Cars take part in huge American burnout after-party

Updated: 

Muscle car drivers in St Louis staged an unconventional party following the end of the Street Car Takeover Burnout Contest – destroying their rear tyres in front of hundreds of spectators.

The Street Car Takeover Burnout Contest is a celebration of all things smoky – however many 'standard' cars weren't allowed to participate in the event. This after-party was therefore the ideal chance for people who brought their own cars to show off what they can really do.

The organisers of the original event allowed the party to commence, asking only that drivers were conscious of the spectators on either side of the road.

At one point, spectators helped to hold on to the rear of a pickup truck, allowing it to spin the rear wheels and create a cloud of smoke. From trucks to saloons, there were a huge variety of cars partaking in this unique and smoky event.
