The Top 28 Lemons of the Mutually Assured Destruction of Omaha 24 Hours of LeMonsS

After 35 LeMons races, a Volkswagen has finally taken the overall win! With a small field due to the usual first-time-at-new-track deal, the race for the win on laps became a Supra-versus-Golf affair early on.

The JBR Dogma Supra stayed within a single lap of the Short Bus Golf for much of the race, but never could close the gap. Meanwhile, some serious vintage drag racing madness was taking place on the adjacent dragstrip, while interesting flying machines from nearby Offutt Air Force Base added to the din of roaring engines in the Nebraska (actually Iowa) sky.
