The Mike Bahnmaier Racing Team opened their 2013 trip to Sturgis
by displaying several drag bikes at the Fort Meade VA Medical Center on August
4th. A tradition started by Verl Smith, who was unable to attend this
year, was continued by Freddie Robbins of the Bahnmaier team. The
Bahnmaier team enjoyed visiting with approximately 30 veterans, some that the
team has gotten to know over the past three years. Many thanks to the
hospital for their hospitality and the team plans to return in 2014.
