The second-annual Goin' For Broken race turned out to be a serious nail-biter, with the cruising-to-massive-victory Death Cab V8olvo blowing up with 40 minutes to go and an E30, a Miata, and an SE-R battling for the win.

As it turned out, the Nissan edged out Eyesore Racing by about 25 seconds, denying the Eyesores their fourth LeMons victory. We had two motorcycle-engined cars, four Porsche 914s, a couple of beautifully modified BMW E30s, and only one rollover. For on-yer-roof-prone Thunderhill, that's quite an accomplishment!
