AMA Supermoto Racing At Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Moto Stampede

This coming august, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip will become the epicenter of rally racing. AMA Supermoto, a high-energy race hybrid, will bring Sturgis Buffalo Chip® campers face to face with the ultimate “through-the-streets” style racing on Friday, Aug. 11 and Saturday, Aug. 12. Spectators watching in both the amphitheater and at surrounding campsites will be able to get an up-close view of all the action as AMA Supermoto competitors take their battle through the Chip’s amphitheater and around some of the surrounding streets in the campground prior to the night’s concert performances as part of the Chip’s Moto Stampede.

Supermoto, a sport that grew from the TV series “Superbikers,” is a cross-discipline event in which road racers, dirt trackers and moto crossers compete on a unique track that combines pavement and dirt built for jumps, high speeds and back-it-in sliding turn maneuvers. “The AMA Supermoto racers will be blasting right through the campground,” said Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “The unique nature of the track will allow people to see the action up close and possibly without even leaving their campsite.” See the Series And Events schedule after the jump.

To date the 2017 Buffalo Chip’s Moto Stampede schedule includes:

Friday, Aug. 4 Dirt Riot Off-road Trials
Saturday, Aug. 5 Dirt Riot Off-road Racing
Sunday, Aug. 6 AMA Pro Racing sanctioned American Flat Track Buffalo Chip TT presented by Indian Motorcycle
Wednesday, Aug. 9 Roland Sands Design’s Super Hooligan Races presented by Indian Motorcycle
Wednesday, Aug. 9 Street Drag Invitational with Crazy John
Thursday, Aug. 10 Doug Danger’s World Record Rattlesnake Jump on Evel Knievel’s 1972 Harley-Davidson XR750

    Supermoto is GREAT racing. It’s done on dirt track and pavement (as Fuji says, wrong photo), a “fabricated” track, sometimes with jumps using large displacement singles. This with the TT race AMA promises for Sturgis should make it a great racing event. Take a break from oggling bikes and babes on the street and head over to the races!

    Probably because in the states, what seems to interest the majority of the “motorcyclists” appears to be the “personality enhancement” aspect that you see down town Stergis…. 🙁
