2012 Smoke Out Rally Video

Rally TV had cameras rolling while roaming the dragstrip, pits, parking lots, and campgrounds of Rockingham Speedway in Rockingham, North Carolina.

The crew was on scene over the weekend of June 22 and 23 to take in all the sights and sounds of Smoke Out Rally 13. The annual chopper rally, hosted by The Horse magazine, was bigger, badder, and better than ever; for some highlights, check out the clip above.

The Rally TV crew and hosts Sara Liberte and Bean’re hit the ground running and never stopped during the weekend of racing, classes, entertainment and music. The Rally TV crew was there to document all the wild custom and classic machines with their great looking paint jobs and metal work. The Horse satisfies the craving for chops, bobbers and creative customs, and all that and more was on display this past weekend.

In addition to mechanical bull riding, the All American Stunters, and the painted lady and pole dancing contests, a full slate of drag races filled the schedule – and the air – with the sights and sounds of the chopper subculture. One particularly memorable moment saw Bean’re in the sidecar of a 1940 Knucklehead for a trip down the strip – and you can take that ride with him, thanks to Rally TV.

Sara Liberte (Rally TV) says: “Rockingham is always rocking, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it. We’d like to thank the rally founders, our sponsors, those who attended, and those who could not attend, and hope you enjoyed the work we did documenting the event. We look forward to seeing you at Rockingham next year for number 14.”

To relive and reminisce about all the festivities, or get a feel for what Smoke Out 13 was all about if you were unlucky enough to miss it, visit the Rally TV website, Facebook page, or YouTube channel.

There, you’ll find videos documenting all of this year’s action, from the mini bike races – including a sidecar class and a matched set of Bert and Ernie participants – on a rain slicked course, drag races, the crowning of “condom man” as best costume, and more. If it happened, Rally TV was there, and you’ll see anyone and everyone sharing their Rockingham experiences with our crews.

Sara Liberte says: “It was the usual packed event weekend for us – shoot video all day, edit all night, including work in the van on the way home. We edit and post segments as fast as we can, to keep our viewers happy.”

Riders and viewers everywhere should be on the lookout for Rally TV at all the top motorcycle events in 2012, including Mountain Fest Cycle Source Bike Show July 27-28, Sturgis 2012 and Las Vegas Bike Fest September 27-30, 2012. Rely on Rally TV to get info on everything you need to know to make the most out of the next rally you attend; or, if you can’t make it in person, tune in to be part of the action from wherever you happen to be stuck. Rally TV will make sure you don’t miss a thing.

For Smoke Out 13, Rally TV was proud to partner with industry sponsors Quality Lifts, Baker Drivetrain, Bikernet.com, Twisted Tea, Vegas Bike Fest and Spectro Performance Oils.
