All-STAR burnout Competition!
These are the type of events that I get excited for. NASCAR is going to introduce a new competition on May 17th where five allstars attempt to do two doughnuts and then enter into Victory lane. The fastest time gets $10,000 and is the official BURNOUT KING. NASCAR in itself is a very exciting sport but when you ad little things like this… it just makes my ears tingle. Stuff like this will only make NASCAR victories more fun to watch because you know it’s going to be a show at the end.
The funniest part about this whole new addition is when they asked Clint Boyer to test out the idea in front of the staff and media, let’s just say he didn’t do it flawlessly. They let Boyer demonstrate the burnouts with a Richard Petty Driving Experience car and after the first two successful burnouts he then attempted to drive the car back into pit row and he kissed the wall. Haha… Clint Boyer kissed the wall driving the borrowed car back into pit row.
Here’s Clint’s response, “It was Practice man. That’s what you’re here for – to see what to do and what not to do”
Let’s just hope this was a lesson on “what not to do.”
After I heard about this new competition I wanted to see how tough it would be to complete two doughnuts and then slide it into my driveway. I ended up doing about a dougnut and a half before I almost flipped my car… then I decided it may not be such a good idea trying to slide it into my driveway. I never claimed to be the sharpest tool in the shed but I’m obviously not the dullest tool in the shed either. Here’s a picture of my attempt… and YES my neighbors think i’m crazy.
