Texas and Gruene Harley-Davidson will welcome the Hooligan Dirt Dash presented by Law Tigers with racers representing Suicide Machine Company, The Speed Merchant, Rusty Butcher, Unknown Industries, Broken Homme and others as they battle it out until the track is left with the fastest of the fast - so don’t blink or you might just miss the fun.

“I can’t wait for Gruene Harley-Davidson’s 10th Anniversary Party.” said Hooligan Racer Alfonso “Fonz” Vasquez

UNKNOWN Industries took the lead with customization of the new 2016 Low Rider so is far from stock with parts and accessories from Biltwell, Arlen Ness, Big Al’s Cycles, K&N, The Speed Merchant, San Diego Customs, Bassani as well as custom paint from Taylor Schultz of Schultz Designz. The A-team from Gruene Harley-Davidson painstakingly disassembled the brand-new Low Rider and installed a myriad of aftermarket hop-up parts from the aforementioned companies as well as treated a ton of OEM parts to loving from the local powder coater, Powder Coat Customs.

Buy as many as you like, you don't have to be present to win, at 6pm after the Hooligan Dirt Dash has commenced and the winners have been awarded their trophies one lucky guy or girl’s name will be pulled out of the hat. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit the non-profit organization, For the Love of Kids and Harleys.

While you mustn’t be present to win, there’s a bunch of fun taking place at Gruene Harley-Davidson next Saturday. Local food trucks will be on site with food for purchase and cold beer from Budweiser, Bud Light, Miller Lite, Lone Star and more will be available. The ride in Chopper, Dyna, and FXR bike show registration is open from 11am to 2pm. Own one of these models? Ride it in and win!

At 12:30pm, catch the Unknown Industries guys doing what they do best: wheelies, burn-outs and other stuff you shouldn’t be able to do on a full sized Harley. After that, catch a skateboard demo and then make your way to the track to watch the Hooligans practice as the guys bang bars in preparation for their races later in the afternoon. In addition to the music DJ Nick Medina will pumping throughout the day, racing and other activities at the Gruene Harley-Davidson 10th Anniversary Party you will find motorcycle professionals, builders, parts & accessories manufacturers, riding gear creators and more such as Hot Bike Magazine, Giddy Up, Austin Speed Shop, Simpson, Con Safos Custom Coating, Law Tigers, Fellon Pinstriping, Biltwell, Speed Merchant, Bikers Choice, Suicide Machine Company, Rusty Butcher as well as Rockstar Energy Drink will be passing free drinks and you can check out and learn the latest from Riverfest, GNG Tactical, Kat Box, Tri-City Distributors, Vida Tees, SA Raceway, Deep Eddys, New Braunfels Music and more. After the bike show trophies and prizes are awarded the Unknown Industries guys will burn the last of their tires off.

When that’s done, it will be time to head to the track for the Hooligan Dirt Dash presented by Law Tigers for the race opening ceremony, then racers will line up who have traveled from far and near to compete in this daring dance of speed and style in the 1/8th mile oval made of dirt. The Hooligan Dirt Dash race series made it debut in Sturgis, South Dakota during the 75th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at the legendary Sturgis ½ Mile dirt track. Because it’s run “outlaw” style largely self-governed by competitors; no official sanctioning body; very few rules for classification beyond rider skill and/or engine displacement Hooligan Dirt Dash races have a grassroots vibe that makes them super popular with fans including a Kids Race, Kickstart Race and Run What You Brung race classes both with ride in registration. The Kickstart Race and Run What You Brung classes have Free Registration between the hours of 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Sign up at the Race Registration tent; first come, first serve. More info at

As the racing action comes to a close the rider who took the checkered flag will take the podium, along with the 1st and 2nd place losers to receive their trophies. As soon as they clear out, we’ll find out who the real winner is! MC Jack Schit will pull the winning name to find out and announce who the lucky new owner of the Gruene Harley-Davidson and UNKNOWN Industries Custom Dyna Low Rider will be. Go to for your chance to win the bike.

After the racing closes out the party, you can ride home or come across the street to the official after party at Billy’s Icehouse.
