The 16th race in LeMons history took place at Stafford Motor Speedway last weekend, and we saw Hondas, Alfa Romeos, and Volvos absolutely dominate this time around.

In fact, the only Top Ten cars not made by Honda, Alfa Romeo, or Volvo were a Nissan 240SX and a Lincoln Continental Mark VIII (in 6th and 10th place, respectively). We saw some great themes and costumes at this race, too, as you can tell by looking at the above photo of the Victors Of War team, a Golf-racing bunch of New Jersey mooks. We also saw an extremely tough Index Of Effluency field, including a Saab 99, a Datsun 510, a '63 Corvair, a Peugeot 504, and a Chevy Citation X-11.

Chief Perpetrator Lamm, his flinty cold heart apparently slightly softer than usual for some reason, allowed the Citation X-11 team to substitute their Corolla- which we last saw upside-down at LeMons South- for the Chevy, which blew its engine during the transponder testing laps (it actually gets worse than that; we've seen LeMons racers blow up getting off the trailer in the past). After that, the Endurance Karting Miata team- you may remember them as the winners of the New England '08 race- was permitted to substitute another so-called $500 Miata after their engine started spitting valves out the tailpipe.

Here they are, every single car that managed to limp through at least a single lap at the 24 Hours Of LeMons New England 2009. Thanks to Nick Pon, Blake Rong, Jim Brennan, Terry Shea, WTIC Fox 61, Andy Wallwhore, Ron Vickers, and The Knights Who Say Ni-ssan for the photos!
