In '98, the burnout contest was run with two cars at once and people didn't like it, so single-car burnouts were back for 1999 with a 30-second time limit for the Saturday round. Sunday's carnage brought back the winners with a 30-second warning and a driver option for sustained smoke show action.

Owner Kevin Weber from Sleepy Eye, Minnesota, was down but not out and vowed to come back next year and win the contest.
