Rock and race fans with severe heart conditions warned to seek doctor’s approval before attending this night of intense action, thrilling moto-combat and high-energy rock!

Sturgis, SD – Driving adrenaline levels to the danger zone, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip is bringing one of the top names in alternative hard rock to top off a night of intense American Flat Track moto-combat. Theory of a Deadman will be taking the Wolfman Jack Stage immediately following the Buffalo Chip TT American Flat Track Grand National Championship races presented by Indian Motorcycle on Sunday, Aug. 5, 2018. This is set to be a really big show, incorporating groundbreaking visual effects and familiar favorites to the setlist of Theory’s own no. 1 hits.

“The Chip’s race fans deserve a band with enough energy to match some of the most electrifying races on the planet, and we have definitely found it with Theory,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President. “Sunday night is for adrenaline junkies, those looking for the hottest ticket of the rally. If you want to go home with a memory you’ll be telling your grandchildren someday, this is a night at the Chip you don’t want to miss.”
