Lawn Mower RacingWe always enjoy it when the latest joke-laden press release from the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association finds its way into our inbox. This time, the USLMRA promotes its upcoming race season while having a little fun at the NFL’s expense.

As the NFL deals with the bounty scandal, the USLMRA boasts that its STA-BIL Lawn and Garden Mower Racing Series participants only compete for “trophies, lemonade and bragging rights” and have avoided any hint of scandal after 20 years of “cutting edge competition.”

“We’re a family of racers who compete fair and square, a real slice of Americana, featuring American ingenuity and true-blue sportsmanship. There’s no place for bounties in the STA-BIL Lawn and Garden Mower Racing Series,” says U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association Founder and President Bruce ‘Mr. Mow It All’ Kaufman. “Well, we’re ‘virtually’ scandal-free. I’m still trying to find the racer who stole my beer at the driver’s party after the 1998 STA-BIL Nationals in Rockford, Illinois. Rumor has it either Sodzilla or Mudweiser is the culprit.”

Mike "Hedgehog" MillerTo celebrate its 20th Anniversary, the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) has declared Feb. 1 “Hedgehog Day.”

The pun-happy organization says it will “mark the mowmentous occasion” by the unveiling of Mike “Hedgehog” Miller’s 80-mph racing lawn mower for the 20th STA-BIL Lawn and Garden Mower Racing Series.

“On Hedgehog Day, Miller will bring his souped up, 80-mph Factory Experimental race mower out its burrow,” the USLMRA says in a release. “If the Hedgehog does not become scared by his shadow, he will leave his burrow and his lawn mower racing season will begin on April Fool’s Day on the 20th Anniversary of the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association. If the Hedgehog sees his shadow, he will return to his garage to tinker and make adjustments for the season, making his racing debut June 23, under the warm summer sun at the 4th Annual STA-BIL Land of Lincoln Regionals, at Nostalgia Days in Zion, Illinois.”

“Just like the famous furry rodent from Pennsylvania, I fully expect to be correct in my prediction of the coming lawn mower racing season,” says Miller. “And also like my Keystone State counterpart, I will not share my prediction with anyone in advance, not even with the lawn mower racing inner circle: ‘Mr. Mow It All’, ‘Turfinator’, ‘Sodzilla’ or ‘Ace of Blades’.”
