Hilarious Penalties for 24 Hours Racing It was my first time to a 24 Hours of LeMons race. As soon as I could see the track, I knew I wanted to do this.

Off-track excursions or spins were subject to penalties and that's where the 24 Hours of LeMons style fun ...

Meeting with Austin Coil in the small town the John Force Racing trucks make was awesome. Cruising ...

(They just become "killer" bracket cars) Many of you that were spectators at drag races during the late 60's, the 70's and early 80's probably remember a lot of the fantastic Top Fuel and Funny Cars that used to compete. Some of these cars may have been favorites of yours, but have you ever wondered what became of these ultimate drag race ...
