Rules and Entry Forms:
RACECAR LIFE puts you in the driver's seat of a "crapcan" racecar
in a real race with everything you need for 24 Hours of LeMons and ChumpCar races.
Nothing could be easier. Just arrive and drive in real endurance races!
We have a fleet of winning Mustangs ready for racing.
"There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games." - Ernest Hemingway
Race a high performance Ford Mustang. Race all weekend in a real endurance race! Our fleet of white 1989, 1996 and 2002 Mustangs are all ultra-light racers with 10 point rollcages, dual kill switches, 5 speed transmissions and big 5.0 V8 engines. They are all thoroughly track tested and available for racing. In addition to our fleet of Mustangs, we have a number of other "special interest" racecars available for rent:
This budget form of endurance road racing is sweeping all of North America. It is likely the fastest growing venue of motorsports in history. The originator was the 24 Hours of LeMons that started in 2007. ChumpCar started in 2009. Each offers 20 races across North America and has similar rules. A third race series, CrapCanAm, plans to announce it's schedule of 2010 races soon. Although the LeMons races exhibit a carnival atmosphere of unconventional penalties for minor infractions and Mardi Gras costumes for bonus points, the ChumpCar World Series is entirely serious about the exciting sport of motor racing.

Each race car starts out as a production street car. By the time the builder has stripped it down to the essential components and constructed a full rollcage, what the car lacks in expense is more than made up for in expertise and ingenuity. For those that have neither the time or skills to build one, RACECAR LIFE® provides a complete package including a competitive car with full trackside support for $5500. Entry fees are $500 per car and $100 per driver. So a driver's share of the total expenses on a 5 man team would be $1300. Rental helmet, firesuit and other race gear is $200. Nowhere else for so little money or effort can you experience this type of racing experience.
Races are on major tracks nationwide. We have race cars and crews available for every race. There is a race within a few hundred miles of every place in the United States. There is a major race almost every weekend of the year.
So are you really racing... or are you just playing games? Call (702) 617-3300 now to schedule your race weekend. With a 5 man team your total cost including race car rental, crew, support, entry fees and racegear rental comes out to only $1500 per man for the entire weekend!
The 24 Hours of LeMons specifies a minimum of 4 drivers and a maximum of 6 drivers. ChumpCar has no maximum.
Driving time varies from race to race up to as long as 24 hours typically from noon on Saturday until noon on Sunday.
Entry fees for ChumpCar and LeMons are $500 per car and $100 per driver.
Check with the race organizers for any price changes or other miscellaneous fees.
Race organizers also usually charge $50 per year for a competition license, and ChumpCar charges first-timers $25 for
classroom instruction. If your car does not come with a transponder, you can rent one at registration for $50.
Race organizers will often accept late entries after the posted deadline. ChumpCar guarantees to accept the first 50 entries,
so reserve a racecar and enter early.
