Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing is heading to Reno-

Petty Cash Racing is heading to Reno-Fernley Raceway this weekend to compete in another 24 Hours of LeMons race, this time a full, honest to goodness 24 hours straight through endurance race (the normal format is to have the race broken up over two days). If you're anywhere near the area come out and root us on! Dave Cole from HammerKing Productions (the dude who runs King of the Hammers) will not only be driving the Petty Cash Cherokee, but also providing his KOH race buggy for pace car duties. It should be quite the sight to see. Wish us luck!

Even if you can't make it in person, you can follow the team's exploits on our Facebook page:

Team Naxja? When was your sponsorship approved (or should I say rubberstamped)?

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing is heading to Reno-

Petty Cash had a great race at Reno, congrats to the guys. Wish I could have made this one! The team won the award for Index of Affluency, which sort of means the car that did the most with the least. The overall race winner gets $1500, and the Index winner gets $1501, so the guys had 1500 bucks to blow in Reno.

Back in Dec, we won C class at Buttonwillow, so at Sears Point last month they bumped us up a class to B class. The car ran really well at Reno this weekend, so well that the little Jeep XJ got the Index of Effluency prize because they did so much better than anyone whould have ever thought possible in a Jeep SUV on a road racing course. Really, it's pretty damn cool to win that award for running well rather than being the most unlikely car to be on the track and finish. In Buttonwillow the award went to a Fiat 800 that was so slow it was in everybodies way all weekend.....a very unlikely car to be out there.

Congrats to Matt and the Petty Cash crew who raced this weekend!! And congrats to and a fast XJ! Who'd a thunk it.

Re: Team NAXJA/Petty Cash Racing is heading to Reno-

So tired, so happy, so excited, so grateful. Hard to figure it all out at the moment. A couple pics until I get home and can deflate a little:







24 hours, 1225 miles, and a lot of embarrassed sports cars later:
