500 Motorcycle Burnout at S&S Smokeout
Thursday, July 29, 2010
Let's roast some tires! S&S Cycle is looking for 500 bikers to help them set a world record at the S&S Smokeout at the Broken Spoke Campground to be held during Sturgis 2010.
The smell of spent rubber will soon fill the air of the Broken Spoke Campground as 500 motorcycles doing burnouts at the same time will attempt to set a world record during the 70th annual Sturgis Rally. The event is called the S&S Smokeout and it’s going down on Thursday, August 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Broken Spoke Campground. S&S Cycle is not only sponsoring the event, it’s also putting up an S&S 92” V-Twin as a raffle prize.
If you’re headed to Sturgis and would like to be part of history, be at the Broken Spoke Campground on August 12th between noon and 3:00 p.m. to sign up. If you are camping at the Broken Spoke, you can pre-register by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
to reserve your number. Please include your Broken Spoke Campground confirmation number in your email. All contestants will be required to sign a waiver and if they aren’t present by 3:00 p.m., their number will be given to someone else. Participants’ safety is paramount, so the Broken Spoke will bring in concrete jersey barriers for riders to buffer their front wheels against. Then it’s time to rev the throttle, drop the clutch and get those back tires a-smokin.’ S&S and the Broken Spoke want to make a cloud so big you can see it from space.
Each rider will receive a number and a certificate to prove that they were a part of this record-breaking event. Last year’s burnout was big, but this year promises to be even bigger. As Bert Baker said at Baker Drivetrain’s Smoke-Down Showdown last year, “It’s all just stupid fun.” Be a part of history or just come check out the tire-roasting party.
