24 Hours of Detroit: The Longest Shortest Day

This is a go-kart race that happens through and around my once-abandoned car factory in Detroit.

It's called The Longest Shortest Day because we're holding it on the shortest day of the year.

The race begins on December 21st, 2022 at 12:00PM and runs non-stop until December 22nd, 2022 at 12:00PM.The team that completes the most laps in 24 hours wins $1,000 cash and eternal glory.

This will be a once-in-a-lifetime kind of an event.
There will be surprises.
