Start your mowers!
The Morton Loggers' Jubilee is already preparing for next year's celebration.
We're looking forward to seeing
you at the track on August 10, 2018.

It is our desire to continue to provide the largest, most competitive and most fair
race of its kind.

Over 40 years ago our race started out as a true lawnmower race, and our intention is to keep it just that. We want to provide a fun, fair, competitive race with basic lawnmowers that anyone can build, that anyone can enter, and that anyone can have a chance to win first place, without spending a fortune.
