On Your Mark, Get Set, MOW! is an up-close, high-octane and heartwarming look at the people who “live and breathe” the sport of lawnmower racing. Brought together by the “need for speed” and friendly competitiveness of the 20 to 60 miles an hour sport, these people form an emotional bond like family. The camaraderie among racers include helping each other out in the pits, as well as, the whole racing community coming together to support the Mikula family, who host an annual Huntington’s Disease race, to create awareness about the little-known disease that has devastated their family. The edge-of-your-seat lawnmower races are captured from a variety of angles, including the jaw-dropping helmet camera footage of 4-time lawnmower racing champ Jayson Mikula. Mark Bell of Film Threat says On Your Mark, Get Set, Mow! is, “a blast to watch” and added, “you just want to jump in and race yourself.”
