24 Hours of LeMons Thunderhill wrap-up

The Jaloptikons made the trek north this past weekend to take in the final 24 Hours of LeMons event at the Thunderhill Raceway and after making the long slog back to their respective homes, they've put together a comprehensive list of the top 50 competitors that ran the crap-can race.

The inaugural event's winners, Red Meat and Poontang, were forced to remove their stripper pole at the last minute, but despite the 11th hour emasculation of their 1.6-liter 1999 Mazda Protégé, they took home $1000 in unrolled nickels for surviving the two day event.

According to Murilee and Johnny's race report, the Thunderhill event was a totally different beast compared to the one we participated in back in October at the Altamont. Not only is the track comprised of several of high-speed straights and turns, the organizers were none to shy about black flagging any team whose aggressive driving put other competitors at risk. Three cheers and a broken tie-rod for that!

We're already beginning to plot our revenge on the Altamont in May, but in the meantime, check out Jalopnik's coverage here.
