Lawn Mower Riders Race to See Who Has Speed

Posted: Updated:

BOHNAM, TX--A race involving lawnmowers?

These riders weren't cutting grass, they were racing. Lone Star Mower-Racing Association held an exhibition race at Bohnam Heritage Days. Racers from all over the country gathered to see who had the most speed.

"It's a lot like go cart racing, only go cart racing is for smaller people," said Earl Schultz, racer. "I can't squeeze my big body on a go cart, so this is the next best thing. I race a stock ca as well. This is a whole lot cheaper and a lot more fun actually."

Spectators watched the action free of charge.

If you're interested in participating in the race next year, you can contact the Lawn Mower Racers Association. To check for racing rules, visit their national website at
