This past weekend brought us the 2013 Mopar Nationals in Columbus. One of the key attractions at the Nationals each year is the burnout competition… As it is and should be at any big automotive event. What makes the burnout competition at the Mopar Nationals so unique is that it is usually comprised of a very broad selection of vehicles from classic muscle cars to diesel pickups to clunkers that have literally been taken out of a junk yard just to do burnouts. For this week’s Tire Shredding Tuesday feature, we look at a 1971 Dodge Charger in the world famous Mopar Nationals burnout competition this past Saturday.
I don’t know much about the car shy of the fact that it looked good from the stands (many of the vehicles are a bit on the beat up side as burnout competitions can be hard on the vehicle) and that it did one big, nasty burnout. Just to be clear, the drivers only have 30 seconds to create as much smoke as possible and while I missed hearing the announcement of who won – having seen most of the attempts I would guess that this guy could have been the winner. This Charger sounds as great as it looks while doing this monster burnout so make sure to crank up your speakers and enjoy!
