ndian Motorcycle and American Flat Track Renew Series Partnership for 2020

Indian Motorcycle to sponsor Buffalo Chip TT and offer generous contingency package

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 11, 2020) – After another impressive season for the three-time Manufacturer's Champion, Indian Motorcycle and American Flat Track announced today an enhanced partnership ahead of AFT's highly-anticipated 2020 season.

 

Indian Motorcycle’s commitment for 2020 is substantial and three-pronged, and includes sponsorship of three of AFT’s most-anticipated events, contingency offerings of over $350,000 and substantial support of AFT’s broadcast efforts on NBCSN.

 

Indian Motorcycle returns as the presenting sponsor of one of AFT's most-exciting events of the year: the Buffalo Chip TT presented by Indian Motorcycle in Sturgis, South Dakota on August 9.

 

Indian Motorcycle and the presence of the Indian Owner Group, dealers and machines, will be in full force at highly-awaited season opener. Attendees will once again be treated to dedicated fan areas, dealer demo rides, bike displays and giveaways. Expect more of the same at those Indian Motorcycle-sponsored events this year, plus – at all 18 rounds  – a special 10-x-20-foot Indian Motorcycle display featuring the hottest models of machinery in its fleet.

 

The Minnesota-based manufacturer will once again be an integral part and partner of AFT’s NBCSN telecast, and fans viewing at home can look forward to more on-board footage of the Wrecking Crew as they set their sights on another championship.

 

Indian Motorcycle’s contingency payment program for AFT SuperTwins presented by Vance & Hines riders is once again quite generous, and equal to the 2019 total, at over $350,000. FTR750-mounted Main Event winners will continue to receive $10,000 per event. Second-through-fifth-place finishers earn $3500, $1500, $1250 and $1000, respectively, with payouts extending through all top-ten positions.

 

Perhaps most-impressive is Indian Motorcycle's Championship bonus - $25,000 to any rider who tops the AFT SuperTwins class having competed all 18 rounds aboard an FTR750.

 

“In a short space of time Indian Motorcycle has become a formidable force in American Flat Track," said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “Their Wrecking Crew has delivered remarkable success since their debut in 2017 and with Indian’s support for the series extending to events and broadcast we are very happy to renew our partnership.”

 

After sweeping the top-three standings in 2019, the Indian Motorcycle factory team – aka the ‘Wrecking Crew’ – will reunite, with reigning AFT Twins champion Briar Bauman, his brother and winner of the inaugural Laconia Short Track, Bronson Bauman, and multi-time AFT Twins champion Jared Mees all returning for another exciting season of AFT competition.

 

“We couldn’t be more excited for the start of the 2020 season as our Wrecking Crew is on a mission to deliver yet another AFT SuperTwins Championship for Indian Motorcycle Racing,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle. “In addition to our factory team, the new SuperTwins class will see a number of talented racers competing as a privateer aboard the FTR750. With the same pool of competitors each and every race, this year will surely deliver an entirely new level of competition and excitement for the fans.” 

 

American Flat Track's 2020 season is back in action with the first-ever doubleheader - DAYTONA 200 and DAYTONA TT - at the legendary Daytona International Speedway.

DAYTONA TT To Kick Off 2020 American Flat Track Season in Epic Fashion
 

Saturday, March 14 to open with 79th running of DAYTONA 200 presented by Comoto

AYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 10, 2020) – Following months of high-profile announcements and anticipation, the 2020 American Flat Track season has finally arrived. The dawn of the AFT SuperTwins era will begin in just about the most epic fashion imaginable, as the season-opening DAYTONA TT will round out an historic doubleheader at Daytona International Speedway following 79th running of the DAYTONA 200 presented by Comoto on Saturday, March 14, in Daytona Beach, Florida.

 

Round 1 of the revamped AFT SuperTwins presented by Vance & Hines class will see three manufacturers set to do battle, each one with a legitimate shot at claiming the first checkered flag of the new campaign.

