About this race event

This is the BIG one! The continuous (non-stop) 24 hour NaZCAR Lemons endurance event tests the mettle of crappy cars, and the resolve of the drivers + crew. Strategy, preparation and sheer perseverance are the order of the day (and night), with themed teams of 5 (or more) drivers plus Crew members desperately trying to keep their clunkers running, maybe... You know what they say... "Endurance Racers can go all Night"!

Last year SOLD OUT so get in quick to book your spot!!
