Salem Super Cruise does away with annual Burn Out Pit

Posted: Updated:

SALEM, Ohio - The annual Salem Super Cruise is just a week away, but a popular feature at the car cruise event won't be happening this year.

It's called the "Burn Out Pit," where hot rodders see who can do the longest and best tire burn out.

A spokesman says an insurance related issue and other factors caused the burn out to be canceled this year, but the sponsor expects to bring it back for 2014.

All other features of the Salem Super Cruise are still on schedule for June 20 through the 23.
