Super Hooligan is a predominantly amateur series and that opens it up to all kinds of competitors.

Unlike more traditional American flat-track racing, Super Hooligan takes place on a lightly banked eighth- or tenth-mile oval.

Most of the races take place on dirt. But at least one in San Pedro, California takes place on pavement.

Hooligan bikes, like flat-track bikes, run with no front brakes.
