When you bring a 40-year-old air-cooled Volkswagen to a LeMons race, you expect to finish way, waaaay down in the standings. When your Type 3 Fastback pulls off a 39th-place (out of 123) finish, you get the Index of Effluency!
Remember the Mid-Drive Crisis Mitsubishi Mirage? They all laughed when it entered the track! Well, nobody is laughing now, because the innovative Mitsu with the mid-mounted driver's seat now sits at the top of the Yeehaw It's Texas LeMons standings!
I'm too busy to take many photos during a LeMons BS Inspection— the gauntlet through which all entrants must pass in order to prove that they stayed within the $500 budget— when we have 120+ cars. Timelapse video time!
We're back at MSR Houston once again, and the LeMons Supreme Court sweated its way through a super-swampy hot day in Texas. Lots of Taurus SHOs, lots of BMW E36s, a couple of Mustang IIs, and much more!
Yes, it's Über Time again, after a hiatus of a couple of races (sorry, participants of the South Fall '09 and Lamest Day races, no ÜGs for you). Nearly 2,000 photos of the action from Texas!
Sure, some folks will get all excited about some BMW or other, but the real LeMons cognoscenti know the Index Of Effuency is what matters. Congratulations, Black Knight Racing: It's Just A Flesh Wound!
Things got pretty chaotic after the race and I've just got time to get you this crucial info before I board my flight back to California: the second-ever BMW E30 has won a LeMons race!
Working a 24 Hours Of LeMons race is exhausting, to put it mildly, so the LeMons HQ crew always seeks out the best pit party after a day's race session. The choice was easy last night!
When you're bringing the Traveling LeMons Circus to super-conservative Houston, what's the last thing that Texas races want to do? That's right, wear Mao caps and hold Little Red Books aloft while chanting revolutionary slogans!
