ers and promoters of the Bako Sand
Drags. The event has been held annually since 2007, with help from sponsors like Coors Light, Ultra Gro Plant
Food, RBT Motorsports and a number
of local businesses. The event is part
of the Central Valley Sportsman Boat
and RV Show, so there’s camping,
plenty of food vendors and a good
time with your family and new racer
friends. There is a trout fishing pond,
a tractor pull show on Saturday night,
and this year they even raffled off a
250R at the track on Sunday!
Bako is a great opportunity for
any rider who’s ever wanted to try
sand-drag track racing. Be warned:
sand-drag racing is a very addict-
ing sport because it’s a lot of fun!

you lining up at the lights at the next
event! Stay tuned to Dirt Wheels for
upcoming sand-drag articles. ❏
