Traveled The Farthest

Unlike circle track lawn mower racing (which is dangerous by any stretch of the imagination), Lawn Tractor Olympic Competition is relatively safe, as most of the events races are against the clock, or in a straight line, eliminating a lot of the potential for collisions and rollovers.

That being said, everyone has a personal responsibility to be safe and should always act accordingly. One should keep in mind that these are lawn mowers, they are not built for speed, and any attempt to make them anything more than that, (by throwing thousands of dollars at them) is unsafe and a waste of time.

If you want to race 4 wheelers or go carts, go out and buy one.
