Hey y’all! It has been a long while since I have been able to sit down and write about upcoming races; man does this make me excited!! I don’t know about y’all, but personally I have had enough of 2020, and I am ready to get back into the swing of mowing!
We here at the USLMRA are all gearing up for what we hope to be a phenomenal mower racing season in 2021! We have just published our new, revamped rule book, which you can find here if you haven’t seen it already:
We are working hard on ironing out the full USLMRA schedule for 2021. We should all start seeing locations and dates very soon!
