You never know what's going to happen at a 24 Hours of LeMons race. Two Mitsubishi products in the top ten of the standings? Amazing! We also saw the oldest car in LeMons history: a 1956 Renault 4CV.

When the dust settled at High Plains Raceway, somewhere between Denver and the Kansas line, it turned out that the winning Ghetto Motorsports RX-7 had increased Mazda's total number of LeMons titles to eight, three ahead of tied-for-second-place BMW and Toyota.
