We often see drag racers popping wheelies thanks to massive amounts of power resulting in unintended consequences. But, this particular race is all about getting the front wheels in the air for the full quarter-mile run.

The second place runner (below), Brian Ambrosini and his AMC Gremlin, kept the muscle hatch up for 570 ft before touchdown.
