If you’re like most car guys then you’ll appreciate this piece. As car guys I’ve always found that our love runs deep and it’s not just for automobiles. Take these nice people down in the great state of Texas for example. They like cars, but they LOVE lawn mowers, so much so that they race them almost every weekend. It may seem odd at first, but once you dissect it a bit it seems perfectly normal. You’ve got your engine up front, 4 wheels and a nice cushy seat for your tookus. You’re out side in the open air with the wind in your hair and the bugs in your teeth… it’s awesome.
They’ve also got some of the best names going like Mow-Ron, The Pro-grasstinator and Blades of Thunder. There is also Mr. Mow-Jangles, Weedy Gonzalas and even a nice lady that named her mower Precious Moments… hmm… I think there is more to that one than she’s letting on. In the end though these people take their racing seriously, hell, they even have their own organization called the Lone Star Mower Racing Association.
God I love being an American!
