Taking root in 1988, the internationally touring Superbike World Championship returns to Utah to give Westerners a taste of freedom through speed. It’s better than playing Superbike video games or dropping cash and buying a bike.

Its race-tuned bullet bikes—from Yamaha, Ducati, BMW and others—travel at speeds up to 200 mph as drivers seemingly hover parallel to the ground, dashing around corners while vying for a win, season-charted points and bragging rights.

And, what’s a race without hot dogs and music? Not one in America. Kicking off the weekend’s festivities May 29, three classic-rock legends—Foreigner, Styx and Kansas—will bring karaoke favorites to life, concluding with a fireworks display.
