Garage71 Radio Produces the Mini Bike and Drift Trike Races

Garage71 is proud to be producing the Smoke Out 18 Mini Bike and Drift Trike Races for the first time! Garage71 has been coming to the Smoke Out for years as first just spectators and then as promoters. We have had nothing but great times each and every year at the Smoke Out, the Kustom Kulture Industry Party of the Year!

The Smoke Out’s mini bike races is one of the most entertaining portions of the day, drawing a huge crowd of spectators that look forward to getting a glimpse of the crazy costumed racers on their lil’ lawnmower powered machines.

Craziness and creativity are the driving forces behind the costumes and the lawnmower powered bikes, as racers compete for the coveted first prize and bragging rights for the year!

Competition is intense, but a few of the competitors seemed less than serious

There is also a separate ladies only class, not only does the Powder Puff race bring the heat, some of the costumes are pretty easy on the eyes.

Participants sign-in on Friday and Saturday morning at the Garage71 Booth, which is located adjacent to the Horse T-shirt booth. Come visit “Big Boy” and RadioFox for all the details. Bring your bike to the sign up and racers will get their bike number and receive a wristband.

Only racers with wristbands and pre-registered bikes can race. Your team must be dressed in costume for the race. No costume, No racing! All racers MUST wear a helmet and sign a release form. No helmet, no racing! No release, no racing! Dam people, play by the rules! It’s all for fun anyway…

Please follow the rules (you are not winning money here, people) be safe, and bring your friends as your cheering section so that we can continue this entertaining event at the Smoke Out for years to come!
