Right before a race weekend my favorite person on the planet is the UPS man. That truck and the dude in those sexy brown shorts are just irresistible. But seriously folks, I need the UPS man to keep our little race team rolling. Yesterday, he dropped off a cornucopia of goodies: new radio gear from Sampson Racing Radios, a new tire rack for our racing trailer from Pit Posse Motorsports, endurance brake pads from Carbotech Brakes, a rearview mirror from I/O Port Racing Supplies and new stickers from Figstone Graphics. What are we going to do with all of these random items? Well, hopefully win the 24 Hours of LeMons at Infineon this weekend.

Endurance racing is never easy. It isn’t like regular driving, where you worry about your insurance here and making your commute to and fro. It isn’t even like regular racing. You have to go fast, but not too fast. You have to stay up for hours on end, but be sharp enough to make quick decisions. You have to order people around, but also get along with your teammates. And most importantly, you have to win. At Krider Racing we have done all of these things right, and we have also done a lot of these things wrong. Recently we remembered how to do them right again and found ourselves showered in beer and holding up a first place trophy. Here is the story of the long endurance racing road back to victory lane.
The 24 Hours of LeMons Sears Pointless race last weekend was host to 148 teams racing $500 cars. Once the checkered flag dropped on Saturday night, then the action switched from the world famous twelve turn technical road course of Infineon Raceway to a sloped four lane wooden straight track for teams racing $5 cars –pinewood derby cars.
Krider Racing/Speed:Sport:Life wins the “good class” at the 24 Hours of LeMons at Infineon raceway this weekend in their Big Sausage Pizza Delivery themed Acura Integra.
Krider Racing/Speed:Sport:Life finished the first day of the 24 Hours of LeMons Infineon in second place out of 147 entries. The team POS FedEx (F’edUp) themed BMW is one lap ahead of the Big Sausage Pizza Delivery themed car with eight more hours of racing to go tomorrow. Krider Racing has to thank I/O Port Racing Supplies, Atomic Speedware, Carbotech Brakes, and ST Suspensions for a great running car.
We’ll give you updates on the event at Speed:Sport:Life as the results come in.
