The U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) offers a a 3rd Tier of its award-wining, pioneering “Cutting Edge” organized lawn mower racing program!
USLMRA Affiliated Clubs (ACs) are offered across the country as the USLMRA meets the demand for organized and safe lawn mower racing at home tracks, municipal properties and local venues.
As the nation’s oldest and most experienced national lawn mower racing sanctioning body, pioneering American lawn mower racing national sanctioning in 1992, the USLMRA adds a “3rd Tier” to complement its STA-BIL National Lawn Mower Racing Series and Local Chapter System.
Affiliated Clubs are for folks who want to organize a group of racers to race safely and locally while following USLMRA build and tech rules in a flexible, non-binding manner.
Whereas racing mowers in the STA-BIL National Lawn Mower Racing Series and Local Chapter System follow USLMRA build and tech rules with 100% compliance, an Affiliated Club can have some flexibility in their Build and Tech rules, as long as USLMRA safety mandates are adhered to with 100% compliance.
Affiliated Clubs Are For
- Groups of racers wishing to race locally on a home track, and not travel.
- Race tracks wishing to host sanctioned USLMRA events.
- Venues seeking weekly or monthly races
- Groups wishing to get into lawn mower racing with the goal of becoming a USLMRA Local Chapter
- Groups wanting insurance