 

If anyone in the field hopes to score an upset, they’re going to have to come through the Indian Wrecking Crew to do so. The powerhouse squad -- again featuring reigning Grand National Champion Briar Bauman (No. 1 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750), living legend Jared Mees (No. 9 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) and rising star Bronson Bauman (No. 37 Indian Motorcycle/Progressive Insurance FTR750) -- has reigned supreme in each previous running of the DAYTONA TT.

 

On each occasion, that season-opening triumph set the stage for a Grand National Championship run with Bauman successfully building upon his ‘19 victory the same way Mees had in ‘17 and ‘18.

 

The Harley-Davidson / Vance & Hines Factory Flat Track Team expects to step its game up another notch in 2020 following an offseason reshuffle. The talent-laden three-rider team is headlined by former Grand National Champion Bryan Smith (No. 4 Harley-Davidson/Vance & Hines XG750R Rev X). While Smith is best known for his mastery of the Miles, it’s worth recalling that he did finish as the race runner-up in the 2017 DAYTONA TT and has been actively testing the TT-spec XG750R in preparation of the opener.

 

Meanwhile, Smith’s young teammates, Jarod Vanderkooi (No. 20 Harley-Davidson/Vance & Hines XG750R Rev X) and Dalton Gauthier (No. 79 Harley-Davidson/Vance & Hines XG750R Rev X) are acknowledged TT standouts, and there’s no question both are extremely motivated to become the first rider to take the XG750R to its maiden premier-class victory.

 

Yamaha has a TT heavyweight of its own in its corner. The hugely talented JD Beach (No. 95 Estenson Racing Yamaha MT-07 DT) was victorious in two of the four TTs last year and came within a half-second of victory at the 2018 DAYTONA TT. He looked to be among the fastest riders on track again a year ago, but he failed to make the Main after crashing in the Semi -- a fate he will no longer need to concern himself with as a result of the revised AFT SuperTwins rules.

 

AFT Singles presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys

 

The 2020 AFT Singles presented by Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys title fight looks to be a wide-open affair with the class’ three most recent champions having all graduated to AFT SuperTwins duty.

 

Even in their absence, the buzz surrounding the class is arguably greater than ever, amped up in large part due to the addition of Henry Wiles (No. 17 RMR Honda/Honda Talon CRF450R). Wiles expects to make his presence felt right from the start: he’s arguably the most accomplished Singles riders in the history of the sport, the winningest TT rider in AFT history, and a premier-class podium finisher in all three prior runnings of the DAYTONA TT.

 

Last year’s AFT Singles championship runner-up, Mikey Rush (No. 14 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F), will have his say as well. Rush was strong virtually everywhere in 2019 -- including the TTs -- and he should only increase in strength with a full season of AFT Singles experience under his belt.

 

16-year-old wunderkind Dallas Daniels (No. 32 Estenson Racing Yamaha YZ450F) should not be overlooked either. Daniels went on a tear to conclude his rookie season in ‘19, ripping off five top-fives in the season’s final seven races, including a dominant win and three podiums. Perhaps even more alarming for the competition is the fact that the DAYTONA TT track configuration should play to the strengths of the ascending joint flat track/roadracing ace.

 

The DAYTONA TT is destined to extend the glitz and glamour of the highly anticipated season opener far beyond the confines of the High Banks. A free “Bike Night with American Flat Track” will take place two days prior to the doubleheader at ONE DAYTONA on Thursday, March 12, from 6:00 p.m. ET until 8:00 p.m. ET. The celebration will feature race bikes on display, photo ops with the racers, and Q&As with riders representing both the DAYTONA TT and DAYTONA 200.

 

On race day, “Mr. Daytona” Scott Russell will serve as the DAYTONA TT Grand Marshal to highlight Opening Ceremonies that will include a jump and presentation of the red, white, and blue by the US Army Black Daggers Jump Team. Live music and vendors will feature in the UNOH FanZone, along with numerous other family-friendly Bike Week activities. For children there will be STACYC electric balance bike demos and Strider balance bike races courtesy of Mimi & Moto. Infield parking will be free for motorcycles and, for the first time, other vehicles will be welcomed to park in the infield as well for just $20.

