Think You Can’t Do A Burnout With A Set of Tracks? Think Again!

burnout 1These days it seems like everyone has either done a burnout, seen a burnout or participated in a burnout contest. Well, that’s all fun in good but it gets to a point where it starts to feel like “seen one seen them all.”

That’s not the case here. We recently came across this video of the Mattracks F350 participating in a full on burnout contest but not with tires with TRACKS!!! That’s right we said tracks. Now, we know what you are thinking, there are a ton of “track” tire videos out there. And in your thinking you would be correct. We’re guessing because when you spend that amount of money on a set of track tires you want any and everyone to know and know what you are doing with them.

In this video, the driver get’s into the water box and starts to light up the tracks in the standard burnout process. However, as the burnout continues more and more smoke pours out until it completely engulfs the truck and the crowd. If you watch the background you actually see some of the spectators start to move back and away as the smoke pours and pours out.

Best part is, at one point you hear someone say well that will mean a new set of tracks. Just then on the screen a little caption pops up saying that he won’t even need a new set of tracks. What do you think? Would you burnout in your tracks?
