Oct 17-Oct 18, 2020 | New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Loudon NH

Halloween Hooptiefest

Entry Deadline: October 03, 2020

Schedule

IMPORTANT: DUE TO COVID, WALK-UP 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 (12 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!

OPTIONAL GARAGE RENTALS
Lemons will send an email announcement for the garage rentals to all registered team members after the payment deadline. To be eligible to reserve a garage, your team fees must be paid. Otherwise, just hang tight for the email announcement. PLEASE DO NOT BUG US ABOUT GARAGES BEFORE THE ANNOUNCEMENT!
