As many of you know, there are a lot of things you can say on the internet that will perhaps earn you a phone call from Mom. Like "Help, I broke my legs," or "Showed up late to work this morning, still wasted #totalrager #worthit" or, "I just killed a man for fun! #rager #adorbsballs" and so on. Well, this might be one of… »
I put a bid in on this that I thought would immediately lose, I was wrong. However if I win it means I may have a Lemons car if anybody want to start a team. »
I did it. I took the first step and bought a car. This baby cones courtesy of NSF racing. It is a 1962 Plymouth Fury. It has several features that are ideal in a race car. »
Joined a LeMons team and working on a build to run the June event at Buttonwillow. We scored a "decent-running" e30 318is that might need some engine work. "Potatoe-chipped" the doors to lose some weight and make room for the extended door bars. Stripped the dash and interior. »

I found a good article about the real-world costs of running a team on Speed:Sport:Life, entitled: Racer Boy: 24 Hours of LeMons or Endurace Racing for the Financially and Mentally Challenged. I also found the Car and Driver article, Beaters Rule! The 24 Hours of LeMons. It's a good read if you haven't already seen it. … »
