Hello to all who enjoy this site.  I'm not new to the site, but never did introduce myself when I joined.  Have been racing about three years here in SC and its the most fun I've had with my clothes on.  I'm currently racing an older model Craftsman with a stock 18 Vanguard and am building a 21 Vanguard.  It won't be stock.  I've raced at several tracks in SC, with two SOMA  sanctioned and three independent that race karts and mowers.  Would love to find others in the central SC area.  I'm Bobby and race #55.  A short plug for those who maintain this site - keep up the great job!!
Remember this, race hard but race safe.

Hello Everyone.  My name is neremusnav from Parma Michigan.  I'm new to racing mowersports.  I got a project mower going and a few donors in the yard.  As of now I'm building to race my buddies around a track in my yard but it may turn legit someday.

Hey everyone my name is Richard Bechtel and I am from Olpe, KS which is just south of Emporia. I am kinda new to this site but I have been racing mowers since 2011. I will admit I still got a lot to learn and that is why I am here on this site. Got into the sport kinda by a challenge decided to build one and was hooked ever since. Plus I was looking for a cheap way to have fun without getting into trouble due to being a college student. We have a local races around here but the only classes we have are SS classes due to the type of tracks we have and safety reasons. Wouldn't mind one day watching the big boys race and maybe work my way up to be able to race with them.

Hi all....my grandkids and a few friends call me "pop pop"....Dave works fine as well!! bigsmile
I'm an old fart....censored near 63....I have a love of all things mechanical and inparticular anything with wheels!
I've only been to one lawn mower race about 7 years ago in Cedarville south Jersey.I couldn't believe that you could make a Lawn mower go 45 mph!!!! woo bigsmile
Well.....I've had a notion ta bild me one...although it wont be one I can race in sanctioned lawnmower races....it'll have a horizontal shaft clone motor probably displacing at least 420 cc.
It'll look like a cross between a gokart and a small rider.
>>VIDEO IS ON A ROAD< RIDER HAS NO GEAR ON> <DELETED> hope this link comes through OK.
That young man gave me the inspiration to build something as cool as he did!!
At anyrate I have a small weld shop with some machine shop equip. in it......I hope to get on my build sometime in mid to late august
That's about it for now!!! bigsmile

Relatively new to mower racing.  I have been viewing heymow forum for sometime now. I am finally going to pull the trigger and build a racing mower.   I have been garden tractor pulling for several years, but I am looking for something else to do now.  My wife is behind this as she thinks it will  be more fun to watch than gardentractor pulling.   A local racetrack promoter is looking to add lawn mower racing to his venue.    I'm looking at the rules and pictures of other mowers trying to decide what to build.  I have raced go karts and stock cars in the past, so I know just enough to be dangerous. hahaha.  So far tis forum has been very helpful.   Thanks
I would also like to mention that I'm located in west central Minnesota, so if anyone is interested in racing out here let me know.   Hopefully we can get regular racces in Redwood Falls Minnesota.

Hey Oldiron, I am in New Ulm, MN.  If there is anything I can help with to get you started let me know.  I have a GP and an AP that I race.  Check out the Minnesota lawn mower racing association (MNLMRA) website or look us up on Yahoo Groups or Facebook to see what we have going on.  If you are up for a bit of a drive, there is a race at Hawks Bar in Monticello, MN this Saturday where you could get some info from some of our members.

WELCOME! Do you build your own engines? There is A LOT of help for building around here. Just use the left search button [the right one doesn't work as well].

Hi all I'm Dave from Medford Oregon. I worked 13 years as a service manager for a power equipment shop. Got started racing in 2000. "Retired" in 2008. Went to go check out a race a few weeks ago, and my friends asked if I wanted to hop on their extra mower and run in the class. After my first place finish in the main, I'm officially sucked back in. Now working on a mower for the first time in a few years. Seems a lot more fun this time around.