 

Tickets for the first-ever DAYTONA 200 and DAYTONA TT doubleheader are on sale now. Watch both historic motorcycle racing events during Bike Week at DAYTONA for just $35 when you purchase an advance General Admission ticket online at tickets.americanflattrack.com. Multiple upgraded ticket options are available, including trackside seating (which has the potential to sell out), the premium Presidents Row ticket, and the $40 Paddock Admission Upgrade, which offers access to the paddock until the start of the Main Events.

 

Live coverage of the entire day’s racing activities will be available via TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold. Coverage will begin shortly after the gates open at 8:00 a.m. ET/5:00 a.m PT. The DAYTONA 200 festivities kick off with a Fan Walk, Autograph Session, and Opening Ceremonies at 9:30 a.m. ET/6:30 a.m. PT, while the legendary race is scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. ET/8:00 a.m. ET.

 

Fans with DAYTONA TT only tickets will be granted entrance starting at 1:30 p.m. ET/10:30 a.m. PT with AFT’s opening practice sessions slated to start at 4:10 p.m. ET/1:10 p.m. PT. Opening Ceremonies for the DAYTONA TT kick off at 7:50 p.m. ET/4:50 p.m. PT and the Main Event program will close out the day starting at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 a.m. PT.

 

The DAYTONA TT is the first of two American Flat Track events this season to enjoy same-day coverage on NBCSN. The feature broadcast -- enhanced by exclusive features and cutting-edge aerial drone and onboard footage -- will air that same evening, Saturday, March 14, at 11:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. PT.

 

 


 

 

Riki Rachtman Joins AFT's Live Talent Team for 2020

Scottie Deubler and Brad Baker return as announcer and expert commentator.

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 10, 2020)American Flat Track announced today an exciting addition to its at-track team of talent for the 2020 season. Riki Rachtman - longtime motorcycle enthusiast and counterculture king - will join the voices of AFT, Scottie Deubler and Brad Baker, as a member of the team on AFT's live stream and at-track entertainment.

 

Known globally for his years hosting various primetime slots on MTV and VH1, Rachtman is adamant that motorcycling and motorsports run deepest in his roots. For 17 years he has been the host of a nationally syndicated radio show titled Racing Rocks, which pairs motorsports content with some of the best of rock-and-roll music.

 

Fans may recognize Rachtman his appearance as Grand Marshal of the 2018 Black Hills Half-Mile and from various NASCAR appearances over the last two decades.

 

"I have always been a fan of flat track racing," said Rachtman. "Every time the races were in Pomona, I would ride to the track, buy my ticket and watch from the grandstands. I still remember the adrenaline I felt watching the battles between Chris Carr and Scottie Parker. This really is a combination of all of my favorite things, and I cannot wait to bring my passion to the fans."

 

Rachtman will channel his natural energy and excitement for the sport into a role as an at-track announcer and overall hype man for the events - conducting rider interviews, engaging with the audience and participating in AFT's opening ceremonies and victory lane activities.

 

The team in the booth will once again consist of Scottie Deubler, fan favorite host and play-by-play announcer, and Brad Baker, 2013 AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines Champion and expert analyst.

 

Now in his 12th consecutive season of anchoring for AFT, Deubler brings his own experience as a past American Flat Track competitor to the booth. A recognizable figure for AFT fans, his voice has become synonymous with American Flat Track.

 

Baker, who competed in American Flat Track's premier class until 2018, is an accomplished veteran of the sport and served as an integral part of the introduction and development of the Indian Motorcycle Factory Team during its launch in 2017. Baker continues to be heavily involved in the sport, making his commentary an invaluable addition to events.

 

 

Tickets for the first-ever doubleheader - DAYTONA 200 and DAYTONA TT - at the legendary Daytona International Speedway are on sale now.

