Turf Titans of the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) will mow ‘em down in Minnesota at the Houston County Mow Down, a USLMRA STA-BIL Racing Series Event at the Houston County Fairgrounds, 203 History Lane, Caledonia, Minnesota, 1:00pm and 7:00pm on Saturday, June 19th. Admission is $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for children 12 and under.
“What better way to enjoy the day before Father’s Day than with some sod slinging, grass kicking lawn mower racing,” said USLMRA Race Coordinator and Houston County Fair Board Member Jeremy Johnson of Hoka, Minnesota. “We’re going to be on the ‘cutting edge’ of motorsports!”
Racers from the Minnesota and Wisconsin Lawn Mower Racing Associations will converge on Houston County, along with competitors from North and South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois and Michigan.
“This will be a Double Header USLMRA Points Race Day,” added Johnson. “We’ll host two races, with the first race in the afternoon and the second race in the evening. This will allow racers to compete in two national points races on the same day, and will qualify them for the STA-BIL Keeps Gas Fresh Finals and U.S. Open races during Labor Day Weekend. We’ll also find a class for local racers to come out and have fun. The mow the merrier!”
