5 Most Dangerous Places to Drive Your Hotrod

For some auto enthusiasts, the sight of the open road is what revs their engines. Some of us prefer to live dangerously and our hearts are tied to the drag strip. It’s even better when drag races happen in real places with enough of a fear quotient to sweeten the deal. Here are 5 of the most dangerous places to drive your hotrod:

1. Skyline Parkway, Duluth, Minnesota

If the winters of northern Minnesota seem forbidding to you, then try Skyline Parkway in Duluth. This breathtaking overlook full of twists and turns was a favorite spot of drag racers back in the 50’s and 60’s. It’s a real challenge for the speed and handling of any vehicle, and during wintertime can turn deadly, so best to keep it to the warmer months.

2. Road to Kona, Big Island of Hawai’i

The unparalleled beauty of this road is matched by the drama and adventure of taking the famous turns in the gulches by Laupahoehoe Point. Long a favorite of locals who once drank their beers while navigating these turns, there’s no better opportunity to put your hotrod through its paces than this beautiful highway on the Big Island.

3. Seven Mile Bridge, Florida Keys

Here’s a challenge for any dedicated auto enthusiasts out there: a race on the Seven Mile Bridge. One of the most famous sights in Florida, it’s been featured in action films like True Lies. When you’ve reached the end of the road, there’s always a cold beer and fresh snapper waiting for you at a diner on the next island.

4. Tijuana-Ensenada Corridor, Mexico

The incredible views of the Pacific Ocean are just another perk on this famous highway from the border to the fishing village of Ensenada. There’s a certain feeling of lawlessness already. Most of the danger here probably comes from run-ins with the law or other aggressive drivers, but it’s bound to get your adrenaline pumping.

5. Anywhere in the Rockies


Some of these mountain passes have been changed, roadways have smoothed, and traffic has been diverted from the most dangerous areas. Still, some of the most dangerous roads in America can be found along the continental divide, such as Colorado’s Wolf Creek Pass or Wyoming’s Bear Tooth Highway.



Auto enthusiasts will find that regardless of the tales of car accidents in many of these places, or perhaps because of them, these locations are ideal for the race of a lifetime.
