What is this, you ask? It is endurance racing for $500 cars. It’s where Ford Pinto’s and Masaeratis battle to lap a Le Car. It’s where first-timers dice with Nomex-soiled racing amateurs. Wanna watch? Heaven forbid, wanna race?
NAAC Instructors are rising to the challenge again this year, as they tackle NHMS over two days in Loudon NH on May 5 & 6, and again on October 27 & 28.
Some come out and help, or sit in the stands and watch. You’ll probably see a hearse jockeying for position with a car that’s covered in fur and looks like a skunk. Drivers getting tarred and feathered for bad behavior, bad driving or bad hair. Teams using creative fixes to get their cars back out on the track after mechanical failures or complete engine meltdowns (guaranteed to happen to $500 junkers with 200,000+ miles on them). What you won’t see is a bunch of overpaid prima donnas who just turn left. Pit crews without a clue, Advertisements for male-enhancement pharmaceuticals, cars worth more than $500 (if they get caught!). Information on the 24 Hours of Lemons racing series and photos from past events can be found here.
