Showroom-Schlock Shootout Results

Team Resignation overcame several mechanical problems and a few black flags to finish 57th overall (out of 98 entries) at the 24 Hours of LeMons at Autobahn Country Club. TR driver Norbert threw down a 1:49.866 on Sunday, which made ours the 23rd fastest car around the circuit that weekend.

Expect some photos and more detailed day-by-day write-ups later this week.

Until then, we got picked up again in Judge Phil's coverage of the race.

Click here for a story in Norse (!) from last year that recently surfaced. Team Resignation has gone international!

Click here for several hundred photos from the race, including several of Team Resignation.

Team Resignation also would like to take this time to thank everyone who helped us in any way or just showed up at our paddock to BS or laugh at our futility. This includes (but is not limited to): Team Flaming Fiero (You guys are awesome pit neighbors and your car is mega-sweet), the #22 Saab team, Sean and Vic and the #8 Gray Poopon Civic, Phil and the #100 Swiss Racing E30, Greg and the #863 Skid Steer Bobcat (The chili dogs! My god, the chili dogs!!!), Keith and the #101 Byte Marks Escort, Ron and the #45 Smokey Saturn and the Bandit, Bob and Peter and Jonathan and the #4 Racing 4 Nickels Cutlass Ciera (Congrats on Index of Effluency!!!), the Charnal House MetSHrO, anybody who ate some of our massive food cache, Nine Lives Racing, Phil Rood and Phil Rood Illustration, Grassroots Motorsports (unofficially), Team Resignation Head Chef Amy Cesar, and probably 500 other people who we are unable to recall at the moment.

Team Resignation sends a very special thanks to Team Captain Emeritus Alan Cesar, who really founded the team in 2010 but was unable to make the race this year. We missed him and hope he'll make it for a race or three during the 2012 season.
