Park Bench Racing at 24 Hours of LeMons, October 2014, Part I



Here's part I of my Sunday stint at the 24 Hours of LeMons driving a Buick Regal we "borrowed" from grandma. It must have been terryfing for other drivers to see a PARK BENCH fly by on the inside of Turn 1 in the rain...

Park Bench Racing is at the 24 Hours of Lemons at NHMS This Weekend!

Park Bench Racing at the 24 Hours of Lemons race, NHMS, Friday practice, October 24, 2014

If you are looking for something to do this weekend besides apple picking and Halloween parties, come up to Loudon, NH and watch some wanna-be racers take on the road course at NHMS. You will be greeted with race cars that started out at less than $500, crazy car decorations, and drivers with a few screws loose (like their cars). Keep an eye out for our Park Bench Racing Team. The team will be driving a Buick Regal they 'borrowed' from grandma with a park bench on the back for a spoiler (it really does work). Come on by the pits and say Hi unless we are desperately trying to fix something (extremely likely), in which case grab a rag, tool or fire extinguisher and try to help us get 'er going again. Hope to see you there and thanks in advance.

Andy L., Team Captain

Friday recap:

The Park Bench Racing team has already rescued one Camaro/Firebird from burning down to the ground...


... did welding to help the Kentucky Chrome team pass inspection for which it was generously awarded with a case of beer...


... welded the racecar's exhaust back on, replaced two hubs, passed inspection, tested the car, and is ready to lay down some serious rubber at the race!

This Rally Crash Proves That Miracles DO Happen!!


Hat Tip to Omeed A.

It's just incredible that no spectator was hurt in this horrifying accident at Italy's Jolly Rally Valle d'Aosta. Driver Pietro Scavone and co-driver Diego D'Herin sustained minor injuries and one spectator was treated for shock, according to the La Repubblica newspaper. A miracle indeed!
