VooDoo Tennessee Bike Rumble
The Southeastern Drag Bike Association hosted the VooDoo Custom Motorcycle Components Tennessee Bike Rumble on June 20th, 2020 at Crossville Dragway in Crossville TN. It was a hot day for sure with the sun bearing down on the racers all day! The track was also hosting several Street Outlaw car appearances and a small car show so there were spectators that may have learned a little about motorcycle drag racing as 192 motorcycles filled the 1/8 mile track in northern Tennessee.
As mentioned before and always, the SDBA will continue to monitor each race and work to improve to become the best it can be. We thank everyone for their patience, as there were some issues with ladders due to communication errors with the tower. Each track is different, and this was the SDBA’s first event at Crossville. We will be handling qualifying and laddering going forward and improving our news and delivery of qualifying and race results.
The 865 Racing 32-bike Shootout on Friday night was won by Garreth Sheppard for a major payday in his win over Ronnie Woodall Sr. Sheppard’s .034 reaction time and 5.027 on a 5.02 dial got the best of Ronnie’s .022 light and 5.8223 breakout on a 5.83 dial.
