Lemon Racing?

Auto-racing is a new-found passion that returns me to my youth. I've taken it up late in life, and joined a racing team. We do "Lemons" races and essentially take cars that aren't fit to drive on a road and see if we can spend an entire weekend driving them around a track. My family jokes that I have a 'need for speed,' and I will admit, it's awfully fun.
