24 Hours of Lemons Captain's Toolkit: Be Clueless Like a Lemons Veteran

[Disclaimer: Eric Rood works for the 24 Hours of Lemons and is a total shill.]
Getting started in the 24 Hours of Lemons can be difficult, we know that. That’s applicable both to your Lemons car and to what happens when you sign up for the endurance-racing series for $500…only to realize you have no idea what in hell you’ve gotten yourself into. While Lemons can’t fix your heap of a car, we hardy fools at Lemons HQ have managed to build a toolkit to help first-timers (and 50th-timers) get on track toward…uh…getting on track. Check out the Captain’s Toolkit here.

You can use durable checklists to track your registration, to build your car to pass tech, and to survive that first weekend at the racetrack. In addition, the Toolkit has advice on finding Lemons cars, finding (better) teammates, and finding out what this whole silly Lemons thing is anyway. We’ll be adding some features over time and, of course, Eric is always happy to hear feedback if there are things you think we’re forgetting.

And of course, be sure to check out the 2019 Lemons schedule to figure out where you want to make your big splash in Lemons World.

    Fixed it for you.

  2. The Captain’s Toolkit is a great place to start but really there’s no substitute for extensive, repeated experience in order to become profoundly clueless.

  3. That last photo is amazing, but I can’t imagine having enough free time to build something like that
