DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 22, 2020) – American Flat Track announced today a relaunch of its 2020 race schedule featuring doubleheader race weekends and kicking off on July 17 and 18 with the Volusia Half-Mile  at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla. The revised schedule features 18 races over nine doubleheader weekends and culminates in a two-day finale during Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach.

In addition to NBC Sports coverage on NBCSN and live streaming of all 18 events via TrackPass on NBC Sports Gold, AFT has worked diligently toward the goal of having fan attendance at all of its venues. This would include the implementation of new health &  safety protocols that will help provide a safe environment for fans, competitors and staff, including reduced capacity, staggered seating, mobile ticketing, cashless transactions and enhanced sanitation.

AFT officials continue to collaborate with public health experts to develop this comprehensive plan in accordance with all federal, state and local requirements. All race-day procedures have been thoroughly reviewed and will continue to be examined and updated to follow specific guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local authorities.

At all American Flat Track events new guidelines and protocols will include:

  • Reduction in ticket availability to conform with state and local guidelines for sporting events

  • Reserved seating areas to include buffer zones to provide ample space between fans

  • Fans entering the venue will be provided with complimentary facial coverings

  • Enhanced sanitation and disinfection protocols with frequent cleaning throughout the facility

  • Enhancements to mobile ticketing and elimination of printed tickets

  • Cashless, contactless transactions for concessions and merchandise

  • Regular medical screening of staff and competitors

As an additional precaution, there will be no public access to the paddock area and AFT officials have suspended Fan Walk, rider autograph sessions and paddock upgrades for the remainder of the season.  Event-specific health & safety procedures will be updated to meet or exceed state and local requirements as they are updated over the coming months. Through an updated communication protocol, AFT and its promoter partners will provide regular updates to fans via press releases, website updates, social media posts, email distribution and text messaging.

Careful consideration has been given to secure a full 18-round race schedule that is logistically possible for riders, teams and staff, while also providing the opportunity for fan attendance. Following a thorough review of state guidelines and consultation with local officials by AFT’s promoter partners, certain events that were originally scheduled for 2020 have been cancelled. All ticketholders for cancelled events are eligible to receive a full refund or a credit for use at future events. Please contact tickets@americanflattrack.com for more information.

For more information about the revised 2020 schedule, details on receiving credits or refunds for cancelled rounds and how fans can watch American Flat Track action from anywhere in the country, please visit  2020 American Flat Track Schedule Update FAQ.

 Further communication will be made as tickets go on sale and event announcements are made. For the latest information, stay connected via www.americanflattrack.com and AFT's social media pages.

SCFTA Flat Track racing is just one of the racing venues to benefit from the transition from print publishing to Super Digital for S&S Off Road Magazine. In response to the covid induced shutdown of the nation, for the first time in 38 years, S&S Publishing chose not to print a hard copy of the magazine for their current issue, but instead replaced it with the Super Digital version, nearly tripling the page count.  Filled with full color photos depicting off road fun for every type of vehicle it also includes the popular reader photo feature “What I Did During the COVID-19 Shutdown.”
