Please join us at the Altamont Motorsports Park in Tracy California on October 20 and/or 21 for a day or two of racing mayhem. Approximately 70 cars costing less than $500.00 each will take to the course on Saturday at 2:30 PM for a two day endurance race, demonstrating a complete disregard for the decorum constraining most motorsports events.
Fans will be hurling lemons and sledge hammers at the race cars. Officials, on a whim, weld appendages on the car, signifying their sentiments of the entry (pigs, chickens and wheels on the roof are typical). Even the winner of the race receives the purse in nickels; at one of the previous races thrown at the competitor smashing their windshield. None of the competitors are exempt from the hassle, humiliation and disgrace imposed by the sanctioning (?) organization and fans.
And it's all for good fun and for a few, like the Edge Motorworks team, the “Lanterns”, it's also about helping others. 100% of the donations made to “Lanterns of LeMons”, our race focus, will support childhood cancer research directly.
