If you’ve ever been to the Sturgis Rally, you’ve most likely been to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip too. The 600-acre site east of Sturgis’ Main Street started as a campground on a cow pasture in 1981 with room for bikers, a couple of tents, and a Porta Potti. But over the decades, it’s grown into a sprawling event space with asphalt roads, cabins, electricity, and restaurants where many riders come back to roost for the 10-day rally. And why wouldn’t they? The Sturgis Buffalo Chip now plays host to many of the must-see and most-talked-about events during the rally, including bike shows, racing, and even midget bowling. It’s also become known for its string of world-class concerts, billing itself as the Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling.
And it looks like the Chip wants to keep that energy going even during the holiday season; for 2019, one of the acts has been announced, and it’s Grammy Award winner Keith Urban. Urban has autographed a guitar in honor of his upcoming performance at the Chip on Saturday, August 3, 2019, and he’s offered it up as a prize for the Buffalo Chip’s Rock The Holidays Sweepstakes. So one lucky fan will be able to win Urban’s one-of-a-kind axe, along with a $250 Hot Leathers shopping spree, just in time for the holidays.
The Keith Urban Player electric guitar is packed with stylish details and appointments, and comes ready to rock, in a classy Brazilian Burst finish. This beauty is museum-quality and is sure to become a sought-after collectible, so it’s a good thing it comes with its own matching gig bag for protection (and so the winner can rock out anywhere!). “This is the chance for someone to own a guitar signed by one of the biggest artists of our time,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s president. “Keith Urban has 24 No. 1 hits!”
Fans can enter to win that whole cool prize package—which, don’t forget, includes a $250 Hot Leathers shopping spree—at rocktheholiday.com.
Registration closes Friday, December 7, 2018, at 5 p.m. MST. The winner will be announced December 10. More information about the sweepstakes is available at rocktheholiday.com.
