Richard Rawlings, the television show host, energy drink impresario, and restaurateur, has tried his hand at drag racing and failed in gloriously impressive fashion. While racing against NHRA Top Fuel ace Leah Pritchett, Mr. Rawlings skidded into the left side k-rail of the makeshift track on Woodward Avenue in…
There comes a time in every young car person’s life that they have to learn a few important life skills in order to be fulfilled, happy, and healthy. In this case I’m talking about the ability to clutch dump, rip a hydraulic handbrake, and properly steer through a donut. Or rather a series of donuts that lasts nearly…
“Have you ever blown up 3 tires in one day?” asks Eric Ruysch on YouTube. I can tell by his video of a 1987 Mercury Grand Marquis that he is the wise voice of experience on such matters, and we should watch his car destroy two more.
You can do a burnout with a 707-horsepower Hellcat-engined Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. You can! Believe! Also, hold the truck back with a meaty tow rope. But search for the one true spirit of four-wheel burnouts deep within your soul—you know it to be true! You can truly smoke all of those thick meats!
With the 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend, of course everyone has the new Ford GT on their minds—but let’s not forget the original revival of the Ford GT name. Holy crap, it is a glorious burnout machine and God bless the chill owner who was cool enough to enter it in a burnout contest. This burnout is delicious.
If you swap on new tires right at the end of a race, you should be required to burn off all the tread before you put the car away. Like this!
Austin Dillon wanted to celebrate his first-ever NASCAR Cup Series win after tonight’s Coke 600, but he won by stretching his fuel out over the race’s final laps. Sadly, fuel mileage gambles just don’t leave enough in the tank for a proper burnout. Behold: the happiest driver doing the saddest burnout.
Can you set cruise control during a burnout to make your car the ultimate burnout machine? YouTube hoon Cleetus McFarland had the same question, so he went to the home of Hoonigan in a rental van to find out.
Do you like utes? That’s an absurd question! Of course you like utes. Do you want to see a ute towing a ute that’s doing a burnout on the trailer? Yes! Duh! Why do I keep asking stupid questions?! Let me show you a good ute burnout.
Rally driver Andrew Comrie-Picard resurrected a 40 horsepower MG Midget that the Hoonigan crew considered “British scrap” after the car hadn’t run for 30 years. While the car still had some issues, like no clutch and a hood held down with a ratchet strap, the crusty little MG still rips a fat burnout.
Who needs a perfectly manicured front lawn when you have Oldsmobile’s finest full-size vehicle in shockingly good condition?
Slow-motion burnouts are wonderful in their own right, but sometimes choosing the right soundtrack can make amazing footage feel truly epic.
Look folks, Koenigsegg gets it. ‘It’ being our collective unspoken desire to see the new 1,500 horsepower Regera laying rubber and providing smoke cover.
If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good celebratory burnout. Joey Logano won the second NASCAR race of the weekend today after Kevin Harvick ran out of fuel in the lead. Logano clearly had the better fuel strategy, as he had enough left to pop a tire and start a fire doing burnouts after the checkered flag.
This is the way everyone should come into the world.
Truck yeah the ugly-ass SUV straight outta Turin can light 'em up!
Early signs seem to indicate that the next Need for Speed game will essentially be a spiritual continuation of the Burnout franchise, especially since it's being made by the Criterion dev studio that created those games. The hard-driving action in this new trailer—featuring a Corvette ZR1, Koenigsegg Agera R and…
Several times a year, bikers gather at the Suck Bang Blow bar just outside Myrtle Beach, S.C. to drink, schmooze, and hoon the crap out of their Harleys. But Horry County officials have had enough, and banned the club's periodic group burnouts after more than 15 years of celebratory Harley noise and tire smoke.
