Hooligan racing is a throwback to the days when young men lightened and tweaked their street machines into dirt track racers. Roland Sands Design and Indian Motorcycle’s recent efforts to help revive the thrill of flat track racing has reignited a fire that still burns brightly with today’s moto and custom enthusiasts.
The dirt oval race track, built by IV League Flat Track, circles the main grounds of the Buffalo Chip infield between the Wolfman Jack Stage and the Top Shelf. Spectators will be lining the raceway where they unquestionably will feel the grit and dust as competitors back it in sideways through the turns and fight for the lead. To make this wild event even more interesting, one of the races will be completely inappropriate; racers may show up in costumes, crazy helmets or whatever strikes their fancy. Hooligan racer Roland Sands and crew are slated to bring out the highly competitive, RSD-modified, Indian Scout Sixty race bikes for battle.
Buffalo Chip Street Drag Invitational with Crazy John
Crazy John Markwald and friends will be racing bikes typically seen on the cover of the nation’s top motorcycle magazines or displayed behind velvet ropes at the biggest shows. These hot rods with top performance parts and over-the-top paint jobs will reach speeds of up to 120 mph before passing under the steel bridge finish line. There will be ample opportunity for
premium viewing in the Chip’s amphitheater.
Rock to Rip Faces Off
The rock party following the day of adrenaline-fueled, clutch-popping racing action will keep the rpms spinning until the final note of headliner Five Finger Death Punch’s performance. The award-winning band’s energy and rhythmic style has propelled them to the top of the charts and into the hearts of rock fans worldwide. Their album “The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volumes 1 and 2” each landed at no. 2 on Billboard’s 200 in just one week. Reverend Horton Heat and Low Volts will round out the Moto Stampede concerts on the main stage on Wednesday, Aug. 10.
