Burnout contests are a hell of a lot of fun. Burning rubber, cars with monster torque, and the occasional explosion are the centerpieces of these raucous events. This classic ’49 Chevy Truck ratrod will put all the other burnouts you’ll ever see to shame when it gets going and you realize the driver has to wear a gas mask to pull this kind of stunt off because he kicks up enough smoke and burnt rubber to make all of the spectators choke a bit. He even keeps going until the tires burst from all the heat.