STACYC Inc. and American Flat Track Strike Official Partnership

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 7, 2020) – American Flat Track announced today a newly-forged partnership with STACYC Inc. - the creator of the original and patented children's electric balance bike.

 

Since its inception in 2016, STACYC has made a significant impact in the market by introducing kids, ages 3-7, to motorcycles in a less intimidating and more engaging way. The original STACYC EDRIVE model was specifically designed as a tool to bridge the gap from push bikes to motorcycles by giving kids a bike that allows them to learn balance, throttle control and braking at their own pace, on an extremely lightweight and low-impact platform.

 

"Our Mission at STACYC is pretty simple: Create the Next Generation of Riders globally," said Mike Dettmers, Director of Business Development of STACYC Inc. "We know that providing kids an experience that they will never forget is a big part of truly capturing their attention in a world full of distractions. Allowing kids the opportunity to race on the same track as the pros becomes an experience that is burned into their memories for a lifetime. The love for two-wheels runs deep in the veins of the STACYC crew and we are working hard to pass that stoke on to the future enthusiast of our sport. American Flat Track is an amazing program and Flat Track is an epic discipline. We are excited to do our part to drive more and more kids to the excitement of motorcycles."

 

No stranger to the American Flat Track series, STACYC has become a fan favorite after multiple demo rides and exhibition races at select AFT rounds in 2019. Fans can look forward to an expansion of this partnership with STACYC demos and activations present at the 2020 DAYTONA TT, Texas Half-Mile and So-Cal Half-Mile events. The Texas HM and So-Cal HM events will also feature STACYC exhibition races - information on registration to follow.

 

"STACYC does great work of sparking a love of motorcycles in future generations of riders," said Helen Pardee, Director of Marketing of American Flat Track. "Their love of riding and our love of racing make for a natural partnership and we look forward to working with the STACYC team."

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 3, 2020) – American Flat Track proudly announced today a renewal of its partnership with Cycle Gear for 2020, naming the motorcycle industry leader The Official Motorcycle Retailer of American Flat Track.

For a third consecutive year, Cycle Gear will continue to provide fans with a means of purchasing race tickets for key events at select brick-and-mortar locations, while also initiating a widespread digital outreach campaign.

 

“Cycle Gear and AFT is a natural partnership," said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. "Our sport appeals to all kinds of motorcyclists, from Big-Twin fans to Sport Bike and Off-Road enthusiasts and Cycle Gear has catered to them all for over 40 years.”

 

As in previous years, Cycle Gear will present various promotional events leading up to select AFT rounds including bike nights, pre-race parties, and giveaway opportunities- even a chance to obtain race day tickets. American Flat Track will again be featured as a contributing sponsor at each bike night while assisting in the in-store giveaways and the promotion of the series at www.cyclegear.com.

Falken Tires Named Official Light Truck Tire of American Flat Track

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 2, 2020)American Flat Track announced today its newest addition to its family of partners - Falken Tires - naming the automotive titan The Official Light Truck Tire of American Flat Track.

 

For over three decades, the California-based company has been known as a forerunner of high performance radial tire production in the world. With six strategically placed distribution centers across the United States, Falken's efficiency and speed of distribution to its retailers and customers is unparalleled.

 

No stranger to motorsports, the FALKEN Motorsports team competes annually in the world famous 24 Hours of Nürburgring - one of the hardest endurance races in the world. Stateside, FALKEN participates and competes in Formula Drift, Lucas Off Road Racing Series, Ultra 4, USCA and supports grassroots racing in SCCA.

 

Falken Tires will leverage its partnership with AFT in order to display its catalog of products to AFT's audience of automobile enthusiasts and light truck owners. Most notable of Falken's products would be its Wildpeak A/T3W and Wildpeak M/T tires.

 

Engineered for all types of terrain and all weather conditions, the Wildpeak lines use a unique tread design and specifically-formulated compound to achieve aggressive off-road ability and rugged terrain driving without compromising performance on the pavement. For those looking for maximum off-road traction on the roughest terrain, the Wildpeak M/T and A/T3W tires are built for optimum performance in the harshest conditions.

