24 Hours of LeMons 2010 Schedule Goes Live

Film at Eleven!
Film at Eleven!

Wait, what’s this? News? I have no idea how to do this. I’m far better at gazing at my navel. Look! Lint!
The insane geniuses over at the 24 Hours of Lemons, the world’s greatest racing league, have just released their 2010 Events Schedule, and there’s no way around it. We’re astonished.
Somehow, they’ve managed to increase the number of events from 2009’s ten, to a mind-blowing 23 Events in 2010. And, I’d like to point out, not a single bloody one is anywhere near me. So I am forced to ask the LeMons organizers: Why do you hate me so much? I gave the damn kid back!
Full schedule can be found at the 24 Hours of LeMons website! Here’s a neat little summary below:

    1. Not to be a pedantic weenie (I know, too late) but, isn’t Buttonwiollow more Bakersfield than LA? BTW, my old w123 is still on the street in front of my house. I’d gladly contribute if anyone from San Diego want to form a team. To be clear, it DID NOT run when parked. Some kind of engine swap may be appropriate though … hmmm.

      1. Hell, the “Omaha” race isn’t even in the same state as that city. Not that I’m going to complain, MAM is a good track and I’m happy to see some more races in the central midwest. Maybe I’ll even be able to go to one this season (driving or otherwise)!

    1. Ok, I have been waiting forever to have a LeMons close enough to me. I have two possible drivers plus me (3 total) and maybe a fourth if he is up for it…..
      I have a facility to build the car. I have a race team I have helped with a hauler.
      some how, some way I’ll be at this one for sure.http://www.24hoursoflemons.com/chicago10/
      If everyone falls through, I’ll jump on a team that needs a seasoned wrench in the pits.

      1. well, this is moving fast. I have one confirmed to do it (brother). We have a theme also. “Hunting for a Win” Blaze Orange, Whitetail hunting theme.

        1. We have four, it took me just a few hours and I have four ready to go. The racing is on for next year at the Chicago Autobahn. Anyone who wants to join us, let me know!

          1. Well I’m graduating school in June and I’m not sure where I’ll end up once that happens, but if I’m still in the Chicago area afterwards then I might be willing to be of service since Madison is surprisingly the closest team I’ve found thus far. But again, much can change in the next 8 months so sadly I cannot make a commitment at the moment.

  1. How did you manage to hire Melissa Theuriau as the official host of the HoonCast News Network? I know, she harbors a secret love of Citroen DS and cattery 1980’s Peugeot diesels so she does it for free.

  2. On a scale of one to a zillion, I would say I’m a zillion excited to finally be able to go to an event. Yeah Phoenix!

    1. My brother-in-law and I might be at the Phoenix race, doing recon for a potential entry in the Buttonwillow event.

  3. While I’m saddened to see that Nelson Ledges isn’t on the 2010 schedule, I’m also happy that there are 3 races close enough to delude myself into racing at. That way I might be able to get more than one race in, once I get a team together and build a car. Assuming the Fiero lasts until the end of even one race.
    American Irony, here I come! (then, hopefully, the Detroit Bull Oil Grand Prix, and Rod Blagojevich Never-Say-Die 500)

  4. North Dallas Hooptie? Decatur is waaaay west of Dallas. No matter, that will be close enough for me to attend. Will y’all be alerting us of individual events as they draw near?

    1. I just Googled that track. They might as well have said the races were in Chicago, as it’s much closer than Detroit. Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo would be even closer.

      1. It looks to be a little closer to you than Nelson Ledges was/would have been, and about the same amount farther from me. I’m still going.

      1. Well not exactly Omaha, but three hours from my doorstep is close enough. Postal Jeep racing team anyone?

  5. You had me before, but even moreso with “Rod Blagojevich Never-Say-Die 500”. I assume there are plenty of toupes lined up for penalties…
    Any would-be LeMon Hoonigans in the Central KY area? I’m trying to get a team off the ground; got a few people and a car, just need a few more pieces of the puzzle to make it all a go!

  6. I am an hour from Joliet and have two couches and three air mattresses. Peoria Charter Coach runs shuttles from both Chicago airports to Joliet or Pontiac, where I live, for under $30.

    1. And I don’t know what kind of ideas the dudes at No Problem Raceway are getting, but “Circuit Grand Bayou”? “The Gulf South’s Only Motorsports Resort”?!
      BA-HAHAHAHAHAHA! Man, these guys are hilarious! It’s a decent track and all, but a resort?!
      Delusions of grandeur abound. I’ll see you all there.

