The 23rd annual WPGC DC Bikefest fought one of it’s toughest battles at Maryland International Raceway (MIR) in Mechanicsville, MD this year and the opponent was Mother Nature. The XDA staff had to constantly adjust the schedule of events around the changing the weather so that the event would be a success.

Riders from near and far descended upon Maryland International Raceway to enjoy the races, sound contest, custom bike show, live music performances, featuring Critical Condition Band (CCB). The WPGC stage was jamming with DJ Flexx. The lovely women in the bikini contest from the International Bikini Team surely give the fans enough to keep their adrenaline pumping all day. The Xtreme Dragbike Association (XDA) also attracted racers from many other states to participate in this fun filled event. The XDA is known as the nation’s largest motorcycle drag racing series hosting racers from all over the country at each event.

Motorcycle supporters were on site for this for 3-day festival along the vendor midway. The XDA class structure is very diverse and appeals to novice and hardcore motorcycle enthusiasts. Classes include: Orient Express Pro Street, DME Racing Real Street, Maxx ECU Pro Xtreme, HTP Performance Super Stock, Vance & Hines 4.60 Index, XDA Boosted Bulls, APE Nitrous Bulls, 365 Transport Monster Bulls, Tommie’s Motorsports DMV Bulls, 1 Stop Speed 5.60 Index, HTP Performance Grudge, Mickey Thompson Tires Top Sportsman, MPS Pro E.T. , Brock’s Performance Street E.T. , VooDoo Components Bracket Bash and the Hard Times Gambler’s Race. Over 700 riders participated in these races, blaring down the track and setting records all weekend competing for over $90,000 in cash money at this event.

Team Money Cycles held their “Speed and Sound” Tour at this event on Saturday with a Sound Competition and Custom Bike Show. The group brought in some of the wildest custom bikes you have ever seen. The King of the Hill Bike Show and Sound Competition took over the main stage under the tent where the party continued.

Through the hot weather and rain, it still turned out to be a great event and we look forward to next year. Fingers crossed that they weather is a bit more favorable to us. Please enjoy the photo gallery.
