I will have more on this soon, as I’m still waking up from a weekend at a 24 Hours of LeMons race. But I wanted to share that lead image. That’s our oil pan after the initial parade lap on Saturday morning. On lap ZERO, our engine turned on the tumble dry setting and sent stuff to places they should not be.
We pulled the pan to assess the damage. The assumption was we would all go “…well shit”, rip off our wristbands, and crack a beer as soon as legally able to at a hot track. But Tim (Mr. Mad Science) suggested a quick look at Craigslist to see if maybe someone was selling a Ford inline-6.
And someone indeed was. The engine was cheap with low miles. And it was an hour and a half away. So soon I’ll tell you the full story of the weekend that saw us race zero laps on Saturday and around 100 laps on Sunday.
