Holley MoParty is full of beautiful things to see: the brightly colored car show fields on a sunny day, the heat of the autocross pad as drivers panic-stop before they run over a cone, the dragstrip as the sun starts to set at the far end of the strip. Throughout the day, the crowds ebb and flow as they experience all that the event has to offer. But on Saturday night, just about the time that sunset starts fading into the night time, the crowds make their way to the oval track at Beech Bend Raceway. The show cars have been paraded. The mullets have been seen. And the General Lee has hit the ramp and has returned back to earth, as Nature intended.
Now there's a new feeling in the air. Something a bit sinister. The engines sound meaner. The headlights cut through the darkness with intensity. The crowd builds. The Burnout Challenge is about to begin. This is where things get mean...engines are going to rev harder than they have all weekend long. Care and caution are going to go flying as the carefully vulcanized rubber gets spun into molten dust, leaving a cloud of smoke hanging in the air. This is where you will hear the LA scream, the Hemi roar, even the howl of an angry AMC inline-six. One minute stands between the start of the show and glory or failure for the contestants. One minute to put it all on the line.
