“Bagger Racing League’s melding of high-performance and touring motorcycles is something new and exciting,” said Mock. “I’m honored to be on board, and I’m raring to begin my race directorship at the inaugural event in June.”
Dan Berkes is confirmed as the Technical Director and brings a wealth of V-Twin specific performance knowledge and experience. Berke’s experience in a Harley-Davidson dealership, as an aftermarket parts shop owner and aftermarket performance parts distributor as well as his attention to detail will be invaluable as the Technical Director of the Bagger Racing League.

“Within hours of announcing the Bagger Racing League, we had over 20 teams signed contracts to race with the Bagger Racing League. In the subsequent weeks, the groundswell of support has proven the need for a V-Twin centric race and rally. We can’t wait to see everyone at the Drag Specialties Battle of the Baggers in Salt Lake City at the end of June and have the best 3 days of V-Twin racing in history” Said Bagger Racing League COO, John M. Oakes.
