Houston Drivers Race Lemons For Cash and Glory

Posted: Updated:

Auto racing teams spend thousands of dollars creating the most high tech cars.  We found a group of normal guys in Houston doing some real racing without going into serious debt.  It's a race featuring cars that have been given a second chance.   

A few years ago Frank Thomas's high school car, a 1964 Dodge Dart, would barely start.  Now "Diane" has her very own racing number, a Space City theme and a team of guys who've spent hours turning her into a racing machine.  They drive the car in the endurance road series known as 24 Hours of Lemons.

"You have $500 to build a race car with the exception of safety equipment...It's the chance to race for the first time for people like us, and it's an easy way to go race," said Bob Griffin, one of the team members.
