    I have already sent a nomination in for 2015 and have received a e-mail confirming they got it.
    If you think someone deserves to me in the Sturgis Hall of Fame I hope you will nominate them.

    Does the Sturgis Hall of Fame publish the nominees?
    If not, why not?
    What are the qualifications to be considered a Freedom Fighter within the Hall of Fame?
    Are donations to the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum necessary to getting a nomination approved?
    Is being an attorney for motorcyclists or a owner of a motorcycle industry affiliated business, a qualification for approval to the nomination to Hall of Fame status?

    Le-me try this once more.

    One should at lest propose Stan Dishong as a candidate.

    “…One of his many innovations was the first racing slick on a drag bike. He had the Pope Tire co. vulcanize a flat strip of rubber onto the rear tire of his Indian in July 1953….”

    Long before Alan made a OHC Harley Stan was winning races whit his 96″ OHC Pan Head.

    I would like to nominate Amy Irene White as a freedom fighter! Nobody has worked harder than she for America, and the American biker! She not only promotes freedom on her radio show, but has made numerous trips to Washington DC in spite of debilitating health problems. She is, indeed, a true American patriot and freedom fighter!!
