Gearing Up To Grind Gears!

They're in... After a year out of competition, Hammer's Heroes are back in the mix at the 24 Hours of Lemons, the endurance race for $500 cars.

A new cast of characters are making the team this time around:

  • The Heroes are still led by team principal John "Hammer" Palazzolo. "I've said it before, Lemons is the most fun I've ever had in a racecar. To have these guys join me at the track is going to be huge fun!"
  • The rest of the team includes Wayne Shaver who worked with Hammer at both Xtreme Measures (a teen driving school) and Chrysler's SRT Track Experience.
  • Zack Skolnik is an up & coming shoe who's spending his summer in New Jersey under the wing of Ferrari North America.
  • The novice member of the team is an old friend & crew member for Eddie Sharp Racing's ARCA stock car team; Todd Chapman. Todd has never raced anything in his life...this is his first opportunity to pull on fireproof skivvies & live his dreams.
And that's what Hammer's Heroes are all about; living the dream. Want to be part of the Heroes? Drop a line to Race weekend is September 24-26 at Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, SC. See you there!
