The USLMRA is excited to bring its’ STA-BIL National Lawn Mower Racing Series to the Ellerbe Lions Club track in Ellerbe, NC for two days of racing, May 24-25, Memorial Day Weekend.
The event will be a “Race For Taylor.” Here are some words from Race Organizer Rex Crouch, Jr.:
Ok guys, after over a year of hard work and planning we are proud to host a national race at Ellerbe Lions Club Speedway. This is not only a national race but a benefit race for my daughter Taylor Crouch. She was diagnosed with JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) when she was two. She is now five. She is one tough little girl but it’s a battle she will have to fight for the rest of her life. All donations will go to the JRA foundation.
Ellerbe has a great clay track with the best crew around to make sure the track stays in perfect racing condition. You will race in front of hundreds of fans and be treated with true southern hospitality. At the track we also have a pond for fishing and a playground for your kids. There is plenty of room for camping but no hook ups. Will post motels soon. We look forward to having all y’all here to race. Keep checking for more details to come. A tentative schedule is Friday May 23th the track will be open for anyone who wants to come and see the facility and drop your trailers. Saturday will be a night race as we have permanent lighting.
