BAKO SAND DRAGS

image

Bako Sand Drags at the Central Valley Sportsman Boat and R.V. Show.  This is the 9th year for the sand
drags event and is being put on this year by Robert and Christy Garnas. Robert has been racing for over
23 years. Christy has been helping with running the ladders at numerous events, and has also been
racing for over 10 years. They have traveled the West Coast and as far east as Louisiana to race their
quads. They have raced in races put on by the NSDA, ASDA, PSDRA , SCSDA, Kingman Sand Drags,
Oregon Sand Drags and Avenal Sand Drags.

Sand Drag racing is done on a dirt/sand track. The surface is “fluffed” with the use of tractors and
dragging devices. The track is 100yds. There are two different classes of racers, the first are Pro racers
and the second are Sportsman racers. The racers use a lighting system known in the drag racing industry
as a “Christmas Tree”. Depending on what class is racing, will depend on how the lights on the tree drop.
The lights on a Pro tree drop all at the same time, and the lights on a Sportsman tree drops one at a
time. It is a lot like the NHRA, just done in the dirt and on a shorter track.

Last year there were 196 race entries, with the special event Doughboy Race.  The fastest pass a bike has
made at the event was a pass at 3.36 seconds at over 100 miles per hour. There will be some of the
fastest bikes on the West Coast trying to beat that time. Some of the bikes that will be coming out will
be running close to 100mph and getting to the finish line in just over 3 seconds. There will be racers
coming in from Oregon, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Michigan, Louisiana, Puerto Rico and all over California.

There will be index racing and bracket racing, heads-up racing and also a class for kids.

So come on out and watch some of the fastest bikes on the West Coast. Racing will be Thursday
February 25, through Sunday, February 28, during the Central Valley Sportsmen’s Boat and RV Show.
