Street Driven Tour’s “Drift Mini Games” also returned toward the end of the day, with three crowd-favorites taking place on the Full Course after NASA racing had ended:

? Hard Parking Challenge, where entrants drift toward a wall of boxes and compete for who can come to rest the closest, without contact

? Drift Soccer, in which competitors attempt to drift a tee’d soccer ball into a goal

? 360 Drift, in which competitors connect two turns of the VIR Full Course with 360-degree drifts

Ending things with a real bang this year was the Tire Massacre, which saw epic burnout after epic burnout, without a single failed attempt. Entrants included everything from Mike Prez’s Supra, to a vintage BMW and a Barbie Cart competitor’s daily-driven Ford Escort, to no fewer than three Miatas, and even a donut-spinning late-model Ford Mustang.

But the hands-down winner became Trent Doak, the moment his V8-swapped Miata erupted in a blaze of glory after a shift into sixth gear at the end of a big smoker roasted his clutch instead of his tires, and sent chunks of glowing flywheel shooting out from underhood, piercing a fuel line in the process. Lesson learned: Scatter-shields are a good thing. Watching your car nearly burn to the ground … not so much.
