An Extreme Burnout Party Is the 'Murrican Way to Start a New Year

People attending car shows, and even those enjoying car movies at the cinema, are well aware of the unwritten rules of such episodes. Once the event is over and everybody tries to go home, there will be a group of drivers rushing to recreate what they had seen.

This is precisely what happened at the end of the Street Car Takeover Burnout Contest in St. Louis, which took place earlier this year. To be more precise, a number of drivers decided to create an impromptu burnout party once the official hooning was over.

Since many of these guys were the kind whose machines aren't exactly built for such stunts, they hadn't participated in the main event, which only caused the adrenaline to build up even further.

This also explains the presence of the workhorses in the footage below, which gives an excellent view of this 'Murrican happening.

Sure, there were also people driving machines that were just perfect for roasting their rear tires. But these people seem to have gotten tired of waiting for their turn, which convinced them to start an afterparty instead.

As you'll be able to see in the footage below, the organizers of the event didn't want to take away the rubber-melting freedom from these drivers. As a result, they allowed people to have their hooning way, only asking them to keep things in check as far as the area for pulling burnouts was concerned.

However, you can't pull a burnout show without mentioning the drivers Down Under. The 1320video crew who captured the footage obviously knows this, which is why they have a warning for us: "This video wasn't meant to impress Australians, simple to share some fun in a random parking lot with a massive group of friends & fans."

Those of you who are still unsure of Australia's domination in terms of burnouts should watch this clip, which shows 103 cars pulling a world record tire-shredding moment. Friends call this Summernats.
