Lemons Weekend

This weekend was spent at Thunderhill racetrack in Willows for a Lemons race. For those of you who don't know what Lemons is, it's a race for cars that are worth $500 and are rebuilt so that they're able to run on the track. You can do whatever you want to the cars but I think there's a limit to how much you can spend and what you can do to it. Last year, the theme they chose was the Porcubimmer and this year the car was based on Stephen King's Christine which they named Prickstine.

They even had matching t-shirts!

The race was really fun to watch with the variety of themes the different teams came up with. Most noteable was the Tiger Woods car in which the team dressed up as women and would say crazy things like "I love you! I hate you" and bang on their car with hatred and golfclubs.

Prickstine's pit crew and racers showed great teamwork, friendship & sportsmanship. In fact, the entire race had a feeling of that. At the end of the race, one of the teams drove around in their car passing out some kind of coffee liquor which actually tasted pretty good.

I wanted to make something special for the Prickstine crew so I made them spam musubi & jap chae. I was kinda disappointed that the rice for the spam musubi hardened up but people still seemed to enjoy it. I had to cook the jap chae twice since the noodles were too hard in the morning but it turned out OK.

All in all, it was a good time :) Congrats to the Prickstine girl & guys for placing in 6th place!
