My name is Paul. I started racing mowers in 2002 locally. In 2005 I built my first USLMRA legal mower and starting racing some national races. I've never won a championship but I have a nice collection of trophys in my basement.
I'm a farmer so my schedule doesn't allow me to travel to as many races as I would like. I farm with my father. We grow corn and soybeans. We use to have a lot of hogs and cattle but we couldn't compete with the larger farms so we sold out. We still have a few cows, mainly so we can get fresh meat.
I have my
in Agricultre Education with a minor in Agronomy from Iowa State University. So I'm not the "traditional" farmer. I worked several crappy jobs before I got the opportunity to farm. Now I love what I do.
I've raced in IMOW, SP, CP, BP, and FX. I have built all my own mowers. Even the one I bought I took it apart and modified it to my specs. I do the majority of my own engine work as well.
My wife Candace enjoys the sport as well. She is usually at the races taking pictures. We purchased a toy hauler last year so hopefully we can do more traveling in the future.
