Welcome to the 24 Hours of LeMons. Just when things are looking good, you're leading, you're having the time of your life, all your friends think you're awesome – mechanical disaster.
That was the story mid-day at the 24 Hours of LeMons Reno-Fernley. The #46 Z car of Team Hanky Too was winning. Then the smallest film of oil that goes around the rod bearing suddenly went away and SIEZE! The motor is shot. That just means it is time to queue up the all night motor swap. This is when your friends drink a lot of beer and forget to hold the flashlight where you want it while you bust your knuckles in the damn radiator fins. Good times. That's what LeMons is all about. And yes, that is the Italians right behind still on the lead lap. Photo by ASK Photography.
