Let’s get ready to rumble! American Flat Track and Super Hooligan racing roll into Daytona Bike week and kick off the 2019 season! The 3rd Annual Daytona TT race will be held under the lights at Daytona International Speedway March 14. Billed as “Bigger, Better, Faster” the TT track has been completely redesigned by some of the sport’s legends. According to AFT, the new layout features a higher-speed section utilizing the fabled Speedway’s start-finish straightaway on the banked tri-oval asphalt, along with wide-open corners in the dirt that should maximize passing opportunities along the way.
Meanwhile, the second round of the newly AMA sanction Super Hooligan championships will take place on a custom-built short track inside the tri-oval. The RSD-sponsored Super Hooligans features Indian FTR 1200s. Nitro Circus founder Travis Pastrana makes his return to Daytona as part of the Super Hooligan roster, after already competing in the GNCC event earlier in the week.
As if the action on track wasn’t enough, AFT has expanded the UNOH Fanzone featuring vendors, motorcycle displays, Kid Zone with inflatables and rock wall, trike racing and live music from Beartoe and Friends. A fireworks display will follow the AFT Singles and AFT Twins Main Events to close things out.
