Oh damn! Just weeks (though it feels like days) after completing the mega-epic 2009 Houston Gator-O-Rama, the traveling automotive freak show better known as the 24 Hours of LeMons is once again venturing below the Mason-Dixon line. Why so soon? Big $$$ Turns out that the further south you take LeMons, the better it works. As you travel further away from the land of Burning Man and hemp-flavored honey, the cars get less arty and more race oriented. Sure, there’s much argument as to whether or not less art car is a good thing. But there’s no denying that the spiritual home of NASCAR makes for some hella entertaining amateur crap car racing. And the locals definitely appreciate the races. In fact, the last time Team LeMons hit the humble ‘burg of Kershaw, South Carolina around one thousand spectators showed up to cheer on the smoking, short-circuiting heaps of junk. So yes, by the time LeMons hits New Orleans this June, it’ll take place in the Superdome. This here race, taking place over April 4-5 at the Carolina Motorsports Park, will feature more obnoxious teams, worse cars (96 of ’em this time out), worse drivers, better BBQ and my favorite — more booze! Y’all had better be there, as only a true Judas would not come out and support a team called Heavy Metal that’s going racing in a 1972 Ford LTD. Personally, I’m very much looking forward to meeting Team Fat Bottom Girls. Team Eager Beavers, too. Oh, and every single one of the participating cars is listed out after the jump. So, jump!
