    Default Lemons Buttonwillow

    Had a blast at BW this weekend. Team Cheese Z Racing had their best finish ever coming in 13th out of about 130 cars after 2 days of crazy w2w racing. Brain fades on our part cost us 5-6 laps. Had those been avoided we would have been just out of the top 10.

    Weather was awesome including sunsets.

    I need to get my hands on some pictures from my team members to tell my whole story (if anyone cares). The fact that we even made it to the track with the car is where the story begins (and almost ended).

    Our weapon:



    For our second black flag we were ordered to construct a life-sized cardboard judge.







    The officials liked her so much, she spent all weekend at track exit.



    The overall winner:

    RX-7 gen 1 is probably the best car you could run in Lemons. Cheap to buy, simple to fix, and faster than most of the other heaps. Good luck!!!

    The fishing rod was a nice touch.

    I remember watching that Bass tail for many consecutive laps. Do you know your best lap time? Ours was 2:17.xxx I would think yours was close to that

    I think we cranked out a 2:16, but the results don't appear to be up on mylaps.com yet.

    Well, Oli asked for some details of the weekend, so here are my Cliff notes. We loaded the car in San Diego at 6:30 am on Friday morning and it was about 30 degrees outside. I strapped down the front of the car with the straps I always use but when I went to cinch the winch as a backup the winch battery was dead. My brother checked the straps and we figured we were good to go.

    I-5 was as always "under construction" with K-rail blocking the emergency lane for miles. I felt the trailer start to move around and when I looked back all I could see was the nose of the car sticking up. There was nowhere to pull off for at least 2 miles and when we finally found a place, here is what we found!

    Car was in gear (no emergency brake on it) and had "hopped" all the way back until the frame landed on the trailer. The back car tires were about 2 inches from the freeway. All this time not one person passing us attempted to get our attention. They were probably just trying to get out of the way! Luckily we had 4 people in the truck and were able to lift the car back on the trailer and resecure it.

    Compared to that, the rest of the weekend was pretty tame
