DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 19, 2018) – There’s nothing like the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and there’s nothing quite like the Harley-Davidson Black Hills Half-Mile presented by Law Tigers Motorcycle Lawyers at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, SD on Tuesday, August 7.


Especially when you throw in a Monday night Kick-Off Party and Bike Night at Black Hills Harley-Davidson on the evening of August 6.


Known as the ‘fastest half-mile’ on the circuit, Black Hills Speedway – in action since the 1950s – always provides plenty of intense, ‘bar-bangin’ racing. Tickets, including general admission and two special packages (Turn-4 VIP and a Party Bus from the Glencoe Camp Resort in Sturgis), are available now but selling fast, so get yours while you can.


Of course, no ticket is necessary for the Monday night Kick-Off Party/Bike Night at Black Hills Harley-Davidson (5:00 pm to 8:00 pm), located just a few miles Northwest of the Speedway. The party is free, and there are saddlebags full of cool stuff to do and see, including:

  • Autograph signings with the American Flat Track stars
  • Harley Hooligans meet-’n-greet plus bike displays
  • Over 100 moto-oriented vendors in attendance
  • Cool product and ticket giveaways
  • Product and accessory vendors galore
  • Live Music
  • A fantastic array of unique food and drink vendors
  • Jumbotron featuring past AFT racing action from Black Hills Speedway

In fact, the party will be happening all weekend at Black Hills H-D, including the aforementioned Jumbotron broadcasting AFT nail-biter racing action. All are invited to come check out the fun.


Ticket options: General admission tickets are $35 ($45 day of race). Turn-4 VIP tickets offer an up-close-and-personal view of the racing for $125. Included is a light dinner with lemonade, ice tea and water, plus complimentary beer and wine between 5:30 pm and 8:30 pm.


Want to relax and not worry about riding to and from the race? Opt for the exclusive Glencoe Camp Resort Party Bus Ticket, which includes either a General Admission ($70) or Turn 4 VIP ($160) ticket and whisks you to and from the race in air-conditioned bus comfort from the Glencoe Camp Resort in Sturgis (beer and other refreshments are included). Just park at the camp, enjoy the ride and the racing, and get dropped off at the Resort later that evening. No fuss, no muss. Get yours at:


“This is the one of the best weeks of motorcycling anywhere,” says Black Hills Harley-Davidson General Manager Terry Rymer, “and our kickoff party will reflect that.” Black Hills Harley-Davidson is an official Harley-Davidson Rally Stop during the 10-day event, so be sure to stop by and say hi to Rymer and crew … they are big supporters of American Flat Track and local riders.


With intense American Flat Track racing action, a Monday-night Kick-Off party and superb ticket options available, the Black Hills Half-Mile – the fastest Half-Mile on the circuit – is an absolute must-see during the Sturgis Rally. Don’t miss it!
