Sick Skids at M1 Concourse, presented by Gear Vendors Overdrive and Motion Raceworks was a huge success. We wanted to throw an epic burnout party to raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan and Bubba’s Buddies. The fans turned out in their thousands to watch some sweet cars do great burnouts! If you want to donate still, you can do so at
About 95% of the crowd had never seen Australian style burnouts in person and I think we made a lot of new fans. So many people came up to us afterwards and said they wanted to build burnout cars just for this next year. Between shows like this, and what Cleetus McFarland has been doing at the Freedom Factory and Bristol, I think burnouts are going to be massive in the USA!
We had a tie for first place between Derek (Vice Grip Garage) in the Independence Chevelle and Patrick in his red, white and blue truck – so it was a patriotic pair of winners! And a big shoutout to James in the Impala, he put that car together in just days and smashed it.
I didn’t go so well in the Blazer! Hey, I just wanted to give the fans something to remember. Thanks to everyone who came out.
