2020 24 Hours of Lemons Halloween Hooptiefest ends in DNF

Well, that didn’t go as planned. The Buick crapped out on the first day of the 2020 24 Hours of Lemons Halloween Hooptiefest. In the seven years of racing our beast of a Buick with a park bench, this is our third DNF. The first one was overheating, the second was oil starvation, and now […]

We’re back for the 2020 24 Hours of Lemons Halloween Hooptiefest!

The fact that the 2020 24 Hours of Lemons Halloween Hooptiefest is happening is kind of a miracle. Whatever it took to make it happen, I’m glad it’s here. This will be the first race that I am doing in over two years. While other obligations kept me from competing, my teammates did two races […]

Last Call: Regal Dusk Edition

buick lemons hooniverse

This past weekend there was a very special 24 Hours of Lemons race. It was special in the fact that it was an actual 24-hour race, from 11:00am to 11:00am the next day, as oppose to the typical lemons races that are broken up into two days and halted for the night. The Hooniverse Buick […]

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: 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 […]

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, […]

24 Hours of Lemons: Buick nabs a class win at NHMS

We did it! We won our class at the 24 Hours of Lemons Halloween Hooptiefest at New Hampshire Motor Speedway! Yea, that’s right, we won. We got the trophy and the big cash payout that almost covered gas, hotels, and tolls. Yeah! Thanks, we appreciate your congratulatory chuckle and nod as you’re reading this. A […]

Motormouth – A Storytelling Event of Our Lemons Racing

My teammate Andy and I worked together some years back. Being two carguys stuck in the same cubicle farm we would discuss cars over the office messenger while looking more productive than anyone else. When the 24 Hours of Lemons came to the east coast we knew we had to be a part of it. […]

24 Hours of LeMons: The Real Hoopties of New Jersey 2017 Wrapup

Every time I look our hard earned Judge’s Choice trophy, I shed a tear. It’s because I really wanted to win our class and I got that instead. It’s quite depressing that after almost four years of Lemons racing that’s the piece of crap trophy we have to show for it. But we will keep […]

24 Hours of Lemons: Boston Globe reports on our NJMP race

Our rookie teammate for last month’s 24 Hours of LeMons at New Jersey Motorsport Park was my friend George Kennedy. Despite the fact that he is a full-time automotive journalist, we reluctantly allowed George onto the team. Before the race he has proven himself to be handy and during the race he has proven himself […]
