24 Hours of LeMons People's Curse
This is the People's Curse (Car #45) for the 24 Hours of LeMons Arse-a-Palooza 2008 at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA. Other teams voted to have this car semi-destroyed. Jay Lamm asked the excavator operator to go easy on it - many may have voted simply because it was fast. The car DID return to the race an hour or two after... and was even faster with less weight! Great work team #45.
Big Sausage Roll at Buttonwillow 24 Hours of Lemons
Buttonwillow Histrionics - 24 Hours of Lemons: As Big Sausage and V8olvo battle it out for first place after 18 hours of driving on the last lap, Big Sausage's red Acura takes the "Lost Hill" corner, on the final 1/4 lap a bit too fast and flips. Team Lightning McQueen (driver: Baja Trish) was in the right place to barely catch it on our roof cam. Luckily the Big Sausage driver was unscathed physically, but I'm sure he's mentally and emotionally scarred for life.
Pay attention to the "Lost Hill" in the top left, just above the blue BMW at around 0:35 to see the roll in the distance. Then stay tuned as we drive past the "CARnage".
