IronWorks magazine announced the winners of its 2012 Innovation Awards, the ‘Stempys,’ and included on the list are our friends at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip for their new CrossRoads Venue.
IronWorks magazine recently announced the winners of its 2012 IronWorks Innovation Awards. The awards, also known as the “Stempys” in honor of the magazine’s founding editor Dennis Stemp, have been presented since 2003 specifically to recognize leadership and positive momentum in the motorcycle industry. The 2012 IronWorks Innovation Awards will be presented at the V-Twin Expo in Cincinnati, Ohio, Feb. 2-3, 2013.
“The IW Innovation Awards honor efforts that represent a fresh, forward-looking approach to our industry through creative action that advances interest or fills a need,” said IronWorks Editor Marilyn Stemp. “Especially now, when ‘wait and see’ is the prevailing attitude in business, we feel it’s appropriate to identify and acknowledge those companies and individuals who exhibit the courage to keep motorcycling not just viable but thriving.”
Five awards are being conferred this year. The 2012 winners are:
Roland Sands Designs for their Clarity Line.
Lonnie Isam for the Motorcycle Cannonball Endurance Run.
Performance Machine for their relentless product development and unparalleled industry support.
Vance & Hines for their Shortshots and Stainless Hi-Output lines and steadfast support of racing.
The Sturgis Buffalo Chip for their CrossRoads Venue.
Congratulations to the winners!
