“Hogslayer: The Unapproachable Legend” is the true-life story of the dual-engine Norton dragster designed, built and raced by TC Christenson and John Gregory of Sunset Motors in Kenosha, Wis.

The documentary chronicles the Sunset Motors Racing Team’s unrivaled innovation and unbridled courage as they faced unyielding challengers throughout the United States and Europe in the 1970’s to capture multiple world championships. The original Hogslayer dragster is presently on permanent exhibit at the National Motorcycle Museum in the United Kingdom.

The Slimey Crud Motorcycle Gang is best known for their Slimey Crud Run through the scenic back roads of central Wisconsin held the first Sunday of May (this year 5.6.12) and October (this year 10.7.12) every year since the early 1970s.

Annually one to three thousand motorcyclists attend this remarkable impromptu event. For more information on the Slimey Crud Run visit slimeycrudrun.com.
