December is the start of many things: holiday music, wrapping paper hell, the time when your kids bring you lists of stuff that need to be decoded and checked to see what your budget will allow. It’s also the beginning of the “year in review” features that anyone who works in this business tends to do. We cover a LOT over the course of a year, and in that time frame we see tons of things that leave us drop-jawed. With the large amounts of drag racing that we cover throughout the year, wheelstands are certainly one of the most dramatic spectacles that show up. We aren’t talking a couple of inches off of the line, folks. We’re talking through the beams on the rears thanks to a turbo car’s power wheelstand. We’re talking Mustangs going perfectly vertical at the hit. We’re talking all four off and flight taking place because a driver happens to have a “never lift” mentality. For those couple of seconds, our hearts are in our throats as we hope that what happens next doesn’t require anything more than a track scrubber and a firesuit check for the wheelman. In case you missed some of the livestream action or if you just wanted to watch a collection of cars flip gravity the middle finger, we have your fix for you right here!
