A Jalopnik Reader Just Won The Index Of Effluency At The 24 Hours Of LeMons

A'72 Dodge Coronet is not exactly what comes to mind when you think of endurance racing. This $500 craptacular sedan, though, just won the Index of Effluency at the 24 Hours of LeMons, and a Jalopnik reader helped make it happen.

Over the weekend's 24 Hours of LeMons 2012 Gator-O-Rama, Viking03's 1972 V8 Dodge yacht won the prestigious Index of Effluency award for doing the best with the worst car.

The whole event was covered by the ever-ravishing Jalopnik alum Murilee Martin for Car and Driver and you should go check out the write-up there. Before that, don't forget to congratulate Viking03, and ask him any questions about what it takes to be top of the heap at $500 racing!
