34 races in, and a Nissan Z Car finally took an overall LeMons win! They said it could never happen, but then they also said that Saabs and Taurus SHOs couldn't win. Let's check out the competition!

With an Opel GT, a Daihatsu Charade, a Fiat 124 Spider, an E85-powered Civic, a huge purple Caddy DeVille, and the usual assortment of battered Altamont LeMons veterans, we saw a lot of nuts, bolts, connecting rods, bumpers, oil pans, and mannequins littering the race track over the weekend. The race for the win on laps was close from green to checkered, and the Charade-versus-Überbird battle for the Class Bad trophy was a true nail-biter.

We saw the usual strong assortment of IOE and People's Choice contenders that we've come to expect from the West Coast events, and the race for the overall win stayed close all the way to the end.
