It took less than 2 weeks before Nashville Bike Week was booted from another venue.
NBW announced it had secured the American Rebel Mud Park in Waynesboro Tennesse. A local TV News channel spoke with the owner at the time, who said he’s a lifelong biker and hoped to make sure the event goes on.
But, after talking with his lawyer, as well as state and local officials, Stan Chiras, owner of the venue said he's backing out, but is offering his venue for anyone who paid for the event to come and stay at no charge.
He issued this statement.
After discussions with State and local officials, and consulting with legal counsel, American Rebel Off Road Park is withdrawing as a venue for Nashville Bike Week and Superflow Entertainment.
It became obvious that with the time remaining until the event date, there is no way to meet the promises made by Superflow Entertainment to its customers. There was also no feasible way to meet the statutory guidelines required by the State of Tennessee for permitting an event of this size.
When I entered into discussion with Nashville Bike Week my intent was to contribute to saving this event for the over 4,000 fellow bikers who had already paid in advance for this event. I deeply regret this could not work out.
I would like to extend an invitation to anyone who paid for this event to come to Tennessee and enjoy our hospitality and all that our county and State has to offer. You’re welcome to come and stay here at no charge.
