24 Hours of LeMons

April 28, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

There are no multi-million dollar sponsors, no race teams with dozens of pit crew workers. Drivers sleep not in luxurious motorhomes but often in tents pitched on muddy ground. Each year Gingerman Raceway in South Haven hosts The Cure for Gingervitis auto race, part of the 24 Hours of LeMons series held across the country. Dozens of drivers compete in the endurance race where the primary restriction is that the cars must be valued at $500 or less. While rules govern the technical side of the cars, nothing stops the teams' imagination and creativity when it comes to decorating. Got to love these guys.
