“The rally was founded on racing. The Buffalo Chip’s Moto Stampede pairs multiple days and types of races with the rally’s biggest concerts to create a series of events neither the rally nor the world has ever before seen,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President. “We intend to shake the ground with excitement and horsepower. That’s why it’s called the Moto Stampede!”
The Moto Stampede offers the industry’s most concentrated series of motorsports events:
Off-road racers in UTV, Ultra Four Car and Truck Super Mod Trail classes will tear up the award-winning track at the Buffalo Chip PowerSports Complex on Friday, Aug. 4 and Saturday, Aug. 5. Entry to the Aug. 4 time trials is free. Championships on Aug. 5 are ticketed separately from campground events and passes are $20.
AFT racing action will take place on Sunday, Aug. 6, sending the nation’s top professional racing athletes through the new Buffalo Chip TT track that winds through the center of the venue’s famous amphitheater.
