Sep 26-Sep 27, 2020 | Buttonwillow Raceway Park, Buttonwillow CA

Button Turrible, Bafflingly Presented by Yokohama

Entry Deadline: August 01, 2020

Schedule

IMPORTANT: DUE TO COVID, SPECTATORS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT THIS RACE! ONLY PRE-REGISTERED DRIVERS & CREW CAN ATTEND--FOR MORE ON COVID CHANGES, GO HERE: https://24hoursoflemons.com/covid/

REGISTRATION
During Covid, walk-up spectators, late registration, and late substitutions are not permitted. Everyone through the gate--drivers, crew, family, friends, kids, whatever--must be pre-registered as drivers or crew before the online reg database closes (10 days before the race). Pre-registered crew members are $75; we realize that's steep for kids, but this helps us limit bodies onsite to essential team members and streamline the check-in process. We hope to be back to normal soon!

BUTTONWILLOW GATE FEE
Buttonwillow is separately charging $10 to everyone through the gate, even though you're preregistered as a Lemons participant. That's their deal, sorry.
