To perform the Skill, you need to head to an area with a very long straightaway. A drag racing track is probably the best place to go, as it is one huge straightaway you can take advantage of. Once there, be sure you have plenty of track in front of you. Then, hold on the brake and the accelerator at the same time to perform a burnout. This will mark the beginning of the Skill. From here, let go of the brake and begin accelerating. You need to reach 275 miles per hour, at which point you will receive points for the Great Speed Skill. You should then immediately get the Hard Charger Skill as well, completing the challenge.

Now that you know exactly what is required to perform the Hard Charger Skill, you might be wondering the easiest way to go about doing it. Along with finding a nice straightaway, you're going to want to bring the best muscle car you have. Muscle cars excel in straightaway situations due to their great acceleration, so bringing one that can reach 275 miles per hour is your best bet for breezing through this challenge.
