Sturgis: Countdown to Buffalo Chip


2011 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

The countdown to the 2011 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at the Legendary Buffalo Chip is on and the Chip never stops adding more exciting events, personalities, bands, performances and attractions.

“The Best Party Anywhere” just keeps getting better and better.

Carrying on the tradition of old school burnouts, NICK LEE is blowing tires and smokin’ the crowds on his World Burnout Tour, of which the Buffalo Chip is thrilled to be a major stop.

Lee has gained notoriety as the champion in the infamous burnout pits around the US. His high-energy and free-standing burnouts have earned him trophies, cash, and the undisputed nickname “The Burnout King.”

Lee is the undeniable pop culture and high-octane zeitgeist of this motor sport with his canonized style of motorcycle burnouts. His stage presence and ability to play to the crowds is absolutely phenomenal. He is noted for doing the longest motorcycle burnouts in history and actually starting the bikes on fire!

Lingerie for Life is an event in which lovely ladies wear 27 unique, one-of-a-kind bras to be auctioned with proceeds going to The American Cancer Society. The beautiful Budweiser Roadhouse bartenders will model the bras throughout the night and one will be auctioned at 8:15 p.m. and two more at 10 p.m. nightly. The bras will be delivered immediately after a bidder wins.

For those interested in VIP service and transport, the Chip has arranged for access to V.I.P. Rally Transport. Getting to the Sturgis Rally at the Buffalo Chip couldn’t be easier than when you call V.I.P Rally Transport, who will arrange exclusive private jet transportation for individual parties, corporations or their clients right to the Black Hill airport of your choice. V.I.P.’s sole objective is to maximize your rally time. V.I.P. also offers shuttle services, helicopter services and late-night returns to the campground with the utmost confidentiality, discretion and anonymity.

The Triple Threat Derby Girls present Rolling Sturgis. Roller Derby players from around the world will converge in this nine day, star-studded knock-down! Front and center at the Chip’s west entrance, at 6 pm nightly, treat yourself to the all-female Roller Derby Revival! Finally making its way to Sturgis, are sexy athletes in the full-contact, action-packed sport of flat-track Roller Derby.
