Unlike any other sport, lawn mower racing is by far a media darling. The media loves writing and publishing stories about lawn mower racing. For instance my name or picture has appeared in the Arizona Republic, Maxim Magazine, Daily News-Sun, etc. I know some people only get their names in the paper 3 times (birth, marriage and death but I feel honored and blessed that I have had the opportunity to have been in several publications including recently the nation's 2nd largest publication, USA Today.
With all that, I believe you can understand if I were to say, "I have a passion for the sport of lawn mower racing" that I sincerely mean it."
Today, AZLMRA, is still mow'ing and growing strong, 30+ members, covering four classes of mowers: SS, GP, CP and BP. The group races at county fairs, demolition derbies, motor parks and any other motorized event.
