Sturgis. Baker’s 2nd Annual “All In To Go All-Out” Drag Days. 1st Annual Drag School.

1BakerSturgisDo you want to get arrested in Sturgis? For street racing? Sure, spending the night in jail makes for a hell of a story back home but the BAKER jailhouse spies tell us the food is not that good.  You can bypass a face-to-face meeting with the local judge by joining BAKER at the legendary Sturgis Dragway on Tuesday August 9th from 6:30-10pm.  The rules are simple: 1 Free admission for racers and spectators; no tricks or gimmicks. 2Two-wheeled vehicles only. 3 Grudge, get your best ET or put the spank on your loudmouthed riding buddy.

Bert Baker, co-founder of BAKER Drivetrain and 2016 Sturgis Hall Of Fame inductee, throws this event for fellow racers and performance-nuts to commit “all-in” so they can go “all-out” and to encourage those who have never been on a drag strip to take the plunge. Like last year, the atmosphere will cater to 8 second drag bikes and 5hp mini bikes alike. This year, even more “fuckery” is expected as Bert has teamed up with Verl ‘Smitty’ Smith to offer a motorcycle drag racing school the morning of the event. At The Sturgis Dragway, Tuesday August 9 from 6.30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

2BakerSturgisTo take it to the next level, Bert Baker and his BAKER crew are teaming up with the famous drag racer Verl “Smitty” Smith (A.K.A., “Mr. Excitement”), an all-out, competitive drag racer with a personal best of 8.88 seconds @155.68ET ¼ mile. Whether it’s your first time on the drag strip or you’ve been racing for years, this is your opportunity to learn from the expert. If you’re new to the sport Mr. Excitement will teach you what you need to know to make your own ¼ mile passes with confidence. If  you’re a seasoned racer you can hone your skills.

This special drag racing school will be held Tuesday, August 9 from 9am until noon.  Participants in the school can be poised to break personal records, win grudge match-ups or wow spectators at the All-in to go All-out races later that evening at the same location. There is a $50 fee to participate in the drag racing school with a max capacity of 40 racers. Visit Baker Drivetrain Drag School to register or call (517) 339-3835 for more information.

    Hey Baker. A better idea than your burnouts to get lung cancer.

    Wow, drags and ama pro flat track races the same time and same night. Got to figure out how to TiVo one or the other even though neither are on TV. Leaning toward going to the flat track and see the pros. Or, would the amateur drag racers be more fun to watch??? Decisions, decisions.
