"No matter where you mow, there you are." - Bruce Kaufman, "Mr. Mow It All."

To mark it's 24th birthday, on April Fool's Day, the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) has announced that the Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, North Carolina will host the 2016 STA-BIL® 360 Performance Finals, as America's most affordable motorsport continues to mow and grow across the country.

The STA-BIL 360° Performance Nationals will determine champions in 11 classes who race at speeds of up to 60 mph with all blares removed. Racers compete for trophies, glory and bragging rights.

Racers from 20 states and regions are scheduled to compete including sod slingers from the Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Mason-Dixon, Michigan and Tennessee Lawn Racing Associations as well as from local lawn mower racing tracks across the country. Racers include The Ace of Blades, The Garden Gangster, Turfinator, and Sodzilla.

"We're 'mowtivated' to have Carolina Speedway host the crown jewel of our national racing series," said USLMRA President Bruce Kaufman, Mr. Mow It All. "The Carolina Speedway is building a new, purpose-built lawn mower racing track that is designed to handle the ever-increasing speeds of our mowers, while providing a safe, smooth, wide track. And that's no foolin'!"
