Mardi Gras the First Race of 2017

Mardi Gras on the Bayou took the tree as the first motorcycle drag race of the new year. This time the Mardi Gras went down in cajun country at No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose, Louisiana.

With perfect weather, a huge crowd of grudge bikes swamped the staging lanes along with a healthy dose of bracket racers from all over the region.

Hand clutches, sliders, Boozefighter Harleys, Pro Mod cars, Grudge bikes like Can’t Get Right, Black Ops, Bloody Mary, Geronimo and Metal Mulisha—the track was live day and night with constant action.







Here’s a highlight video of the event:
