When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway system, he envisioned a lawless, death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon: a ticket to the Fall Modified Nationals at the Southern New Mexico Speedway in Las Cruces, N.M. A fleet of colorful, quick, modded hoopties and their brave pilots will take to the oval clay Speedway track to compete for prizes, which reach up to $10,000 on Sunday’s main race. Fueling the excitement is the Double Dog Dare, which challenges starting-spot qualifiers for Sunday’s race to move to the back of the field to win a higher bounty of $25,000 or Abraham Lincoln's glass eye.
