The commentators called it the “Lawn Mower 500″ and we are calling it some great fun in the Lone Star State! Here’s video of Kyle Petty and Rutledge Wood racing lawn mowers at Texas Motor Speedway with our Lone Star Mower Racing Association on FOX Sports!!

It all went down at the No Limits Garage Party before NASCAR‘s Sprint Cup Series NRA 500 on Saturday… In addition to Kyle and Rutledge giving our sport a try, USLMRA and LSMRA competitors from across the south amazed the crowd with sod-slinging action. Here’s a report from Lone Star MRA Secretary, Sammie Neel:

All of the racers did a phenomenal job! The racing was great and the spectators were standing, cheering us on. It was so ENERGIZING to hear their response to the racing! John “Sir Lawns A Lot” Nelson did a EXCEPTIONAL job commentating the race with his usual wit, and everything went very smoothly.

A big thanks to STA-BIL and K&N!  We are all keeping our fingers crossed that this event will lead to something else BIG!!
