THE Burnout Masters at Street Machine Summernats is the grand final of burnouts, and just making the field is a big deal to those in the skid scene.
Just how big a deal it is became plainly obvious to the thousands of punters who gathered to watch the Last Chance Wildcard Burnouts at Summernats 32.
A hand-picked assortment of competitors was granted a final opportunity to make the cut for the Masters and they pulled out all the stops, with many of them ending up with less-than-stellar skids as a result.
Mechanical failures, fires, brushes with the wall and stop-start performances plagued the field, but a handful of skidders put on a hell of a show, earning themselves a Masters berth in the process.
Marc Waddington in the Rod Shop WARBIRD Falcon, Jay Chun Tie’s epic Suzuki Carry TINYTOW, Matt Lunney’s FLIRT Commodore, Danny Smith’s SOLID Chevy C10, and Karl Haining’s FATLX Torana were the picks of the bunch, enjoying trouble-free runs despite the hot conditions and emerging out the other end with vehicles intact and golden ticket in hand.
The stage is now set for the biggest skid comp on the planet this Sunday. If you can’t get your backside trackside, stay glued to Street Machine’s social channels and we’ll bring you all the action.
