Dodge City Might Restart 1914 Motorcycle Race
05/28/2013

Motorcycle enthusiasts in Dodge City are hoping to rev up a 100-year-old tradition next year.

The Dodge City 300 motorcycle race drew 17,000 people to Dodge City in 1914 and more than 20,000 in 1921. Dodge City historian Roger Burnett says the race was the premier event of motorcycle racing at the time.

The Dodge City motorcycle community is organizing a weeklong event next July to mark the race's 100th anniversary. It will include motorcycle displays music, fireworks and -- of course -- motorcycle races.

The organizers are working to raise funds, with plans to bring in businesses like Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle, both of which were involved in the original races. Main Street Dodge City and area businesses are also supporting the event.
