For most of the ’11 Goin’ For Broken race, the battle for the overall win seemed to be all about the Spin-N-Out Burger E30 and the Model T GT… but a lot can happen over the course of 24 nonstop hours of road racing. We had snow, gusty winds, dust storms, wild horses, and— eventually— a whirlwind of mechanical problems and black flags that knocked out the top two contenders. You don’t dare make any mistakes when you’ve got the winningest car in LeMons history looming in your rear-view, and Eyesore Racing’s ghettocharged Miata made its move at oh-dark-thirty this morning.

During a drinking bout with Judge Jonny a couple weeks back, several members of 2010 season champs Eyesore Racing indicated that they’d be re-theming their Miata with a full-on Manson Family decorative scheme. “If you don’t paint the car in full Helter Skelter mode,” we warned them, “you’ll be getting 100 penalty laps!” Thinking we hadn’t been serious about the Manson Family thing, Eyesore showed up at Reno-Fernley Raceway with their old Charlie Sheen theme from their last race. Big mistake! Facing those 100 laps, the team bought paint at Wal-Mart and spent the night painting revolutionary slogans and White Album lyrics on their car. I still gave them a few BS laps on general principle, but not enough to keep them from beating the Spin-N-Out BMW by 3 laps. Congratulations on your fourth LeMons victory, Eyesore Racing!
