Get your tetanus shots and fire up the welders, hooptie fans. The 24 Hours of Lemons’ calendar for 2020 is out and you can register now for the 24 races on our schedule.
For the regulars, 24 Hours of Lemons schedule looks very similar to the 2019 calendar (see below). The biggest change sees Lemons’ first visit to Willow Springs Raceway for Yokohama Tire’s Big Willow Weekend. That is the first of six races sponsored by Lemons’ official tire, Yokohama Tire. They will also be at Carolina Motorsports Park, Thunderhill Raceway, Buttonwillow Raceway, MSR Houston, and Sonoma Raceway.
Last year’s additions at Heartland Motorsports Park, Pittsburgh International Race Complex, and Brainerd International Raceway all return for another go. The schedule also includes Lemons staples like Gingerman Raceway (Michigan), Road Atlanta, Barber Motorsports Park, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, High Plains Raceway, and more.
For the 24 Hours of Lemons, all cars must cost less than $500 for purchase and race preparation (not including safety equipment). Drivers need only a valid driver’s license to compete and the 24 Hours of Lemons racers’ experience runs the gamut from total novices to professional drivers.
This years marks Lemons’ 14th season after the first race at Altamont Speedway in California in 2006. Since then, the 24 Hours of Lemons has held more than 225 endurance races, begun road rallies (Lemons Rally), crapcan car shows (Concours d’Lemons), and opened to Southern Hemisphere version of the series in Australia and New Zealand. Those additional Lemons Rally and Concours d’Lemons dates will be released soon.
