Feel the ground rumble, see the dirt fly and experience a serious adrenaline spike as hand-built street bikes go handlebar to handlebar during the Buffalo Chip Moto Stampede Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017. A crazy crew of unruly racers will be rounding out a full day of racing with a series of Super Hooligan events during Roland Sands Design’s Super Hooligan Showdown Presented by Indian Motorcycle®, and when they do, you’ll want to be sure you’re not left in the dust. The already crazy day will then go completely off the rails when the Godfather of Heavy Metal, Ozzy Osbourne, rains down from the Wolfman Jack Stage with the revolutionary riffage that’s inspired every metal band since!

What is Hooligan Racing?

This is a throwback to the days when young men lightened and tweaked their street machines into dirt track racers. Racing was done at local tracks and vacant lots where friends could gather to cheer on their buddies, race whatever bike they owned, then ride that bike home. The Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club of Sturgis may have been the first ones to elevate flat track racing and organize a hooligan race with American-made V-twins back in the 1930s. RSD’s Super Hooligan and Indian Motorcycle’s recent efforts to revive the thrill and the “run what you brung” attitude has reignited this fire in today’s moto and custom enthusiasts.  

Hooligan rules are loose and limit the bikes to 750CC and up twins in stock frames with dirt track tires and no front brakes. The rules are meant to open up the racing to many manufacturers, creating exciting multi-brand racing. 

About the Track & Races

The RSD Super Hooligan Races presented by Indian Motorcycle allow you to experience the excitement and surprises of traditional heritage racing in an intimate setting. As a spectator, you’ll be able to line the raceway and feel the grit and dust as competitors scramble for the lead.

The Buffalo Chip’s dirt flat track circles the infield between the legendary Wolfman Jack Stage and the Top Shelf with a couple of fairly sharp turns that should give racers pause, but haven’t yet.

Super hooligan racer Roland Sands and crew are slated to bring the highly competitive RSD Super Hooligan Indian Scout Sixty’s out. Two custom 2017 Scout Sixties that will be tearing up the track—one built by Roland Sands and the other built by Carey Hart of RCH Racing—will be given away later in the night from the main stage for the Buffalo Chip’s Moto Stampede Bike Giveaway. Register online to win one of them now!
