  • Question for motor sports historians

    I remember (I think ) bac when I was a kid that on Saturday afternoon there were auto rodeos on tv.
    Demolition derbies, dirt track racing, and this crazy event that had a specially outfitted car....platform on the rear bumper, with grab-handles.
    The contestant wouldd stand on the platform as the car accelerated to a fixed speed, on a straight section of asphalt.
    Just before passing the start line he (women were too smart to participate ) would drop off onto his butt and the object was to side the farthest.
    The players would have a really thick leather pad strapped onto their aces. There was serious smoke pouring out, and the occasional fire.

    Does anyone else remember this, or did I dream it?

    What was it actually called?
    You know that you are a very poor driver when Siri says : "In 1/4 mile pull over and let me out...."
