Don Prudhomme in the B&M TorkMaster, 1966, “Huh? What’s a burnout?”
As I remember, the first term for match race cars on the circuit, including AA/GS, and early Funny Cars, was "Burn Through", around 1967. Spinning their tires through the rosin (Gold Dust) sprinkled on the lanes, and over the starting line.
@65pacecar thanks for sharing such great pictures!
Ron Pellegrini...the early days.
Rader Wheels would be my answer. But I saw a Hot Rod mag article that called them Rebels. Lots of '60s TF experts on this site could sort this out.
