No pictures, sorry. But I finally finished pulling apart our Ford 200 six motor from the Billy Beer Racing Futura we raced at Buttonwillow last year. Quick recap, our first race we ran pretty good, but slow all day Saturday, Sunday we started smoking and gradually lost power until a few hours until the end […]
24 Hours of Lemons

Okay, its been a while, but now I’m back. There was a 24 Hours or Lemons race (we did okay), a trip to Europe, Christmas and New Years. I’ve been busy with all those things plus hunting for a motor for the Lemons car (200 Ford six, email me if you have one) and putting […]

So sorry for the break in the action while this was happening
…Because 2 weeks from now the racing will be all over for us, whether we win, lose or break. There are still a few issues, but no time left to fix them because I’m going out of town for Thanksgiving. Guess we just drive around the problems. Wish us luck. The 24 Hours of Lemons […]
