Burnouts are an awesome, and expensive way to waste tires. Of course, the competitors in burnout contests know this, but none would expect what happens in this video.

At the 4th annual NMRA/NMCA All Star Nationals in Commerce, Ga., last month, one competitor was performing an admirable burnout, until his tire caught fire. Luckily the flames were isolated to the tire and it didn’t look like they spread and damaged the rest of the Mustang.

So there you go, where there’s smoke, even if its from tires, there’s fire.
