Hall of Fame Highlight Class of 2020

Hall of Fame Highlight  Class of 2020

The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame is featuring Hall of Fame Highlights of this year's outstanding new group of inductees. Here is a glimpse at what they had to say. For the full story join us at the 2020 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony (tickets available below). Congratulations and welcome Jody Perewitz.

Jody Perewitz, Sturgis Hall of Fame, 2020

It is no surprise that Jody Perewitz is known for riding and racing motorcycles. She grew up with motorcycles. It has become second nature for her; she eats, sleeps and breathes two wheels. As a child, her family vacations were always based around motorcycles. It's all her family does.

Today Jody is one of the most recognizable women in the motorcycle industry. Jody has paved her own way into history by becoming the first woman to ever jockey an American V-Twin powered motorcycle into the record books, at well over 200 MPH. She currently holds 16 land speed records, one of which is a world record.

When asked what it means to be inducted into the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame, Jody responded, "It is truly an honor to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. I hope to bring so much more to the Museum and Hall of Fame."
