After the Storm, Riding to the Belle Fourche Drags, SD. 1980. Photo ©1980 Michael Lichter In 1979, while there were hill climbs and flat track racing, there was no drag strip in Sturgis. To see Pete Hill race his Knuckle, you had to ride to Belle Fourche. It was questionable whether there would be racing as this group of Boulder bikers left Sturgis’ City Park campground but halfway to the track, the skies began to clear. A rainbow appeared just as the sun made the wet pavement and prairie grasses glow. Free spirits crossing the “Great West”.
