Dennis Simmons Wins Father Mows Best
Takes home Husqvarna Riding Lawnmower
from Maximum Outdoor Equipment Service
With a time of 25.59 seconds, Dennis Simmons had the fastest time of all the dads who took their turn around the annual Father Mows Best obstable course competition at Maximum Outdoor Equipment Service, hosted by KFDI's morning team of Brian and Kellie.
Plenty of dads gave Dennis a run for his money on Saturday morning (6/16/12), but in the end the Wichita truck drivin' dad held on to the top spot. "I practiced all week shifting gears," said Dennis after the win. Dennis likes Father Mows Best. This is his second year to participate.
During this year's event the dad's were given the task of backing the mower up and that proved to be a pivotal moment for many dads.
Second place honors went to Krandall Johnson. "If I had been in first place I would have given the riding lawn mower to the second place finisher because I came to win the push mower," Krandall said. Last year, Krandall came in third and took home a Husqvarna weed eater.
Martin Papps came in third and won a gas powered Husqvarna leaf blower for his efforts.
The first 50 Fathers to sign up receive a four pack of Sunday tickets to the Country Stampede in Manhattan.
