Heeding the call of Westward MOWmentum, the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association has appointed two new Western Regional Directors to work with long-time Western Regional Director “Bud”, as America’s Fastest Mowing’ Sport rapidly expands west of the Mississippi.
Joining Bud will be Bob Newman of Sacramento, California and Scott McFarlane of Canby, Oregon. Newman is President of the Sac Valley Mower Racers and McFarlane leads the Mount Hood Lawn Mower Racers, both USLMRA Affiliated Clubs. Bud is President of the Pacific Coast Lawn Mower Racing Association Local Chapter and the Mowtivated Hillbillys Affiliated Club.
“Bob and Scott are sewn from the same grass seed as me,” quipped Bud from his home turf in Anza, California. “I’ve been working with Bob for a few years now and just met Scott in 2011 at the Estacada, Oregon race, and these guys are MOWtivated to expand USLMRA lawn mower racing throughout the West. Scott and Bob have shown exceptional leadership and the organizational skills needed to keep our sport growing safely. They are a key part of our expansion here on the West Coast and we are very pleased to have them part of the team that leads the West to mow fun and safe races.”
Newman and McFarlane will continue to work with Elmore in venue selection, Club expansion, racer development, technical consulting, presenting build and driving clinics and overall growth of USLMRA Lawn Mower Racing in California, Oregon, Idaho and other Western locations.
