The stakes and excitement keep building as we anxiously await AMA American Flat Track racing to begin. This year will be the biggest season ever and it’s doing nothing but great things for our sport. Racing starts March 15 at Daytona International Speedway.
December 19, 2017 – On the heels of record-breaking contingency postings from Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycle (two of the biggest in flat track history), American Flat Track is nearing the $2 million mark in rider contingency, with generous postings from long-time series partners and supporters of the sport Dunlop Motorcycle Tires, Sunoco, Arai Helmet, S&S Cycle, Husqvarna Motorcycles, American Honda, Yamaha Motor Corp., KawasakiMotor Corp. – and more coming soon.
The current dollar availability breakdowns look like this:
Indian Motorcycle: $358,000
Kawasaki Motors Corp.: $356,100
Yamaha Motor Corp.: $211,500
Husqvarna Motorcycles: $88,700
S&S Cycle: $80,500
American Honda: $68,160
Dunlop Motorcycle Tires: $54,000
Arai Helmet: $45,800
These companies – and others who will post in the coming weeks – realize the benefits that come with series support and contingency postings. They include high-visibility brand exposure through AFT’s NBCSN broadcasts, FansChoice.tv live stream coverage, enthusiast media coverage, AFT web and social postings, and fan exposure at AFT events themselves.
By supporting the AFT series and its rider-athletes through such generous contingency offerings, the plans generate additional enthusiasm for flat track racing, and keep the teams’ excitement levels high – a big plus for fans and viewers.
