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......
