SPARTA, Mich.-- Bring your lawn chairs to this family-friendly benefit at the Paul C. Miller Airport on July 20 and 21.

Witness seven classes of lawn mowers, racing with all cutting blades removed, clipping along at 50 mph and above. Who will cross the finish line first?

The gates at the airport open at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 20. The mowers start revving their engines at 5 p.m. It starts all over again on Sunday, July 21,  when the gates open at 11:30 a.m.  and  the mowers begin moving at 1 p.m.

The Paul C. Miller Airport is located at 9100 Vinton Avenue.  Proceeds from the race will go toward Huntington's Disease research and awareness programs. All race tickets are $5 at the gate; children ages 12 and under are free. Pit passes are available at the t-shirt tent for an additional $5.
