Richard Rawlings, television show, energy drinker Impresario, and the restaurateur, have tried their hand on drag competition and failed in a brilliant impressive way. While racing against NHRA Top Fuel Ace, Leah Pritchett, Mr. Rawlings entered the left side of the K-Rail of Provisional Track on Woodward Avenue in Detroit. The crash was not harmful, but it was seriously screwed up on the left side of the car and moved the concrete wall a little.
When I first heard the news that Rawlings had hit a wall while driving a Hellcat during the Woodward Dream Cruise, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Drag racing is not simply, especially when you have supercharged Hemi power under your right foot. And then I watched the video.

First Rawlings makes a small baby burnout that hardly produces any smoke. It follows Pritchett's flamboyant and professionally performed burnout, which smells out Rawling's side of the track. Upon retaliation for being upstaged, he then enters the throttle for several seconds, producing a massive burnout that received applause. However, when the starter dropped his hands, Rawlings was still spinning the tires of their stationary and just pushing harder on the throttle. While Pritchett struggled with a spin to get a proper launch from the starting lineup, Rawling's smoke show took off the road, driving well down the track at a speed velocity over the car's speed.
When the car was finally connected, he was resistant to combustion and launched the car directly and partially up the track barrier. As they say in Michigan, "Open!"
