OK Mower Racing and USLMRA would like to welcome you to the 4th stop of the 2017 USLMRA STA-BIL National Lawn Mower Racing Series and the first USLMRA National Points Race in the Great State of Oklahoma in recent memory on 23-24 June 2017 at the Will Rodgers Downs Casino in Claremore Oklahoma.
This event is expect to be one of the largest events is this part of the country in recent memory with racers coming from all surrounding states and as far away as South Carolina.
Our hosts Harold and Stephanie MacDonald and their son Monte, have been planning for this event for some time. They have taken the time to travel to Gun Barrel City, Texas, Avon Park, Florida, Apple River Illinois, and Kansas – heck all over the country almost – to learn and meet their fellow racers in order to make their National race to be a great event! Plus the entire Oklahoma racing group have put intensive work on their track to make it a first class track so that all drivers attending will have the best racing venue possible for fast and safe racing.
In addition to STA-BIL National Lawn Mower Racing Series US Points for both races, this weekend will serve as the Midwest Regional Championships, with Championship Trophies presented at the end of Saturday. Extra bragging rights are on the line, so come prepared and ready to kick grass!
USLMRA staff including Bruce Kaufman (Mr. MOW-IT-ALL), Kerry Evans (Timing & Scoring) Tony Thompson (Tech Inspector) and yours truly Manny Torres (Chief Steward) will be on hand to do everything possible to make this an event to remember.

As for all National events you are reminded that to make the pre-race activities go smoothly it is asked that all drivers ensure that your mower are well prepared for pre-race inspections, drivers have current USLMRA membership and have read the 2017 USLMRA Rule Book. Remember that in order to meet the time schedule on race day that everything is done in a timely manner according to the posted schedule so that we can start on time. We want spectators attending to able to witness some of the finest racing in the country on time.
