We feel that this is better than the judicial leniency they were hoping to get, of course, and all right-thinking racers (who [...]

Spray-painting a stenciled image on the car of a team whose members give generously to the 24 Hours of LeMons Supreme Court has been a tradition since the first South Carolina LeMons race in 2008.
