About “NIGHT RIDER”

This is my first car. I have drifted thousands of miles in this car i have gotten tons of tickets in this car even won some races but manly just drifting, but one thing i can say is it is awesome to drive Pontiac's it creates excitement.

About “Lemon”

We purchased this car in the fall of 2010 to race in the 24 Hours of Lemons and Chump Car World Series. We ran our first CCWS race at the beginning of May 2011 at the Iowa Speedway. The car made it 10 hours into the race before a fire knocked us from the race.

The fire, the second fire after a fire at a track day to shake the car down at Waterford Hills, won us the Dramatic Irony award due to our jokes about having been on fire written on the car, which is painted with chalk board paint. The keys being hot rod style flames drawn on the doors and
HELP I'M ON FIRE
SAVE ME TOM CRUISE
written out on the back of the spoiler.

With a new fuel cell in the car we finished third in the 24 Hours of Lemons race at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, MI in July 2011.

The car also ran in the Longer Longest Day CCWS race at Nelson Ledges in October 2011. It was running at the finish, although it was only on track for 13.5 laps due to some off course excursions requiring an hour of repairs and some electrical gremlins causing some diagnosis time to solve why the car was running poorly, discovering poorly was equal to running on 3 cylinders.
