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!
