The impetus behind creating Hog Daze is the Cornfield Classic. This is an International Championship Motorcycle Race that took place in Marion, Indiana in the years 1919 & 1920. Many motorcycle racing greats competed in these races and history was made each year.
The most notable story to come out of the Cornfield Classic is the one about Harley Davidson rider, Ray Weishaar and his pet pig. After Ray won the 1920 race he took a victory lap with his piglet riding along. Everyone loved it. His teammates began calling themselves the Hog Boys. Photos of Ray and his pig on a Harley Davidson motorcycle were printed and a pop culture icon was created. It was this event that dubbed Harley Davidson motorcycles “hogs”.
For more than one decade, the Hog Daze Motorcycle Rally has been sharing Marion’s heritage story as the Home of the Hog. The rally unites residents that want to make an impact in Grant County through its rich motorcycle history. Residents and event organizers welcome thousands of riders and families and enjoy sharing a unique piece of Grant County’s past.
Throughout the third weekend in August, this commemorative motorcycle event will be back at the Grant County Fairgrounds, on SR 18, approximately 4 miles (6.44 km) west of I-69. There will be no admission fee to enter. Camping and RV spaces with electricity and water hook-ups are available for rent.
