"FULL THROTTLE SALOON" MOVES TO DESTINATION AMERICA: NEW EPISODES REV UP WITH ALL-NEW ANTICS

-Owner Michael Ballard to Address Future of the World's Largest Bike Bar Following Devastating Fire that Leveled the Building in September 2015-

(Silver Spring, Md.) After months of speculation, FULL THROTTLE SALOON is parking on a new network this winter with four all-new episodes beginning Tuesday, December 1 at 10/9c on Destination America. The premiere comes after the "World's Largest Biker Bar" tragically burned down in September 2015 due to an electrical fire. At the end of the four-episode run, the team will finally reveal whether the bar will be rebuilt.

Every year, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally brings hundreds of thousands of bikers to the Black Hills of South Dakota and the Full Throttle Saloon offers them an experience that cannot be matched. The 32-acre property boasts multiple bars, beautiful bartenders, extreme entertainment, headlining musical acts and a healthy dose of fun, rebellion and mayhem.

FULL THROTTLE SALOON revolves around three main characters: Michael Ballard, the owner and operator of the Full Throttle Saloon; his wife and marketing director, Angie Ballard; and entertainment director / resident rock star as the front man of Jackyl, Jesse James Dupree. Since the Full Throttle Saloon is only open during the Sturgis Rally, Ballard has to make all of his money for the year in 10 short days, during which cameras capture the crazy biker carnival with a rare peek behind the scenes of a one-of-a-kind business.

The new episodes were filmed over the course of two seasons at the Sturgis rally, in 2014 and 2015. Not only will they address the bar's future after the fire, but they will also see the on-air debut of the Ballards' baby daughter. Viewers were left hanging in 2013, when Michael and Angie were expecting their first child. Now, watch them juggle the challenges of running the "World's Largest Biker Bar" as parents.

2015 also marked the 75th anniversary of the Sturgis rally, bringing even more antics to the already high-energy Full Throttle experience. New episodes will unveil the death-defying stunts performed by Dupree during his annual Jackyl show at the bar. Tune in to see how he pulled off his grand entrance!

Episodes include:

And Baby Makes Three Premieres Tuesday, December 1 at 10/9c Both Michael and Angie Ballard struggle with running the Full Throttle Saloon and parenting their 4-month old daughter. Michael also has to deal with business being slow (in the year before the huge 75th anniversary of Rally) and increasingly aggressive competition from another bar across the street. A controversial stunt practice run puts a wedge between Michael and Jesse.

Crime and Punishment Premieres Tuesday, December 8 at 10/9c Michael and Jesse mend their relationship and come up with a unique way to introduce Baby Emilly to the patrons of the Full Throttle Saloon but, in doing so, they incur the wrath of Momma Angie. Jesse's Jackyl Night concert helps save a slow season and plans begin in earnest for the 75th anniversary.

Rally Around the Family - The 75th Anniversary Premieres Tuesday, December 15 at 10/9c It's the 75th anniversary of the Sturgis motorcycle rally, Full Throttle Saloon witnesses record crowds and problems. Michael contemplates selling Full Throttle and gets a call that changes everything.

Full Throttle Fire: Rise from the Ashes Premieres Tuesday, December 22 at 10/9c After the fire that burnt the Full Throttle Saloon to the ground in September 2015, Michael, Angie, and Jesse gather for a "round table discussion" about what the Full Throttle has meant to them and their extended family over the years. They discuss the fire that changed their lives and Michael announces whether or not he plans to rebuild the Full Throttle Saloon.
