If you are unfamiliar with Australian-style burnout contests, let us school you. There is an open pit of asphalt. There is a minute on the clock. And as long as you remain within the pit, it is open season. Get those RPMs up, get those tires spinning like there is no tomorrow, and get moving. Donuts, drifting, tip-ins...if you don't know these terms, learn them, because you will see them. If you're scared of a bit of shrieking, high-horsepower violence, then move on, because the crowds surrounding the burnout pit at Beech Bend Raceway will be roaring like the audience in the Roman Colosseum, ready to give their thumbs-up or thumbs-down.
Solomon Lunger told us he was going for broke in the burnout contest. He wasn't lying. In the middle of letting the Godzilla-powered Ford off of the chain, the right-rear tire exploded hard enough to send chunks of rubber nearly a hundred yards away. The damage looks severe, but if anybody is going to put this truck back together, Solomon will.
Hail to the chief, baby! Nothing says "power flex" like a Lincoln limo with a power adder swinging the tail around like the pendulum on a grandfather clock. Burnout MC Chad Reynolds even hopped in the back for the ultimate VIP experience!
