As part of its 20th Anniversary, the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association is pleased to announce the V-Twin Shootout has become the U.S. Open V-Twin Shootout.

The 2nd annual U.S. Open V-Twin Shootout will be held August 11-12, 2012 at the Vestaburg Kart Speedway in Vestaburg, Michigan.

The event will be again be hosted by the Ithaca (MI) Dirt Devils under the direction of Ferris Hipolite. “All the fastest v-twins around, and some of the biggest names in lawnmower racing will be there to mix it up for the “2012 U.S. Open V-TWIN SHOOTOUT title”, said Ferris. “It will be an awesome display of fast-paced high horsepower racing on this ultra fast, banked clay 1/8-mile oval kart track. Find out if you have what it takes to bring home the 2011 v-twin shootout TITLE on August 13th-14th at the Vestaburg Speedway in Michigan, no second place trophies here guys. It will be the largest display of Outlaw/Supermod twins ever assembled; all machines and classes are welcome.

“The event will basically be run like last,” added Ferris. “And new this year will be the Open Twins competing for the V Twin Cup! First Place trophies and the same classes as last year, and we may add one or take one away as needed but the same principles: try and get everyone in classes were they can compete. Plus, just like last year, all mowers are welcome, not just the V-Twins and the Super Mods. C’mon out and join us.”
“This will be part of a multi-race series U.S. Open Series that will end in on September 2, in Delaware, Ohio during STA-BIL Nationals Weekend.

“The real upside is that this should draw a larger group of racers! 
 Dave Freeman from Vestaburg is excited about the Shootout and our group. We look forward to seeing you there!”
