Driver Mark Konzelman of Medina Ohio is behind the wheel of this classic 71 Chevelle SS. Mark is putting on an exhibition of its power by doing a traditional smokey burnout.
The smokey burnout can be traced back the beginnings of drag racing. Drivers would do a burnout to heat up their tires, clean them off, and to lay down some rubber on the track for better traction. From hotrodders hanging out on Saturday night, to top fuel dragsters getting ready to run the quarter mile, to NASCAR drivers celebrating their victory in the winner’s circle, motor sports fans expect to see this awesome display of power: “The Smokey Burnout”.
