The Evolution of the Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™
July 24, 2014

The first Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™, attended by about 200 people, was held in August 1938 with 19 racers at a half mile track in Sturgis, SD. Racing was not the only thing on the agenda. The event also featured such stunts such as board wall crashes, ramp jumps and head-on collisions with an automobile. Johnny Spiegelhoff, of Milwaukee, won most of the prize money ($500 put up by four local businessmen). The event lasted for two days, and did not feature any tours.
