Santa Cruz CA—Going fast is easy. Making a Toyota into a space shuttle or changing an engine while dressed as a chicken is hard. That’s why for ’22 forward, Lemons is adding a Halloween Meets Gasoline Prize to each race: A trophy + $1000 cash for the team rocking the most excellent theme / costumes / car build all weekend.
The Halloween Meets Gasoline Prize works just like it sounds: Be creative, have fun, make Lemons laugh, and you’re entered. The crapcan-endurance series’ (not very) genius staff of (not terribly) sober judges and (not all that organized) organizers will (in no way scientifically) pick a winner each race, then hand over a G and a trophy at the award ceremony.
Insider tip: Wearing that chicken suit to the award ceremony helps. And the drivers meeting. And the track bathrooms. The motel breakfast buffet wouldn’t hurt either, but that’s up to you.
