Bobby Cleveland, aka STA-BIL’s Engine Answerman, hails from Locust Grove, Georgia, where he’s always loved to ride motorcycles, race lawn mowers, build hot rods and tinker in the garage. His passion for motors and what makes them work runs as deep as his appetite for Southern BBQ, sweet tea and being on the road.

Bobby is one of the most decorated Lawn Mower Racing Champions in the history of the STA-BIL National Lawn Mower Racing Series, having won more than 75 First Place victories and taken 9 STA-BIL Series National Championships. He’s also the World Land Speed Record on a Lawn Mower, and is the builder of World’s First “Monster Mower” and the World Record Holder for Monster Mower Jumping!


 
Bobby has over 30 years of experience in building, designing and solving engine-related issues. In fact, he was a consultant to Jesse James’ Monster Garage TV show.

He also built and designed the worlds first monster mower and holds the current land speed record in the USA on a lawn mower at 96.529 MPH!
