Lowbrow Customs is proud to sponsor motorcycle rider/racer Mark Atkins aka Rusty Butcher. Mark is well know for his crazy motorcycle riding antics on his Sportster, jumping things that shouldn't be jumped and riding where others would never think. In the past few years, Rusty Butcher has become a house hold name in the industry and the staple when it comes to Tracker style bikes. Mark is constantly pushing the envelop when it comes to riding motorcycles and he has been getting more involved in flat track racing, dominating his division over the past year. Del Mar was the first flat track race weekend of 2016 in California and our friend's Jonathan Griffith and Garrett Riker gave us a glimpse into the weekend's madness.
Mark has taken his dream to a new heights this year with the development of a full blown race team. Team Rusty Butcher is made up of Mark Atkins, Travis Hayes, Marcel Nunez, and Cory Rushford.
Cory had a bit of a slip up on the first night, he hurt his ankle but no real serious injuries.
All Rusty Butchers bikes are equipped with our Tsunami Fender.
Our friend Scott T-bone Jones was racing this killer Ironhead.
Mark Atkins ended up taking 1st place in their division and Travis Hayes took home 2nd. Call it a successful first of the year race for Team Rusty Butcher. If you don't already follow Rusty Butcher, you should probably get on that. You can also find more photos and info about Mark and his team on Rustybutcher.com
