To all past and future Twelve Mile Lawnmower racers: It has been a challenge to find a day for qualifications with all the school schedules constantly changing, but we set Saturday June 7thas our qualification date. Note: We moved the ending time to noon so get there early.
- 1. We will practice and qualify by class. See the enclosed qualification day schedule and procedures.
- 2. The mower numbers will still be assigned via the qualification results and you will receive a letter detailing your number/position
3. See rule 25 for further details on restart positions and penalties for mowers involved in red flag restarts.
Briggs and Super Stock split. The Super stock will be for mowers with centrifugal clutch/torque converter drive or those not utilizing the entire original mower frame. The Briggs class rules will remain the same and it must look like a lawnmower to race in this class. See rule #1 and #2.
Our lap counting vendor will be back again so be sure to bring your license or credit card for him to hold in exchange for your transponder. With a paid entry, each racer will receive a bracket to attach to their mower unless already so equipped. Brackets from last year do not have to be replaced unless broken.
Fill out the entry/safety inspection form and either mail it back or bring it with you on qualification day. Below are this year’s dates and times to remember. All times below are subject to change. Both forms are available on the website www.twelvemile500.com.

Drivers ask us each year, why do I have to pay at the gate when I am racing? Our policy is that everyone pays to get in, fans, driver, vendor, and even the LIONS members working that day. We have tried several things including passes but none of them worked very well. We thought the best approach was to treat everyone the same. This is our main fundraiser for the year and we use our profits for community projects.
We want your opinions on our race and encourage you to think about joining the Lions club to help with improving our annual event.
