Lawn Mower Race

Recommended Posts

Went to my first lawn mower race on Friday Night. It was pretty neat. Hard to imagine that some of them were clocked at about 35MPH and weighed as little as 135lbs.

Looks just like how NASCAR uses stock cars in name only. Lawn mowers in name only. Are they using real mower drive train components or is it basically go cart type components under a lawn mower body as they mostly appear to be?

I really don't know Sam. I heard the anouncer say something about the different HP Classes and 28CC's but couldn't hear much else. The noise of those little things is deafning even when they are in the pit. I do know that they sure could scoot. 35MPH doen't sound like much but on something that small and light it must be a wild ride. Lot of wrecks on the corners from hitting them too fast. Inside wheels would come up and then you would just see the driver jump off and the tractor and driver start rolling.

Rules: http://www.letsmow.com/officialrules.html It depends on class, whether stock or highly modified. "no blades" Doesn't that make you feel safer already?
