What a great idea!

http://www.chumpcar.com/

Intro:
Quote
Your team has been driving hard for 18 hours. The sun is just coming up, throwing a blinding glare across your oil-streaked windshield. Every bolt in your $500 crap-can race car is rattling… and so is your brain when you realize that you’ve still got another 6 hours left in the race.

Basic rules:
Quote
    * Not including the required safety equipment, your car must be valued at less than $500… not what you paid for it.
    * Safety gear includes roll-cage, harness, fire bottle and other important stuff… plus helmet and driver's gear.
    * Wheels and brakes are subject to the "2X" rule: that is, if the OEM cost of any part is "X," then you can spend "2X" on wheels and brakes. Just wheels and brakes… not springs and shocks.
    * Tires are up to you… as long as they’re DOT legal and rated at 190 or higher for treadwear.
    * ChumpCar has two (2) race formats: 24-hour endurance races or Double 7-hour Enduros. Your entry fee covers both Enduros and these are separate races, with separate winners.
    * Want to make sure that you get in the race? First 50 entries are guaranteed. ChumpCar limits the number of cars on the track, so – to be safe – get it entered and get it paid!
    * If you cheat or screw-up or both… you'll be docked laps. We may also get creative with the penalties, but we know that sitting around while your team stares at YOU, and other cars are still racing… well, that’s enough torment and anguish.

Sounds like a similar concept to the 24 hours of lemons that the autoblog.com guys run or at least promote heavily
