The 2014 American Victory Rally scheduled for August has been canceled due to “extensive transformation of manufacturing lines at the company’s Spirit Lake, Iowa, facility,” Polaris Industries said Thursday.

The Rally has been a staple event for Victory owners for the past 11 years.

“All of us at Victory are disappointed that we are unable to host the rally this year as we know our riders are passionate about their bikes and the opportunity to connect with each other, the Spirit Lake community and Victory employees at the annual rally,” said Marcy Bosch, committee chair, American Victory Rally.

“We will be transforming our manufacturing lines this summer to keep up with the demands fueled by the continued enthusiasm for Victory bikes and our other products, which means we won’t be able to free up the facilities and dedicate the resources necessary to support a quality rally. We are grateful to our riders and the Spirit Lake community for their continued support and passion for the Victory brand.”

Announced in 2012, the $22.5 million expansion of the 565,000-square-foot facility should be completed by summer’s end.

As the expansion continues, Victory says “rally attendees are encouraged to talk to their local dealers for information on other rallies or Victory events that might be happening in their area.”
