HERES A QUESTION FOR ANYONE, DO YOU HAVE TO BE RACING TO GET INTO THE PITS? I HAVE A CHANCE TO GO ON SUNDAY BUT DON'T WANT TO SIT IN THE STANDS, NOT THE PLACE FOR ME. I HAVE HEARD CONFLICTING STORIES AND DON'T WANT TO DRIVE 3 HOURS TO SIT ON A BLEACHER. I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO A US NATIONAL AND REALLY WANT TO GO!

All you have to do is buy a pit pass and sign the waver and your in.. We encourage new racers to do this so they can get ideas for the builds and to make improvements. Most drivers are willing to share there builds but may not share there secrets.

OK.. Here is Manny's Reply to this Subject:

Use of Rack and Pinion Steering on USLMRA Race Mowers

Fellow Racers;
I want to let you know that I don’t track or monitor treads on heymow. I have enough to do to track what other folks have to say about our sport. I focus on what racers say on race day at the track. I realize that Everyone has their own opinions’ on what they think  is right and what should be allowed and I respect that, however I have been entrusted by Bruce since 2007 to update the rule book annually as needed and focus on safety and changes that would make the sport  fair to all racers alike. It’s not always an easy task as I have found out in the past years that no matter what is written not all racers will be satisfied with what is written.

Lawnmower racing was designed to be an inexpensive sport, thought some have gone to the extreme in spending we need to keep it basically a simple as possible. Several racers just can’t afford to spend high dollars so we have decided to have rules to everyone can be competitive on the track. Does this always work? Not always. So we are very careful on what we allow and what changes we make to the rule book. Again not everyone will be satisfied with the end product. But that’s how it has to be.

Now for your question on the rack and pinion steering; the bottom line is that “Modifications not listed are not approved” or legal”. The rules state that “as delivered from the factory unless otherwise stated”. Rack and pinion has never been legal for any class period.

Bottom line; I have yet to see a riding mower with Rack and Pinion steering  and if there are some out their then I could MAYBE take a look at the set up the assembly used and how it could be used on race mowers. The types of Rack and Pinions I would guess are the type sold by ARC and they are for Jr. Dragsters. Which are completely out of the question?

So as of now Rack and Pinion Steering are illegal for all classes in USLMRA.

Remember.. the "RULES" State as delivered from the factory unless otherwise stated.. Rack Steering was never used, delivered from the factory, but you can add direct steering.. Stated......

Avon Park Mowerplex to hold national event in March

http://www.newssun.com/news/010314-mowerplex

By BARRY FOSTER

News-Sun correspondent

AVON PARK -- The United States Lawn Mower Racing Association once again will be bringing their national competition to the City of Charm. Officials from the North American Grass Racers and Sod Slingers have inked the contract that will see competitors from all over the United States converge on the Avon Park Mowerplex.

"We're excited, we're absolutely thrilled to death," said NASGRASS President Wes Pyburn.

Noting that the March race will represent the first of the USLMRA season, he compared the planned two-day event to the "Daytona 500 of the mower racing season." Moreover, the March 8 date will set the competition in between the annual Sebring Historics and the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh From Florida.

"This is going to be the opening race of the USLMRA season, when the eyes of the racing community already are focused on Highlands County," he said.

Pyburn predicted more than 100 drivers and mowers from as far away as Maryland and Texas could arrive to race at the track located on the western end of the Avon Park airport.

"We are hearing there might even be some from Canada who could come down," he said.

Because the Avon Park Mowerplex is the first of the for-purpose mower racing tracks, Pyburn said there is added interest to come here.

"I think there is a certain prestige to be able to race in the oldest facility in the country," he said. "Plus, with the improvements we have made, this is easily the fastest track in the southeast as well."

In addition, there may be yet another appearance by longtime racer Bobby Cleveland. It was Cleveland who set a record for lawnmower speed at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Because the NASGRASS competitions regularly run on the second Saturday of each month from September through June, the national races will be integrated with the regular racing schedule. That will me that local racers will be run as part of the features along with the national competitors.

"The only real difference will be that local racers will be earning local points as well as national points for their finishes," he said.

Logistics still are being hammered out, but Pyburn said races are planned both on Saturday and Sunday, March 8-9.

Monday has been scheduled as a work day, with several truckloads of clay scheduled to be dropped off and worked into the racing surface as well as improvements to the lights, sound system and other structures planned.

The next scheduled NASGRASS race will be run Jan 11. Dubbed "Tourist Nite," a competition will be held to see which state has the most fans on hand that night.
