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/
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!
If you are staying overnight at the track, your team must click the camping toggle in the Car Info section of your online Event Overview page. This permits all registered members of your team to stay overnight at the track. Extras like RV hookups are handled by the track.
