24 Hours of Lemons: NHMS Wrap-Up – we won class C and then "complained" about it

We didn’t complain, as Jay mentions in this video. I emailed Jay and asked if Lemons would be doing anything about the fact that a once competitive class B car can now hardly finish mid-pack of class B. I also asked if minimum pit-stop amount requirement could be a good idea. Speedcreep, as someone called it, is obviously real.
Jay said to get a better car. Fine. Whatever.

    Hey, in one wrapup video Jay called my International Harvester a Jeep but you don’t hear me complaining about it. Well, except now. And that other time. And when I next saw Jay after the video and gave him an IH plaque as a reminder. But other than that I’ve just let the error pass in silence, because that’s the kind of person I am.

    You already have a better car. The Lada has a cage.

      It’s faster than the Buick stock as well.

    For the benefit of current or future Lemons racers who for whatever reason are not on Jay Lamm’s mailing list, the new rules for 2018 were just released. The only changes are (1) a phase-out of bolt-in cages and (2) a phase-in of onboard fire suppression systems. Neither change comes fully into effect until after the 2018 season (which is to say, a full year’s warning at this point), although of potentially more immediate effect for some is that anyone with a currently permitted bolt-in cage is only allowed one more race with it (which must occur during 2018) and this permission to run such a cage one more time is not transferable to a new owner.

      The updated rules have themselves been updated to remove all language about one more race and/or no transfers of ownership for bolt-in cages. Now bolt-in cages will simply no longer be permitted after the 2018 season:
