Watch classic American muscle perform on the Maryland International Raceway Strip
If you like burnouts and the sounds of rumbling engines, then this video from the YouTube channel dreamgoainc is for you.
The nearly twelve-minute video features a wide variety of classic cars and trucks stopping at the starting line at Maryland International Circuit before screeching their tires, sending smoke towards the camera and driving off at full speed.
Watch the video for a quick adrenaline rush of some awesome vehicles.
Burnouts and fast runs at Maryland Raceway Strip
The video features many different vehicles throughout, but begins with a white Pontiac Trans Am idling for a while before doing a massive burnout and pulling away from the starting line before the screen cuts out to introduce the chain logo, it’s a great indication of what’s to come for this series of awesome cars.
In the background, a new Tesla model pulls away in the other lane, but the focus in the foreground of the video stays true to the theme of classic drag racing vehicles.
Several modified Chevy S-10 pickup trucks appear throughout the video, a non-traditional racing vehicle, but with the right upgrades can easily hold its own on the race track and drag strip.
Such an S-10, with big rear tires, a lowered stance and crisp gray paint, idles for a while before screeching its tires and aggressively pulling away, leaving a trail of smoke as it does.
While the size of modern compact pickups has increased significantly from what it was in the 80s and 90s, the compact and lightweight S-10 seems appropriate in this context.
Classic American muscle doing burnouts and fatigue smoke
Later, a 2-door Chevy Malibu pulls up at the start line and burns rubber before driving away; a Camaro follows immediately after.
With two lanes running at the same time, it’s a smoky scene on the Strip as a Ford Mustang fox body bulges out to flex its muscles after the string of Chevys smash through.
Racetrack workers diligently sweep and spray the strip after each car leaves, ensuring optimum exhaustion conditions for the multitude of vehicles that leave behind their noise and smoke.
Late in the video, another Trans Am appears, leaving a cloud of smoke to fill the frame of the video.
In a surprising twist, the final vehicle featured in the video is a Pontiac Grand Am coupe.
The mid-size car didn’t necessarily have a reputation for being fast, but this one clearly has the right modifications to make it suitable for the racetrack – the car has racing tyres, custom paintwork and looks like a legitimate competitor at the racetrack although the video cuts out before we can see the Pontiac doing a burnout or leaving the starting line.
