Burn Rubber

  • Monday, July 20, 2009

From the roar of the engines, to the intoxicating smell of exhaust fumes and burnt rubber; racing stimulates the senses. While some may not truly appreciate the sport of drag racing -- those that do race love it.
Don Benton of Hampton, for example, has been racing since he was a kid. He used to race his dad on tractors every day as they headed home on the farm and always lost. He finally realized his dad would tinker with the engines to make his tractor faster to beat Don.
"One day we went home and we raced and I beat daddy because I knew his trick and I have been hooked ever since," he said.
