X Games Announces Minneapolis 2019 Qualifiers to Open with Harley-Davidson Hooligan Race

Hooligan Qualifier Moving to June 20 in Industry Hills, California

After a successful debut as part of the event in Boise in 2018, the Harley-Davidson Hooligan Racing qualifier will move to a standalone event on Thursday, June 20 in Industry Hills, California. The Hooligan qualifying race will be a class in Thursday night’s Born-Free Stampede, which is a preview to the weekend’s custom motorcycle show.

Similar to Harley Hooligan Racing at X Games Minneapolis, the Stampede event will take place on a flat track course at Industry Racing at Industry Hills Expo Center. More than 100 riders from across the country will be invited, spanning all ability levels. The top 48 qualifiers will receive an invite to X Games Minneapolis 2019. The recap show will air July 27 as part of the World to X Games programming on ABC.

Harley Hooligan racing is a grassroots, amateur-focused event to provide riders accessible opportunities to compete in flat track. Participation in the sport is easily attainable for the average motorcycle enthusiast with its focus on using production-based, minimally modified, and garage-built Harley-Davidson Sportster and Street 750 motorcycles. Harley Hooligan racing emphasizes participation over competition, provides an accessible entry point to motorcycle racing, and gives even novice racers the chance to experience the thrill of flat track racing.
