Autumn brings about many changes in the year, but perhaps the most important change is that 24 Hours of LeMons teams turn over a new leaf, shedding their cars just as automotive writers toss out so many overwrought story ledes. Yes, the end of a racing season finds LeMons teams moving up, moving on, or sometimes just plain moving, leaving the budding crapcanista to benefit with a reasonably priced, already-built racecar.
