Roland Sands Design is proud to bring America the “thrills and spills” of Street Bike Flat Track Racing, with the 2017 Super Hooligan National Championship Series (SHNC). We’ve selected the best events in the country to be part of the series, which aims to establish the frightening, yet rewarding craft of piloting street bikes at break-neck speeds around tracks of dirt and concrete. The riders are the stars and comprised of a unique and diverse background of every type of rider, from washed up Champions to plumbers, crusty flat trackers and roadracers as well as everyday Joes, Nine-to-Fivers, Stunt and Motocross riders, and everything in between. It’s a no-holds-barred battle to the stripe on 500 lbs. of fury. With races across the country ranging from specialty bike shows and concerts to pro American Flat Track events and beach-side racing, the diversity promises a unique experience at each event. Indian Motorcycle has generously offered up its crown jewel, the FTR750 Factory Indian Scout GNC-ready race bike as the championship prize. Dunlop Tires, Motul Oils, K&N Filters and Bell Helmets are also involved in a big way, bringing generous contingency checks to the competitors, rewarding heroic rides and top finishers. Watch Out America… this is Super Hooligan!

With its roots in Southern California motorcycle culture, today’s flat track hooligan racing category is rapidly gaining in popularity with riders of all ages and experience levels across the nation by offering the fun of motorcycle competition in a less structured environment. Combining the craft of custom motorcycles and racing the Super Hooligan rules are loose and limit the bikes to 750CC and up twins in stock frames with dirt track tires and no front brakes.
