Brand Penn worked well for me and not as high priced as some of the others like Joe Gibbs, Royal Purlpe and so on.

It’s been a blast and I want to thank all those who helped me along the way! This is great sport, not sure when I ever had more fun doing anything. Made some great friends along the way and feel I’m leaving the sport better than when I started.  About 7 years of blood sweat and tears but with MUCH help along the way. Iowa is now a “hot bed” for mower racing. The Midwest is in great shape and growing: Dan and Doug with the River Bottom Raceway in Iowa along with Sid Woody and the NEW CILMRA President Marty Murphy aka Donkey Boy… The Illinois Posse & Tornow Brothers… Jon aka Rooster, Larry aka Teddy Bear in Kansas… Support from the USLMRA, Bruce, Kerry, Rich & Chrissy.

Maybe the one who had the most influence on me in this sport is none other than Mr. Easy Parcheesy himself Paul Krueger.

Have Fun Guys & Gals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When the check was cashed a month ago, and you can't get in touch with him- that's not expecting something overnight


Was not defending anyone or trying to justify anything! Just saying.......... WOW people are so defensive. LOL

Ron runs a mower / small engine business, I'm sure he's swamped right now. His parts are quality and he's a very nice guy. The only issue I ever had was being able to get in touch, once you do it's all good but don't expect anything overnight.

You do realize if any hardware crosses the Mississippi River to Illionios from this race we're just gonna come over there on August 16th & 17th and take it away from you in front of your home town fans don't you?

Looking forward to it, should be a good time (both weekends!)

OK, more rain so we're canceled the April race. Back to the regular schedule; 4th Sunday of each month with June being our National Point races on the 28th & 29th.

13  General / Coffee Shop / Re: foot throttle on: May 02, 2014, 09:37:31 AM
Ran my first mower with the foot a couple of weeks ago and loved it. Ran finger for 6 years prior and had no issues there either so what ever works for you. The foot was on an FXT so my body was much more stable, might be the deal, on a prepared chassis yes you will do a lot more leaning and body adjusting.
