STURGIS, S.D. (AP) - In a story April 20 about the rebuilding of a Sturgis bar that burned down, The Associated Press erroneously reported that owner Michael Ballard plans to rename the bar when it reopens at a nearby campground. The Full Throttle Saloon will keep its name when it reopens.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Full Throttle owner building new bar in new Sturgis spot

The owner of the Full Throttle Saloon lost to fire is planning to rebuild in a new location

STURGIS, S.D. (AP) - The owner of the Full Throttle Saloon lost to fire is planning to rebuild in a new location.

KEVN television reports (https://bit.ly/1WG9yyd ) that Michael Ballard will build the new Full Throttle five miles down the road in a spot formerly known as the Broken Spoke Campground. The campground will now be known as The Pappy Hoel Campground.

The new name honors the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally founder. It will be a 600-acre attraction, where RVs and campers will be allowed for the first time in the saloon’s history.

The Full Throttle Saloon burned to the ground in an overnight fire in September.
