Our Lemons/Chump Race car!

We have campaigned this car since late 2009 in 24hr Lemons and in ChumpCar. With a class win recently in Lemons, a 4th place National Championship finish, many 2nd and 3rd place race finishes, and other trophies under our belt we decided it was time to dedicate some time to a new theme.

New Theme ( Debuts August 20th @ Road America - )

We got a few finishing touches to put on it yet like the wheels and some missing stickers, but you get the idea.

What do you guys race for a car? Looks like south region events for you guys? Our car was really bad before we painted and etc. Hopefully the BS inspection goes well, lol. Should since theme is void but you never know.

We'll be at Road Atlanta in December for I believe a Chump Car event.

I've wanted to build one for sometime but can never get a team together and no one wants to spend money.

Here are a couple of older pics, it looks a lot worse now :P

Race car:
During a race at CMS:


Picture side (with me in the drivers seat getting ready to head out for my stint):


The not-so-picture side:




This is one of the reasons it looks a lot worse now:

And no, that's not me in the Ronald McDonald race suit. This is our least experienced driver and he made quite a few mistakes leading to this one.

I love it.

Both of these cars are exactly what is great about Lemons/ChumpCar

There was a modded out Sanford&Son pickup truck at a large car even this spring. Believe he competes in ChumpCar.

Paintjob? Bah that's team lazy theme fitting the replacement chassis as we bought it :P previous owner wrecked it, replaced panels, then didn't check oil and threw a rod. We needed a chassis for our driveline so it worked out, just had to do the auto to manual conversion on it.

Yeah, those are NASCAR guys. They run that and some other massive cars. Did you check the rear inboard brakes on that truck?

It's stupid fast though. They don't try to win (they are just having fun) otherwise they wouldn't be allowed to run.

The car to beat in the SE is Riley racing's car (yes, THAT Riley...). Some Flat Out is fast, and the biohazard MR2, and some Miatas. We've had 1st a lot before mechanical or brake issues
