STURGIS - Motorcycle daredevil "Kaptain" Robbie Knievel will jump over 100 Harley-Davidson motorcycles at the Buffalo Chip Campground on Wednesday, Aug. 6, to mark the 100th anniversary of the Harley-Davidson company.

"I'm really looking forward to this jump with a full-blown pyrotechnics show," Knievel said in a Buffalo Chip news release.

Knievel made motorcycle history in August 2000 when he jumped his motorcycle through the Buffalo Chip's stage. The stunt was captured by the Travel Channel and was part of the cable channel's 2000 documentary "Sturgis: The Great Ride." The documentary has been aired more than 120 times.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Children's Craniofacial Association (CCA, Cher's kids). Donations made to CCA will qualify Harley owners to have their bike included in the jump.

The Buffalo Chip also announced Friday that it is adding three more bands to its Sunday, Aug. 3, concert lineup, during the annual Sturgis motorcycle rally.

In addition to headliner 3 Doors Down, the concert also will feature Seether, Our Lady Peace and Shinedown.

Seether, a South African band, is now getting air play in the United States with its debut album, "Disclaimer."

Our Lady Peace's fifth album, "Gravity," was released in 2002.

Shinedown's first single, "Fly From The Inside," on Atlantic Records, is moving up the charts, according to the Buffalo Chip news release. Shinedown will have its debut CD in stores on July 15.
