The problem with the Tail of the Dragon and the surrounding byways isn't the road โ€” that's fantastic โ€” it's the constant slow tourist traffic. Wait, they shut it down for a hillclimb this year? Holy crap this is awesome.

You're watching Matt "Live Life Flat Out" Brandenburg in his Brakim Racing neon-green E36 M3 making a very sideways run on North Carolina's famous road. Well, a road right by the Tail, though not the actual stretch.

Remind me to go to the Chasing the Dragon event next year.
