Veteran Returns to his home state of South Dakota for the Best Party Anywhere!

July 17, 2015 – Mooresville, North Carolina – Army veteran Brent Stott of Wilmington, North Carolina was randomly selected as the winner of the “Ultimate Trip to The Chip Sweepstakes” presented by Madvapes. Stott, an Army veteran who served two tour duties in Afghanistan, will return to his hometown of Deadwood, South Dakota to attend the event as guest of Madvapes and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. 

“We couldn’t be more excited that an American patriot won the ‘Trip to the Chip.’ What’s even more exciting is that Brent will be returning to his hometown of Deadwood, SD, located just a few miles up the road from Sturgis,” stated Mike Schriefer, marketing representative for Madvapes.  

One million bikers are expected to travel to the Black Hills region of South Dakota for this 75th anniversary of the Sturgis Rally. The winning package for the Trip to the Chip includes all travel expenses to and from North Carolina, a private RV to stay in on site at the Buffalo Chip Campground, a Victory® motorcycle to use during his stay, two VIP passes to all concert events, a 75th anniversary edition Ephiphone guitar and Deviate mod to take home with him.  

The winner will also have full access to the “Madvapes Ultimate Vape Lounge,” which will be sandwiched between the Budweiser Party Deck and the Jägermeister Stag Lodge. Madvapes will offer festival-goers the opportunity to test their latest hardware and e-liquids from leading manufacturers of the vaping industry.  As the “Official Vape of the Buffalo Chip Music Festival,” Madvapes will be featuring a special 75th Anniversary limited edition vaping hardware, including the Deviate and the all-new Patriot Vapor e-liquid.
