Redeemer Redneck Lawnmower Race

Below is the #19 car I was privileged to drive for the recent Redeemer Redneck Lawnmower race. The race was part of a fundraiser for our summer mission trip to Juarez, Mexico. You will note one of my sponsors on the left rear fender- Freddy T's.


Please note another of my sponsors- Budweiser. Do you see the horn I taped on to my deck?


The most prestigious sponsor was RPC United, seen here. Unfortunately this logo was irreparably damaged by the muffler heat. It almost burst in to flames about lap #5.

Here's a picture of the competition. Interestingly, I am the only one driving a ZTR (zero turn radius) mower.
Below is clear evidence that elder Bob Reymond was violating all sorts of rules coming dangerously close to taking out my left rear fender. Also notice his sweet mullet. My mullet is known as a "Kentucky Waterfalls". Unfortunately, due to widespread cheating and a general conspiracy, I came in dead last. Still, a good time was had by all and a bunch of money was raised to send our team to Juarez in July.

Yours is the coolest because it is painted in "Dinoco Blue"

Can't believe 'old blue' is still running. I'm guessing that the new ZTR was exempted from competition?

This should be a new Saturday morning fellowship activity during the summer (with mower blades engaged of course).

Old Blue is a piece of junk.

Yes, the EXMark was disqualified because it can go 12 MPH.

Bummer.

You might have come in dead last...but always #1 in the hearts of the crowd; truly a crowd favorite.

Alas, you should have grown Elvis Pork Chop sideburns- they're more aerodynamic.

Woah. An elder with a mullet?

sweet!

Reepicheep said...

unfortunately Jeff, the mullets are wigs...

Well, I knew your's was a fake, but Bob's looks very real. Sweet wig! I'll have to dig out one of my mullet pics from the late 80s.

Alas, mine was not a fake...

Wished I could have been there!
This is truly what the abundant life (ZOE` life) is all about!
Glad you took these picks. Friday and Saturday I was holding a deck building seminar, using our composite deck line, Moisture Shield, in Junction City, KS!~
