Here was a fun video to watch from C8 Corvette YouTuber RearWheelDrive who took the checkered flag at Cleetus McFarland’s Spectator Drags at the Freedom Factory race track in Bradenton, Florida.
The race had 60+ competitors entered who brought all sorts of vehicles to the track. Once the cars were lined up, they were paired up with the car either in front of them or behind them, and the two would race a single lap around the track in a single-elimination format. Despite more powerful cars being entered, the standing start and the track’s tight oval played right into the strengths of the mid-engine C8 Corvette
Once Matt makes it to the final founds, the rules are changed to a best of three format, and the only car left standing in the way of the 2020 Corvette’s glory is a Sebring Orange 775-hp Corvette ZR1.
