    Default STA-BIL Lawn Mower Racing, Gun Barrel City, Texas, June 11-12

    I'll be there, and so will CRO Champions Kerry Evans and Ron Dunn!

    What began as a fun event for the residents of Gun Barrel City is now going national. For the past three years, Gun Barrel City has hosted the Lone Star Lawnmower Racing Association. This year the National Lawnmowers Association will bring its national event to the city on June 11-12.

    Lawnmower racing is a form of motorsports in which competitors race modified riding lawnmowers. The original mower engines are retained, but blades are removed for safety. The sport attracts all ages, and is usually entered with a spirit of fun, rather than extreme competitiveness. Though many participants do take it seriously.

    The Gun Barrel City Economic Development Corporation voted to approve $6,000 to the association to bring the “Mowdown Showdown” event to Gun Barrel City.

    Gun Barrel City resident Mike Howell, Texas Chapter president of the Lawnmower Racing Association, said, “The National Lawnmower Association would like to make Texas a regular destination.”

    “There are 10 national races a year,” said Howell. “They could possibly bring more than 100 racers to the city of Gun Barrel.”
