A modified, 30-year-old Cub Cadet lawn tractor will compete in a lawn mower racing event in Lacon, Ill., to benefit a local food pantry, according to this article. Justin "Wing Nut" Burgard, owner of Small Engine Specialty in Chillicothe, revamped the tractor after a customer abandoned it due to repair costs. However, Burgard fixed the engine, then added parts that release sparks and flames from the exhaust, this article says.
