You should try to copy most of what we post here on DodgeForum at home but this week’s Tire Shredding Tuesday feature video shows a 1972 Dodge Demon doing something that we really wouldn’t recommend trying at home – literally at home.
This video is called Nick Raschke 1972 Dodge Demon at 3rd Annual Raschke Burnout Contest which would lead me to believe that it is some sort of event which includes a burnout contest. In reality, this appears to be some good old fashioned redneckery in someone’s driveway and if I had to guess, I would presume that alcohol is probably involved at some point. As you can see in the video below, the green Demon is in a narrow driveway, backed up to the front of a garage covered by what looks to be a painter’s tarp. One of the fellas assisting appears to dump some bleach in front of each wheel before taking his position at the rear quarter panel to prevent the car from kicking to the side as the burnout starts…which is something else that we wouldn’t recommend trying at home.
Everything else aside, when this 383 big block-powered Dodge Demon starts smoking the tires, it does one hell of a great burnout. Smoke pours off of the tires for a good 30 seconds before the driver lets the car roll forward at which point we see a line of safety cones give this at-home burnout competition a very official look. It can’t be unsafe when you have cones, right? Right.
In any case, Nick Raschke’s 1972 Dodge Demon is one awesome sounding Mopar muscle car that shreds a set of tires like few cars can or like few owners will…and that makes this big block Demon a deserving feature vehicle for Tire Shredding Tuesdays. Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
