Daredevil attempts failed Evel Knievel stunt for Sturgis Rally

Things are revving up at the Buffalo Chip this week. A man arrived in Sturgis Tuesday morning with one goal in mind – making this Sturgis Rally a historic one.

Attempting Motorcycle daredevil extraordinaire Doug Danger will attempt to accomplish a stunt never achieved by legendary rider Evel Knievel – jumping 22 cars on Evel Knievel’s Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Evel Knievel attempted this record setting jump in 1972. But Doug Danger has high hopes. "I may end up in the hospital or dead, or I may be having the biggest party Sturgis has ever seen. I hope we get the locals to come out and see this jump. We are going to rewrite the history books and show a party like Sturgis has never seen."
