Never raced lawn mowers before, my name is Josh Mckay and I am currently building my first mowchine. I live in southern Ohio (Washington Courthouse,43160) I own McKay's Jerseys a small herd of show cattle and plan on using this as my hobby. Been restoring and repairing small engine machines since I could read.

OK since I'm new I will start here!   been lurking here for a few weeks, Went to a local race meet some great folks. Bought a Murry 12 hp plan to run it in SS, and build a C/P as time and mowney allow. My sights are on B/P and a big twin but not an imediate goal. loooks like we  will run 4 or 6  races a year! I have been overwhelmed with the knowledge and hospitality of this site. A big thank you to all of you..

Pooch here from Jane Lew Wv. Starting from scratch, never built a racing mower before. I found some videos on you tube and now I have the itch. I am currently on the lookout for a mower to start with, but I have no clue where to start. Hoping to find some info here and get a build underway, the down side ... there is no track near me (that I know of?).

Hello! My name is Ray Adams and I live in Mooresville, NC, Race City USA. I'm surrounded by NASCAR race teams, but never got the racing bug, until I made a trip to Joplin, MO. Some friends turned me on to mower racing and it appealed to me in a big way. You see, I have this MTD, without a mower deck, that is just begging to have something done with it. I work for an international printing press manufacturer as a field service technician, covering North America and the Caribbean, so I'm not too terribly mechanically inept and I have a modest workshop of 22' x 22'. I have built some small engine specialty vehicles, mostly for fun and some as work vehicles. My current vehicle build is a civilian version of an M274 Mechanical Mule, which I plan on sharing and asking for opinions and such. I absolutely agree with the idea of safety and I tend to over engineer everything I build, with an eye towards safety, efficiency, reliability and longevity.

Name is Chris Zachariason, no I have not checked out the league yet.  We have our own tracks that we race on and I have looked up and follow the build requirements for the mowers that we all run.   I plan checking out the league this summer and possibly join.
