When two of dirt tracking‘s top talents meet on a 1/8-mile in Salem, Oregon, all bets are off. That’s the scene for the Salem 1/8-mile main event, between two of dirt track’s biggest stars: current national champ Brad Baker and the hard-charging Sammy Halbert. Sure there were other racers in this main, including Davis Fisher, but the spotlight was on Baker and Halbert all night.
In this video from last weekend’s main, watch as these two combatants race each other ruthlessly, showing no mercy in their passes. Inside lunges, followed by forceful shoves were par for the course all race. Contact is a given, and the last two laps feature bar-banging action as Fisher strikes when the two leaders run themselves well off the racing line. What happens next? See below to find out.
