The USLMRA and racers from around the country visited the Charlotte Motor Speedway for the second points weekend in the 2013 STA-BIL National Lawn Mower Racing Series. Our second day in Charlotte in front of a record-setting FoodLion Auto Fair attendance featured some spring weather better than any we could have imagined.
In addition to the amazing weather and awesome racing, fans were treated to a ton of giveaways from STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer and K&N Filters and an appearance by “The World’s Fastest Mascot” Lugnut. The day’s Opening Ceremonies were broadcast on the speedway’s giant 16,000 square foot HD TV (the world’s largest!) that looms over the 1.5 mile quad oval track, and we were thrilled to have NASCAR’s Steve Park stop by and let the crowd know he and his son are fans of our style of racing
After thrilling Saturday’s standing-room only spectator crowds with some incredibly competitive racing action, the Charlotte Motor Speedway crew went out of their way to work overnight making improvements to the brand-new dirt track – as we said in yesterday’s recap, there’s a reason they call it “The Greatest Place To See The Race!” Racers and crowds alike were rewarded with some of our our best lawn mower racing action ever as over 100 mowers went head-to-head for trophies, glory and bragging rights in 11 action-packed classes.
Results for today’s races are available here, and there will be plenty of photos, video and MOW coming over the next few days and weeks – stay tuned!
