Blow Off Some Steam

One of our favorite moments at Mustang Week is, obviously, the SVTP/Discount Tire burnout contest. It’s one of the wildest displays of tire smoke and car control—or out of control in some cases—you will see this side of Formula Drift.
Well, sometimes those short of high-revving, tire-smoking antics will take their toll. Tires have popped, hoses have let go, and cars have limped away. If your ride is up to the task and the crowd loves it, you might just be the big winner.
Sometimes those that take it all the way to the limit get a little extra love from the crowd when something lets go. However, if it happens after the contest, you are out of luck. Such was the case with this participant. He pulled up for the crowd vote and revved on time too many. A coolant hose let go, and his car went up in a cloud of steam.
When it doesn’t happen to your car, that makes it funny. It also makes it caption contest-worthy. So post your funny caption in the comments below by midnight on Thursday October 2. We’ll pick our favorite funny and let the winner know when the next contest goes live. The winner will join the cool kids’ club by winning an SVTPerformance.com decal for his or her ride.
