    As I write this the Discovery Channel is doing a show about lawnmower racing. Anybody on LawnSite either race or sponsor a racer? I realize that the racing mowers are tractors, not ZTRs, but it seems like a natural for LCOs. (Or is it the last thing you want to do in your free time?)

    (just a curious homeowner)
  2. We/ well they race every day........See how fast they can cut a lawn without any damage, and it looking great.

    Makes the days go by faster.

    Also the tractors are/ well were lawn mowers at one time.

    And Monster Garage had a show on making a Mustang convertable into a lawm mower.

    a year or so ago i was watching some channel and the hosts were showing Nascars Tony Stewarts Father and his tractor. Some of those tractors have some serious Cohones.
