Burnouts, bikes, builders, bands, brews, and buds. The SmokeOut Rally in Salisbury, NC has it all and more. For over two decades, the SmokeOut Rally has been bringing together likeminded riders in a celebration of custom motorcycle culture. Last year Dennis Kirk signed on as the Title Sponsor for the Rally and we enjoyed it so much that are back on for the ’23 Rally.
The ’23 SmokeOut Rally takes place from September 7th to September 10th for four days of events and shows. Each day of the rally features different events and shows to keep the party going. Custom bike shows include a feature bike gallery, Perewitz Custom Paint Show, Dream Rides FXR Show, Ride In Custom bike show, and Led Sled Sportster Showdown. Racing action includes Mini Bike races with and without costumes and Old Time Dirt Drags. Great music acts are featured every night of the rally. Other events include the popular Hammer’s Strongest Biker, Shadetree Biker Games, Wet T-Shirt contest, drive-in movies & bonfire, and bike blessings.
The SmokeOut Rally has also set out to give back to the community. Last year, Paughco donated unfinished gas tanks that were then sent out to custom painters. Those tanks were then auctioned off at the rally and all the proceeds went to Meals on Wheels benefitting seniors in the Salidbury, NC and Spearfish, SD areas. The auction was a success and will once again be happening at this year’s rally. Be sure to check out these true pieces of motorcycle art and bid for a chance to take one home.
There are plenty of accommodations available for all styles of rally goers. For the pure rally experience, camping is available on site at the fairgrounds. Both tent and RV/camper sites are available. There are also plenty of hotels and other campgrounds around the area as well.
