A unique car race is taking place at Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows this weekend.
That's because all the cars are junkers!
Unlike the "24 Hours of Le Mans" in France, cars in this race, the "24 Hours of LeMons," cannot be worth more than $500.
If an automobile is deemed to be worth more than $500, penalties will be handed out by event organizers.
Participants are urged to prepare their "lemons" with a certain theme. It's like a carnival for cars.
Most events are fourteen hours long, with sessions on Saturday and Sunday running from six to ten hours long.
The "lemon" completing the most laps over the weekend wins hundreds of dollars in nickels.
Thunderhill has hosted this annual race for eight consecutive years.
