One of favorite events during Corvettes at Carlisle is the annual burnout contest. The 2016 edition featured four contestants who put the pedal to the pavement to see who could generate the fan’s favorite burnout. Some real fireworks took place during the contest as well. As smokey says, where there’s smoke, there’s fire!
Just prior to the start of the contest, we found the first two contestants in the staging lane and hit them up for a quick preview. Both guys were fairly new visitors to Corvettes at Carlisle and but both knew how to light’em up and get those tires smoking.
The weapon of choice for this year’s burnout show was the C5 Corvette as all four contestants pulled into the bullring with their 5th gen cars. Including this cutie:
We say there was four contestants but the real number was three as Lance Miller’s daughter Ella Corvette put on an exhibition with her Kerbeck-livery C5 Corvette go-cart to start the show. She really showed the big boys how it was done!
Once she cleared the area, the real contest started. After each burnout, the fans showed their appreciation and voted for the winner with much applause! So without further ado, enjoy the 2016 Corvettes at Carlisle burnout contest:
