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, sponsored 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 brand new Buffalo Chip 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 probably won’t.

Super hooligan racer Roland Sands and crew are slated to bring the highly competitive RSD Super Hooligan Indian Scout Sixty’s out.
