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 is proud to offer a robust Local Chapter System.

Local Chapters either travel to venues within a state or region, or race on a permanent home track.  Local Chapters many race at fairs, festivals, events and other venues.  Local Chapters are orgnzied with by-laws, buysiness structure and automomous boards of directors.

The best formula for success when forming an LC is creating an organized structure (local board) with other mower racing enthusiasts to help you. You are required to furnish a copy of your organizational structure to the National Office.

As a new LC you agree to abide by and enforce the USLMRA mower building and safety rules. You also agree to require all of your LC members to join USLMRA.

This is made clear in the LC Charter. One of the benefits to you, with all of your racers beicoming USLMRA members, is that their personal and racing information is being kept on an USLMRA database. This information is available to the LC(s) upon request.
