Focke Ewe Racing and 24 Hours of Lemons Present:

Focke Ewe II: The Resurrection
At The Lamest Day 2009
(Nelson Ledges/Detroit)

Bhaaaaaaaaaah! Like any great sequel, this story begins with our intrepid warriors- well, drivers- barely surviving a brutal adventure at the Toledo Motor Speedway last September. Survive they did and even though they were battered and beaten (actually, that was their race car) they are much wiser for the experience. They looked over the battered hulk of their car and decided, “We can rebuild it --- We have the technology." Thus they got out the fire wrench, hammers and duct tape and resurrected it- stronger, faster and more reliable than ever- sorta. Focke Ewe racing is back, and ready for more adventures on the Lamest Day.

Each LeMons race is for cars purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of 500 dollars or less. But before reaching the grid, you'll have to survive trials like the Personal-Injury-Lawyer Anti-Slalom, the Marxist-Valet Parking Challenge, and the Wide Open Throttle Rodthrowapalooza. Twelve hours into the race, the car voted People’s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted People’s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed. At the end of 24 hours, a gala awards ceremony plies the survivors with trophies, plaques, and four-figure purses in canvas bags full of nickels. What's not to like?
