24 Hours of Lemons

The 24 Hours of Lemons has made a spectacle of dropping property values in South Carolina for an entire decade now. It has become annual tradition for the people of Camden, SC, to welcome dozens of hoopties into their downtown as part of Lemons South Fall race at Carolina Motorsports Park. The resulting Friday night “car show” and BS Inspection always remind them that they need to stop doing that. Yet, they always bring us back. And the race is always good, even when it’s delayed two months by a hurricane.

24 Hours of Lemons

This year, Lemons accumulated some fantastic stories. Those included a guest-driving NASCAR heartthrob, Judge Phil’s lackluster 10th-anniversary race, a 2JZ (No Comment), a ’51 Plymouth-ish, a hearse swap, and a special mention of the Triumph parts-trolls of northern England. Does any of that make sense? Probably not, but if you watch the YouTube recap video below, all will be revealed. Just kidding, this stuff still makes neither rhyme nor reason.

New here? Be sure to check out Lemons’ introduction section¬†and the Captain’s Tool Kit to see what it takes (not a whole damn lot) to go racing.
