I'm in SWVA.  They are going to have races in Hillsville and Dublin coming up.  Don't know how close you are to those.

 3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

No club around here, I'm in Abingdon(Near Bristol). Racing fairs mainly.  I also am 1 1/2 away from Dublin/Hillsville but that just comes with the territory.  I have went down to NC to race with (R.R.U.M.R.A.) Rebels and Rednecks United Mower Racing Association, look them up on there website/facebook.  I really enjoyed racing with them.

Yes us/ARMA.   Getting ready to go to cp.  Single OHV.   Main thing is get your chassis right and good brakes/steering.   I beat several guys that had more hp  and I was even still running a governor mine just stuck where I wanted it to be.  Safety is the most important thing.

I'll look forward to meeting you. Will you be racing in my class?   My info is in my profile if you need any help.   But to tell you the truth it's all right here on the forum you just have to read it.

My first built so thinking gonna build for G/P. Only issue I have to figure out the steering and from end. Been reading a lot but I learn better by looking so I'm gonna come to a race to get a look at how y'all have them setup. And no doubt safety first, you can have all the power in the world but if u can't control it it's useless
