24 Hours of LeMons: ‘Southern Discomfort’ Preview For Carolina Motorsports Park

Eric Rood April 27, 2017 24 Hours of Lemons, Motorsports No Comments

OK, Hoons and LeMoneers, here’s the deal. I’m sitting here with the 24 Hours of LeMons preview of the “Southern Discomfort” race at Carolina Motorsports Park to write and it goes live on the site in about 90 minutes. I have written none of it nor prepared for it. Get ready for a whirlwind round of “Write That Thing,” just like that time Isaac Asimov wrote a novel during a TV show, except with lunch beers and Dan Deacon playing at Top F–k-ng Volume.

Ready? Here we go. Lots of GIFs after the jump, you might need to let the page load a bit first. Sorry/not sorry.

Carolina Motorsports Park hosted one of the first few races outside of California and has become one of the series’ homes away from home along with MSR Houston, which the series visits next week. This weekend’s entry list includes 56 entries, which is a bit low, but it’s a fairly august gathering and fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.

Key got stuck, no time to fix, here’s the unofficial entry list. [Smashes laptop against desk, shouts for more lunch beer from barkeep.]

Shit, let’s just list some of the (semi-)interesting junk out with some onomatopoeia (and I should get a medal for spelling onomatopoeia correctly without looking it up). Or better yet, a GIF from my Stash-O-LeMons-GIFs. I should edit this paragraph for clarity, but I’m proud of my spelling achievement and ffffffffffffffffffffffffff.

#460 Tunachuckers (1975 Ford LTD)

#508 Team SOB (1975 Ford Gran Beemerino) – [Possibly/Hopefully Team SOB’s E30 turned into The Dude’s ‘75 Torino.]

#54 Knoxvegas Lowballers (Ford Contour Hooptiecorn) and #560 Knoxvegas Lowballers (Mercedes 560SL)

#17 Lunar Lemons (Chevy Astro)

#19 Team Sputnik (Nissan Sentra)

#170 Popcorn Racin’ (1994 Buick Regal)

#128 Duff Beer (1981 Jet Electra 007)

#8 Caster Oil (1982 ToyotaStarlet)

#888 Bear Mangled Winner (BMW E36)

#944 Mo’ Tow Fo’ Yo’ Dough (Porsche 944)

So who’s maybe gonna win the race? Maybe #13 Grim Reaper Racing (Ford Mustang V6), #133 Moldecarlo (G-Body Chevy Monte Carlo), Irritable Dad Syndrome (Mazda Miata), or #212 The Silver Bullets (Ford 302-swapped Nissan 240SX).

Follow along this weekend with live timing on Race-Monitor.com, the Race Monitor app, or SpecialtyTiming.com. Here’s some other (ir)relevant information and ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.
