dBDRA Announces Bagger Beatz Motorcycle Format
The dB Drag Racing Association Launches Bagger Beatz Audio Competition Format for Motorcycles
The dB Drag Racing Association is excited to announce a new format of competition named “Bagger Beatz” that is aimed with the Motorcycle enthusiasts in mind. As the aftermarket audio is seeing a surge in Motorcycle audio competition, this new format hopes to bring additional competitive audio interest to the bike world.
Bagger Beatz is a sound competition format developed exclusively for motorcycles. In a Bagger Beatz competition, contestants compete against one another to see who has the loudest sound system. Each contestant's score is comprised of two components... "Peak SPL" and "Broadband Peak Average". The Broadband Peak Average component is new and will ensure that the contestant's sound system is capable of playing music across the entire musical spectrum. The average of these two components represents the contestant's overall score. The contestant with the highest overall score wins.
The formation of the motorcycle audio competition format has been in the works for a while. Long time audio veteran, Scott Owens of Insane Asylum Motorsports, has been instrumental in nudging the dBDRA to launch the format. Scott Owens started out as a dB Drag Racing competitor back in the early 2000’s. He then turned his love and passion of audio into building custom audio systems for Harley’s. Scott has continued in the audio industry on 2 wheels instead of 4 and is excited to get back into the lanes on his bike and see some stats back up on the dBDRA leaderboard. Scott is also serving on the rules committee along with Chris Lowe of Garage Bagger Stereo. Both of these guys are motorcycle enthusiasts with a passion for audio.
Chris Lowe, owner of Garage Bagger Stereo, caught the Car Audio Bug in the mid 80’s when he was only 16 years old. He was hooked after he installed his first speaker, amp, radio and sub in his ‘82 Buick Regal! He ran a car audio shop for several years before moving into the corporate world. With his passion still in audio, Chris installed an audio system on his first Harley that he bought in 2012. Chris realized a need for better sounding, louder, cleaner installs on bikes, and Garage Bagger Stereo was born in his garage. After a year in the garage, he moved to a 1100 square foot shop. Online sales were through the roof and bikes were rolling in from all over to have Bagger Audio upgrades. As time flew, his business grew and they moved into a larger 6000 square foot shop to fit more bikes. He was once again able to turn his passion for audio into a business. His company has grown and their main goal is to make sure their customers are taken care of. They also focus on building some of the loudest, cleanest sounding, killer audio Bagger systems in the U.S.
