HAGERSTOWN - It's hard to say what's so appealing about it.
Greg Chider, of Williamsport, said he's not sure why, but he loves watching those tires spin. He enjoys watching the smoke overtake the car. And of course he loves the noise.
Chider and his stepson, Taylor Leonard, 15, were in the front row Sunday for a burnout competition that was part of a car, truck and motorcycle show at Tri-State Fellowship in Hagerstown. Taylor said it was his first time at a burnout competition, which features stationary vehicles spinning their wheels, causing the tires to heat up and smoke.
"Maybe next year it will be you doing it," Lucille Fitzwater, Chider's mother-in-law, told her grandson.
It was the second annual show hosted by the church.
"I just like seeing the smoke," Greg Chider said. "It's a lot of smoke."
Jeff Smith, who helped organize Sunday's event, won last year's burnout competition. He competed again this year.
