This is Dave’s newest passion in life.
The 24 hours of LeMons, a play on the real French race of the 24 hours of LeMans, is basically a form of endurance racing which involves getting a team of 5 people together (hopefully one of whom knows an awful lot about car mechanics), purchasing a vehicle of your choice AND fixing it up for no more than $500, and then racing for 2 days. I believe that you’re lucky to keep your car in running order and have it cross the finish line, let alone collect the $1,500 top prize.
This sport is obviously not about the financial upside potential, but more about the glory of being the fastest redneck.
I recently received a long awaited raise at work which amounts to almost exactly $500 extra in the monthly budget. Dave sees this as a clear sign that God approves of his racing endeavors.
