I got back from Sonoma Raceway the other day after driving in the 24 Hours of Lemons and pulled the video from one of my stints. I didn’t cut anything out, other than a couple of caution flags, so you’ll get to see me:
It is time. The Porsche time.
Getting ready for our 7th LeMons South race in Kershaw SC. In of the great things is the parade and block party in Camden. A good chunk of the town comes out.
Our Star Trek themed LeMons race car is coming together. Why Star Trek? Celebrating their 50th anniversery? Nope. Finding hope in the lessons it teaches? Nope. My 6 year daughter found the show a few weeks ago and likes Mr Spock. That is the only reason.
Paint job #6 for the Lemon. We had Starsky and Hutch, Elvis, Space Shuttle, an Al Gore car, Dukes of Hazzard meets Walking Dead and now this Star Trek Shuttle Craft.
MORE PURPLE CARS!

There’s one thing the 24 Hours of LeMons is adamant about: documenting your cheating. Any parts added to the car either need documentation or they’ll be assigned a value in inspections. If you swap “found” parts into an FD Mazda RX-7, you’re going to invoke the “Pratt & Miller Rule,” as this team did.
I made it onto the episode of Top Gear US where they ran the 24hrs of LeMons. For about 1/2 a second I’m seen driving the orange E30 (I know it’s me driving since I’m the only one on the team with a white helmet).
This is the greatest LeMons car of all time.

Insomnia sucks. Rally Chicken doesn’t. Have more Chicken.
Most of us have at least heard of the 24 Hours of LeMons racing series. Many of us have participated ourselves. But what if you have no race car, no team, next to no money, and just want to go hang out and watch a bunch of uniquely decorated crapcan race cars circle the track? I did exactly that at this past weekend’s…
It’s time for the 3rd annual Halloween Hooptiefest at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. I’m here currently fielding the word’s worst Dodge Daytona Shelby in it’s last ever race. We’re themed up as the magnificent Dodge HellKitten (for when 707hp is just too much). Car is through tech and we’re settling in for the night…
Blah blah #followfriday, whatever. Who you want to follow is Fluffy. Fluffy Bunny, Eater of Souls, rules all.
Rally Chicken got to be Wilderness Chicken in Utah for a bit. Enjoy the adventures of Chicken.
I’m facing a dilemma. How do you decide when it’s time to move on from a car. Actually no, that’s not the dilemma. I’m struggling with how to move on.
