I remember it well.  My parents brought my youngest son, Lee to this race, and I have a photo of Lee sitting under a canopy waiting for the rain to stop.

From Charlotte Motor Speedway: Thunderous monster trucks will soar, aerobatic motorcycles will touch the sky and lawnmowers will rock the road when The Dirt Track at Charlotte hosts high-flying action featuring the most unique vehicles in motorsports on Saturday, Aug. 13, as the adrenaline-pumping Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash rolls in for one of the most spectacular nights of rim-rattling action.

The exciting evening of monster mayhem includes gigantic trucks battling in a no-holds-barred freestyle competition and a series of one-on-one elimination races over a radical obstacle course featuring twisting turns and treacherous terrain.

This year’s bash hosts 10 metal-mashing machines that will compete in head-to-head challenges including Bigfoot 4x4, Hooked, Stone Crusher, Avenger, Brutus, Saigon Shaker, Heavy Hitter, Dawg Pound, Dirt Crew and Quad Chaos.

In addition to the monster truck show, lawnmower racing and a skyscraping freestyle motocross exhibition are sure to rev up fans for an unmatched mix of entertainment. The United States Lawn Mower Racing Association makes its highly awaited debut at The Dirt Track, with bladeless mowers slinging dirt at speeds up to 60 mph.

A jet-powered drag truck known as “Magdatude” will also make its first appearance at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, with 20,000 horsepower of car-melting fun awaiting fans in attendance..

Rising roughly 11 feet tall and tipping the scales at nearly five tons, monster trucks have custom-built, fuel-injected engines producing up to 2,000 horsepower under the hood which propel the massive machines to jumps of 110 to 115 feet—a distance greater than 14 cars lined up side-by-side.

Festivities begin with the Circle K Pre-Race Pit Party from 4-6 p.m., where fans can meet the monster truck drivers, get autographs and have their pictures taken with the enormous vehicles.

Fans can also feel the thrill of power and speed with a monster truck ride on the Sgt. Smash or Coyote Hunter throughout the day for just $10 per person.

Spectator gates open at 4 p.m. Opening ceremonies will begin at 7 p.m.

TICKETS:
Reserved seats for the Aug. 13 Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash cost just $10 plus tax for children 13 and under. Adult tickets cost $32 including tax. For tickets to the Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash, visit the speedway’s website or call the ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS (3267).

The closest event similar in nature is the annual / famous 4th of July "12 Mile 500" held in Twelve Mile, Indiana.  It is "enduro" in nature.

The 12 Mile 500 is America's oldest lawn mower race, running continuously since 1963, which earned it recognition by the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association as a first-year USLMRA Hall of Fame Honoree, in 2009, along with the legendary Boogie Woogie Man, Chuck Miller and the very first USLMRA member ever - April 4, 1992 - "Racy Ray" Mrocks.

If you think that ride on mowers can’t offer much of a spectacle, think again! Fast, fun and furious, lawn mower racing is motorsport at its most eccentric and the BLMRA’s flagship event, the world-renowned 12 Hour Race takes place on Saturday, 6th August.
The venue is once again Five Oaks, near Billingshurst in West Sussex RH14 9AE – just off the A29. Qualifying, which is open to the public, starts at 3.45pm, with the race commencing at 8pm.

We are also pleased to announce that we are being supported by Phoenix Motorcycle Training who, as one of the fastest growing training organisations in England, offer a tailored programme of instruction for all rider levels at centres across the south of England.
12 hours of intense racing!

As usual, the teams will line up in a traditional Le Mans grid formation with the drivers running to their machines at the start. 
The teams of three drivers (male and female) compete throughout the night at speeds approaching 50 mph – and without any form of suspension other than a padded seat, this is no stroll in the park! The pace remains unrelenting for the full 12 hours and it’s not unknown for the first three mowers to be on the same lap when the chequered flag drops. This is a true test of human endurance and mechanical reliability.

As darkness descends, the race takes on a totally different atmosphere as the pit lane becomes a sea of light and the night is punctuated by mower headlamps streaking past.
Last year’s event saw a new distance record of 354 miles established, so the leading teams will be keen to raise the benchmark still further, although the weather will play a key role as ever.   
All profits to charity

Once again, the £6 entry fee to the race (children and parking are free) raises money for good causes and once again our chosen charity is the local Ingfield Manor School for children with cerebral palsy.

There will be full trackside catering and race commentary throughout, or you can listen in on Radio Le Mow on 87.7 FM.
With the previous victorious team members back to defend their crown, old scores to settle and new faces on the block, the challenge is now on for the greatest event of the year.

 The BLMRA 12 Hour Lawn Mower Race is GO!!!
