Harvest Equipment will present the annual Mother’s Day stock car racing special at Barre’s Thunder Road on Sunday, May 11… but with a twist. As part of Harvest Equipment’s involvement with the event, a special six-Mom Lawn Mower Race will be held in the infield of the race track.
Moms will be chosen to participate in the lawn mower race based on essays sent to the Thunder Road office by their children. Kids – here’s what you have to do: Write a short essay explaining why your mom should be chosen for the Lawn Mower Race at Thunder Road. Email your essay to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax it to (802) 244-6963, or send it by mail to: Mother’s Day Contest, P.O. Box 296, Waterbury, VT 05676, but make sure your entry is in no later than 5:00pm on Thursday, May 8. Winning moms will be notified on Friday, May 9. Kids, please include your mom’s name and a daytime phone number in your essay.
Moms will compete in the Lawn Mower Race while riding on John Deere lawn tractors provided by Harvest Equipment. The first mom to complete her mowing section, sit in a comfy lawn chair, and open an ice cold Pepsi will be the winner. Each mom in the race will also receive a bouquet of flowers.
