There was $5k up for grabs for the Pro Singles guys on 450s. Racer #23 James Monaco pulled the holeshot to be passed by #132 Jesse Janisch who battled it out for 1st the entire time. Eventually it was #62 Dan Bromley who won, with #132 Janisch in second and #23 Monaco in third. There were a handful of vintage tank-shift class entries, and only a few Lady Hooligans entered, so the two classes were combined into one race. Stephaine Pietz, number 57, pulled the holeshot and won and then pulled right from the track to race the Amateur Hooligan Class. Despite her efforts or skill, number 7 Dawson Shieffer on Carey Hart’s Indian Scout Sixty took the lead and hung on for the Hooligan amateur main event win his first time racing a hooligan Indian Scout.
In the "Run What Ya’ Brung" class there was everything from Dyna's, 450's, boonie bikes, stunt riders from every coast doing wheelies and a Grom with its turn signal on. No one ever really cares who finishes first in this class, instead it's all about letting loose and pushing the limits of crazy. In the heat race there was a wreck out of the gate but that didn't slow down racer number 666 who kept the lead standing up in the turns and then won but crashed on a slow rider right after passing the checkered flag. A few of the riders went rouge and rode around one last time doing stunts for the crowd. After the races, Roland Sands and Carey Hart each gave away custom-built Indian Scout Sixty hooligan race bikes on the main stage. . The bikes were raced in the Superhooligan races and given away the same day to a couple of lucky guys that entered the giveaway drawing online. All of this is crazy but it was just the opening act to the master of the insane ceremonies, Ozzy Osbourne, who rocked the stage until midnight. Only in Sturgis can you go from bar banging to head banging and live to tell the tale. It kind of makes you wonder how they will top it next year.
