IMAGINE: Lawn Tractors..."speeding" through normally quiet residential streets...

Water balloons flying...from both the race "track," and from the sidelines!

Spectators cheering on their favorite racer!

THIS is the social event of the year in my neighborhood!

Accepting the Race Trophy 2 years ago! (Craig Allen photo)

After years of finishing near the back of the pack, I WON the race, and the coveted trophy...2 years ago.

Neck-in-neck last year... (Craig Allen photo)

Last year, as you can see above, it was close...not for first...but for last!

Its all in fun...especially with a "super soaker!" (Craig Allen photo)

My nephew Ethan, and niece Emily, had a great time riding with me (for the first time) last year!!

And, don't worry....we didn't come in last!

The race is set for 5:30...start your engines...and let the water balloons fly!

The Race is ON! (Craig Allen photo)

Below, check out my custom "riding mower" entry from 2006...and "Team Point" T-shirt!

My "ecologically friendly" entry in 2006...I put my father in the lawnchair, and "ran" the race. I did not finish last. (Craig Allen photo)

What will the 2013 Race bring?

May 27, 2012 @ 8:15am. I'm the FIRST tractor on the WET starting line. Where's the line? (Craig Allen photo)

Who knows...

I'm just looking for some lawn tractor-based fun...and that is GUARANTEED!

The DRY 2012 starting line at 5pm... (Craig Allen photo)

With all the rain we've had the last few days....and looking at Alan Kasper's 5-Day forecast...please join me in this single thought for one week from today: NO RAIN!

I'll have 2013 race pictures next MONDAY (Memorial Day), here at!
