According to the Rapid City Journal article, the groups, including Rapid City Economic Development Partnership and the Rushmore Region Alliance, tout having an association to the Sturgis Rally as being a selling point in the indusry as well as the state's business-friendly taxes and regulations being a draw as well. Several motorcycle businesses have relocated to the area, bringing job opportunities with them, while others are looking into doing the same.
