The 2011 Goin’ For Broken 24 Hours of LeMons, which takes place in Nevada’s Reno-Fernley Raceway, is a true 24-hour event. The green flag waved at 10:00 AM this morning, and we’re just about halfway done now. RFR features thin air, crazy elevation changes, off-camber turns, and (starting a couple hours back) pitch darkness. The racers love it, but it kills their cars.

The race leader at the moment is the Model T GT, but the T just nuked its transmission a few minutes back and appears to be headed to DNF-land.

That means the lead will soon pass to the two-time race-winning POSRacing “Spin-N-Out Burger” E30. This team has two rookie drivers and isn’t running their usual absurdly quick lap times, but (unlike the other top contenders) they’ve remained absolutely black-flag-free.

My internet connection here is a super-flaky tethered-cell-phone setup, so I may not be able to post regular updates. If nothing else, LeMons fans will get a winner post after the checkered flag drops. Check in later!
