STURGIS, SD – March 8, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – An explosive evening of authentic rally flat-track racing will come to a climax when Shinedown brings its hard rock spectacle to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip amphitheater on Sunday, Aug. 6. The combination of the American Flat Track Buffalo Chip TT presented by Indian Motorcycle, featuring some of the country’s biggest racing stars and the chart-topping band Shinedown will create a perfect storm of excitement and adrenaline-pumping action at the “Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling”TM.

Indian Motorcycle will return to the dirt to continue its rivalry with Harley-Davidson during the Buffalo Chip TT. The war will be back on with the Indian Motorcycle Wrecking Crew, former H-D racers Brad Baker and Jared Mees and Grand National Champion Bryan Smith, challenging the Harley-Davidson Factory Flat Track Racing Team, Kenny Coolbeth Jr., Jake Johnson and Brandon Robinson. These top stars of racing will go head-to-head on the Buffalo Chip’s track on Sunday, Aug. 6.

“An American Flat Track TT course carved out of the middle of the Chip’s amphitheater not only makes for the most unique motorcycle racing on earth, but also the wildest concert warm up the world has ever seen,” said Rod Woodruff, President of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “Shinedown’s electric rock performance is the perfect choice to pair with the races. It’s going to be an impressive night of racing and rock at the Chip.”

Consistently Burning Bright
Shinedown has created a portfolio of chart-topping rock hits, some sitting at the top for several weeks. The most notable include “Save Me,” “Burning Bright,” “Second Chance,” “Bully,” “Sound of Madness,” and most recently, “Cut the Cord.” The band’s consistently powerful performance is set to keep the party rolling at the Chip long after the races.
