In April, Lemons made its 22nd appearance at CMP, which more or less renders it the series’ home away from home.

24 Hours of Lemons Chicago 2018: The Winners and More!

24 Hours of Lemons Sears Pointless at HooptieCon: The Winners

The 24 Hours of Lemons series has been holding a springtime Sears Pointless race at Sonoma Raceway every year since 2010, and this year we added two things: the overwhelmingly entertaining HooptieCon and a puzzling sponsorship by Yokohama Tires.
