The Western Motorcycle Drag Racing Association (WMDRA) is pleased to announce that they will host the International Master Bike Builder Association (IMBBA) North American Championship Bike Show and Hall of Fame Induction at Sturgis Dragway on Tuesday, August 6, 2013.
“The WMDRA is thrilled to share the artistry and craftsmanship of the IMBBA North American Championships with our drag racing fans at the 2013 AMSOIL Sturgis Nationals,” according to WMDRA President Sandra Alberti. “We’re very excited to also have the IMBBA Master Judges tour the pits and award special recognition to the performance bike of their choice.”
As an international community of bike builders and industry professionals, IMBBA members have vowed to leave the industry better than they found it through education and training, and top bike builders in North America and representative builders in eleven countries have embraced the point system developed by the organization to create and implement a certification process for builders and skilled technicians. This mission is accomplished through authoring and endorsing educational books, designed to share the membership’s knowledge, skills and wisdom with a younger, aspiring generation of bike builders and other industry craftsmen. An IMBBA training curriculum is currently being utilized in two counties and in five motorcycle mechanic technical schools.
According to IMBBA Founder and President Jeff Starke, “Partnering with the WMDRA for our North American Championships brings about a unique opportunity to showcase the artistry of show bikes alongside high-performance drag racing machines.”
The IMBBA North American Championships will take place on Tuesday, August 6, 2013 at Sturgis Dragway, located at 20523 Hwy 79, just off Hwy 34 between the Full Throttle and Buffalo Chip. A full schedule of activities will be published in IMBBA’s June newsletter.
