Many Americans go out of their way to insult the French. At the same time, they are insanely jealous of the race the 24 Hours of LeMans. Here's a bunch of 'race' car drivers who have taken the insult to the track. The 24 Hours of LeMons! 

Each LeMons race is for cars that were purchased for and track prepped for $500 or less. Before the race, drivers must survive the Personal Injury Lawyer Anti Slalom, the Marxist Valet Parking Challenge and the Wide Open Throttle-palooza.

Half way thru the race, the people's choice car gets a cash price, while the people curse car gets destroyed.
