Chris Heerschap was nice enough to share these photos with us:
I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard of the 24 hours of LeMons, but it’s a car race for cars of $500 or less. Most all of the cars have some sort of theme, and my friends who entered my old car agreed on a FSM theme. I though it was cool until I saw the car, at which point I realized it was truly divine:
And another FSM themed car? What a great event.
This particular race took place in Summit Point, WV. – part of a series ranging across the country.
This article at detnews has a pretty good explanation of what this race series is about.
With 23 events around the United States in 2010, this amateur series offers wheel-to-wheel competition, with all the burning cars and hot tempers found at professional races. The hitch is that no vehicle can cost more than $500. This is a race of clunkers.
LeMons, a play on the famous 24 hours of Le Mans in France (Lemons, get it?), is open to any would-be-racer/imbecile with the gumption to put together a junker and a team.
Sounds like a good time.
