The event kicks off a full day of Buffalo Chip Moto Stampede events on Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019, followed by the RSD Super Hooligan Races and a headlining performances from Snoop Dogg and Theory of a Deadman at The Best Party Anywhere! 

The Buffalo Chip Street Drag Invitational pairs the untamed spirit of biker mayhem that was commonplace in Sturgis City Park during the ‘70s with the jaw-dropping power leading the motorcycling industry today.

One glance at the starting line will give you a simultaneous glance into the past and future of motorcycling. Don’t blink though, because once the flag drops, the blur of gorgeous custom paint and tire smoke will have flashed by your eyes and blown past the finish line under the steel bridge

When the mayor of Sturgis wanted to “get the riff raff out of town” back in the early ‘80s, hardcore racers like Crazy John Markwald were forced to move this grassroots event elsewhere.

After years of drawing huge crowds in Sundance, WY and Vale, SD, these races again outgrew their limitations and came full circle in 2016, making the Sturgis Buffalo Chip their home.

And with all great places to watch the races from inside the Chip’s amphitheater, there really is no better place for these iconic races to take place.

Raise the hair on your neck in the next chapter of these legendary events. They have become a cornerstone of motorcycling culture, embodying much of what it means to be a biker.
