Here's an excerpt:
Your reporter poses with his full-face helmet and fireproof gloves, wearing his fireproof suit, socks, long underwear, and shoes (I know--red; they were out of black, see, and I thought, "Okay-I will rock those red shoes"). I am about to take my first driving shift in the "24 Hours of LeMons," in Tooele, Utah. (Pronounced "Too-ill-uh.") The endurance racing series, punning on the famous 24-hour race in Le Mans, France, was conceived around 2006 by journalist Jay Lamm. His mission was to give low-budget enthusiasts an opportunity to race--safely and humorously.
