The Mob Has Spoken: The Superkak Racing Mustang GT Must Die!

We had another landslide vote in the 24 Hours Of LeMons People's Curse: the Superkak Racing v2.0 1995 Ford Mustang GT has a date with some heavy construction equipment!

Now, in my opinion, these guys were totally legit on the $500 car-cost front; they had extensive documentation of all their expenses and all the money they got selling parts... but that's not how their competition saw it. Not only that, we hear that they weren't driving in gentlemanly fashion at all times, so that's all she wrote for this Stang. This time, we had a donated appetizer for The Crusher's hungry jaws: the Grayman Motor Club's Mazda 626, which was so tired from winning 7 dirt-track trophies in recent months that it more or less fell apart after about 10 minutes of LeMons racing. So, prospective LeMons racers, keep in mind that the battle is only half done when you sell the judges on your car's budget- you still need to convince the other teams that you're legit!

Here's some in-car video from the car. Damn, they were fast!

They knew the risks when they signed up. The people's curse isn't exactly a secret amongst LeMons racers.

The crushing jaws of heavy equipment is only one fate possible if you bring a ringer. The organizers have yet to invoke the $500 claim rule, but that is a lingering threat if you choose to cheat.

Blatant cheating is as much, or more, against the spirit of a $500 beater race as the serious nature of the punishment possibilities. (Unless blatant cheating is accompanied by even more blatant bribery)

Bring a ringer and you could lose it. Drive like a dick, and you could lose it. Those are both pretty high risks for a bag of nickels that doesn't even cover costs for a legitimate team.

The lessons to take away from this are: Bring an actual $500 car, and drive clean.

Have fun out there.
