AMA Racing officials to host community forum

STURGIS, S.D. – Representatives from A.M.A. Pro Racing announced Monday they will be holding community forum for citizens of Sturgis to ask questions about a controversial race that will be in front of Sturgis voters next week.
The race is scheduled for the last day of the rally, August 11th, and the contract between the city and A.M.A. will be on next week’s municipal election ballot after petitions were turned in and accepted to send the matter to a vote.
The community forum will take place from 5-6:00 p.m.  Thursday, April 4 at the Commission Meeting Room on the second floor of the Erskine Office Building in Sturgis.
“We invite everyone in the community to come and learn more about the race,” said Gene Crouch, CEO of AMA Pro Racing.
“We want to work with the community to make sure we answer questions people may have and address any concerns.”
AMA Pro staff have been in Sturgis for the past several days meeting with residents to explain how the event could financially benefit the community.
The race, known officially as the “Spirit of Sturgis TT”, would be featured on national television. The racetrack would run down Main and Sherman streets with safety barriers along the entire track.
“The Spirit of Sturgis TT is not just a race; it’s a tribute to the enduring legacy of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, blending tradition with innovation,” said Couch.
“Racing through the storied streets of Sturgis promises a spectacular new chapter in the city’s rich history in motorcycle racing, while offering an unparalleled experience for fans and competitors.”
On next week’s ballot, a ‘YES’ vote would nullify the host services agreement and a ‘NO’ vote would accept it, allowing the race to take place.
