Motorcycle burnouts are almost as old as motorcycles. And during 2 Sturgis nights at the Broken Spoke County Line Baker Drivetrain entertained the crowds with their 3rd “Smoke-Down Show Down” It was chaos all over the place as 20 motorcycle builders installed 6 feet in the air in a new Burnout Cage (built by Wink eller & Jat Allen) were smoking the place until there was only one standing. When the air cleared, the winner both nights was, without a doubt, Kevin Alsop of Big Bear Choppers.
This year, industry builders competed head to head, two-by-two with new rules creating even more mayhem to please the spectators. This year Baker Drivetrain judges put in place a fool proof system to check the competitors. They checked for 1st gear, let the burnout happen with participants hitting an indicator button to declare they were in 5th gear. They checked that they were effectively in 5th, and if you were, you were declared the winner. It made the competition much more exciting and fast paced… The goods news is that the Broken Spoke Burnout Cage is now going to travel in all rallies where the famous bar is installed. So, expect more fury created by new builders all along the next 12 months.
