24 Hours of Lemons Turns 200 (Races) This Weekend!

Look, I’m gonna keep this short, mostly because I’m lazy. The 24 Hours of Lemons is hosting its second consecutive dual-race weekend with Halloween Hooptiefest at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Get Yer Phil 500 (name for the esteemed Murilee Martin) at High Plains Raceway in Colorado. And what’s better than a two-race weekend? They’ll […]

24 Hours of Lemons: Get Ready for an All-Timer Weekend!

[Disclaimer: Eric Rood works for the 24 Hours of Lemons and is a total shill.] The 24 Hours of Lemons has, over the course of 12 years, run nearly 200 races. Until this coming weekend (and the following one), however, Lemons has never run two events on the same weekend. Not only will Lemons be […]

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 […]

24 Hours of Lemons 2019 Schedule: Races, Rallies, Concours, and Down Under

After 13 years, nobody has yet gotten wise to those idiots from the 24 Hours of Lemons and their inane $500 endurance-racing series. Indeed, Lemons has slipped another annual schedule out to the public. It serves less as a yearly planner for racers (who naturally are terrible at planning) and more of a notice to […]

24 Hours of Lemons: The Buick is back!

2018 has been a slow year for our 24 Hours of Lemons east coast team. We missed New Jersey and Thompson, all for various personal reasons mostly from my side. But now my teammates got race hungry and they said that they’re just doing it. Not only that, they decided to do something different. Instead […]

Scary crash at the 24 Hours of LeMons Thompson race

Life got in the way and my teammates and I are skipping most of this year’s 24 Hours of Lemons season. But like any good show, the race goes on. This weekend at the Thompson, CT there was one very dangerous wreck. For an unknown reason the brakes on the 420 410 Integra gave out. In […]

HooptieCon: Get Your Tickets, It's This Weekend!

By now, you’re probably sick of hearing about Radwood at HooptieCon on March 24 at Sonoma Raceway alongside the 24 Hours of Lemons’ Sears Pointless at HooptieCon Confusingly Presented by Yokohama (rolls right off the tongue). Bradley Brownell posted about HooptieCon here a few weeks ago and our podcasts have been chock full o’ HooptieCon […]

Project Haterade RX-8: Dr. Wankel's Legitimate Pharmacy DOMINATES Lemons at Barber

Was there ever any doubt? Mazda’s Renesis rotary engine is the best of the breed, a flawless engine design that’s proved perfect both on the street and track. Naturally, then, it was a sure thing that we’d obliterate the Lemons field with our cheaty race car. Or we would step on our own anti-submarine straps […]

HooptieCon: March 24th, Sonoma Raceway, Be There

As one of the founding members of Radwood, the car show for discerning 80s and 90s car fans, I’m pleased to announce that HooptieCon is going to feature the third ever Radwood on Saturday, March 24th, 2018 (just a few weeks away). No true ‘Con’ could ever revolve around just a single event, however, and […]

24 Hours of Lemons: NHMS Wrap-Up – we won class C and then "complained" about it

We didn’t complain, as Jay mentions in this video. I emailed Jay and asked if Lemons would be doing anything about the fact that a once competitive class B car can now hardly finish mid-pack of class B. I also asked if minimum pit-stop amount requirement could be a good idea. Speedcreep, as someone called it, […]
