    24 Hours of Lemons related stuff

    Just this week, on Jay Leno's Garage (on CNBC cable or their app), part of the show had Jay joining a Lemons team for a race out in California. Overall Jay is a totally awesome car guy, but they seemed to have more than a few cars hitting each other in their wet race, so I'm going to be a little snobby here and say that even in Lemons you should not be hitting other cars, and at least in the one that I drove and others I have watched, contact is very rare.

    Having said that, my son and his buddies are racing a Miata in a Lemons race this weekend in South Carolina, and I'm following along on the Race Monitor app for live timing, and a few messages and photos from my son. After day 1, they are in 10th overall out of 90 or so cars, so they're doing very well. As you might imagine, a Miata uses a lot less gas, brake pads, tires, and etc. than their previous car a 70s Dodge Coronet that kept blowing motors! There's a bit of a day 1 recap on my blog (linked below), so here's a few photos.

    They went with a goofy PopCopy theme for this team, complete with aprons and name tags like the skit on the old Chappelle Show. Lemons is all about having fun, that's for sure!

    Awesome! Car looks great and a great result.

    Lemons has become serious racing with a lot of very talented teams. Running 10th is an accomplishment! Hope they pull off the entire race and have a good finish. I've wanted to get involved for years. But haven't even done research on gettingnonvolved. Dont know where I'd find the time. But I have a full shop, and our recycling business, I get cars with great lemon potential all the time for nothing. Maybe one day......
