Click above for an action-filled gallery of the 24 Hours of LeMons: Reno

Monaco. Indy. Reno. Sure, the first two have fancy TV coverage and all kinds of history working in their favor this weekend, but Reno has LeMons, hilarious cars, and Damon on the ground covering the events as they happen via Twitter. He's posting photos and video with his updates, which you can (and should) follow at http://www.twitter.com/autobloglemons.

Special thanks go out to Autoblog reader Dat Nguyen, who headed to Reno specifically because we saw that we were there. Dat caught up with Damon and then cemented his status in the Autoblog Reader Hall of Fame by taking some great photos for us, a sampling of which you can look at in the gallery below. He's got even more posted up at his Flickr account, which you should absolutely check out as well. So, big ups to Dat, and to Damon for tweeting away feverishly to keep us appraised of the ongoing wheeled mayhem. Watch for more updates from Damon today after he gets up and addresses some issues we're sure he'll be dealing with before the festivities in Reno get back underway.

If you missed Damon's Day 1 summary, check it out here.

      Please stop putting stuff on twitter. Or at least put a summary up here after the even has completed. I really don't want to know how they event is going in 140 characters or less. Are you really trying to make your target market 'tweens?

        Yeah, twitter is a horrid way to do just about anything. The worst of all worlds.

        2nd. So freaking sick of Twitter this, Twitter that. Twitter sucks.

        And I have to work, otherwise I would go out and watch :-(

      It's funny, I always look at these LeMons pics and see many cars I'd like to own. I have a soft spot for BMW E30s, E28s, Volvo 140s, 240s and 740s, and Datsun 240Zs and 510s. Anything with RWD and modest power makes exploring the limits fun at even low speeds. They can be cheap fun without as much risk.

      Also, was that a pic of a fastback Alfa? How uncommon is that in the States?

      Excellent photography, looks like a lot of fun.

      I hope one of the Volvos wins :-)

      That Fiero-as-Landspeeder gets a big thumbs-up from me too.

      I seriously think this is perhaps the coolest organized sports event of all time. There isn't one vehicle in these pics that doesn't make me smile and climb behind the wheel of.

      We're doing the twitter feed just for ease of use. I can post from my phone, upload pics and videos, and generally keep you up to date in a more timely fashion. It just works.

      Dat Nguyen? Did you get to see his Superbowl ring? ;)
