*brace for shameless plug* Brought to you by Team Carbeque! www.thecarbeque.com, it's our broke ass Lemons team that, when we can't put up entry to put our own car in, we hang out with our friend Soggy and his magnificent blue Simca 1204...and make videos instead (and eat bacon, copiously).

Chump Car at Road America, Oct 20, 2013, Hollywood, Sunday Race Start, Front Facing
Green Flag drops at 7:44. The first 7+ minutes is a 2 wide formation lap.
Sunday start of the 2013 Chumpionship race at Road America. This was a
continuation of Saturdays Race. The race starts in heavy fog and damp
conditions. It's also damn cold and my hands are not happy. Should have
worn that second pair of gloves again like during the April RA race. It's
too bad the GoPro craps out, as Emitlaer, Mayhem and myself battle it out
the entire stint, turning pretty consistent 2:56-2:57 lap times with Mayhem
and I catching back up to the Realtime car and battling hard until they pit
for what I believe is a bad wheel bearing. Mayhem (Brent driving) also has
a couple epic slides through turn 1 that would have been spectacular in HD.
I have a few very close calls during the heat of battle. @11:20 #197 and I
almost trade paint. @25:35 and again @26:26 #421 gives me the chopper.
@33:00 we go three wide entering turn 5 and have a "moment". The local
yellow @ 13/14 (34:45) slows the pace a bit and spaces us out for a short
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

Highlights from the Loudon Annoying 24 Hours of LeMons race at New

24 Hours of Lemons - Sonoma Raceway - 03/25/13
I had a fun battle with Lars Wolfe (in the white and orange striped Focus)
over the course of an hour. At 11 minutes in Lars and I swap spots so he
can play the hunter. You can see him in my rear view mirror most of the
time. What a blast!
Can't wait to hook up the rear brake lines on this Rabbit and see what it
can really do!

TRD Ferguson - ChumpCar - Road America - October 20, 2013
Here's TRD Ferguson's start of the race on Sunday. We were able to move
through the field pretty well until our brakes started fading pretty badly.
The stock brake system isn't really able to handle the speeds produced by
our new engine. At least a brake upgrade will make a nice winter project
