  1. Reubens,

    Thanks for the comment – I agree the evidence of burnouts, doughnuts etc.. is a lot more spectacular. But these tire marks are evidence of a different kind. Especially during qualification, the drivers kept pushing the limits of the the track, coming closer and closer to the wall. Their precision could be quite amazing considering how the car was sliding and drifting. Eventually, someone would go a millimeter too far and the rear tire would contact the wall making a loud screeching, scraping noise as the tire ricocheted off the concrete leaving these kind of marks. Sometimes someone would go a millimeter too far and the tire would explode with the power of the impact. Usually a sickening sound of the crashing and crumpling of rear suspension and bodywork followed.

  2. Thanks a lot Dale… After a long time dealing with Drag Races I’ve got used with the brutality and forgot completly about the precision of track racing. Your explanation is superb and made me see the pics from another angle. Sorry for the Jack Ass coment.
