F-150 Aims to Please Ken Block: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday
Ford F-150 owner takes part in Ken Block’s popular #KillAllTires video contest. So he does exactly that!
This week’s “Tire Smokin’ Tuesday” video features an eleventh-generation (2004-2008) Ford F-150 work truck. The footage comes courtesy of Cheapshot27, who puts together a big, nasty burnout for the Hoonigan Burnout Kings contest.
If you are unfamiliar with the efforts of the Hoonigan Racing Team, you might want to Google drifting legend Ken Block. Block is best known for his action-packed, tire-shredding videos where he slips and slides his way around unique settings – ranging from the streets of San Francisco to a Hollywood movie studio. This type of action is referred to as “hooning” or “hoonage.” With Block arguably being the best at it, he became known as the Hoonigan.
With that short history lesson out of the way, you have a better idea what this Burnout Kings contest is all about.
The owner of this mid-2000s F-150 threw his hat in the social media ring to have a shot at various prizes. It features his high-mileage work truck slaying the rear tires in glorious fashion. We don’t know much about this truck, but it sure sounds like it’s powered by the 5.4L Triton V8.
We were highly entertained by more than minutes of burnout action – including some donuts at the end. We must admit that this is one serious burnout, and the amounts of white smoke are simply massive. We would’ve loved to have a wider angle to appreciate the big cloud of smoke behind the truck, but we can’t really complain. After all, this video is better than the average. Trust us, we know.
While we don’t know if he won the contest, but we do know that he put on a hell of a show!
