For Krider Racing, the 2012 running of the 25 Hours of Thunderhill started with rum and ended with rum. It took a fair amount of rum to garner the courage to take on such a monumental task like “The 25.” This is the story of how a group of friends came together to compete with factory backed professional race teams in the longest road race in North America, while campaigning a $500 car that was originally built for the 24 Hours of LeMons, and somehow walked away victorious. This is the Krider Racing 25 Hours of Thunderhill “Rum Diary.”

Bring Your Own Big Wheel (most commonly referred to as BYOBW) is a crazy annual event held on Easter Sunday in San Francisco where hundreds of participants dress up in costumes and ride a child’s toy down a wicked steep and crooked road. Epic crashes, hilarity and some pretty cool racing ensues. Video below the jump.

$500 crap-cans take on one of the world’s most prestigious race tracks, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, during the ChumpCar 7.5 hour enduro. We took the Krider Racing 1991 Nissan Sentra SE-R and picked up a podium finish after seven hours of dualing it out on the "corkscrew." Hit the jump to check out the post-race compilation video we put together!

NASCAR has Daytona, endurance racers have Le Mans, crap-can racers have ChumpCar, and kids who race soap box have the All-American Soap Box Derby World Championships in Akron, Ohio. For a kid involved in gravity racing there is no bigger achievement than the three lane "show" at Derby Downs. This year Krider Racing went to the big race to check it out.

You are seeing the image correctly. That is a Plymouth Voyager road racing! The van, run hard by “The Soccer Moms” race team, traveled from Oregon down to Buttonwillow Raceway in Southern California to run in the 14-hour “Summer Sunset” ChumpCar endurance race. The van did quite well getting the kids to practice and put down some pretty fast laps. Hit the jump below to see how it faired overall in the ChumpCar race. Photo by VanHap Photography.

There is nothing quite like a good old fashioned crash-up derby. The crunching metal, the smell of burning rubber, the gritty survival of the fittest (or in most cases the biggest: you may want to bring a Chrysler). This "greatest hits" video from the guys at Krider Racing shows the build-up of a demo derby car (a Chrysler Cordoba with Corinthian leather), its heat at the California State Demo Derby Championships, and ultimately the car's inevitable destruction. Hit the jump to watch.

Krider Racing, a team that drove its way to success in crap-can racing with both the 24 Hours of LeMons and ChumpCar $500 racecar events, graduated to National Auto Sport Association (NASA) races and competed in the Western Endurance Racing Championship (WERC). The team applied their tried-and-true formula from racing beaters and went on to earn the 2010 E3 Championship title in the WERC series. Cameras followed the team to NASA’s headline-year-ending event, the 25 Hours of Thunderhill. With narration by “RacerBoy” Rob Krider and production from GoRacingTV.com this gritty documentary came to life about what it was like to “Survive the 25.” Check it out after the jump!

Why should you bother to try to become a blogger on this new fangled Autoholics? I know, I know, putting capitals at the beginning of a sentence and a period at the end of one is hard. Taking photographs that don’t have your finger in front of the lens isn’t easy either. Believe me, automotive blogging isn’t easy, if it was it would be called Sport Compact Car magazine –oh, wait, that magazine doesn’t exist anymore, sorry! Anyway, let’s get back to the point here. Blogging about cars can be a lot of fun. You get to go to races, drive new cars and hang out with models in the wheels section of SEMA. Don’t think those are good reasons. Well check out this link to see 10 reasons while blogging about cars can be fun: The Top 10 Things Accomplished While Blogging For Jalopnik.
