My Saturday assignments involved people racing two things one wouldn’t ordinarily think of as being “raceable,” beds and lawnmowers. I started off with the first festival of the year, Perryville, Mo.’s Mayfest which features a bed race involving silly costumes, sillier challenges and a lot of fun to be had whether you’re watching, participating or, most importantly for me, shooting. Next up was the Southeast Missouri Lawnmower Racing Association raising money for Relay for Life during their bi-monthly races in Patton, Mo. I shot a race last year and loved it so I was excited to see this show up on the schedule again. As always thanks for looking!
