Just a couple months away folks from the biggest stand alone event in the US. Racers from across the US and Canada have made this a one of a kind event. We may even have some visitors from Australia coming. dont miss out. WHois coming what class ya running? Can YOU be the next ALL American Mower Champion?

FOR the first time it will truly be an independent event as I have always wanted. As it was always an event where ALL can come together it still remains so but now itís truly independent and FULLY insured. With that said the all American will revert back to its original name, THE ALL AMERICAN MOWER CHAMPOIONSHIPS. While we will always remember Sam, its time to move on love and miss ya buddy. Over the years this event has continued to be the biggest single stand alone event in the country. The biggest diversity and variety of clubs and drivers from across the US and Canada gathered in one spot. IT takes allot to make this happen and we are already actively looking for event sponsors and even class sponsors. If youíre interested please give me a shout. The will be the best ever. Dates are as follows

Nov. 1st Open practice
Nov. 2nd registration and tech and then Qualifying.
Nov. 3RD No practice Feature races only!!! 30 lap features this will not change. Itís what makes the race what it is.

Let's just speculate.    IF I get done with harvest and CAN attend what is the parking situation for toy haulers?   Is there power in the pits for campers?  If not can we run a generator all night?    What is the weather like that time of the year?  Can we stay "extra" days?   Will I ruin a tire on my FXT? 

G.   Come to Iowa and help me pound out harvest so I can destroy a tire!!!!!!!

We havnt run out of room yet!!

Quote
Is there power in the pits for campers?
No they do have a camping area with elect and water 15 spots I think first come first serve. They are maybe 100 yds from the track.

Quote
If not can we run a generator all night?
yes you can no problems at all.

Quote
What is the weather like that time of the year?
We have never been rained out yet!!! We have had short sleeves on friday, damp and cold on Saturday and wake up to light snow on Sunday all in the same weekend. We are generally mid 30's at night mid 60's in the day. 80% of the races have been held in very nice comfortable weather. BUT ya never know.

Quote
Can we stay "extra" days?
Absolutely its a public park and visitors are welcome.

Will I ruin a tire on my FXT? Anything is possible but not likely. if this year holds true to the last two years it will be the only track you run that can take what ever HP you throw at it. Thats if you can hold on to it...Pulling the front tires off the corners is common at this track.

I would not be much help as I am not a farmer...

I apologize guys, I posted earlier this year that I would be at the All American, I now realize that I would have to run my flathead up againist some of the OHV engines, I know the OHV's are faster and it's just too long a trip to a finish that's unobtainable unless someone breaks.

I have in the past helped George with this event and from my experience it is indeed a fantastic experience. I encourage all to go that can.