  7. Not one, but two races at Gingerman! And Joliet! That’s like three chances for me to miss the race due to a conflict my wife scheduled unbeknownst to me.
    Also, Gingerman is nowhere near Detroit. It’s on the west side of the state, which might as well be a different world. It’s all Dutch and peaceful. Oh well, we’ll chalk that up to a rounding error and move on.

  8. Providence, my ass. That’s Springfield, Mass. (And, by association, Boston; Hotfid; Portland, Maine; Manchester…)
    Hmm, I’m half an hour from Fitchburg, then south to Wista and then down 90 to 84 and that’s that. Whether I’ll be able to make it, though, is another question – this year’s race coincided with my trip to Scotland, and next year’s is right before/as my partner flies over here. So there’s that. But in all likelihood I’ll be attending at least one day, albeit alone, and meeting you other crazy Ningland motherfuckers.
    Woo!

    1. Yep, only about 2.5 hrs from beantown, with the hammer down, and the creek don’t rise. Wish there were more nearby, too.

    2. Hopefully you can make it. I’ve driven down from Albany, NY for both NE races, and driven through (or maybe near, can’t remember) Fitchburg. You ought to go this year, I’ll overlook your absence the last two.

      1. Fitchburg really is the kind of city you drive through. Route 2 goes right across due south of it; that’s where us southwest New Hampshire dwellers get on for Boston.
        (I rode through Albany once, a few years ago.)
        It’ll be good to see you too, man.
        largeYodaPickup below me: Hell if I know, but I’m gonna find out!

    3. Do you know if n00bs are welcome? I almost went this year as a spectator, but ending up bailing when something else came up. I don’t have the cash or knowhow to put together a team.

      1. You can buy tix in advance at the site, but I’m sure if you showed up at the gate with your homies Jackson and Hamilton, you’ll get wristbanded faster than a SBC overheats!

    1. I was hoping for VIR, but I understand it’s kinda ‘spensive to rent. Summit Point’s cool though, and if it’s not a true 24-hour race, I think an evening trip to the half-assed casino might be in order.

  9. Woo hoo, Joliet! Now to get me a ’74 Dodge Monaco and fire up the Blues Brothers theme…
    So excited that there will finally be a LeMons event within driving distance!
    (PS – this site kicks taint, balls, and ass in one swing)

  10. Hot damn! I better be able to make it to some LeMons action this year, or I am going to be PISSED. I got screwed big time out of both of the LeMons South races, and Laissez les Crapheaps Roulez race. I must watch LeMons glory!
    Sidenote: Thanks Engineerd for telling me about this awesomeness that is the Hooniverse. I’ve found a new home.

  11. That’s okay. We’ll split the driving, the gas, and consume booze together. After the driving, naturally.

  12. I had better be able to make it to one of the Michigan events, or I’ll be a little sad panda. I’d like to say I’d be able to field a team (since the Cavalier is being retired from daily driver duty), but I’m still on a studenty budget, so spectating’s good enough for now.

  13. Wow, really not showing much love for the East Coast, huh? With a baby on the way in April, somehow I doubt I’d be able to make next season happen anyway, but still

  14. Damn! Los Angeles isn’t coming till December 2010!
    Oh well, at least it’ll let me get my (probably not gonna happen) Toyota truck with the 22RE ready.
    Sigh. A kid can dream can he?

  15. 4 races to go to from here in N. CA. I am in heaven and infineon, I can not believe. Time to fire up the iracing and get to practicing on that track. Yahoo!!!

  16. Lets get a Michigan team together. We can go to the first one, jot down our notes and what not and then enter the 2nd race.

    1. I’d be down for that! We could be the Mugger Movers! Or do a Star Trek theme on a Pulsar! Seriously, I’m in.

  17. There isn’t a message system on here is there? Not that I don’t trust you guys, its the robots searching the web for e-mail addresses, so I don’t want to post it here. Star Trek sounds mighty awesome. If your still on [REDACTED], I’ll send you a message.

  18. I know it’s an old post and everything but I just can’t seem to stop looking at her!

  19. I understand completely. If there wasn’t a Mrs. Jazdy, something tells me I would be in jail in Europe.

  20. In the beginning just remember it was darked and then someone smiled! try this:
    A little inaccuracy sometimes saves a ton of explanation. 🙂
