is right to kick grass, sling sod and race lawn mowers,” said Bruce Kaufman, “Mr. Mow It All,” U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association President. “We’ve got our MowJo working from coast to coast and lawn to lawn.”
More than 1,100 racers will celebrate the end of winter by making preparations for the upcoming racing season, while finding new ways to use up way too much free time. “Even with rising gas prices and a tough economy, Americans are looking for cheap, family fun,” Kaufman added. “If you’re into motorsports, lawn mower racing is still the most affordable and fun motorsport to get into. The mow the merrier!”
