Things will be a little quiet this weekend at MF as myself and a few frequent contributors are heading to Ohio for this weekend’s 24 Hours of LeMons at Nelson Ledges road course. This is the only true 24 hour race in it’s series. Therefore the race runs from noon on Saturday through noon on Sunday.

What is the 24 Hours of LeMons?
Each LeMons race is for cars purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of 500 dollars or less. But before reaching the grid, you’ll have to survive trials like the Personal-Injury-Lawyer Anti-Slalom, the Marxist-Valet Parking Challenge, and the Wide Open Throttle Rodthrowapalooza. Twelve hours into the race, the car voted Peopleâ€™s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted Peopleâ€™s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed. At the end of 24 hours, a gala awards ceremony plies the survivors with trophies, plaques, and four-figure purses in canvas bags full of nickels. What’s not to like?
