Last year, Garen Steinke scored a popular and surprise win in the Red Bull Straight Rhythm Two-Stroke class, besting all comers for the title, including heavy hitters Ryan Villopoto and Ronnie Mac. Carrying the number-one plate into this year’s event, Stank Dog embraced the 90s theme with his Bud Right KTM graphics and helmet paint. Sadly, he crashed out in the semi-finals in spectacular fashion, but that won’t hurt the Stank Dog’s popularity at all. We caught up with Steinke before the first gate drop to see what was up.
