Follow these 10 Tips to Survive and Thrive at SEMA Top 10 Tips to Survive SEMA   by Karma Carlson of Chaotic Customs We live in Kansas. That’s a long haul to Las Vegas! 1,262 miles to be exact which equals out to 17 hours and 50 minutes of driving. Pull a trailer and travel with two women and that time increases by a good six hours.

Off-track excursions or spins were subject to penalties and that's where the 24 Hours of LeMons style fun ...
Only $500 for 24 Hours of Fun Racing I wrote about the 24 Hours of LeMons (yea, I spelled that right) in another blog about the "Strict Racing Rules". I expected some easy going people out to have a great time. I found'm! It took the "Eyesore Racing" shown above 6 months of weekends to put their 94 Mazda Miata together. The car, built for $500 or less by the rules, was made from 2 Miatas practically welded together in the middle. One car had front end ...
