Grassroots Motorsports wraps up $2007 Challenge

While we're mere hours away from installing an eBay-special driveshaft into Project LeMons, the crew over at Grassroots Motorsports has officially wrapped up its $2007 Challenge. We can only imagine what we'd do with an extra $1,507. Maybe strap a snowmobile motor where the passenger seat would reside that powers an engine cooling fan from an M1 tank to suck our RX-7 to the tarmac, ala Chaparral 2J. Well, Cheaparral Racing (get it?) did exactly that to a 1989 Chevy Corvette, creating over 1000 pounds of down force and waling away with the win at GRM's 7th $2007 Challenge.

The "Sucker 'Vette" as it's been affectionately dubbed, joined a host of other competitors, ranging from an over-riced Civic to a Zamboni, and all the standings can be viewed over at GRM's site. We've included a couple of videos shot during the event after the jump.
