The Drive with Alan Taylor

Race $500 Cars at 24 Hours of LeMons | SEGMENT 6 | #285

April 13, 20176 min
Does a long-ass endurance race with a terrible (and CHEAP) car sound like your idea of a good time? For automotive journalist, George Kennedy III, it may be heaven. 24 Hours of LeMons is a car race with an alarmingly inexpensive spending cap of $500 per vehicle (not including safety features such as brakes and tires). George has witnessed some very bizarre cars out on the track, the most notable of which was a Monte Carlo body on a Toyota LR chassis. This is a REAL race complete with a unique set of wacky rules; if you don't stay on the track, then you must either solve a trigonometry problem in pit row or drive with a person saran-wrapped to the top of your car - Yeah, wacky. Join us for more on the irresistibly eccentric event. | Listen to Full Episode #285 Learn more about guests and topics featured in this segment... Guest: George Kennedy III ? Bio: George Kennedy ?
