The 24 Hours of LeMons is restricted to cars that were purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of $500 or less. At most venues, the racing consists of tech inspection and track testing on Friday; long-ass endurance-race sessions on Saturday and Sunday; and breaks for sleeping, eating, and Band-Aid application every night. At least once a year, we also hold a straight 24-hour endurance race. Count on plenty of noise, prizes, water fights, and questionably civilized fun before, during, and after the track sessions. Finally, assuming you’re still standing, there’s the gala awards ceremony, wherein we present trophies, plaques, and winner’s purses paid out in nickels.
For people who aren’t working on cars (including everything from changing an engine to checking the air in the tires), all-access spectator passes are always available at the gate–they’re $30 and good all weekend. If you want to help wrench, you must pre-register with a team as a crew member.
