Lawnmower racing is a fun, family friendly event and alcohol-free. Our club has racers ages 5 to 75, both male and female. We are a non-profit club that donates annually to charity. This year we will be supporting the Petrolia Food Bank, Preferred Towing Youth Shelter and Kidney March 2020.
Lawnmower racing is popular in the U.S. but the sport is catching on in Canada. There’s no prize money in the sport, called the “poor man’s NASCAR,” and machines can reach 100 km/h with engines having from 8 to 90 horsepower and cost from $500 to $5,000 to build depending on the racing class.
We now have a home track at 4120 Oil Heritage Line in Petrolia, Ontario. Races are held every other Sunday from the end of May to October 1st at 2:00 p.m. as well as at local fairs and festivals. See our race schedule for more details. Track admission is $5.00/person, kids 10 and under free.
