AFT to Introduce Medical Response Team in 2020
Full-time series doctor to step up rider safety for 2020.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 7, 2020) - As part of its enhanced safety efforts for 2020, American Flat Track proudly announced today the introduction of the AFT Medical Response Team (MRT), an expert team of athlete medical professionals that will be present at all rounds of the 2020 race season.

 
A crucial part of AFT's commitment to making an inherently hazardous sport safer than it has ever been, The AFT Medical Response team will provide critical on-site medical care to competitors at no cost to its recipients. AFT has contracted Dr. Ray Rossi, an FIM-certified doctor with decades of experience in motorcycle racing, to provide a group of highly-trained, specialized physicians to serve as a rapid-response team. A rapid-response UTV - provided by American Honda - will ensure that the MRT staff, equipped with the proper medical equipment, will lead the on-track response to incidents where medical aid may be needed.
 
A continuation of its dedication to advancing the overall safety of the sport, AFT has designed the MRT as a means of providing consistent, personalized care for its athletes. Additionally, first responders will be trained on the correct methods for providing care specific to motorcycle-related incidents including helmet removal, advanced airway management and concussion evaluation. 
 
“The introduction of the Medical Response Team is the latest initiative in our ongoing strategy to raise the bar for safety in our sport,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. ”Dr. Rossi and his team act as both advisors to the Series and as first responders to incidents at our AFT National race events. We are very grateful to them and happy to bring this new level of infrastructure and competitor care to American Flat Track in 2020.”
 
“Safety is our number one priority and the addition of Dr. Rossi and his team will bolster the medical response capability at American Flat Track events," said Joey Mancari, AFT’s Chief Competition Officer. "The doctors on the Medical Response Team bring decades of expertise to the immediate on-track response team and will provide key guidance to the local emergency medical crews at our events."
 
American Flat Track will kick off its 2020 season with the first-ever Volusia Half-Mile presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys doubleheader event at Volusia Speedway Park on Friday, July 17 and Saturday, July 18. Tickets for the back-to-back race action start at just $25 and children 12 and under are admitted for free. Availability is limited, so get yours before they run out at www.americanflattrack.com.

2020 Lima Half-Mile Postponed

 
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 2, 2020) - Due to COVID-19 regulations in the areas surrounding Allen County Fairgrounds in Lima, OH, the promoters of the Lima Half-Mile have had to postpone its doubleheader race dates scheduled for Friday, July 31 and Saturday, August 1, 2020.
 
American Flat Track is working closely with the promoter, Allen County Fairgrounds and the local health officials to help secure a date that will accommodate its current schedule and provide the best experience for its fans, competitors and staff.
 
Fans who have requested Friday passes have not been charged and will not be charged by the promoter. The promoter of the event is offering fans who hold Saturday (June 27 or August 1) tickets the option to either request a refund or redeem their advance-purchased tickets for the rescheduled event. All ticket-holders will be contacted directly by the Lima Half-Mile promoter.
 
An announcement regarding the updated Lima Half-Mile race dates will be made in the coming weeks.

Sideburn Magazine Named The Official Magazine of American Flat Track 

Sideburn to be sold at Official AFT Merchandise locations

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 24, 2020)American Flat Track proudly announces a new partnership with UK-based publication Sideburn Magazine naming it the Official Magazine of American Flat Track for 2020.

 

Known primarily for its eye-catching artwork and in-depth coverage of all things flat track, Sideburn has become renowned in the community as the go-to resource for print content.

 

As part of its partnership with AFT, the latest issue of Sideburn will now be available for purchase at the Official AFT Merchandise tent at AFT events. 

 

Fans of Sideburn and AFT can look forward to more AFT content within Sideburn's coverage both in print and on its social media channels.

 

"Partnering with AFT is not only an honor for us as huge race fans, but also a great way of distributing our magazine directly to those people who love the sport as much as we do," said Gary Inman, Editor of Sideburn. "As the series moves around the country, it'll be available in some states for the first time in our 12-year history. We know there are plenty of people who are aware of the magazine, but this is likely to be the first opportunity they can buy it in person, instead of ordering online from overseas."

 

“Sideburn exhibits an irreverent perspective on flat track racing and the magazine has been deeply involved in the grass roots of the sport,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. ”We are happy to be able to give Sideburn some extra visibility in the USA and I’m sure that AFT fans will enjoy its content and style.”

 

Fans attending the Volusia Half-Mile presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys doubleheader are urged to stop by the Official AFT Merchandise location and grab their copy of Sideburn before supplies run out. For tickets to the Friday, July 17 and Saturday, July 18 season-opening AFT weekend, visit www.americanflattrack.com.
