24 Hours of Lemons (Vodden The Hell Are We Doing?)
« on: May 31, 2016, 07:02:17 PM »
Well I just finished my second 24 hours of lemons race in the FX32 out on the new 5 mile track out at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows California.  Unfortunately because of weather, Mechanical problems and not knowing the track we did not do all that great coming in 117 out of 181 cars but it was a total blast and am looking forward to my next race in August at the Ridge in Washington.

Loaded up and ready to go with the new E450 V10 tow Van

This is pretty cool. Sorry you didn't finish higher but I bet it was still a pretty damn cool experience. Was it hard to get accepted? How many races do you get in a year?

I try to do 2-3 races a year I am hoping to race in Washington in august and Michigan in October.  it is very easy to get accepted just make sure you build your cage to spec and follow the safety rules and register in time and you will get a spot.
