Aaron Cole Judge LeMons

In honor of Miller Motorsports Park’s glorious sale back to the people, fellow auto scribe and LeMons chief judge Murilee Martin, Cheat Sheet Managing Editor Andrew Ganz and I made the people’s journey Thursday across the wasteland wonderful state of Wyoming to judge the proletariat’s race. (I’ll have a story on that later.)

The annual Return of the LeMonites will have a decidedly “red” feel this year, thanks to Murilee’s savvy Alibaba skills and dirt-cheap shipping costs from China.

This isn’t my first rodeo as LeMons judge — but it is my first tour for the best race series on the planet back in the Beehive State. I went to school at the University of Utah (AP No. 10, Coaches No. 12, ESPN No. 9) and Utah is my second home for many reasons. Basically, I’m saying I’m comfortable enough here to make terrible drivers go get me Beto’s if they drive like assholes. 

I’ll be on Twitter all weekend (@ColeMeetsCars) if you want to keep up with the days’ activities and cars. Included in the list of racers in Utah are a twin-engined Toyota MR2, a mid-engined LeCar, a miniature Renault 4CV and probably a Pinto or two.

If you’re in the neighborhood, please stop by. Look for the proletariat chariot in the parking lot.

If you’re racing this weekend, bribe early and bribe often; Raunch Records and Epic beer go a long way to help me forget that you’ve just blown Attitudes.
