Ford Probe Enters LeMons Race
The Ford Probe Race Team traveled to the Carolina Motorsport Park near Camden, South Carolina to participated in the 24 Hours LeMons “Lemons South Fall”, September 14-15. The ’94 Ford Probe ran in the Class C division and finished 29th out of 98. The team is made up of Ralph Stumpe, Bryan Hamilton and Frank Cavin. New to the team was Jeff Gilbert and John Mayfield. Both Jeff and John are experienced in driving on road courses in fast cars so the team was well prepared.
The 24 Hours of LeMons is restricted to cars that were purchased for a total of $500 or less. The 1994 Ford Probe was purchased in April 2014. Safety gear, helmets, racing seat, seat harness, tires, wheels, and pipe for the roll cage had to be purchased. A roll cage was fabricated and installed in the car. All the interior and the glass, except for the windshield, was removed and a cold air intake and an exhaust header was installed.
