“We had a gas racing the Scout Super Hooligans in Las Vegas, so we really wanted to hit the road and do some more, similar events with riders from around the country,” said Roland Sands. “At the same time, Indian Motorcycle said it was excited about putting the Scouts on the
track, so it was a natural fit to help promote these Hooligan events where we could ride!”
The spirit of hooligan racing comes from a simpler time, when you raced – and could ride home on – any bike you owned. With its roots in Southern California motorcycle culture, today’s flat track hooligan racing category is rapidly gaining in popularity with riders of all ages and experience levels across the nation by offering the fun of motorcycle competition in a less structured environment. Combining the craft of custom motorcycles and racing the SuperHooligan rules are loose and limit the bikes to 750CC and up twins in stock frames with dirt track tires and no front brakes.
The RSD SuperHooligan Indian Scout Sixty bikes first hit the track in November 2015, in conjunction with the “Superprestigio of the Americas” flat track race sanctioned by AMA Pro Flat Track. Racers included Roland Sands, Drake McElroy, Travis Newbold, Brendon Lutes and Aaron Colton. All five bikes competed through to the class’ mainevent and Roland himself finished third, taking Indian Motorcycle to its first podium finish in AMA flat track in manyyears.
