Tesla Rally this weekend


Over 60 Teslas are making a road trip to Custer May 17.

The Custer Area Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the Sound of Silence Tesla Road Trip. This event is the sixth annual Tesla Road Trip Rally and still the only one of its kind in the United States. 

The Custer Area Chamber of Commerce has worked with local businesses and even caught the attention of Tesla itself to help get charging stations in Custer for these cars. The Custer Area Chamber of Commerce has invited Tesla owners to come explore the drives the Southern Black Hills has to offer.

The cars will be on display for viewing and visitors can talk with the car owners Friday evening, May 17 from 5-7 p.m. next to Mt. Rushmore Brewing Company.  The Custer Area Chamber of Commerce as well as local businesses will host a social mixer at the Mt. Rushmore Brewing Co. Event Center at the same time to welcome the Teslas. The public is invited to attend.  

Custer previously had 22 charging stations throughout town including at the Chamber of Commerce.  With the addition of eight super chargers located behind Lynn’s Dakotamart, Custer now has 30 charging stations—all paid for by Tesla.
