The crowd. The spectacle. The pall of blue smoke and roasted clutch discs.

This weekend, the Carolina Motorsports Park will play host to the LeMons South Spring Race at the Westville facility.

The action starts again at 10 a.m. on Saturday and will end at 7 p.m.  Racing resumes 9 a.m. on Sunday and closes at 4 p.m. At 11:30 a.m., the car crushing of the People’s Curse Award winner will take place. Kart rentals will be available from 10:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. for $20 for a 10-minute ride each day.

Admission to Saturday and Sunday racing is $20 per day with a two-day ticket being sold for $30. Children under the age of 12 will be admitted to the races free of charge. Tickets are available at the race course both days.

Several teams from Kershaw County are expected to enter their cars into the race.

Each LeMons race is for cars purchased, fixed up, and track-prepped for a total of $500 or less. But before reaching the grid, drivers will have had to survive trials like the Personal-Injury-Lawyer Anti-Slalom, the Marxist-Valet Parking Challenge and the Wide Open Throttle Rodthrowapalooza.

Twelve hours into the race, the car voted People’s Choice is called in and awarded a cash prize; simultaneously, the car voted People’s Curse is called in and summarily destroyed.

For more information on this weekend’s race, please call the Carolina Motorsports Park at (803) 475-2448.
