Ben Bray's Burnout Ute
Remember this beast? Ben Bray's Holden VY SS ute. They built this car specifically for burnout from a brand new Holden shell and filled it full supercharged Hemi goodness. Here's some video of it cutting loose at Supernats some years ago.

The Fuchs Winternationals (4-7 June) will host the comeback of three-time national champion Ben Bray, following a headline-making incident at the same event twelve months ago. On the Saturday of the 2014 Fuchs Winternationals Bray was undertaking double-duties in the Top Doorslammer and Factory Xtreme brackets, and made national headlines when his FX Nissan Altima race car rolled, hit the safety wall of Willowbank Raceway roof-first, and then came to stop on its roof during last year’s Fuchs Winternationals. The impact left the 31 year old father of two with rib and back injuries, seeing him restrained in a full body brace for three months. While the Kallangur resident was due to make his come-back at Willowbank’s Santo’s Super 3 Extreme Drag Race event presented by Uplift Cranes and Titan Cranes in April, that event was unfortunately cancelled due to the extreme weather experienced by South East Queensland that weekend. That cancellation saw the team’s focus turn to Sydney’s Nitro Champs instead, but in an incredible turn of events that event too was cancelled due to poor weather conditions.
