Cutting-edge machines compete at lawnmower races | Arts and Entertainment

BRUSHTON — Spectators and racers from across the North Country gathered Saturday at Brushton-Moira American Legion Post 939 for the fourth set of lawnmower races of the season, and Roy Richards, commander of the legion, said bringing the races to Brushton has been a mutually beneficial arrangement for his organization, as well as the Northern New York Lawn Mower Racing Association.

The event, Richards said, serves as a small fundraiser for the legion, and he hopes to expand in the coming years to better accommodate a growing motorsport. The races themselves are organized by the NNYMLR, and they originally approached the legion to explore the possibility of a track over four years ago.
