Westward Mow will be the call as lawn mower racers converge in Estacada, Oregon over the 4th of July holiday for America’s Fastest Mowin’ Sport” – lawn mower racing.
Estacada Area Community Events (EACE) and STA-BIL® brand Fuel Stabilizer will present the 2nd annual STA-BIL Pacific Coast Summer Nationals and U.S. Pacific Coast Open, July 3-5 at the 4th of July Festival in Estacada, Oregon, at the Mow Bang Raceway, 30900 SE Eagle Creek Rd, in Estacada, Oregon for three days of sod slinging action. Racing takes place 2:00-8:00pm on July 4 and 6:30pm on July 5 as well as test & tune on July 3. Parking is $10.00 per carload, with free spectator admission.
“What’s more American than racing a wicked fast lawn mower in the middle of a grassy field on the 4th of July?” quipped Dan Skoog of the EACE Events Committee. “Well, maybe a spectacular fireworks show. We’ve got both!"
Located about 30 miles outside of Portland, the Mow Bang Raceway is a custom-built lawn mower racing track nationally recognized as one of the nation’s premier racing facilities and the home of the only U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) Sanctioned National Event west of the Rocky Mountains.
Lawn mower racers are expected from the Mount Hood Lawn Mower Racers, an Oregon-based USLMRA Affiliated Club, the Sportsman’s Grass Car Lawn Mower Racing Association from Wamic, Oregon, The Sac Valley Mower Racers from Sacramento, the Anza, California-based Pacific Coast Lawn Mower Racing Association, the Sequim Lawn Mower Racers from Sequim, Washington and the Port Hadlock Superstock Lawn Mower Racing Association from Port Hadlock, Washington as well as sod stompers from Alabama, Idaho, Illinois and Kansas.
To mark this “mowmentous” occasion, the Hon. Becky Arnold, Mayor of Estacada will declare July 3-5 as “Mow Town Days in Estacada” to recognize that lawn mower racing turns a weekend chore into a competitive sport and to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the USLMRA which was founded on April Fool’s Day, 1992.
Festival activities will also include a free screening of the new documentary film “On Your Mark Get Set, Mow: A Tale of Hope, Redemption and Lawn Mower Racing” which will be shown on a large outdoor screen adjacent to the Mow Bang Raceway. The film explores the world of lawn mower racing through the eyes of a Michigan family who has lost six members to Huntington's disease and uses the sport to raise funds for research
Additional events include a carnival, logging competitions, live music, “Bang Fest” featuring Portland area bands, a hot rod and custom car show and The Big Bang Fireworks Sky Show, one of the best fireworks sky shows in the area.
