The record for world's largest simultaneous tire burnout is up in the air. A mile high.
Organizers of an attempt to break the record at Bandimere Speedway near Denver on Aug. 18 are waiting for Guinness World Records to rule on their application.
The event included 170 cars smoking their tires at the same time, which would beat the current mark of 126 cars set in Australia in January.
A representative from event organizer 107.9 KBPI told Fox News Autos that a Guinness judge was not present, and that it could be several days before the organization responds to the application, which was filed on Aug 21. and included visual and testimonial evidence.
This story originally said the record had been denied, but has been updated with new information from the organizer.
