SANTA ROSA, California (September 25, 2016) – Screamin’ Eagle Harley-Davidson factory rider Brad “The Bullet” Baker dominated the field to win the Ramspur Winery Santa Rosa Mile by a commanding 10.5 seconds. Riding a Harley-Davidson® XR750 motorcycle, the win on the track at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds is first of the 2016 season for Baker in four combined podium appearances on the 14-race schedule.
