We all love them – a nice big, white, smokey cloud of roasted tires coming off a vehicle after they just crossed the finish line. Whether it is on pavement or in the dirt there is no denying that a donut brings joy to all who see them.
We had the chance to catch up with RJ Anderson and get his take on what makes the perfect donut and what it is like to do one. Anderson who is known for his crazy antics in his UTV or short-course truck knows how to put on a show after a race.
“Everyone makes their own unique donut,” Anderson explained. “To do that, you first have to win. The donut is the easy part it is winning, especially in the classes that I am in, that is the difficult part.”
RJ Anderson who is racing UTVs and short-course in both a Pro2 and Pro4 vehicle has his hands full when he is not creating viral videos like XP1K4. As spectators, it appears to look super simple and easy in any vehicle he gets behind the wheel of, but is it really that simple?
“One burnout that sticks out among them all was for an intro trailer for XP1K3,” Anderson said. “We chained up the RZR and started to do a four-wheel-drive burnout. The chain was able to hold the RZR back and allowed us the burnout a full 360 degrees around the pillar. I ended up getting lost in the smoke from my own burnout.”
