Smoky NASCAR, NHRA burnouts are mere wisps compared to this video


NASCAR fans love when their favorite driver performs a celebratory burnout after winning a race, while NHRA fans love to watch burnouts prior to a run down the drag strip.

The smokier the burnout, the better.

But NASCAR and NHRA drivers have nothing on what goes on at the Australian Summer Nationals.

To ring in the New Year, 103 cars got together this past Thursday at Exhibition Park in Canberra, Australia, for the 28th edition of what most locals down under call simply the “SummerNats.”

The cars had one goal to kick off the four-day annual celebration of Aussie horsepower: to set a Guinness World Record for smokiest and biggest burnout ever seen on a racetrack.

They not only accomplished that goal, they did it with a flourish that would make any NASCAR driver eat his or her heart out in envy.

And as for NASCAR and NHRA fans, if you love burnouts, well … as Bachman Turner Overdrive would say, you ain’t seen nothing yet … until you’ve seen this video.

Thanks to our friends at for tipping us off to this great video.
