Sprint car racing is known for its high intensity, side-by-side, 800 horsepower, sideways racing. But on July 9, 2011, Santa Maria Speedway hosted the third annual $1,000 winner take all 410 sprint wheelie contest. In a sport that’s main focus is to keep the tires on the track, this contest challenged drivers to get the speeds up high and the front wheels even higher for fans in California. The three contestants were the 0B1 of Orval Burke Sr., the 29 of Bud Kaeding and the 4S of Dan Simpson. Check it out to see an entirely different angle to sprint car racing. One driver not only gets his front wheels off the ground, but his rear wheels too. You’ve got to see this, to understand just how fearless these drivers truly are!
