Those unfortunate souls who've registered for the "Goin' For Broken" 24 Hours of LeMons event this May 23 and 24 have another justice to contend with. Yours truly will be joining Dr. Lieberman and the matronly Ms. Martin at the Reno-Fernley Raceway to doll out punishments with extreme prejudice. We're already cooking up a Swine Flu penalty (something involving pickled pig's feet, stale chicharones and a Hazmat suit) and I'm putting the finishing touches on a Justice Souter-themed sentence while the Loverman tries to scam us a new set of wigs and robes. While we can't spoil all the surprises, the stencil you see about will be painted onto any Chrysler product "competing" in Reno to honor the automaker's latest union.

Registration ended on March 14, so those of you who missed the deadline narrowly avoiding our cold steel scythe of justice. But if you want to come out and enjoy the madness, spectator tickets are available for either a single day or the entire wretched weekend. Hit up the 24 Hours of LeMons site for more and check out the new LeMons forum if you're so inclined.

      Please SPEEDVISION televise this, id much rather watch this backwoods art racing then most the shows/racing that are on speedvision currently.... and id rather see this than nascar and im a huge nascar fan ! There aint no flipping reason they cant televise at least a couple of these a year, Im quite sure the viewers would be there, of course they dont have to show the whole race but the backstories of how all these cars came together, the teams that made it there and all the hooligans of the race and the last 30 or so laps would make great television !!

      I live in Reno and will be there. We missed out on this race, but have been looking around for a car in case they come back again. Great track, and there should be all kinds of mayhem with cars sailing off into the sagebrush.

      The real question is...how many of these clunkers will actually make it up the rather steep "hoot and hollar" esses? I'd say this is the most challenging track layout so far!

      I could have used the current Fiat logo, but it doesn't look as good in stencil form.

      Oh dear... I hope they don't spray that logo onto the Yugo. It will ruin the carefully developed patina of rust I've been working on...