 

"Falken Tires is excited to support American Flat Track and is the first opportunity to share a space with our sister brand, Dunlop Motorcycle Tires," said Nick Fousekis, Director of Advertising and Promotions for Falken Tires. "We look forward to not only increase our brand awareness to the AFT fans, but also help promote this exciting series by airing races directly to over 2,000 Falken retailers through our proprietary streaming service, Falken Digital TV."

 

AFT's action-packed racing will join Falken Digital TV's current programming of automotive racing, the latest automotive news and tech videos on Falken's hottest products.

 

"Falken Tires is a brand associated with high performance and competition and we are delighted to welcome them into the AFT family," said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. "Our fans are strong users and enthusiasts of trucks, so Falken is a great fit for that lifestyle."

“Mr. Daytona” Scott Russell Named DAYTONA TT Grand Marshal

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (February 28, 2020) – American Flat Track is thrilled to confirm that “Mr. Daytona” himself, Scott Russell, will serve as the Grand Marshal for the season-opening DAYTONA TT on March 14 at Daytona International Speedway.

 

Perhaps no motorcycle racing icon and venue anywhere in the world are so synonymous with one another as Russell and DIS. AMA Hall of Famer Russell would still go down as one the greatest American roadracers in history even without his Daytona exploits; during the course of his decorated career he racked up World and AMA Superbike titles, 500GP podiums, a victory in the prestigious Suzuka 8-Hour, and was named AMA Pro Athlete of the Year in 1992.

 

That said, there’s no question it’s his five DAYTONA 200 triumphs that he’s most fondly remembered for. His DAYTONA legend was earned not only based on the sheer volume of his successes (he’s tied with Miguel DuHamel for the most wins in the race’s glittering history) but also the stunning manner in which he won them, even when pit up against seemingly insurmountable odds.

 

Russell took his first DAYTONA 200 victory in 1992 in a photo finish over fellow WorldSBK king Doug Polen despite getting fuel dumped all over him during a pit stop. And then in 1995, he memorably crashed on the opening lap only to remount and chase down his fierce rival, WorldSBK all-timer Carl Fogarty, for the win. And in other years, he was simply in a class of his own, destroying fields stacked with national and world championship-caliber contenders.

 

It’s worth noting that the Georgian’s five wins could have easily been seven; he fell a combined 0.06 seconds short of garnering two additional victories in narrow defeats at the hands of AMA Superbike ace DuHamel and 500GP superstar Eddie Lawson.

 

Beloved for his flashy riding and gritty substance, Russell endeared himself to legions of fans all over the globe with his cocky “Ru$$el” persona and “Screamin’ Chief” helmet design that’s still popular among racers to this day. His presence is certain to further underline the momentus nature of the inaugural DAYTONA 200/DAYTONA TT doubleheader.

 

“I’m really proud to be able to named Grand Marshal for the DAYTONA TT and have the opportunity to come back and be involved again,” Russell said. “I watched the TT last year and thought it was really cool. And I hear they are making some improvements to the layout that should make it even better this year.

 

“It’s awesome to see everybody excited about flat track again and the sport is definitely on the rise. I made it out to the Atlanta Short Track last year, and I could see there are a lot of young, fast guys in the sport that are easy to root for. And it’s probably no surprise that JD Beach is one of my favorites coming from road racing. I expect he’ll be right there in the mix at the DAYTONA TT.

 

“It’ll be a great day. Running the DAYTONA 200 and DAYTONA TT together is going to be really cool. It reminds me of back in the day when they ran the Supercross and 200 all on the same weekend.”

 

Tickets for the first-ever doubleheader - DAYTONA 200 and DAYTONA TT - at the legendary Daytona International Speedway are on sale now. Watch both historic motorcycle racing events during Bike Week at DAYTONA for just $35 when you purchase an advance General Admission ticket online. Get yours at www.americanflattrack.com.
