You may guess this team has an impressive collection of exploded parts. You would be correct. Still, an automatic, proletarian-trim Civic is not a particularly adept road racer.
May win Class C yet. Not going to win a race, but could finish Top This car is the epitome of LeMons and somehow won Class B once. Possibly the LeMons Car of the Future? White Trash Racing Dodge Neon — The team that makes this writer laugh as much or more than any other.
Smokey Saturn and the Bandits Saturn SL2 — This car seemed on the brink of quitting a year ago after some incredibly heartbreaking bad luck. Must be the plaster-cast air intake. This one with all kinds of cheater parts has been maybe the worst of all them.

The first casualty of the race was the Flying Purple People Eater S10, whose distributor busted the second the driver floored the car for the green flag.
