For a more detailed description of the classes you can check out our 2012 USLMRA Official Rule Book

KS (Kids Stock): 6 1/2 horse power, rotary engine, 15:1 gear ratio, 5 mph max speed. For kids 6-10 years old.

Stock: Just that, remove the blades, drive it out of the shed and bring it to the track. 3650 rpm max. (Low or No Budget)

JP Class: Class for kids ages 10-15. IMOW rules apply.

IMOW (International Mowers Of Weeds): Same rpm, limited chassis mods, 8:1 overall gearing. A faster “Stock” class. Engines up to 15 hp. (Low Budget) Front engine; highly regulated.

Prepared Class: Full-bodied mowers with allowed modifications and engine size rules. Engines can be modified.

AP: 8 1/2 hp limit, usually older mowers that come with engines under 8 1/2 hp.

SP: 12 hp flat head engine limit. More common in late model lawn mowers.

CP: Over 12 hp OHV single cylinder.

BP: Up to 20 hp block v-twin cylinder engines. This class sounds like a pack of Harley’s. The v-twins can be built to over 40 hp with aftermarket engine parts. They have lots of power but are big, heavy and a handful to drive. Fast and loud.

FX (Factory Experimental): Engines limited to a single cylinder up to 465cc (12-14 hp). Must be a mower engine. Lots of modifications allowed. Tran-drive train open. This class, while restricted power-wise, is usually light and fast. It can have a kart clutch or torque converter drive systems. Major modifications allowed.

    Hi. I came to your July 14, 2012 race. I’m a little confused on the classes. For adults there seemed to be three. Stock, IMOW, and ? Also is there a rule book for your club that gives more specific information on modifications? Thank you. We had a great time at the race.

      Hello Randy! There are many classes for adults, two of them are only for kids (KS and JP). At the July race we only had mowers ready in a few of the classes (Stock, IMOW, and AP) but if you are ready to get a mower in one of the other categories (SP or CP) bring it on over. We would love to have you! I placed a link at the top of the Local Class Descriptions Page and I’ll put one here as well for a look at our 2012 USLMRA Official Rule Book. Glad you enjoyed our races!
