Twin Cities Live sent reporter Emily Engberg out to talk with the gentlemen from the Minnesota Lawn Mower Racing Association, and they’ve posted this at TwinCitiesLive.com:
The Minnesota Lawn Mower Racing Association is putting some fun into a chore that most people hate. What is normally used to mow your lawn has been changed to a fast racing machine. Riding lawn mowers are being used to race all over the area and some of the racers compete as far away as Florida and Georgia.
Races will be held at 1 & 5 this Saturday at the Anoka County Fairgrounds just north-west of Minneapolis / St. Paul. For more information, head to our 2010 Schedule.
