The 2017 American Flat Track series will be televised by NBC Sports. The one-hour tape-delayed telecasts will be shown on Thursday nights throughout the summer and fall. Live streaming coverage of the races will continue on FansChoice.tv.
With the renewal of the Harley vs. Indian battles of the old days, and entries from Kawasaki, Triumph, Yamaha and Ducati, the flat track season is shaping up as a real bar-banging showdown. The series boasts two diverse and highly-competitive classes, headlined by powerful twins in the AFT Twins class, and race-bred singles in AFT Singles.
“American Flat Track is America’s original extreme sport and NBCSN is the perfect platform to bring it back into the limelight,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “We’re delighted to be partnering with NBC Sports Group, one of the most respected sports media organizations in the world. This partnership represents a huge milestone for the sport and a goal that we have been working toward for a long time.”
NBCSN’s coverage of the 2017 American Flat Track season begins in July, kicking off 18 straight weeks of high-intensity American Flat Track telecasts. The shows will include exclusive features and editorial content telling the story of the world’s elite dirt track motorcycle racers as they battle for glory, while cutting-edge technology, including the latest in onboard cameras, will allow viewers to experience the pinnacle of dirt track motorcycle racing like never before.
American Flat Track will debut with the Daytona TT in March. In addition to the 18 primetime premieres, NBCSN will re-air each of the shows the following week, which will also be available on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.
