The LeMons race season has entered a particularly crazy stretch, due to the break triggered by Chief Perp Lamm's wedding, and so we have races on back-to-back weekends. Here are the results from last weekend's New Orleans event.
Yes, a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia with a Hitchhiker's Guide theme defied the odds and took the 2010 Cain't Git Bayou 24 Hours of LeMons Index of Effluency trophy.
While Eyesore Racing has managed to take three winner-on-laps LeMons trophies, we never believed any other team could do it more than once. We were proved wrong today, when the Texas-winning Race Hard Race Ugly BMW 325iS triumphed.
In past races, those Cajun chefs have been more proficient with the seasonings than with the steering wheel. Black flags aplenty! Not this time, though— we started the day with their two E30s in the top ten. Then, disaster!
Falling squarely into the "Don't try this at home" department comes the latest ill-advised engineering breakthrough: LeMons Line-Lock! Say you're taking your LeMons RX-7 drag racing and want to show those 900-horsepower Novas some real burnout action. Here's how!
We just finished a huge meal of serious jambalaya, courtesy of those E30-drivin' Cajuns from Chauvin, Louisiana, and that capped a long, humid day of busting cheaters and rewarding the effluent.
Here at the Cain't Git Bayou 24 Hours of LeMons, at No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose, Louisiana, we just saw our first-ever Hemi-powered Chrysler. Since there's a dragstrip here, the quarter-mile trash-talking started immediately.
There's been a lot of talk at LeMons HQ about organizing a LeMons Hall Of Fame, but nobody agrees on the half-dozen or so cars that deserve first-round acceptance. Let's look at 41 LeMons Legends from the '09 season instead!
The 24 Hours Of LeMons Laissez Les Crapheaps Roulez event, which took place at Belle Rose's No Problem Raceway a couple of weekends back, provided some great photographic opportunities.
It's fun, that's what it is! Somewhat slow fun, granted, but the crazy body roll and music blasting from the roof-mounted PA speakers compensate for the lack of power.
The race is over, and it went right down to the wire. The "Shelby Celica" and the Dirty Some Beaches Honda wagon battled all day, and the Celica took the win!
